Re: Hamburger Master Thread I cut down on red meat but, I used to cook 1 onion together with shiitake mushrooms in a frying pan till caramelized.

Nowdays I cook burgers in my cast iron skillet, i dont form a patty, rather I grab the meat in a chunk, salt it and form the patty by pressing it to the skillet for contact heat, once it sears I flip.. my burgers come out medium done, mostly because I was raised on raw meat and bacteria paranoia and though my steaks are bloody rare eh i dunno..occasionally i do medium rare.

see http://www.seriouseats.com/2014/03/the-food-lab-maximize-flavor-by-ultra-smashin.html

I trust a restaurant in that the meat was freshly ground that day and less bacteria exposure

my friend yed does http://www.seriouseats.com/2015/08/the-food-lab-complete-guide-to-sous-vide-burger.html

Re: NY Post Article On Satmar Couple's Open Marriage (Interesting Articles Split) My dream would be to teach jewish history in relation to rituals.

In absence of the Bait Hamikdash, kjudaism became a religion of rituals. The excitement of daily practice is long gone, holidays are no longer as exciting, go to the kotel on tisha b'av and how many jews are really crying ?

Rav JB soloveitchik writes a lot about this, I love his passion expression tempered by intellect, his brisker lineage, influence of a chabad melamed and reconciling his secular encounters and huge intellect.

Chabad didnt do it for me because without the Rebbe, its hard to stay connected.. just as above with bait hamikdash. Also chabad philosophy didnt cater to my intellect.

Being non religious can be any thing really but yes its mostly the appeal of pleasure without guilt, as Eliyahu said "how long will you serve both baal and God ?"

Pleasures can be anything from trayf, to wanting to party on shabbat, sure a lot is sexual, but its mostly a lack of connection and caring, a bit like how marriages break down, at some point people just dont care any more so they leave.

For me, studying the Mesorah and the intellectual supremacy of the Rav, the Halachik mind, the Halachik man, the lonely man of faith etc coupled with my knowledge of Chasidus is really what keeps me grounded.

Also, the frum worlds really needs to step back and re-evaluate itself, never was being religious so heavy in rules and rituals, its like a guy that buys his wife fancy gifts but cant be bothered to listen her speak and sincerely be there for her.

Re: Hurricane Irma
but what if I tell you that rosh hashana is the next yom tov that's coming up?!
And happens to be we blow the shofer then, aside for the 30 days before R"H which we blow after shacris.
 What a coincidence I must say!?

A guy sees his new neighbor out in his backyard, so he decides to get acquainted. After introductions, he asks the new neighbor what he does for a living.

The new neighbor says, "I'm a professor." The first neigbhbor then asks, "Oh yeah, what do you teach?"

"Logic," the professor reponds.

"What is that?" the neighbor inquires.

"Well, let me see if I can give you an example...you have a dog, right?"

"Yeah, that's right," neighbor #1 responds.

"And you have children too, right?" says the professor.

"Wow, right again!" exclaims the neighbor.

"So, then you must be married and that would make you a heterosexual, right?'' proclaims the professor.

"Unbelievable, you're absolutely correct. How do you know all this about me?"

"Well," the professor says, "I observed there was a dog house in your backyard, so you must have a dog. I also saw bicycles next to your garage, so you must have children. And if you have children, you are probably married and if your married, you are most likely heterosexual... it was all logical!"

The next afternoon, the neighbor runs into his old friend. His friend asks if he has met the new neighbor. The man says that he met him yesterday.

"What's he like?"

"Well," the man says, "he's nice and he is a professor of logic."

"Oh," says the friend, "what's logic?"

"Maybe I can give you an example. Do you have a dog house?"

"Why, no, I do not," responds the friend.

"Well, then," proclaims the man, "you must be gay!"

Re: Chicago Master Thread
Sorry, but nobody told you to go to Shallot's and order a burger. I can also assume that Shemtov's makes good pizza or that Fuego makes good steaks, but those would be wrong and I should've done the research into what's actually good there beforehand.

If you wanted recommendations, you should have read this:
http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=83267.0


nope, thats BS and one of the most moronic stances and exactly WHY the kosher restaurant scene sucks.

Flam makes great wine, their noble is amazin but very expensive, their classico is good and cheap.

I ddidnt go to Shallot's, order the kids shnitzel and fries and then cry.

I ordered sushi which was excellent but roughly the size of  a half normal roll.

A friend ordered a burger at izzy's bbq and said it sucked, I said but they make amazing brisket, he didnt budge, no restaurant has any justification in selling a sub-par product, certainly not an expensive restaurant.

Your logic "who goes to shallots and gets a burger" my logic "what kind of highly rated restaurant serves medicore items on their menu"

As for your food recommendations, I think people are morons for buying crappy wine and I just as much fault restaurants for selling it, we brought a bottle of Herzog Chalk Hill 2008
