Gourmands & Gluttons

While other groups may focus on the manly trait of self-discipline, it still holds true that one of man's strengths is his capacity to eat. A lot. Here you can reminisce about superb meals you've enjoyed and share tips on where to get a good feed.

I can't believe there wasn't a group yet dedicated to eating in a slightly excessive manly way. I want people to share pictures too, of exciting, exotic, or excessive meals

I'm experimenting with putting together a 'pie chart'- a map for us all to add these good value, hearty eateries to, so that anywhere in the world you know where to go for a slap-up feed...

Just a picture from last year, as it's been such a while since my last visit here.  This is the Copper Kettle Cafe's Mega Burger, eating of which wins the eater a free meal at a later date.  The challenge isn't timed, though I ate this in ten minutes, as I wasted a minute or so pondering how to attack it...

Very nice Dallas :)

Have never eaten it, seen it or made it makes it a little hard. The meat was great. Depending on the age of the boar really determines how to cook it and I had no idea how old it was. Wild game is tricky. BTW I love Ostrich.

Hmm... sounds to me like an imbalance in your seasoning. Shame. But then I've ruined an interesting or unusual piece of meat before now for not knowing how to cook it. First time (and only time so far) I've cooked ostrich, it ended up like leather.

LOL!! No food poisoning. I did something wrong to it. Was pretty bland and I used to much flower. so it kind of got gluey. It smelled awesome, which is weird it was bland, and the red wine with the blueberries turned it a purplish gray. The boar was good though. I should have just stuck with a roast. Back to the drawing board!!!!

Hey Jim, it's been two weeks. I'm getting a little worried you gave yourself food poisoning now.

Will do. I'll take pictures also. Boar is a weird thing. Depending on the age they suggest marinating it for 24 - 48hrs. Wasn't sure how old mine was so I went the safe route.

Let us know how it tasted!

Almost time to cook :)
Comment by Jim on August 28, 2010 at 11:54am
OK. So what I'm leaning to are these 2.

Since I actually have a rack there's this one:

Or this one, which sounds better but would have to improvise since I have a rack:

I really want to try a Cinghiale but I'm scared of the chocolate.

What would be considered physically weak?

I'm obviously not a gym rat and I'm very ignorant about fitness, but I am trying to improve my health and overall body composition. To skip the point, I'm not certain on how to have a decent workout and what defines someone as physically strong. Though I'm not entirely sure of what I can do (or what my max is), the last amount of weight I've squatted was 205 lbs. which doesn't seem to be a lot since I believe most people can squat twice their weight (I weight 234 lbs. or so). I did 10 reps of…See More
