Re: Cashing out home equity to invest in Mutual Funds

Usually straight tequila and a little lime. Mixing good vodka with orange juice should be a capitol offense, just like slathering sugar on a hunk of beef and burning it beyond recognition.

Re: Cashing out home equity to invest in Mutual Funds

In a good faith effort to prevent you from further embarrassing yourself, no self-respecting Texan puts sugar on beef prior to cooking it...or after. All the flavor you'll ever need comes from being properly seasoned with a rub prior to burning cooking.

And bright-eyed, in these parts a mimosa is a tree...beer is what you drink at brunch.

Re: Cashing out home equity to invest in Mutual Funds

Gosh darn it, I must be reading the wrong recipes...most of the rub recipes i've seen had brown sugar as a primary ingredient or at a minimum, as a secondary one.

I must need to move more furniture. I have way too much excess energy for idle baiting.

You aren't confusing gen-u-wine Texas BBQ seasoning with that stuff they dust on Buffalo wings are you? :P

Although I don't claim to be an expert in this area, I do know that the rub my son-in-law developed and markets has absolutely no sugar in it. And I believe it is typical of most the seasonings you will find on the beef being burned in this part of the world.

I've seen you argue with a fence post about paying off the mortgage, purchasing annuities, and other subjects of questionable importance. I cannot believe you would back away so quickly from a topic of such magnitude that it leaves those other discussions in the dust...or should that be in the smoke?

Re: Cashing out home equity to invest in Mutual Funds

nothing like taking a tax free gain on your home and translating it into a taxable investment in funds . by the time you figure interest on the heloc and taxes i doubt its worth the risk.

Re: Cashing out home equity to invest in Mutual Funds

I looked at the Kanak photo gallery. Some of them boys have had a lot of seasoning.

I've seen a lot of Texas. Where are those 19-year old topless waitresses with the free beer? Have I missed something?

Re: Cashing out home equity to invest in Mutual Funds

Now that this thread has migrated to something interesting (no, not breasts, barbecue!) I have to say that all barbecue made by a skilled cook in a traditional way is almost too good to be stood. Gotta admit my personal favorite is Texas Beef brisket, and my favorite place is a joint in Texarkana which I have unfortunately forgotten the name of. So fine!

Ha

Re: Cashing out home equity to invest in Mutual Funds

The best part of my part of the country is that we have access to some fine pork AND beef barbecue options, being about equidistant from Dallas and KC. I care a lot more about how well it was prepared than whatever critter it came from.

Dang, now I want to go grab a brisket sammich for lunch from the local BBQ hole in the wall...

No!

So maybe you're not quite as up to speed as the guy that I think is smarter than a fence post.

Re: Cashing out home equity to invest in Mutual Funds

Like I said, bunny is generally a chili item.

However, you and many others are formally invited to eat me! Might wanna put some sugar on it first.



Thanks for the easy setup. Lifes tough these days.
