Pork or beef? I love beef ribs because you really feel like a dinosaur or cave-man eating those big boys but pork ribs are good also.
Pork is not my favorite food, but it's very flavorful.  Even just a little can really season up a soup.  Anyhow, I've decided to eat pork a little more often, even though I know it's "unclean".  Evidently, it has 3 times as much potassium as other meat.  Does anyone know why some pork is cured, but port patties are not cured?

30 minutes to rib time. They have been smoking for 5-1/2 hours and my belly is rumbling. Cervantes was correct. Well, someone was.

Booze and meat, slow down big guy!!!

You get your pork from Turkey? Seems like a long way to go. It must be good.

How long do the fish suffer before they die?

Well, if Iím keeping them they will be stabbed in the head and die quickly.  I usually donít keep them so I make sure they are swimming ok then release them.  But, perhaps I should just stab them all in the head and toss them back in the river.  That way no one will be tempted to eat them.

Different type of fishing- but I'm suspect about the whole bladder-deal you have to do if they aren't of proper length/size down here in the Gulf. Supposedly helps them live but still, really? Good luck, and good fishing! Post pics!

Since they are Salmon we will spend as much time as necessary to resuscitate them.  I caught a 33Ē one last year that looked fine but went belly up after a few feet.  We spent 10 minutes moving water through it gills until it could swim away.  If one is on the line for more than 15 minutes weíll break it of so it wonít tire itself to death.

WOW

I'm totally catch and release, like we do with illegal aliens,  or catch and eat, depending on type, where/what we are doing, etc. But never waste or want to hurt. Though will kill or shoot some non native or trash fish. I'm just suspect of some of the bladder-release deals for deep water species because idt most know how and if , really, efficacy. But I'm no expert. Supposedly when done it keeps them alive.
Have a good time and good fishing!

It makes me so mad how salmon fishermen here (including my brother) treat the various cod-type fishes (good-sized ling and another not so spiky I don't have a clear ID on) they accidentally catch as nuisances and let the poor bloated things drift away.  They are good, noble fishes in their own right and I could make a lot of fiskeboller out of one of those.

Sounds like the head stab goes quickly.  Nice of you to prevent undue suffering  :).  I knew my dad was wrong just to let them suffocate in a bucket.

Hard to believe but I petted a live, wild Cooper's Hawk today. I was driving around when I saw it on the ground ripping up and eating some prey. I decided to stop the car and take some pictures, thinking it would probably fly off as I approached. But surprisingly it didn't seem to care. So I got closer and kept snapping shots. Still unfazed by my near proximity I though what the hell, I'll get on my hands and knees and see if I can touch it. It let me pet it a bit without seeming bothered at all. So I stroked its beautiful tail feathers while it continued eating. So strange. Finally, I guess to convince myself this was a real bird and not some Russian bot droid, I used a twig to try and pry the small bird it was eating from its talons. It was not into that, grabbing it's food and flying about 3 feet away and proceeded to ignore me again. It must have been a female.

Awesome and weird that a raptor, non-initiated would allow person so close?

I wonder if the bird(s) was effected/affected by the smoke and fires? Or just the lack electrical lines and cell phone signals that maybe, by now, they have adapted so disoriented? And =then= gone and so system gets off-balance? Or if it was just your mojo or vibe? I only get birds that close when I actually hit them or, they fly into windows. Which, usually, they recover. Not always. Sometimes, I never knew it! But sun angle and you see "bird dust." Once on a big picture window I had a "dust" impression that rivaled a late 70's T/A. Big owl had hit in full wing-spread! No body below so I think he just "walked it off." Or, I guess, flew it off.

I like stories like this.  I'm glad you shared it, and the photo, with us.  :)

Thats what they make "fish bonkers" for. you hold the fish with your thumb on one side and your index finger on the the other of the fishes "neck" just behind its head with the "web" of your hand over the topside of the fish. Then you take your fish bonker and while firmly holding the fish with your non-dominant hand, you firmly strike the fish in a downward motion squarely atop the fishes head.  Instant blunt force to the brain coupled with a spinal discontinuity.

I prefer my port originate in Spain (or is that Sherry?) Where are Turkey and Portugal?  ???


*Least Pate be accused of corrupting me on the last gabcast...
Does anyone know why some pork is cured, but port patties are not cured?

I figure if it were a female, you would be missing a chunk of your index finger. Cool story.
