        This guy is world famous, especially as a server and security expert, and Drupal whiz. But JEEZ!

      BBQCentralShow Greg, Meathead Thanks for asking and answering my question. I have been hearing about this thing of tasting for so many years but have only applied to after everything has been cooked. I had a feeling after I asked the question that I would need to try for myself. I was just hoping that there was at least a chart to start me down the path. I am seeing how important it is to taste even the marinade prior to using. This week I marinated some flap meat for fajitas. I wanted to use the marinade for basting as well so I pasteurized it. I decided to taste it before basting and it was one of the most bitter things I have tasted. And I just marinated our dinner in it. So I fixed it with some turbinado sugar and basted the hell out of the meat in hopes that it would not be bitter. It turned out well. Flap isn't used much and not a lot of recipes for it but it can be used instead of skirt or flank. Pork cushion isn't used much but I am trying pulled pork with it.
      Again, Thanks.
      (Greg, one of your pronunciations of my last name was correct. However, I would answer to any of them.)

        WineFolly is a great resource for all things wine. I know you probably know this, but Google will help you with what-goes-with-what charts, but all of those things are at the mercy of whomever created the comparisons, nothing you will find or read about is set in stone..

      Roasted Brussels sprouts are fantastic. Try adding (salt of course) and a little lemon or balsamic or both! When the leaves just get blackened...mmmmmmmm. That or steamed with tons of cheese.

        I halve them and put them in a pan under rotisserie chicken so they get the drippings and then sear in the fat. You usually have to add water at the start and part way through to keep them from burning. Then a drizzle of honey at the end..

        Deep fried Brussels sprouts are also good.

        Menthol is a pretty broad answer.
