"Eric the Hairless"

Well, I must admit - it has a bit of a ring to it... ;-)

And there sat Eric looking cool and calm in the heart of the barbeque's roar and he wore a smile you could see a mile...Nope, sorry Eric, I just can't bring myself to write the cremation of the lamb chops. Rey B

this isn't one of those fishing stories, is it?

Well, still sounds better than my crappy steak (too thin, too done, too much McCormicks), yellow squash (too much basil), corn on the cob (ok, that rocked) and boiled red potatoes.

Eric,
I singed my eyebrows and all the little hairs on my face when a gas furnace shot a fireball at me. I ran outside and dove face first into a snowdrift. The eyebrows were crunchy. Pretty funny now. Not so much back then.

that CO2 from the fire extinguaisher is what gave them that taste..and maybe some of the burnt hair to give them that smoky flavor

Dude. Clean the grill once in a while. The greasy drool of a hundred pounds of country style ribs past leads to conflagration.
Just sayin' is all......

When I was a little girl, if you held a blow dryer to a Barbie's hair, it crinkled all up and melted. Is your arm like that, Barbie blow dryer hair?

Damn, one armed Eric, defender of the chops, might be a novelette in there somewhere, be glad Vman has thrown in the towel it would have been ugly...

And you ARE familiar with the conept of tallow and oil lamps, no?

Sheep tallow is some of the best for lighting for the clarity of the flame, low smoke at lamp oil temps and ability to be burned at lower temperatures...
