Some proteins trigger a reaction in some people. Chicken is also one of the biggest dog allergens as well. So a heads up to those with dogs that have skin problems. It may well be the dog food being fed.
thanks, I really did not know about this! I don´t have a dog anymore but I mmight again one day :) What about other poultry? I also heard that dogs can´t handle pork meat that well either, is this true?

I bought a couple Guinea Hens once from Whole Foods. Tasted like mud. Tossed them in the trash.
were they pre- seasoned or did you prepare them yourself?
Our local supermarket(s) do marinated meats etc. The `american BBQ´s are weird man. They just put stuff on the meat, put it in a blue, red + white packaing and call it `texan´ or similar. But I don´t think that americans ever make such rubbish BBQ sauces or marinades :biggrin:

It's something with the chicken and not all dogs experience problems. In fact most dogs don't but many have an issue which is hard to determine the cause and most don't even think about the chicken in the dog food as it's one of the most common meats used. Turkey and duck are good. Dogs can eat pork but it has more fat so that's something to think about if you have a dog that doesn't get much activity. I cook up a pork chop for my dog a few times a week month. She loves it and it doesn't cause any problems. I stick to beef and lamb based foods.

I don't know what they're selling where you're at but we have some great barbecue here in America. I've been to Texas and eaten barbecue there. Most of it is exceptionally good.

I do a lot of barbecuing and smoking of meat. I mix my own special blend of seasonings and spices.

It occured to me that I could maybe turn my leftover pizza dough into something resembling ciabatta. Came out way better than I expected and I'm trying not to eat the whole thing. Eating this along with my usual pasta e fagioli.

I can live on bread Douglasfir. I cant make dough/bread for beans. Always too sticky.
You can. You just need to let yourself fail a few times. If it's too sticky then use more flour. If it's too dry, that's harder to fix. But if you keep doing it, you'll get it dialed in. And you'll get a sense of how the dough is supposed to look and feel. So if the dough feels a little sticky then just dust it with flour and fold it over a couple times and punch it down etc. Until it gets that elastic quality. And try longer rising times, like 12-24 hours in the fridge.

Oh, sorry about the shoulders. I guess a bread mixer could help but even then you need to work the dough by hand a little.

I had the sense someone maybe didn't want us posting so many pictures of food which is understandable actually. I was just about to post a picture of my latest [(Ethiopian x Emerald Fire OG Auto) x Emerald Fire OG Auto] F2 grow but I had to abort the mission. Probably try again in May.

this bread looks really nice actually. I´m about to make some bread too but this time I won´t be making my usual baguettes as I really can´t be bothered (too much work and time). I´m just gonna make a `quick ´ and basic one :)
