Don't you mean you have asked the mods?

LOL, Well that's all good, I think my fav summer time dish would be A good dog with all the trimmings along with a beer and chips!

Nope he meant we asked the members. A poll was posted here on 5/8/09.

The newsletter looks great. Thanks to everyone who participated. There will be more opportunity to participate on the next one for anyone who is interested.

Didn't see this in the results so far so it must be aggregated somewhere. But my favorite is ribs either beef or pork. They can be a bit of effort but it's worth it in the end. Aged with a good dry rub, smoked or grilled (or both) and finished with a great sauce. Ummm Finger licken heaven Combine this with some good grilled corn, maybe some salad, complement with great sour dough and finish with fresh fruit. How can you beat that?

Bugs, I love s'mores - unfortunately they give me migraine headaches (the chocolate). So if you ate my share you would be doing me a really big favour! :rolleyes:

Try using dark chocolate, The normal chocolate may contain a chemical your brain does't like, and I've heard that dark chocolate is suppost to be %90 pure or pur period.

I use Lindt squares, they come in different flavors, with home made marshmallows. mmmmm.... especially with grand marnier marshmallows and the dark chocolate with orange.

Thanks, Derek.
I do allow myself some dark/bittersweet chocolate once in awhile and savour it like you wouldn't believe. In fact it is the only chocolate I cook with - unless an order calls for something different. Ask Barbara L. about my stash in the fireplace some time :lol:

I just wanted Bugs to have more s'mores!:wink:
