CG - They were good. I really liked the sauce.
Always liked your comment "Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county from mishandling a bag of briquettes." Gotta relate this story ...
Wife used two of our stainless steel stock pots as a double boiler a couple weeks ago. They barely fit inside of each other. She didn't pull them apart when she finished and I guess a vacuum between the cooling water and the air pocket created a vacuum and the pots were stuck together. Tried everything that I could think of to get them apart - tapped with a rubber mallet, ice, machine oil along the rim. No luck. Had them in the garage to go into recycling and was looking at replacement pots. Dumb me ... Never thought to reheat them and see if they'd come apart. Put them on to simmer Tuesday night. I got a call and had to go out for a little while. Came home and noticed that the kitchen floor was damp like it had just been mopped. Wife said "You wouldn't believe ..." Her and her ex-sister-in-law were sitting at the table and forgot the pots were on the stove. Pots came apart with a bang getting water all over the kitchen. Said when it blew the pot actually bounced off the ceiling. Good thing it didn't go through the ceiling, wall, stove vent, kitchen cabinet, etc. or break the light fixture. If I would have been home and in my normal seat at the table, the pot would have got me in the back of the head and splashed hot water all over me.
Now, I've had pots stuck together like that, and I've had tight lids do the same thing once a pot cools.
But I've never had them blow up like that. Great story - and I'm glad no one got hurt!
