Re: “The local gay official looks back on year one

Nick, sorry for the late endorsement, but congratulations! You will be the first of many gay politicians in SC, who will change the face of the palmetto state from being backward-looking and obscurantist (not quite sure what it means, but it sounds good!! hahaha) to being part of a liberal democracy, where every person knows they have a stake in the future of SC, according to the principle - life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for ALL!

Re: “Who's who & What's what at Dig South

Does anyone know if there will be an opportunity to meet and greet tonight? I'm out of town this weekend but would love to meet people interested in Dig South tonight. Is the expo open? Or will people just be getting into town and settled?

The five seconds rule for video is bs. I usually know 3 seconds in when something is crap.

Re: “Local businesses are taking the beef jerky out of the gas station

It does take a long time to make jerky, but the time factor is in the drying of the meat. If one is just making it for home, an evening or two, and a very low temp. oven overnight will do just fine. See if you can get some venison. It has almost no fat. Or London Broil from the grocer. Again, very low fat content. Just make sure you dry it out thoroughly or you can have rancid jerky which will make you puke about a half an hour after you eat it. I've been making it for years.

Re: “Local businesses are taking the beef jerky out of the gas station

Mat, have you ever cooked steak or prepared jerky?
Steak preparation: Add salt, pepper, and light oil (if needed). Sear a couple minutes on both sides, then toss in oven to finish to temp wanted. Whole process takes less than 10 minutes.

Jerky preparation: Mix soy, onion powder, pepper, liquid smoke, and any other seasonings you like together to create a marinade. Cut beef into thin strips and add to marinade. Cutting beef into strips is usually easier if you place it in the freezer for an hour, btw. Marinade the beef for 3+ hours in the fridge. After marinaded, remove beef and pat dry. If you prefer cold drying, add beef to a rack and place on a fan for 8-12 hours. If you like heated drying, add beef to a dehydrator for recommended time (usually 4+ hours). This whole process takes 10-20 hours. It also requires more ingredients.

Please go back and reread my statement:
"Not a horrible price, when you consider it takes more work and time to prepare jerky."

I never said it is difficult to make jerky, but it is time consuming and takes a lot more work/energy. Please explain the fallacy in that sentence. I know you like being a smart ass on here, but you should at least attempt to be smart about it.

"And apparently, jerky's not that hard to make on your own. 'You just need a lean cut of meat, a decent marinade, and a way to dry the meat out,' says Jason Burke, owner of local jerky company New Primal. In fact, he got his earliest recipes off the internet. 'You can google beef jerky recipes and get thousands of results.'"

Re: “Local businesses are taking the beef jerky out of the gas station

I understand the process but would still prefer a steak. Good luck to Primal and anyone trying to make a better product.

Re: “Local businesses are taking the beef jerky out of the gas station

I usually make my own jerky, but I do grab some New Primal every now and then (when Im being lazy) and it is high quality stuff. All store bought jerky is expensive, at least this one isn't full of garbage. Don't get me started on the Royal American's jerky. (Mostly because I am way too drunk to remember what it was like. I really need to go the sober once)

Re: “Local businesses are taking the beef jerky out of the gas station

"6.99 for 2 ounces works out to damn near 56 bucks per pound. I think I'd rather be primal with a good ribeye and a beer but that's just a redneck take on it."

2 ounces of beef jerky is about the same as 6 ounces of steak. Generally, it is a 3/1 reduction from pre-dehydrated to dehydrated. Not a horrible price, when you consider it takes more work and time to prepare jerky.

Re: “The Center for Birds of Prey is ready for anything

If a Hawk tried to take a Muskrat in a marsh, he might find the rat too much to fly away with. But in the effort to try and do so, he could get muddied up good and fast. I think you have Nutria down there, as well.

Re: “Hampton Park was once home to bison, otter, and even a lion

My brother and I walked through Hampton Park every day to James Simmons Elem. as kids back in the early to mid 1950s. i vividly remember the zoo with the monkeys, otters and the aviary houses and the bison. We would shake the cyclone fence enclosure of the bison to the point where he couldn't stand it any more and he would snort and snort and charge the fence at us and actually just run into the fence trying to get at us. We would squeal like the scared school kids that we were and hightail it for home as fast as we could. Neat memories.

I saw the zoo in the late 60's. Only one word adequately describes it: sad.
