Yes Virginia, Jay is Grillin'...

Alright, it's hard for me -right now- to be objective and reasonable about a topic that was tossed into my lap earlier this week...

On Wednesday, we received a letter from our apartment complex. This letter was a basic form letter and was given to every resident in the entire complex. This letter, reveling in all of it's nanny-state/fascist bullshit greatness, stated that we immediately have to get rid of our grill.

Thats right, we are no longer allowed to have a grill within ten feet of our apartment.

I'm super-f'ing pissed.

But, like all things nanny, it's a small change. That's what makes it all the more irritating. Sure, it's JUST the grill today. What's next?

So to show my defiance of such a BS rule, I did some amazing grillin' last night.


Grilled Bar-B-Q Beef

1 Flat Iron Steak (1lb per two people)
Bar-B-Q sauce (Your choice)
---Dry Rub---
3 T Packed Brown Sugar
2 t Ground Cumin
2 t Chili Powder (Not Pure)
1 1/2 t Salt
1 t Black Pepper
1 t Ground Mustard

Combine all dry ingredients together, and rub generously all over Flat Iron.
Allow steak to marinate at room temp for about 1 Hour.
Grill on low heat for 10 minutes per side. When you flip the steak the first time, brush the grilled side with BBQ sauce. When the second side is done, flip and brush with BBQ sauce and cook for about 1 minute.
Allow meat to rest for 5 minutes, slice thin.


I served my Grilled Bar-B-Q Beef with some fresh baked Cheddar Biscuits, and while I pounded out the last of my Cutty, Kerrie had a few Negro Modelo's. To finish it all off, I made a classic Corner Grill Apple Crumb Pie.

It was a very satisfying meal, to say the least. Sometimes the best food I prepare come out of a complete disregard for rules, regulations, of the feelings of the PC thugs. Contempt for authority, what a beautiful thing...

Thanks for the call Jay. Appreciate it. I was in BG last Friday for a few hours. I see that Cosmos is gone. Some new Mexican place now. And I also saw that Madhatter is empty and gone. BG is no longer the same, well especially without us living there.

I have realized that also. There was a time when BG was an adequate place to live, with plenty to do. Now it just feels so hallow.
Truly there was a golden age in BG, and we were very much part of it. Or, we WERE it. I dunno.
Hope things are okay with you guys. Sorry for your loss.

Let's be honest. Both businesses are gone because the people who so "lovingly" ran them didn't really love them.
If they truly did love it like they claimed, they would have done things like: stock what the people wanted, keep track of all the money that was coming and going from the place, not hired us, etc.

Here's to Lesbian Pizzas and Molly Hatchet records. :)

Nothing will ever top that epic "Pink Floyd" evening. Too many clocks can make a man go KA-RAY-CEE!

The irony in all of what happened was that we were both the Solution AND the Problem. Weird, huh?
