I always thought you just stuck a ball of recycled tinfoil in the microwave and ran it on high for 7 minutes ... :microwave:

... now that I think of it - that would take over 3 days to make a 19 pound bag ...soooo never mind... :-\

Its easier to cut it down, if they are not on it! =))


BBQ is just smoke and beers!
Usually more beers than smoke.
