Thank You Sir !!!
Tell me you will drink a cup and then maybe i will belive it's safe.I have got oil on my skin many times but i sure won't put it in my belly.
Great looking prime rib. Our local Kroger put whole ribeyes on sale for $4.97/# so I've got a 14 pounder set to go on my woodburner tomorrow. Gonna use almost all cherry wood with just a hint of hickory thrown in to get it to about 135.
Michael I'm also from Ark. (Brinkley) and am glad to see a fellow Arkie here but you've got to learn a little more about farming. I'm raising my 19th crop now and we're not spraying anything nearly as toxic as you make it out to be. Very rarely do we spray anything that I'd be afraid to get directly on my skin. BTW my sprayer has a 100' boom *grin*.
There are many things in the world that would do you harm if you "drank a cup" but small external exposure is virtually harmless. I'll put just as much on me as the rabbits, squirrels etc. that you claim we're killing daily and won't think twice about it. Check the LD50's on most ag chemicals......its lower than asprin. I'm sure you've taken asprin before so go ahead and take a cup full and see how that works out for you. It makes about as much sense as drinking a cup of herbicide or insecticide.
There is a reason eastern Arkansas is known for having abundant wildlife and its dang sure not because the farmers are spraying nonselective poisons the way you describe. A little education on the subject will go a long way for you. Fear mongering and wild speculation will not.
Bearcarver sorry to hijack your post like this but misinformation about my way of life is a pet peeve of mine.
ps.......5.5 hours in the smoke and my big prime rib came out perfect last night. Sadly no Q-view as we were in too big a hurry to get started eating. HA
Thanks Moikel !!!
I'll keep trying---It's so much fun sampling!
Thank You Elly!!
