      In her infinite wisdom, our governor has declared that Michigan needs a day that we should abstain from meat. Behold, the official Michigan Meatout Day!:roll:

      It doesn’t appear to be going over very well.

      Maybe it is in honor of the Lenten season when many Christians give up something until Easter. Last year I gave up red meat. It was tough. I’ve already started cutting back on cheese so I guess it’s cheese this year.

      She did it to placate vegetarian activists.
      Nope she’s from Canada.

      πŸ˜† Dave, the way my luck has been for the last two years, I’ve not been hauling any “meatout”. In fact, maybe I should become a vegetarian activist too. I’m sure I’d have better luck shooting heads of lettuce than I’ve had shooting deer with my longbow!

      PEOPLE OF MICHIGAN- RISE UP!

      May a million barbecues be lit Saturday and the tantalizing, fragrant odor of burning animal flesh waft deeply into the idiot minds who illconcieved this disaster.
      I will give up my hamburger when they pry it from my cold dead fingers!

      GO BACK TO CANADA, MS. GRANHOLM- AND EAT TOFU!!!

      From Washington State, where we have our own Idiot-in-Chief.

      One of my old bowhunting pals would go vegitarian during the season claiming it made him less alarming to the deer. That carnivores gave off a more detectible odor to the deer.

      Way to cold for a barbeque? Ha! My wife and I will grill some venison burgers or steaks in the middle of January, snow on the ground and temp below 0. It’s never to cold for a good BBQ lol. Of course my wife isn’t out there with me but I don’t mind cooking her up a good dinner on the Weber.

      We used to “BBQ” all winter on an outside propane grill, but when temps are really cold it doesn’t work well and screws up the essential coordination between grill check and kitchen cook. Then we tried one of those cheap little George Foreman indoor “grilling machines,” specifically the low-fat version (tilted forward so that fat drains off into a tray as it cooks). And now I plan to give my outdoor grill away! Wife wants a bigger Foreman-type indoor grill. It cooks from top and bottom at once so you don’t have to turn meat, and it keeps it moist. No smoke but the same good “char-broiled” flavor. Perfect for wild red meat which tends to easily overcook on the grill. Way off topic but highly recommended.
