I use smoked salt when I make ribs in the Instant Pot. Iíve never seen it in different flavors, though. Iíll keep my eyes peeled.

A not new thing which Iíve recently bought for the first time are Smithfield ham slices, packed 4 to a pack. These are whole ham slices and they tast like meatónot fat and salt. You can find them in the meat case. They make a nice ham sandwich. And honestly I donít like most ham. But these are pretty good.

OKóyour turn.

I use these too. I fry them up, dice them and keep in the freezer to use in ham and cheese scones.

Gringo Bandito hot sauce. I have tried lots of different hot sauce brands and this has really good flavor.

The tots would be a guilty pleasure, the pasties were disappointing.

Still to try: cheese curds and walleye.
I work in Wisconsin one week a month. Cheese curds are amazing, and there are many varieties of cheese and breading combinations. Everyone has a favorite restaurant or bar recommendation for cheese curds and I think I have tried them all over the past few years.

What bodies of water surround those isles?

If something of yours is "loose", then you obviously have to tighten... something.
If you don't do some sort of tightening, you could lose something!

We love spices and grow several different basils (Thai, regular Genovese, lemon) and hot peppers (birds eye).
Like you, I much prefer the chicken legs to the white meat breasts. In the US, white meat is advertised as the best. My wife is from Asia and the dark meat is much preferred there; they (correctly) think the white meat is dry and bland. Now I only buy thighs/legs for all my dishes. A nice bonus is that thighs are much cheaper due to the hyping of the breast meat.

Dry cottage cheese, in a pressed block. Not farmer’s cheese, which is good but dry cottage cheese is excellent. It is difficult to find here but plentiful in Europe, where I first tried it.

You know, I lived in St. Louis all my life until 6 years ago, and had never heard the term ďSt. Louis style ribsĒ until I moved to the PNW. St. Louisans tend to barbeque pork steaks, although there are some barbeque places around that do ribs.

I had to Google to find out that St. Louis style ribs are cut a certain way by the packer.

I have made these in my Instant Pot, finished on the grill, and I must say they are quite good.
