From the Archives: Crispy Pork Shoulder

this could be the recipe with the best ease/outcome/economy ratios EVER. a pork shoulder is so cheap, and this is so easy, and so goddamn delicious... i usually do it at least once a month.

Poll: How Do You Like Your Burger Cooked?

i prefer medium rare but every time i order medium rare i regret it because my burger comes out medium or worse. dumbasses sending back their burgers because they don't know what medium rare means and the restaurants that give up trying to educate and instead pander to them have ruined any chance of getting what you order in most places. its a sad state of affairs.

Umami Burger in NYC Misses the Point

i fucking love umami burger. that being said, nyc has so many great options compared to LA that i can see it not doing as well there.

Poll: How Often Do You Order Burgers at Non Burger-Centric Restaurants?

this is a huge dilemma for me. due to my intense love of burgers and incredibly high burger standards i'm constantly agonizing over the decision to risking getting a bad burger or having no burger at all. its almost like i love burgers too much to ever order the burger...

Poll: What's the Most You'll Pay for a Burger and Fries?

i am so tired of entitled whiners complaining about pricey burgers. i would pay double what they ask for the black label burger and still be grateful. if you think a burger is too expensive, please quietly refrain from purchasing it and go on your way.

best places to eat walkable from maryland death fest?

(for those who don't know the location was formerly sonar, at N. gay and saratoga)

faidley's at the lexington market is a must of course, i have also had great pies at iggie's up calvert, and its kind of a slog but brewer's art is excellent and worth the walk.

am i missing any gems?
