no dualities

"Ultimately there are no dualities - neither black nor white, neither oppressor nor victim.  We are all connected in a journey toward the happiness that is labeled enlightenment."

-His Holiness The Dalai Lama

goin to kansas city

It must be a part of our genetic structure but there's something satisfying about cooking meat over an open fire.  Springtime seems to open our primitive, culinary floodgates with thoughts of different combination's of spices, and new and better ways to prepare mammal flesh enter our consciousness.

There's nothing new about Kansas City Ribs.  They've been around for a long time but I never made em... til yesterday.  All I can say is OH MY GAWD!

A word of warning... If you're of the fast food mindset and want your burgers and dogs the way you want them RIGHT NOW and can't stand the lines at McDonalds because you don't have 5 extra minutes to spare from your busy, drone lives, don't even attempt this.  You don't just throw the meat in the fire and pull it out when the fat turns to charcoal. This is a two-step process that requires a spice rub, sauce, and at least three and a half hours cooking time over low, indirect heat.  I suggest you fire up a second grill for the easy stuff like dogs, steaks, and burgers because this is an all day process and you'll need something to keep up your strength.

If you're interested in the details, let me know and I'll be glad to send you something.

BTW, although it's not needed, I added an ordinary entree fork to this pic to show scale.

Bone Appetite!

zappa haiku

I don't like the way
Life has been abusing me
Just turn on the gas

On her upper lip
Some bovine perspiration
Mental health sister

Sweet Suzie Cream Cheese
Have you gotten your shots, yet?
What's got into ya?

quantum haiku

A tiger ate me
The cat is still in the box
I'll be back right now
