    I'll have to catch that haggis clip.. He does put on entertaining skits. I saw him on the tube yesterday, eating a fried brain sandwich.. I believe they used pig brains.. They used to use cow brains. But with the whole bovine spongiform encephalopathy business, they've fallen out of favor.

    The fried turkey show was splendid...as usual! I'm staying away from the haggis show.

    I really liked Alton until he did the Iron Chef America show.

    I still like "Good Eats" though. Speaking of turkey, has anyone tried his method for brining a turkey? I keep meaning to try it but just haven't gotten around to it.

    I used his brining method a couple of years ago (last time I did a turkey) and it was fantastic!

    I've been doing the turkey brining method ever since the Romancing The Bird episode came out (like 5 years ago now at least). It always gets rave reviews from the family. Amazingly enough it works no matter how large or small the turkey. You just need to make adjustments to the brining time depending on the size of the bird.

    Will you be risking the "fried" turkey? Even with the turkey derrick, I'm still too afraid. :surprised

    I'll have to try brining my next turkey before hickory-smoking it. I always brine salmon before smoking it - I don't know why it has not occurred to me to brine the turkeys.

    Ugh I can't believe people actually eat that.

    Me neither. When I first saw that show on T.V. I thought it was just a spoof. :surprised: I mean, who would eat those "bits and pieces'????:yuck:

    You should have seen what we did with pigs that we slaughtered when I was a kid. NOTHING was wasted. The blood was collected and made into sausage, the large intestine was cleaned and boiled as casing for the blood sausage, the small intestines were cleaned and boiled for regular sausage. Liver, kidneys, tongues, jowels, brains were all processed. There wasn't much left over from a hog when we were done with it.

    I'll never be able to think of you the same way again you blood sausage eating monster! :rofl:

    Just kidding, I'd try anything once... Well, maybe not pig brains... :rofl:

    Haha I remember in kindergarten we made sausage and some of the kids were like " that's what the casing is !?!?", long time ago but I still remember it.

    My father said that he didn't really want to buy pork ribs (I love pork ribs) because he doesn't like pork (Some story about how he grew up on a farm blah blah blah...) I think I will show him turbo-1's post.
