Simmer chops in Rosemary and water--20 minutes, add a cup of Red wine Vineger and some Siberian Garlic, minced, tsp of real butter-----simmer for 15 seconds , and then turn to high heat-- Sear!-- for 10 seconds--

I have heard of it but havent seen it in person. I actually prefer the more common and not so hard on my tool blades domestic hardwoods such as oak, cherry, walnut and maple. Chestnut is nice too if you can find it or Butternut. And i like plain old southern yellow or eastern white pine for softwoods or the cedars, red, white and port orford.

Some of those exotics really dull blades but so does black locust whic is also very hard and dense and weather resistant.

Sounds good Ax I too like lamb but the Missus doesnt and kids probably wouldnt try it.


Same goes for a good roast duck, domestic farm raised type. Used to raise a flock of Muscovies and a few Pekings. They are also very entertaining to watch.

Roast Duck!--G'Mother quite often fixed duck at thanksgiving instead of turkey, love duck eggs also--

Ducks are one of my favorite watching birds, comical--:)

It's December 7th., 2011.

Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto warned the Japanese Government against an attack against the U.S.--in my mind--much wisdom there.

Brazilian Rosewood. Very dark in color and very hard. Absolutetely needs to be predrilled at every fastener whether it be nails or screws. Beautiful wood but very expensive and hard to work with. Not worth it in my estimation. Can get the same look with Mohogany at much less price and so much easier to work with. Even with Mohogany you would still have to predrill for your fasteners.
