Ahh, the summer! Time to relax, kick back, and enjoy life. This issue of the newsletter highlights many aspects of the season basically revolving around food. This IS a Discuss Cooking Newsletter after all! So grab a pitcher of lemonade or Ice Tea and enjoy the fruits (and vegetables, meats, etc.) of the season.

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.

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!;)
