I picked these up this morning:

Then I put them on the grill:


A short while later, I had dinner!




The menu consisted of two ribeye steaks, a baked potato and green beans. Pepsi was the chosen beverage, as I do not partake of alcohol. Notice the glass, with ice and back up 2 liter bottle.
Napkin is present, under silverware, next to M7 bayonet in scabbard. Music provided by 10 years, killing all that holds you. DVD entertainment provided by Heat, Hamburger Hill, and Jarhead. They are next to the remote. Security was provided by the Bushmaster patrolman's carbine, backed up with my self-built A2, each with a loaded mag along with 3 extra mags and 3 stripper clips and charging spoon. They are in turn backed up by the Glock 21, and Glock 36, both provided with extra magazines. Reading material furnished by SWAT magazine.
Stapler and measuring device off to the right side. Extra napkins, salt and pepper in center of table. I think I covered everything....
Time to eat!

Mother Of Pearl!! That is a great pic, you even picked the right drink!

Good job.

The target placemat was a nice touch.

8.3875 out 10.

Sounds like like you have everything... that means a 10!

Great looking dinner pic !

I gotta roll with a 9.99 on this one.

That sparkling brand new grill out on your deck cost you the .01 deduction.

A well seasoned grill is the only way to BBQ up the 'perfect' steak.

Nice try

+10 for the AR's

-1 for Jarhead, simply not even action in that movie. plenty of M16s though

8.0(-2 for the gas)

I grilled Black Angus New York Strips over Mesquite last night.

Its a year old, sits outside under a cover. Not sparkling new, just a representation of weber quality and my stainless steel fetish.
You could verify that by researching, that model is 2 years old, I bought it last year as the previous year's closeout leftover. The current model, introduced last year has a center, permanently mounted thermometer, and full stainless doors on the front. (my dad liked mine so much he bought one)

<­BR>

shameless attempt to gain .01 point
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:14:33 PM EDT
I give it a 9.9. would have been 10 if you had swapped out "Dawn of the Dead" and "Red Dawn" for "Jarhead" and "Hamburger Hill". Not criticising your choices, they're just not official ARFcom flicks...
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:15:48 PM EDT
I love dead cow flesh.

A 10.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:17:25 PM EDT
I give it the highest ARFCOM mark , 87
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:17:45 PM EDT
looks good but...TV clicker...and no tv....come on....also, tell me you ate both steaks....I only see one on your plate...I give you a ten, pending you ate both steaks!

10 (pending)
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:22:32 PM EDT
I'll reserve judgement until I see how over or under cooked it is inside.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:25:49 PM EDT
The steaks are stacked on each other, yes I ate all of it. You cannot see from the photos, but directly to my right is my living room. There is no wall separating the two, so you can watch tv no problem. Connected to that tv is about 1,000 watts of audio bliss. Complete 6.1 surround sound, with a 200 watt per channel Rotel amp pushing the mains, which are B&W 604s3. Want me to get a pic? The system sucks enough current that when I switch it on, the lights in the room flicker. Its not the baddest in the world, but its the baddest on the whole damn block.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:29:09 PM EDT
That is one HUGE target.

Looks like good eats too. Wish that's what I was having for dinner.

Perfect.

BTW: First 10 I've ever handed out to a dinner pic. I would have given you an 11 but your lacking in the BOTD department.

-1 for the Grock, otherwise looks pretty delicious

Almost perfect. Would be perfect if you had used charcoal.

9.0
-.5 for gas
-.5 for green beans from a can

Woould have been a +9 if not for the Glocks
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:46:13 PM EDT
Nice layout what did you season the steaks with ?
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:46:53 PM EDT
Ok well you have caught my attention. A target as a place mat? What were you thinking? Cause it got you an extra point from me! Two AR's? Man you were thinking, two more points! Two hand guns equals 1 point extra! Meat and potatoes equals awesome!

Ok now lets get down to the nitty gritty! Pepsi? WTF were you thinking? An alcoholic beverage of ANY kind would have set this one into orbit! A remote control with no TV in the pic makes me wonder? Now due to the fact that you came well equiped, where the fuck is the salt? I won't count that one though. SO now I have to add one point for HEAT and another for good grill marks. Where does that lead us......oh wait why the fuck do you have a spoon? I don't see any pudding? -1 well this is getting good. Extra butter on the green beans???? +1 Not making this easy huh? Butter knife and a steak knife? Too many? I will let that slide, but to have HEAT, HAMBURGER HILL< but NO FULL METAL JACKET is a BIG NO NO -2. Wow you are working me on this one.


DAMN you scored a 12 and I think a SOLID 12 at that! Can I come by for dinner??

table looks cluttered, but the meal looks delicious.

Garlic, spices and herb (including black pepper), salt, brown sugar, onion, paprika, silicon dioxide (added to make free flowing), partially hydrogenated soybean oil, and spice extractives.


As taken from the label of the McCormick Grill Mates steak rub can.

Its just becoming grilling weather round here, so I have yet to restock my usual stuff and didn't realize that this was all I had left.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:51:27 PM EDT
I will give it a 9.5, for not using Charcoal.

Other then that, can I come over for the other one.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:53:39 PM EDT
10!!!
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:53:54 PM EDT
maybe i'm blind, but i see jarhead and HEAT in the pic, not jarhead and hamburger hill...
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 2:58:25 PM EDT
I'll give a 7. Food is a 10 but you get minus points as follows:

-1 no napkin
-1 silverware placement is incorrect
-1 gun placement is awkward. This is a common error in my book. If you flip your hanguns over, you can grab them and be ready to pop the gangbangers who just busted in. The way you have them, you cannot. Ditto for the rifles.

Television is in full view of dining area:


Salt shaker was present during the event, on other side of napkin holder:

Gun placement could be argued, I have doors on either side to defend.
Napkin was present under silverware, also additional napkins were present in napkin holder.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 3:15:53 PM EDT
How about a few more green beans to go with that side o' butter you got there

You should see my toolbox at work. People give me stuff all the time. I have a calendar, a pinata, a giant poster, an inflatable one, several small ones, stickers, a talking spongebob, it goes on and on. I like making people wonder...... The boss doesn't mind, whatever keeps me happy!

I don't really have an informed opinion. I bought a couple of gun mags when I went out of town for training, and thought it would look good in the picture. I don't subscribe to anything but car mags. I can get my fix for knowledge and gun porn online, and for that one week I needed something to hold me over. It was better than the other two I bought, but I spent over $20 on three magazines

A steak can be done in a skillet to rival nearly any steak done on a grill if you know what you are doing...

The key is high heat and proper seasoning. You need to sear it brown immediately so the juices don't all bubble out and end up boiling the steak....

The worst steaks I've ever had were unquestionably steaks that were grilled by incompetents...
