    PBM the most unscientific test you’ll ever see

    It’s over, videoed some small snippets of my PBM experiment for your viewing pleasure. Tried to post as one vid but I’m also known as video idiot so bear with me kids

    Hmmm may have to get the four year old next door to help me


      Go to youtube and upload the video there. You may have to create an account if you don't already have one. Then you can copy the URL from the youtube page where your video is and use the insert-video-tool here on AR.com, paste the URL, and post.

        You might as well be speaking Chinese to him. 😂

      I lieu of pics/vids for now these are my experiences and thoughts about today
      -Even with todays meat prices meat is still cheaper than PBM.
      -Took me three grocery stores before I found any PBM at our local Metro, meat they had lots.
      -Ingredients: wow, the A-bomb was simpler. I would hazzard a guess that some of the ingredients in this make smoking the better choice.
      -Consistency, soft really soft, like kid glove soft out of the fridge. Did not appear to have a casing on the sausage so tongs nearly cut the first one in half. Wouldn't cook from absolutely thawed.
      -Cooking, says cook 4 mins per side. Nope, I must have cooked these for a good 20 mins before they developed an appearance I liked. This maybe a bias from only cooking meat, have to see what any other cooks say.
      Taste- Tried the sausage first, found it to be a nutlike taste, normal consistency but just not there.
      Burger patty was a pleasant surprise, cut out a plain chunk, bit of a skin like a Qed burger the taste was there, I did like it.
      dressed it up with a bun, slice of cheese, mustard and ketchup and it was there.
      The only thing negative about it was the center of the pattie was not firm like a normal meat burger,

        Thanks for the report. I have not tried any sausage except that Morning Star stuff that's been around for decades. It sounds like your fake burger experience was very similar to mine. It does taste good but I don't plan on buying any anytime soon although I do with I got in on the IPO.

      At the end of the day, I would not buy PBM again.
      The cost is prohibitive compared to regular meat.
      A big maybe if I invited people over and they asked for it. After all I try to be a respectful host.
      I would eat the patty again if served it wasn't bad when all dressed up.


        Don’t worry, the meat nazis are comin. As I stated awhile ago, there is a war on meat.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
