    The other day I made stripper fillets (from a nice 34" 25lb fish I caught :D and a 23" 14 lbs fish) on the grill with some fresh lemon juice, home made spice mix I use for fish, along with fresh baked sweet potato fries and grilled sweet corn with a very very slight hint of cinnamon sugar.

    Is it bad that I made homemade sticky toffee pudding with toffee sauce and skipped the dinner?! It was yummy :)

    No, that's not wrong. You're just not wasting time on dinner.

    I've tried sharing virtually before.

    I usually wind up getting a virus.

    The Big Easy. It's an infrared "turkey fryer-" but I've never used it for wings, ribs, steak, fish, side items, and almost any other fowl excluding turkey.

    You don't have to de-skin it but I usually like to get as much fat off of the meat as possible (especially in a stand up unit like this one because the grease drips and along with is goes some of the seasoning) which includes the small bit of skin that was on it. I got mine from a friend-of-a-friend's slaughter house. I could be wrong in calling what I cut off skin, but it was tougher than fat and rested on top of it.

    It may look better- but I did what you do in a 6 step (if you include cooking it as a process) process. Season (next time I'll do a blackened seasoning), cook, dry rub, cook, glaze, cook, serve. The extra cook time allowed for plenty of beers and laughs with buds and fam. I had to cart it around in my buddy's truck because the civic I have is still filled with books and boxes from my most recent move so I had to turn in my man card until the food was done. The taste is what matters. If you enjoy yours then awesome. My gf's grandfather has a completely different method of cooking ribs and his are delicious as well. This was only a portion of the food we had. There was SO MUCH MORE.

    Probably too much information. I do tend to prattle.
