    Nantucket's maybe. Not going to find incredible seafood in the upstate.

    I do hear that Harbor Inn may be the best seafood east of Mississippi but you'll have to drop some decent coin. I couldn't afford it but I'd try that out if I were you.

    Harbor Inn is horrific. Don't wish that evil on me. I have a date with a 22 year old that wants to try crab legs and I really don't want to fucking go to Joe's Crab Shack. A guy is opening up an oyster, crab legs, and shrimp place a few steps from my condo that already runs the same in Charleston. Won't be open for a few months though. I'll call the Galley and see what they have. They had live Lobster a few weeks ago that was tasty

    Try out hooters if you're looking for the best crab legs round town. You can thank me after.

    I wouldn't go to Hooters if the food was free. I'm definitely not taking a date there. I'll just take her to Sullivans and hope the menu is decent tomorrow night. We can walk there and back from the condo.

    Prime top sirloin, 129 degrees sous vide, crusted with blackened seasoning. Wifey torched my cast iron a few weeks ago, so had to sear in stainless steel--doesn't work nearly as well.

    Kinda random, but I stopped by Quintin Middleton's knife workshop in St. Stephen a couple Sundays ago to give him some of the white oak from Death Valley. Spent maybe 30 minutes shooting the shit with him about knives; he shaped one of his trademark handles on his belt sander assembly line while I watched the process. Anyway, he had 8 or 10 steak knives on one of the benches he was working on for Sean Brock at McCrady's (Brock, Craig Diehl, Mike Latta, and some other pretty bigtime chefs in Charleston swear by his knives).

    I guess he's downtown delivering them, and just posted this pic:

    I'm having an internal dialogue about whether that would actually be good enough to make a trip to BK for. I'm about 92% sure I'd end up 100% disappointed, but still....

    Didn't suck.

    Picked up the ingredients for the Jimmy Dean hot sausage crockpot dip my wife makes me during the season. So looking forward to being able to kick back tomorrow and watch football all day while destroying that dip. It will be nice being able to eat without my stomach being in knots.

    Lagunitas is one of my faves All their beers are usually good. Went earlier this month when it first opened, enjoyed the beer, didn't enjoy the food.

    Umm. I have a real bog question.

    My bog expert is currently out of the country. His recipe that I hijack calls for 2 boxes of rice (17 serving size) and a 1:1 ratio to broth. I always forget what that means for him. 1 serving of rice per how many ounces of broth? I'm wanting to say 8 oz?

    2 cups (16 fl oz) for every 1 cup of rice

    Maybe he's using different units but I've never heard of 1 to 1

    I general 2 parts liquid to one part rice.

    For better results, take it to the recruiting thread.

    Not going 2:1 is primary reason for bog failure imo

    Two things.

    A. I only look at this thread to see what @Billdozer is doing better than me.

    2. I usually go slightly more that 2:1 for bog, especially if I'm using a pot that is taller than it is wide.

    So you all know, I ended up going 1.3:1 broth to rice. It was fucking awesome and you can't convince me 2:1 is the right way to go.

    It's basically Paula Deen's recipe: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/shrimp-and-grits-recipe-1915426

    I can never find tasso ham, so I usually use prosciutto. Used serrano ham this time, which worked well. I add a little chipotle and ancho chili powder to the sauce, and maybe a little cumin, but basically what's in that recipe is what's on the plate.
