In Topic: It sucks to be a good cook!!

20 March 2017 - 04:32 PM

With the winter being so warm this year both the crab and crawfish season has been great. The crawfish prices hasn't been bad either, $50 a 35lb sack for the last few months but the price is going up as it always does for Good Friday and Easter. After Easter most of the crawfish farmers stop catching because the price will drop too low for them to make money and it'll be time to plant rice.

 

The Wildlife & Fisheries closed the commercial crabbing for a month because they were worried about catching too many, the recreational limit in Rockerfeller Wildlife Refuge is 12 dozen. A boat is nice but not required to catch a limit. You can drive and set lines baited with chicken parts and use a net to catch them. I've been there at day break and left at 9AM with 12 dozen many times, that's almost the rule if you catch the tide moving in the right direction.

 

 

The plants didn't make it in the ground today either, it sucks getting old. I woke up with a sore hip and was lazy till the afternoon. I did retill 9 90' rows in the garden, tomorrow I'll till a few more times to get the soil fluffy the way I like it, fertile and probably plant okra, PHP's and maybe set in some tomato plants. I'm gonna wait for the peppers another week just to be sure we won't have that random freeze but if the 10 day forecast looks good next week all the peppers go in dirt.

This is from a market gardening handbook.

Next time you cook dogs just leave them in the pack and put them off of direct heat, you'll be surprised.

I cooked some 2.5 hour pork ribs last night on the Old Smokey but I cheated all the way around.

I have both and both are needed at different times. Gas is so convenient and I also wrap woodchips in foil to get that smokey flavor but it's mostly BBQing on the pit.
