    That's why I keep an extra set in the camera bag. The chix sounded good though.

    The ingredients and everything else sounded like it made for a delicious beer but chicken(s). Too bad there aren't any pics but my imagination is running wild with how they looked and tasted!! [​IMG]
     
  11. Sorry about your dead battery issue.

    Interesting brine....

    Where do you find fresh lemon grass??

    Very useful for other things too.

    Hi Dale,
    Did I tell ya that is my favorite name?? well...its a racin' thing!! lol!

    The lemon grass is readily available at my local super markets, Ralphs (krogers) Pavillions and then the Asian markets in my area also carry it.
    Sorry it took me a bit to answer..

    If the twins are playing..... I expect some q-vue !!!
     
  16. [​IMG] Yep there are lots of guys named Dale. Some not so young, others young like that Jr guy... [​IMG]

    I lived in Southern California for a few years... Not so easy to find lemon grass in Indiana, many Krogers but no Ralphs... Will check a couple of Asian markets.

    Lemon grass is great for steamed fish. And now that you point it out I'm sure to try it in a brine.

    Hey OlllllllOCJ,

    We are practically neighbors. I'm in Fishers. There is an Asian grocery store at the back of Castleton Mall. Just discovered the place for myself and they have some unique produce to say the least. Its all fresh though and thats what counts. I would think that Marsh would have lemon grass before Kroger would. Just my $.02.
