I boil them whole in seawater, 5 min per lb. I start the water when I leave shore, and by the time I'm back it's rocking away. I was using a couple tablespoons of old bay too, but I like plain seawater better. I have one of these bayou classics and that thing will have 8 gallons rolling in 15 min or so. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Bayou-Classic-High-Pressure-Propane-Burner/21709841. I usually like to pick them clean and then serve them in bowls with lemon and butter, but most just eat it straight up. This salad was with apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, stevia and franks hot sauce

it's a plant based sweetener that isn't a preservative like saccharin or splenda. Wife's still on her low carb kick, so I try not to use basic sugars too often and for a dressing with that much intense flavor you never notice a "fake sweet", but you'd notice if I left it out.

Then a few hours of PT to burn it off!!!

Better be some serious pt because so far I've averaged about 110-120 calories burned per mile and that's at about an 8:30 or faster mile during sprint workouts. What these guys cook would easily push 800-1200 calories per plate. Which means we'd be running a half marathon or more to ensure no weight gained! Thankfully much of the calories would be in the form of protein.

Wife and I discuss food intake and energy output during long runs, odd topic but it helps remove the focus from dying towards the end of the runs.

None the less, I'm in for food and PT, always a good time, shoot I'll even provide the meat to be cooked, brisket, some roasts pork chops chicken breasts. Where we meetin up?!!!

Motivation for PT:
1/2lb patty of chuck, short rib, brisket blended with pepper jack cheese and thick cut apple wood bacon. Brioche bun with chipotle mayo, lettuce onion tomato, pepper jack, bacon, friend onion strings and an onion ring on top. one of my favorite creations. I often upgrade it with saut?ed jalapenos and a fried egg.

Last night I made 2lb meatloaf wrapped in bacon. Cooked it on a wire rack over a pan in the oven.... don't know how it tastes will report later when I actually eat it.

Also, I made pies!!! A sweet potato and a pumpkin. We grew the sweet potatoes and the pumpkin was some fancy Cinderella pumpkin.

The pumpkin...


The sweet potato!!!


The meat log...


No idea how any of it turned out, but it was made!

Nate, will do. I have a volcano grill which is the only charcoal we have. Want to build a smoker and pizza oven but never in one place long enough to make it worth it.
