The Food Thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Wire brushes used to clean grills can shed bristles that are then ingested when they stick to the next grilled food :o . Use solid scrapers or balled aluminum, instead.

I'm not sure which is scarier, the ingestion of the bristle or the shitty healthcare a doctor received.

Sure but he could have eaten tons of grilled meat with no harm if somebody hadn't used the wire brush in cleaning. I'm just carping for fun. It was an interesting article that I can understand well. I had a wire brush once and stopped using it because I could see it was losing metal bristles. I always had to after-clean with the aluminum foil. Because a "real" grill doesn't fit into our life, I use a table-top gas grill and make a tray out of aluminum foil as a cooking surface. Not really "grilling" but the method does turn out some excellent fish. I'd highly recommend this one for anybody who wants a small grill that cooks like a big one. https://www.lowes.com/pd/Char-Broil-Gri ... lsrc=aw.ds

He ingested a 1 centimeter long bristle. Evidently he doesn't employ the best grill cleaning methods. Hasn't being careful to remove bristles been a thing with people who grill for a long time. I know it has at my house.

And how many of the rest of us can get this attention? "Trezona called the radiologist and arranged to come in the next morning to compare the CT and MRI scans."

neo tip: if you suspect you've eaten steel bristles from a wire brush, follow up those bristles with a small round rare earth magnet (about the size of an aspirin) and just wait for the magic to happen.

:D Thanks!
Alternative: Drink a cup of bleach. It makes metal rust faster, then just wait for the magic to happen.


The real reason food prices are high:

Crazy Walmart throwing away over 200k worth of food in 1 night. (video)

:puke-left: :crybaby:

Article
... According to Feeding America, an organization aiming to provide “equitable access to nutritious food for all,” corporate food waste accounts for 61% of all food waste in the United States. They claim that “commercial food waste makes up about 61% of all food waste or 66 billion pounds of food waste.” In total, 119 billion pounds of food is wasted in the United States each year....

I was going to say capitalism in action since I have suspicion that the value of that stuff (plus maybe the transportation costs to get it there where it was thrown away, as well as the labor cost to unload and stock and then collect for disposal, along with the cost of the electricity and water and overhead to keep that stuff safe until it's thrown out) will be deducted from any tax Wal Mart pays and may possibly contribute to any tax refund they get from the IRS. Why would Republicans want to get rid of the IRS? Doesn't make sense.

I like the thick and stuffed crust pizzas - Chicago, Detroit, etc.

At home I use the medium thick (Original) BOBOLI crust and add pesto, feta and whichever meats and veggies on a whim. Oddly, pesto is not mentioned once in this "comprehensive" article :x . A lot of space is devoted to Hawaiian pizzas, which are fine by me. Pesto-Hawaiian also works.

What's the saying?

Bad pizza is like bad sex.

Even when it's bad it's pretty good....

.....(though some are better than others).

Speaking of food, this looks like a much better party than Applefest. :lol: :roll:

I live one short block from Pensacola's best NY style pizza place
And
I have been to the original Ray's Pizza - claimed by Santa Claus to be the original Ray's in the movie Elf.
