    Ok bro, I didn’t plan on coming back to this quote of yours. But I’ve got to share a reply.

    I love brussel sprouts and it was a common side growing up. For years, my wife and I have halved, steamed, then browned them in bacon fat and it’s wonderful. Honestly, I’ve never heard of brining them in beer but I trusted your suggestion. I put them in a gallon bag and poured in a bottle of Bud Light. Guess what? I can hardly believe it but they soaked up 3/4s of it and turned out flawless when we roasted.

    Thanks for the tip bro!

    sweet. If I ever open a restaurant in the Perdido Key area, it will be on the menu. I may also drizzle them with a light bit of honey during the final browning stage

    I like to halve my brussel sprouts and drizzle them with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, and salt before roasting them. I'll have to try the beer soaking!

    This one has seen a lot of use and it’s still going strong. I don’t foresee that changing anytime soon...:cool:

    Dad was in the hospital from Friday to Tuesday. We found out the poor guy has lost another 10 lbs. No good for a frail man in his 80s.

    The wife and I decided to cook for mom and dad. If dads not eating like he should, the go all in! That meant thaw a turkey since he always loved a turkey dinner.




    We boxed up turkey, gravy, corn, green beans, mashed golden potatoes and delivered to mom and dad.

    Mom emailed that dad finally ate a big plate of food. That makes me feel a just a little better. The laser sharp Terrasuar made it that much better.

    Thanks Andy. You sure know how to grind a beautiful blade brother. @Fiddleback

    I did a thing today...

    Been wanting to get the stuff I make kydex sheaths for a couple years. Finally pulled the trigger and put this together for my newest F2. Didn't turn out to bad for my first one.

    Does anyone have a comparison pic of a Bushfinger with a Handyman? Haven't found anything.

    After a week of EDC carry I wanted to see how the Scandi edge on my new Pocket Kephart was holding up since this was the first time I've used a Scandi blade for purposes other than woodworking and bushcraft. It saw lots of edge-destroying tasks such as breaking down cardboard, cutting through bags of sand and cement, and food prep on a hardwood cutting board. As the picture shows, the edge is just as pristine as the day it arrived. You can follow the grind lines right to the edge and see how the infinitesimal difference in their heights creates that toothy yet still razor-sharp edge. I'm sold on both the knife and its edge.

    B27884BA-FC10-4563-9F54-FA2E241660A8.jpeg Got this one yesterday, I trimmed a brisket this morning. Trimming took a little longer with 4” blade but fiddleback A2 takes such a nice iridescent patina when exposed to a little animal fat.
