West By God Virginia Representing

It pisses off all the right people, and I get a ton of people who always say something when they see my subversive stickers. Beercan chicken for dinner:

Chicken came from a buddy down the road- was moist as hell. Grilled the corn in the husk and picked the tomatoes while it all cooked. As I noted on the twitter machine, I am eating 5-8 tomatoes a day now and still freezing a ton. Some summers I get sores on the inside of my mouth from eating too many. Totally worth it, though.

Truck Fump!

    JGC@top. Since you are into pickling and canning have you tried achar or lonchyacha masala ( Indian mix of pickling spices). I like to pickle cranberries.
    Your chicken looks delicious. I grill the corn directly on the grill without the husk, it char the corn and then finish it with lime juice, salt and cayenne. Yesterday I made mint chutney with mint from my garden it was awesome!

    @Omnes Omnibus: I wouldn’t call two bumper stickers “covered.” I think those stickers are pretty pithy and concise, actually. Come on out to Berkeley and you can see what a car covered in bumper stickers looks like.

    @schrodingers_cat: I would never argue with anyone about the best way to eat corn on the cob, but my preference is for bare naked corn: no butter, no salt, no nuthin’. Good sweet corn has such a wonderful taste on its own that anything you add dilutes it a bit. It took me decades to realize this. That said, however, I think I will try SC’s suggestion of grilling without the husk to get a touch of char.

    jl says:

    Not an open thread, but “This Fucking Old House” is pretty close to the state of US. From Krugman’s twitter, looks like worries about manufacturing slump are growing. Important thing to worry about is if Trump’s whims, and his ignorant ‘always wrong but never in doubt’ econ advisers blunder ahead with their strong dollar policy.

    The one plus: US consumers can import more goods more cheaply. The millionaire fraud news actors and pundits on TV will feel more like Masters of the Universe, since they’ll feel like kings swanking around buying luxury imports and living higher on trips abroad. So, will bring happy talk on the TV, another plus I guess.

    Minuses: another hit at US export sectors, agriculture, some heavy manufacturing where US excels (e.g., Caterpillar) and high tech manufacturing. Higher interest rates as US dollar attracts investors, and more exports from Germany, and both will further throw European economy out of whack, and it is much more on edge or recession than we are. World economy goes into a real downturn, maybe lead by Europe, US will go down with it.

    Right now risks and downsides of high dollar far outweigh the benefits. It’s a good strategy to juice US economy by increasing consumer spending. Exports in the toilet, investment in the dumps, all we got is consumer spending, so why not do something, anything to juice that a little more (Trump Economy! The Aristocrats!). But the bump in consumer spending will juice the economy little and not for long, the the risks and downsides will kick in.

    I think even if high dollar, any downturn will be mild, but who knows? Shouldn’t go looking for trouble, but that basically sums up the Trump economic policy, if you want to call that junk pile ‘policy’.

    @Ken: You don’t need to inject anything, unless you’re in a rush. And Corn Syrup is not a good idea if you worry about triglycerides.

    We brine per the Cooks Ilustrated/Americas Test Kitchen method; 1 gal water to 2c kosher salt, adjust volume of water per size of bird. Add peppercorns or cloves if you desire, and, yes, sugar if you like. 6 hours for a small piece of poultry; 12 hours for large, 24 hours for the Thanksgiving Turkey (to feed 10 with leftovers). We use a beverage cooler, with a gallon freezer ziploc of ice on top of the water to keep everything cold. Then pour out, rinse-n-dry, and put the bird and a new bag of ice for the same amount of time to let the salted meat relax. Cook it however you like.

    Dry brines (covered in salt) work well, if you have a place to keep things cold. We don’t, hence the cooler and a wet brine.

    Uh…no. You buy a whole chicken from the supermarket. That chicken is dead. Head is off. It’s plucked. It’s ready to be cooked. Open a can of beer. Have a few sips or not. Place chicken over the open beer can/put open beer can up cavity of chicken. Place chicken on bbq or smoker so that it’s upright and “sitting” on the vertical beer can. Let it cook. Voila–beer can chicken.

    He pointed out to me why he had 1l cans of white gas in his truck.

    Punched holes in it, tossed it under the poachers truck, tossed a match and walked away.

    Direct Action. Poetry in motion.

    I may be misinformed, but I was told that there is some reason for releasing a black cloud of exhaust (diesel engines… something-something… build-up must be released…)

    @A Ghost To Most:

    You haven’t truly experienced redneck douchebagism on the highway until your Prius gets coal-rolled by a jacked up white pickup.

    Not in redneck territory, whew. I sometimes get the a-holes to pass me and drive off at 90 mph in a fury, then let them drive point, follow 200 meters behind. Speed traps are found by them. (A Prius (hatchback) will go fast enough if you’re not a hyper-miler) Feel a little guilty [manipulating] them, but it’s so easy. Mostly it’s conspicuous-consumption-brand cars and SUVs though; wealthy-psychopath-heavy commuting route. They’re not so much interested in punishing apparent virtue-signalling as in showing off their own (in their own minds) class markers.
    (Only bumper sticker (magnetic) ATM says “Don’t Believe Everything You Think”. Which does cause bemused looks and sometimes people back off from tailgating ’cause weird.)

    @mrmoshpotato: One of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld books has a line something like “The rise of man was a boon to the Auditors. Here was a species that could be persuaded to shoot itself in the foot.”

    (The Auditors make sure everything follows natural law, and would prefer a universe of rocks moving in neat circles. They despise living things for being unpredictable.)

    @Kayla Rudbek:

    I always call Domino’s the forced birth pizza (which just happens to look and taste like afterbirth); no one is allowed to eat that shit in my house.

    IMHO you should tell the HOA you’re afraid Chick-Fil-A will bring rioting crowds of ANTIFA; nothing tanks property values like cement milkshake projectiles and 24/7 looting.

    Confession: I know everybody hates a purity pony but Mayor Pete’s support of homophobe chicken really irks me. The CEO wants to put his gay ass in a concentration camp but he eats there anyway? The waffle fries are good but I personally love my gay fellow Americans more. To each his own, I guess.

    @Ken: And we’ve been shot in the foot with a 45.
    Bigly.

    Update:
    granddaughter’s SIL head graze wound may have been more serious than I thought; she was taken in an ambulance
    Her teenage child suffered two completely superficial graze wounds, and drove herself to the hospital.
    Waiting for updates on the SIL.

    That’s terrible. I’m so sorry, and will hope their wounds are superficial. Please update as you get information.

    Yeah, this is sick.

    Years and years ago, I fished with a guy, who’s Dad was famous. Wrote about seasons, ( hint).

    You went fishing with Vivaldi’s son?
