Exploding Pork
« on: December 27, 2003, 04:35:32 PM »
I swear this is true.

The bourbon and wine glaze on our Christmas ham ignited in the oven, blew the door open with a "whoompf", and scared the dingleberries out of everyone.  I'm thinking lawsuit. :D :D :-/

I was thinking to sue the recipe writer, actually.   ;)  They said nothing at all about possible porcine projectiles.  It isn't surprising at all, but my wife isn't exactly a chemist and she just followed the instructions.  The ham was delicious -- one of the best glazes I've ever tasted.  But apparently highly flammable at 350!

Thanks for your support, Deadheader.

Sasquatchman,

Went to bed and realised that my response was probably taken the wrong way. If it was, I apologize. I was reacting to the term "suing".

Oi Deadheader, it takes a wee bit more than that to offend me.  In fact, having read the recipe, I sort of told my wife the same thing "What the hell d'ya expect?"

I just thought lawsuits were part of the American way - I'm trying to fit in! ;D

I hadn't seen the Biblical implications until just now... next year I'll bourbon glaze the turkey and leave the ham with mustard and honey - see what old G thinks of that. ;)

   I've been doing 'marsala' recipes, and have learned to be sure the cupboard doors above the stove are closed prior to ignition. At the greatest extent I have had flames greater than 1' high. Sure is fun at my place- tastes good too.

  As far as the orig recipe you were talking about- plenty of those glazes just have a 'taste' of bourbon or wine, so I'd say the recipe itself was the problem.   lw

It's a good thing your wife wasn't cooking baked beans with that glaze. We would have been reading about a big mushroom cloud over Alberta! :o

Couse that might be better than those small mushroom clouds that appear several hours after ya eat them beans. ;)

I had a pet pig named Gertrude.   :D :D Found her orphaned at the back of our hog lot with eresephalis (SP) in her back legs.  I was living in an apartment in st louis at the time.  Had her trained to a litter box, at night she would sleep with me (i was single back then) straddling my neck.  As she got older and stronger she got louder.  Nieghbors complained and I returned her to the farm.  When she was big enough, I butchered her.  Sounds a little heartless but I figured that is what a hog aspires to - to be on thier masters dinner table. ;) ;)

Dan,
My uncle had a hankering for mutton. He always had a bum lamb around that he would invariably name "Lamb Chops". It always came up missing in the fall. When his kids were little they could never figure out where Lamb Chops went to. ;)
