No, no. Nothing bad can come from telling me I'm cute. Why, I'm so cute you just can't help but tell me so. They oughta have a national holiday celebrating my cuteness. There should be parades, and lot's of cheerleaders, and marching bans, and big hot-air balloons flying in the sky, all made in my likeness. And someone should bring me steaks, and seafood, and strawberry malts, and...

Naw, no need to tell me I'm cute. My wife does that for me. I cook her gourmet meals and do all kinds of other things for her. Besides, it's much more fun being silly than it is being cute.

Now if you need to give Karma, well, BT always could use more karma. He still has to get over that Charlie Brown syndrome.

Oh Thank Heavens, Goodweed. I wouldn't want the same fate that awaits Maverick to befall you!!!

You know, if I could get in on some of those gourmet meals, I'd do more than call you cute. There would be cold, hard cash involved!!!

Speaking of hot air, I'm beginning to think there's a lot of it being generated by this thread.....

Maverick, I hate to tell you this, but, man........you're just ..........

























BALD!

You call that a hairy shoulder! Blasphemy!

I, on the other hand, am a freaking hairy ape. Literally. My "fur" is starting to go grey, so I've been calling myself a "silverback gorilla" the past few years.

Uh oh. Looks like I'm generating some hot air myself.


Back to topic:

"Pork Steaks" actually are pork butt, sliced on a bandsaw while frozen into 1/2" thick steaks. My other half, PeppA, and her mother live on those, because yes, they are incredibly cheap. They're also really fatty. That's great for slow cooking (like using a pork butt to smoke), but grilling or pan-frying, like my MIL does, well, let's just say I usually eat at work that night.

The past couple of times I've smoked pork, it's been the picnic shoulder, which I remove the skin from. I've found they're even cheaper / pound than pork butt is.

Yep, I never liked "pork steaks" because for years, I pan-fried them with poor results. (I didn't know any better.) But a slow oven can make a cheap cut of meat pretty yummy. I've never tried smoking pork (or any meat for that matter) but maybe I should try.

As far as your other claims, my hirsute friend, all I can say is put your money where your mouth is! It's easy to brag about being a silverback when there is no evidence to the contrary!

Like you, said 'you can almost eat everything from a pig. I love pork rinds. I could buy them freshly cooked in Australia. Man, pork rinds the size of a dinner plate. Mmmmm
My exchange student particularly likes the nose.
