CALLING ALL CHAGAN"S!!

Perhaps our friend can help shed some light on this.

In my area Martin's is a major brand.

www.mfps.com/

www.bestharvest.com/ is in Memphis.

I can't believe you are unable to find this in the heart of the BBQ belt.

Call local restaurants and caterers. Find out if they have any sources.

Contact commercial bakeries. Many have thrift store and you can get 'em cheap.

If potato rolls can't be located, Chagan may never be able to visit Memphis!

P.S.

A google search revealed several sources along with a slew of recipies. Baking your own white bread ain't that hard.

If all else fails MOVE. (Oh, yeah. Fill up every thing you own with Memphis ribs. You know... just enough for the trip.)

Well hodag, this is where they seperate the grillers from the guys that just want to be cool. I'll tell you what you have to do my friend. You gotta stop thinking "Where can I buy something" and start thinking "How can I make something."

I predict the quest for the perfect bun could be a lifelong journey. Do you just want to buy it and get it over with? Or do you want to make it your friend and companion?

What's more fun? Driving from store to store looking for that particular brand of bun, or piddling around in your kitchen with flour and water and smelly starters which are fermenting and stinking up the joint?

When somebody says, "These buns are great! Where did you buy them?" Do you want to give them the name of some corporate enviromentally raping beuracratic tight butted 9 to five suit wearing yes men franchise.? Or do you want to be able to say, "I made them myself."?

Anyway, to make some good buns, start with some flour and water and let it sit in a warm place until it starts bubbling and fermenting and making the whole kitchen smell kind of sour.

There is a recipe for potato rolls around here somewhere. Try a search and you'll find it.

I can't believe Chagan hasn't showed up here yet. You even mention potato rolls and usually comes running!

Maybe he went out for beer. All those potato rolls go down kinda dry.

Oh my hodag-THAT is TERRIBLE!!! I can feel your pain. Did you check with your realtor before moving? That would have been on my list of things to ask. Perhaps you can site breach of contract and get your money back. Seriously though, now you know how to do it yourself, I'm sure that they will come out even better than store bought if one can trust GS's recipies, and I do.

In other news, there is a new future member of the board in town. His name is Mark Vincent and he was 7lbs 4oz (nice size of a roast) :P

Thats a good reason for not being around lately.

So have you figured out how to fit brisket and ribs in a babys bottle yet?

Thats great, Congrats again!!

Hey, did we know we had a little (potato) bun in the oven!

As far as being the size of a nice roast , I'm beginning to wonder about you and Grand Scales reference to loving dogs and grilling in the same sentence. Anything we should know!?

Congrats. Is this your first?

Thanks guys, I really appreciate it- the family is doing great and, no, this is my second. I have a 3 year old daughter and this new boy. I think I'm done :) Now back to the Q......
