    this is nothing you should ever openly admit or be proud of, and you really should consider getting your brain scanned for possible damage. may lord xenu guide you, thoughts and prayers.

    as for my unpopular food opinion about american food is that american bbq should be required to eaten once a day at bare minimum, and 15 minutes needs to be set aside daily to pray to a giant fucking brisket in masses like my ppl do over there in mecca

    There’s a restaurant in Tuscaloosa called Dreamland BBQ. It’s practically a state monument in Alabama and traditions in families as the best BBQ you’ll ever have.

    I don’t think it’s that good at all and at least a half dozen bbq places that are better

    Food is good.
    I don't like mushrooms, or pickle.
    Baked beans are fine, but keep them in the little serving tin on the side.
    Mash bores me to tears, same with Shepherds Pie and Cottage pie. Haggis is even more boring, and incredibly chewy.

    Maybe check out your local German supermarket. Mine sell a Hungarian styled red frankfurter thats as close ive found to a saveloy.

    Do you have a Bristol Farms store up there? German sausages are very underrated. They have a decent selection of sausages around Oktoberfest. Their meat dept is pretty good. Occasionally have British foods there as well.

    I didnt mind fish paste but i'll tell you this what that reminded me of...

    Dont know if i buggered up the amount needed but me and the Mrs really do not care for using fish sauce in asian recipes. It is so gross. Done a cpl Thai noodle recipes with it and we hated it.

    No, not heard of Bristol Farms before. I'm going to try my local German place though. Sadly they never answer Facebook messages so I'll have to phone which will be fun describing what a saveloy is, haha.I wonder if they deliver? Managed to get some wicked ostrich delivered the other day.

    Austria: Sweet main courses are some bullshit. Also dislike the obsession with apples.
    Other than that, I love our kitchen.

    Examples of sweet austrian main courses:

    Germknödel Photo
    Palatschinken (I love those though lol, just not served as main course) Photo

    Haha, I use fish sauce in pretty much every Thai dish I make. You do have to be really careful with it though, no more than a couple of shakes. I use it like I use salt. Just at the end. I do like really salty things though. Thai shrimp paste is what you have to be careful with, if it isn't in a paste it's putrid. Made the mistake of using a tablespoon rather than a teaspoon....stank the place out and was gopping.

    Our local German sausage factory has a lunch room. Their sausages are outstanding.

    I tried a cold pork chop there once, ive got the name wrong, and it was like an inch thick deli cut of a pork roast. Delicious.

    Check out their pics here

    EDIT: its called a smoked pork chop

    The Hungarian frankfurter i tried was seasoned heavily with paprika.

    Might be best to get a few of both frankfurters and the paprika sausage, to play it safe.

    many murkins have begun overcooking the fuck out of their bbq for sake of getting a deeper smoke ring. and its a damn shame. particularly when the vast majority of smoke flavor will still reside on the surface of the meat.

    i attribute this in part to the growing popularity of automated pellet smokers

    Agree on both counts, fuck baked beans

    And full Irish is the goat fried breakfast

    Tea with milk is the worst drink in the world, milk in general is the devil's jizz.
    Pork joints, chops, belly etc, taste human to me

    I agree that's an ugly poutine. Even if you want "the works" it usually looks better than that photo.
