Hurricane Landfall Imminent! Take Cover (Out to Your Grill)

The hurricane’s almost here! Don’t shut down your grills on that account, though; just get a big ol’ hat and keep going. Texans don’t stop doing the Important Stuff just because some big blow’s in the area. (We’ve survived Obama pretty well so far, in fact. But I digress.) Besides, there are other uses […]

How to Grill the Ungrillable: Beef Burritos

There are many things that are naturals for the grill: Steaks, ribs, chops, hamburgers, chicken and more. You can toast your hamburger buns on the grate too. Some veggies and fruits go great when scorched too: Onions, pineapple, corn and peppers come to mind. Others may not be readily apparent, but they work: Sliced […]

Monday Blues Report: Hurricane Watching From Near the Grill

The weather reports this morning look fairly grim for the Texas-Mexico coast. Alex could be a major hurricane at landfall, which now appears most likely in northern Mexico near Brownsville sometime early Thursday. Given the area coverage of the rain from this cyclone, we should get Very Wet in the coming few days. In […]

The ever-vigilant elves here at the the Underground, with their big nose for news, sniffed this one out. In a recent Slashfood article, a new ice cream flavor was presented. We know you’ll hold us in high odor, ever after, for bringing this article to your attention! Not that you’re likely to taste, or […]

Fish 4 Friday: Skate Grilled in Banana Leaves

I spent plenty of time in Singapore over the years, and I always enjoyed touring the food hawkers’ areas. My favorites were Tiong Bahru Market, Bukit Timah, Chomp Chomp Food Centre, People’s Park, and Lau Pa Sat. I never made it to Glutton’s Square, although the place is still legendary on the island and with […]

Chile Underground Goes Mobile; World Leaders are Awed

Well, folks, it’s finally happened. The Web will never be the same, either. To top it all off, we’ve even beaten that “other” Underground, the one that talks about fish and other weird stuff, to the punch! Yes, folks, after this technical coup the Chile Underground has assumed the leader’s position amongst Underground websites […]
