    Put me on the list to chase down - I got my thanksgiving day bird this past spring the third day of the season. It dressed out at 17lbs, which likely put it in the 21-23lb category for live weight.

    August it's going to be real tasty.

    Vegans believe in catch and release - for houseflies. That's insane.

    That may be true of tofu but tempeh can pass for chicken if done right. I know a vegetarian place that does a good job with buffalo style "tempeh" fingers.

    D'Oh? Where did you get this from, the vegan for dummies book?

    In Indiana, they bread and fry cows brains and pour gravy over them, then slip them inside two pieces of white bread. But that's a weird practice too.

    roadhouse is legit. don't mean to hop in this thread 2 yrs late. that said i am quite partial to houlihan's which i believe to be critically underrated

    in the era 2007-14 my answer would be wild wings but they stink nowadays
