Chili - Don't stress my friend, everyone is entitled to what they feel. Even if it isn't mainstream.

What I tend to do when I feel I "inserted foot in mouth" , is wait for for the other shoe to drop (the listeners), say.

In this case, no one even thought anything like blame... Now the other thought I have is If you say Alton Brown doesn't know how to cook, "thems fightin' words" ;-)

What are "cat head" biscuits?

If you like cats you may not want to know.

If they are made right when you pull some dough off it looks like your skinning a cat and your down to the head. (At least that's what I was told.)

They are simply biscuits as big as a cat's head...nothing more, nothing less. A perfect breakfast is country ham, red-eye gravy, grits (preferably stone ground and rich and creamy) and a cat head biscuit with honey on it. The salty from the country ham, the sweetness from the honey...too good!

Wow Kitchenelf,
Those must be some BIG biscuits!
Yeah, ole AB often uses humor in his shows. That's why I like him, he even makes jokes at his own expense.
