The Campaign For DA


Trophy Club = Communist Russia

This gal looks vaguely familiar to me (wasn't she a "hey, now" about a couple of months ago?) but she's throwing down some Totalitarian Authority in Trophy Club. She doesn't want capitalism seeking, free enterprise embracing, flag loving Americans knocking on her door trying to sell her junk. Nope, she wants to be able for residents to sign up on a list which will prevent salesman from legally knocking on her mansion. I think the punishment is a trip to Auschwitz or fine, or both. Probably another big government loving Democrat who moved down her here from the north.

Can we have a statewide law to keep Trophy Club and Southlake residents in their respective towns? The walls and gates aren't to keep the people out, its to keep the kooks in.

Barry, be a gentleman and post links to the Newsweek Palin/Biden Bingo Drinking Game or the youtube of Sarah playing the flute. It's up now!

That might take some of the heat off Ano

I agree 7:19 - our Barry, these days is trying to figure out whether he is Democrat, Republican or Independent.

Sort of sounds like the rest of us, yes?

I think a no solicitation registry for Trophy Club it is a great idea. I live in Runaway Bay and in a gated community in Colorado and neither permit any type of door to door solicitation. I enjoy knowing that the only people who are knocking on my door are people who have been invited to my home.

Guess she has no say on who walks up on her sidewalk, knocks on her door and leaves trash hanging from the doorknob. Must be communist Russia.

Zoot: You must spank her well, and after you are done with her, you may deal with her as you like... and then... spank me!

All: And me! And me too! And me!

Zoot: Yes! Yes, you must give us all a good spanking!

Zoot: And after the spanking, the oral sex!

Galahad: Well I could stay a bit longer...

I know folks at Trophy Club. There are only 2 living there that are not hard-core Conservative Republicans.

I thought the castle doctrine allows us to shoot the people who leave crap on your door. Wasn't that the purpose of the legislation?

I see "no trespassing" signs all over personal and business private property in Wise County. Urban or suburban home owners should have the same rights. Or, do we all have the right to walk as we please on anyone else's property?

I hate beautiful trees being cut down and turned into trash I find hanging on my door knob. Also I hate all the junk mail that goes directly into my trash to be put in a land fill. I should be able to tell people to stay off my property and keep their trash. I support the woman from Trophy Club. Barry, I thought you were a tree hugger too. Some of your latest ramblings make me wonder if you are a closet Republican.

In honor of Ano, since the Holidays are coming up, (despite the fact that I could never imagine she (Ano) herself doing this) I give you...

MY version of a Thanksgiving/Holiday Turkey.

So here it if you dare.

Anonynothing Whatever's

Much credit goes out to Alton this and cook it, you sheeple, dammit....

Brining is the best, even better than injecting and smoking, IMHO, because you don't have to keep stoking the fire thru the night. I've done it for about five years now, after seeing it done on Food TV Network, so giving credit to Alton Brown (initial brining process, aromatics and cooking technique), and researching others, here's my recipe I concocted - I even brine other meats with it. NOTE: Feel free to experiment with the brining ingredients - sometimes I add sliced, fresh jalapenos, red pepper flakes, whatever herbs and spices I have on hand - it is SO FUN! And not nearly as difficult as it appears.


1 cup Kosher Salt
½ cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon black peppercorns
1 small onion, peeled and quartered
4 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
6 – 8 bay leaves
2 oranges, quartered – squeeze juice into brine and leave orange quarters in as well
2 lemons, quartered – squeeze juice into brine and leave lemon quarters in as well
Ice cold water to cover turkey – approximately 2 gallons for a 14-16 pound turkey - add as needed to completely submerge, but make sure you mix well before adding turkey
NOTE: If you have a big turkey and need more brine, use ½ cup Kosher salt and ½ cup brown sugar for every gallon of water you need to add.


1. Remove giblets and rinse turkey inside and out in cold water
2. In a very large, clean container (non-corrosive pan or stockpot (stainless steel, glass or a 5 gallon plastic bucket), mix salt and cold water together until salt dissolves. Stir in brown sugar and spices and other ingredients, mix well until sugar dissolves.
3. Totally submerge turkey in solution and store covered in refrigerator for at least 8-10 hours - I prefer 24 hours, if I have the time. Place a large, heavy plate on turkey to keep totally submerged. Turn turkey once during the brining process. If the weather is cool, you can skip the refrigerator - the salts will keep it from ruining.
4. Remove turkey from brine and discard brine. Thoroughly rinse turkey inside and out in cold water, rubbing gently to release salt. Pat skin and interior dry.
5. Heat oven to 500 degrees – yes 500 degrees (or see note).
6. Rub exterior of turkey generously with canola oil, and insert aromatics, if desired.

AROMATICS: Place these ingredients inside the cavity during roasting - combine all, and microwave for 5 minutes on high before inserting:

1 red apple, sliced
1/2 onion, sliced
1 cinnamon stick
1 cup water
4 sprigs rosemary
6 leaves sage
(Sometimes, I add celery and carrots, if it's a roast I am brining!)

NOTE STEPS 7 & 8 - skip the 500 degree step if you aren't up to it, and just cook until the meat temp is right - this is NOT for the faint of heart, or small, weak persons - you could burn yourself, but this makes the skin nice and crispy and beautifully browned - .

7. Place BREAST SIDE DOWN on roasting rack and roast on lowest rack of oven at 500 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, turn turkey breast side up and cover breast with double layer of aluminum foil. Be careful – the turkey will be very hot.

8. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and continue roasting until an instant read meat thermometer registers 180 degrees F in the largest section of the thigh (avoid hitting the bone), and 170 degrees F in the breast.

NOTE: A brined turkey cooks faster than a normal turkey, so check the temperature frequently. Let rest 20 minutes before carving.

I actually brine and cook a whole turkey according to the Cook's Illustrated method but using Nigela Lawson's brine recipe.

6qts water
1/2c table salt
3T black peppercorns
a bouquet garni
2T white mustard seeds
1C superfine sugar
2 onions, quartered
2-3 inch piece ginger in 6 slices
a cinnamon stick
1T caraway seeds
4 cloves
2T allspice berries
4 star anise
1 orange, quartered
1/4 c. maple syrup
1/4 c. honey
one bunch parsley stems, opt.

Um, it's called recycling, you closet ree hater.

Anyway, there are more trees here now than when the white man first started trying to make something of the place.

In looking over this blog and reading past and present posts, I have come to the conclusion that it actually contains nothing of substance but instead only shows me that this "man" (and trust me, I am using that term quite loosely) is very disreputable and writes nothing but pointless and worthless thoughts that have no value and frankly shouldn't be wasting their time in continuing to embarrass themselves with this pointless blog.

Barry Green said...

Other than the "disreputable" part, I agree with you.

Well, all y'all just shut up for a bit, and listen to me tell you how appreciative I am that mzchief contributed to my brining ingredients collection.

Gems like that are why I keep checking Barry's blog.
