In April, my youngest son Nick and my friend Scott departed Utah for Oklahoma City, OK. Final destination was a small town to the SW (about an hours drive) called: Gracemont. Final destination was: No Mercy Hunting.

 

Nick got the first kill from a tree stand, followed shortly by me from a stalk, then Scott. The final pig was the largest of the entire hunt, a sau on the run. My weapon of choice: Henry .45-70 with Hornaday 335gr ballistic tip.

All told, I shipped back 150 pounds of processed pork: Chops, ground pork, roasts, etc. Delta unfortunately didn't have a clear policy on how to check-in coolers with frozen meat and the check-in process was a total cluster.

Note: A while back, I posted about how much I loved Dominos Pizza. I was dismayed to discover this story today:

In its trial by social media, Domino's Pizza seems to already have been found guilty.

Two employees of the Domino's in Conover, N.C., made a video which featured one of them putting cheese up his nostrils (and then putting it on a sandwich) and passing a salami around his wind-passing backside (and then putting it on a sandwich).

The employees, Kristy Hammonds and Michael Setzer, have been fired and charged with delivering prohibited goods.

Yet this is not the first time employees of fast-food outlets have used YouTube as an emotional outlet from their rewarding work.

Last year, Burger King fired an employee for making a video while bathing in the restaurant's kitchen sink and uploading it to MySpace. Yet the brand seems to march confidently on.

Why is this Domino's video appearing to have such a deleterious effect on the brand? Perhaps it's that it has simply gained a viral life far beyond its makers' expectations.

Or perhaps it's that in recessionary times people are relying far more on fast food to get through their budgetary week and are desperate, despite stories to the contrary, to know that these restaurants are sanitary.

While Ms. Hammonds and Mr. Setzer are at pains to point out that the food was not actually served (and, of course, we all believe them), the blog Good as You seems to have uncovered four videos in total featuring the pair.

And nauseating viewing they really do make. Especially the one showing, presumably, Mr. Setzer wiping a dish sponge on his bare backside.

Domino's first reaction, one of caution, has now been replaced by something that bears a resemblance to panic.

Domino's President Patrick Doyle has posted his own video to YouTube, in which he apologizes for the incident and attempts to reassure. His arguments seem reasonable.

However, as you watch it, you wonder if the video just might make things a little worse in the short term. Mr. Doyle fails to look into the camera. Instead his eyes peer at 45 degrees, presumably in the direction of a script. The effect is not reassuring.

What is even more unfortunate for Domino's is that the posting of the video apology has caused even more YouTube commentary about the company, some of it extremely unflattering.

And to think that just a couple of days ago, Domino's was madly touting its Bailout Package. It's Big Taste Bailout Package, to be precise. Will you be nosing through the Domino's menu tonight?


At least every two weeks (for as long as I can remember), people ask for my recipe on Prime Rib. Oddly, it's the easiest thing to make and serve. This recipe works for any size Prime Rib. We average 6-12 pounds, depending on how many we're serving.

Roast Prime Rib of Beef with Horseradish Crust

Here are the simple instructions:

  • Pre-heat your oven to 475F
  • Allow your Prime Rib roast to reach room temperature before preparing
  • Find a baking pan that provides for catching the fat drippings
Prepare the following rub ingredients:

  • ~5 Garlic cloves
  • Your favorite horse radish (we prefer the natural/raw/HOT)
  • Ground black pepper
  • Kosher or Sea salt (we prefer Sea Salt)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • A bit of dry white wine
  • 1 Tbsp of flour
  • 2 Cups beef broth
Mix these ingredients into a paste and rub on the meat thoroughly.

Place your Rib Roast in the pan, bone-side down (acts as a natural rack).

Cook at 475F for 15 minutes (to sear the meat) and reduce oven temperature to 350F.

Cooking time is contingent on the size of the roast and the internal temperature. Meat is done when internal temperature (center of meat, not touching the bone) reaches 140F (140F = Medium Rare).

After the meat reaches this temperature, remove from oven and allow it to sit for at least 15-20 minutes.

Slice and serve!
