    I've never tried a pressure cooker or a smoker. The crock-pot and gas grill is where it's at. Nothing like going from raw to med. rare in 10 min, grilled to perfection. Hell, I think I let my grill warm up longer than it takes to cook the actual steak.

    Pressure cookers are great for fresh veggies IMO.

    My Foreman used to take 20 mins to heat up. I tossed it in the trash. No electric appliance can replace a charcoal/gas grill IMO.

    Replace, no. But, we use the Foreman here in the office... it's a lifesaver (only other cooking device we have is a microwave).

    Once you learn what to and not to do, it's not bad. Cleaning it is a bitch if you don't have the removable grill surfaces. But, I found that the removable versions don't cook for ****.

    That is what I have and it doesn't cook as good as my old one. I replaced mine with a new one. My old one was just old!

    Cleaning's not so bad for me. I just use a wet sponge and mop everything into the grease catcher while it's still hot/warm.

    Holy ****, I've never had a steak that tender. The rice was perfect.

    I'm hooked. If you all want good, easy food, get a slow cooker.

    Are there any super tasty recipes I am missing out on here?
    We have used one for years. They are great. Load them up in the morning and let it cook all day. You will have a great meal ready when you get home.

    That's the biggest upside, IMO - set it and forget it.

    But I just did a refeed last night so let me get off my high horse
    3190mg of cholest??? That is insane! What does it taste like? I've never really heard any bad things about cholesterol. I know the cholesterol in eggs is good. I need my grains,fruits,and veggies though...damn

    I recall seeing a video on the web one time where they bring a live monkey out into the dining area. They take the monkey and lock him in a table so that his head is the only thing exposed. Then guys start bashing on his head with little hammers. They eat the brains right there out of the monkeys head. Something about it being warm from the body temperature etc... One of the most ****ed up things I have ever seen.

    Tastes pretty good, I still prefer fresh beef/lamb brain but it's not bad.

    I quit eating grains, fruits and veggies....that stuff sucks.

    Fruits and veggies suck? I mean to each his own but we are omnivores. Where do you get fiber from?

    I've seen that video. Farked up. If the monkey wasn't beat to death, it wouldn't be bad. Hell, I'd eat some brains... um, maybe cooked brains.

    Reminds me of...

    Exactly, while Omen may rationalize that we all have to eat. We are a smart enough society to use a humane quick method if we must kill. Beating an animal that can't escape in a slow brutal manner is not the way!

    I eat ZERO fiber, 80% fat keeps me regular.

    I've killed over 100 animals, I have zero patience when it comes to killing that leads to eating......

    I know the video he's talking about and they were "scarred" or reluctant to kill the monkey, which is why it was inhumane. I've finished off, slaughtered and hunted with a knife before, gotta be quick and brutal....to be humane...ironic....
