I’m a Groupie for Grouper ….. Chicken of The Gulf !
Where will you be riding?I'm planning a ride with my friend Dan. Finally, our personal worlds have aligned and we are both available this coming weekend. His favorite sandwich is grouper so I have two possible lunch destinations that I know to be consistently good, not selling you Tilapia like they do at the tourist locations. Just so happens my wife will be out in that area antiquing with her girlfriend's.... We may all be able to meet up for lunch. It's only Monday and I'm excited already, bike is clean, tire psi and fluids are checked, fuel is full. Blinker fluid is full, I'm ready to kick the tires and light the fire. Excited like a child for this.
I remember those Starkist Tuna commercials..."Chicken of the Sea" 🤣I’m a Groupie for Grouper ….. Chicken of The Gulf !
Good stuff, if I lived in Washington, I would be enjoying Halibut and King Salmon.As far as fish go, being that I am Danish, I find Cod tasteless. For white fish I like Haddock, Grouper, Flounder, Snapper, Mahi Mahi and a few others like Pollick and Walleye. Pink or red fish I like Salmon and Steelhead/Trout and Kokanee . On the west coast we get a few different salmons.
Back in the 1970's, 80's and 90's my family were 'Honorary Members' of the Muckelshoot tribe and I would go out once a month with the tribe and get the King Salmon. We would clean and skure them and put them in a salt and honey brine for 4 hours then into the smokehouse for 2 days of alder smoke at about 130F. We would baste them with honey every 6 hours. I'd get 4 twelve pound halfs for my time.
If you think you'll make it there LMK, know this guy with a SW600 that love to meet up, just 50 minutes away, kinda asking for a friend. (he also has a B400, if the big H bike is not allowed )Either heading to Floral City
The Ozarks are calling you, my friend 🤠 Sorry to hear you got sick from food poisoning. It happened to me once after eating at Waffle House. I got so violently ill that I ended up on the living room floor and had to have the ambulance come get me. It was a weeks long recovery. Won't eat at Waffle House again. Hey if you folks ever get around northwest Louisiana let me know. I work at a restaurant and we have some REALLY GOOD fried catfish!!!Well, it happened. I was miserable. This about killed me today, it was hot as Hades, so glad we stayed close to home.
Well that's too long! 🤠Cajun fried Catfish, OHH YEAH BUDDDY!!!
Been over 45 years since I was down in LA and Louisiana.
