Wait. What? Where is that arrow located? When I click on that down arrow to the left, it does nothing...just a notice pops up on the date of my post on the thread.

I need a better tutorial.

When the woman of the house isn't happy with the man of the house, discretely take the "lesson learning" to the kitchen. Start by taking out the bread, cheese, meat and condiment of choice and setting it on the counter. Instinct will kick in and you will have a sammich in no time and she will forget what she was lecturing you over.

After cleaning and drying your coolers put a piece of newspaper in them before storing. They will smell fresh and clean when you go to use them the next time.

To perfectly line a pan with aluminum foil just turn pan over and line the backside with foil first. Then take foil off and flip pan right side up and drop foil in. Fits perfect.

For deviled eggs put your mix in a big zip lock and cut corner off of bottom of bag and use bag as an icing bag to fill eggs in.

And speaking of bacon, did you know that a VERY light dusting of flour will keep it from curling while frying? It helps keep the bacon flat so you can avoid those ''bubbles" of rawness in an piece that's otherwise crispy.

Crispy bacon is the devil's work. You can also cook a buttload of bacon in the oven.

I got another foil helper cooking tip:
If you are using a cookie sheet to roast or broil something in the oven, lay a sheet of foil on the bottom of the pan before placing the meat or vegetable on the cookie pan. It makes cleanup real easy!

Throw eggs in the smoker when you're doing that next brisket. Pull them off after about two hours, peel and eat. You'll never want hardboiled eggs again.

When you eat crunchy tacos (usually 3 or more) put a soft tortilla under them. Bam, extra taco when you're done. You can thank me later.
