New Orlean's-Style Olive Salad

@KevinZ: Where did you come up with that? If youre talking about pressing the sandwich after making the olive salad you dont need 40LBS:-) A couple of bricks would work well but if you want to put a sack of cement on it and keep it cold you would want to have a walk in refer.

A Better Big Mac

For those who care the Maggi seasoning sauce is currently being made in CHINA by Nestle! (says so right on the bottle) I was thinking if it was just for color Id use some Kitchen Bouquet but from the comments its a yeast compound were looking for so I guess I'll have to buy some Marmite.

@Dylan's Alias: I use an older anodized aluminum griddle quite often and just like your BBQ grill you would need to learn its characteristics for hot and cold spots....

Order a Sloppy Joe in Jersey and You Won't Find Ground Beef

@squo11: Nope, youre the only one:-) Just kidding - this obviously isnt something one would want to eat every day if they cared about being healthy but the sandwich does have cabbage (veg) & its rye bread. You can find obscene food in many parts of the world but things like this make America America!

The Baking Steel Griddle Has Arrived

Heres the million dollar question that as of 90 comments nobody has bothered to ask (lest I missed it!). What country is this made in? For the $ I sure hope it aint China!

Tender and Beefy Chicken Fried Steak

@dzs501111: Try Peanut oil & try to not heat the oil to the point of smoking - use a thermometer in the dutch oven to be sure the oil is at the right temperature and you should avoid any issues.
