home made MOT pork chop!

I have a crazy idea to make a transformer for a tesla coil useing two MOTs that are exactly the same, Then cutting them so you only have the 2 "E" core sections, Pull off the primary off one, flip the secondry so its out of phase, put the two cores together and clamp them so they cant move. put some extra shunts in to help limit current, hook up the primary to a variac and turn up the power slowly and test the arc.

How can I expand a men's pork pie hat? Answered

I just bought a men's pork pie hat that according to the website should fit my head. I ordered the XL which should be 60-61cm and should fit my head, but it didn't. Having spent $70 already on shipping, taxes and fees I would rather not spend $20 more on returning the shipping cost of returning it. The company I bought it from does not have a larger size either... What should I do to expand the size?

Does anyone have a great Pork Tamales recipe, preferably with photograph instructions?

I already know how to make tamales, but I don't care for the deep red tamales. The pork tamales I prefer usually have an orangish to brownish hue in the meat. Also, I steam my tamales, but would also like to be able to do the boiling version, but have been unsuccessful. Have any of you tried the rice steamers for steaming? Thanks!

Talking Meat Thermometer - Circuit wizard help

Hi everyone  I am doing a project in university and i wanted to make a talking thermometer which told a blind person what temperature the meat was.  At the very best i wanted it to have different functions for chicken, beef and pork. (So they can cook a medium steak and then a safe temperature for chicken, although the temp for chicken and pork is above that of a beef so maybe i can fit it into one chip. i dunno) I have to make the PCB myself so i was just looking for any help on how i may do it (maybe a mix of a home made pcb and arduino) Any any tips or advice i may need  Thanks  Michael

The voting for both is going on now, but when you click on my instructable, only the voting for the epilogue contest comes up. I'd rather have the pie contest vote linked on this page.

Bones from stores?

I bought some flavored bones for my dog at a store and found that they are pig bones.  She had blood in her stool (lots). I gave her peroxide and she threw up about 30 shards.  they were sharp enough to remove a sliver from your finger.  Never give you dog pork bones, EVER.  I don't know everywhere they are sold but I got mine at TSC  My dog is fine by the way.

Inside a Controlled Vapor Oven

I just got a used controlled vapor oven from a restaurant auction.  It works, but the evaporator heating coil turns off too early.  So, I've opened the thing up to investigate (and possibly rewire or reprogram).  Modernist Cuisine has cross-sectional views of inside a cvap (click look inside on Amazon and search for "cvap"), but if you don't have a copy, here are my pictures of inside a cvap.   Right now, I'm cooking a full bone-in pork shoulder for 24 hours that I brined in a 5% salt solution for the previous 24 hours.

how can I clean and whiten bones smply and with a minimal effort?

I have two small pork rib bones ( about four cm each max.) and, on a whim, have decided to whiten them. I don't know how to do this. The bones almost no meat on them, but I'm not sure whether or not they have marrow. I was thinking of boiling them, since I belive it is easy, are there any setbacks to this method? please help (note: I am thinking of trying scrimshaw on them, so I dont want to weaken the bone)

Something that has been annoying me about my fellow Americans

Are they stupid, lazy or both? I ask this because I've seen repeated references, both online and in traditional media, saying that Hormel is experiencing a boost in sales as "money conscious" consumers buy more Spam. Now I am a Spam aficionado, and I can tell you that I have never seen it for sale for less than $2.39 a can, that works out to $3.18 a pound, for a food that is 25% saturated fat. So what other meats can I buy for less than $3.18 a pound? I looked at the circular for Publix, not the cheapest grocer by far, and whole chickens are $.79 a Lb, Bottom Round Roast $2.19 a Lb, Pork Cutlets $2.99 a Lb. And I bought ground beef for $2.52 a Lb. So, really, what kind of moron is being "money conscious" by buying the MORE expensive food? Are we really that BAD at basic math, the mortgage crisis would suggest so. Now I fully expect some apologist to say "It's convenient, people don't have time to cook", but according to Nielsen's we have time to each watch on average 4 hours of TV a day. And really don't you still have to prepare spam, or are people just plopping it on a plate, garnishing with parsley and serving?

The World is a Complicated Place: "Eat whale and save the planet" - Norwegian lobby

This strikes me as laughable, but at least the issue is being properly framed. "Eat whale and save the planet" - Norwegian lobbyBy Alister Doyle, Environment CorrespondentOSLO (Reuters) - Eat a whale and save the planet, a Norwegian pro-whaling lobby said on Monday of a study showing that harpooning the giant mammals is less damaging to the climate than farming livestock.Environmental group Greenpeace dismissed the survey, saying almost every kind of food was more climate friendly than meat.The survey, focused on whale boats' fuel use, showed that a kilo (2.2 lbs) of whale meat represented just 1.9 kilo (4.2 lbs) of greenhouse gases against 15.8 for beef, 6.4 for pork and 4.6 for chicken."Basically it turns out that the best thing you can do for the planet is to eat whale meat compared to other types of meat," said Rune Froevik of the High North Alliance, which represents the interests of coastal communities in the Arctic."Greenhouse gas emissions caused by one meal of beef are the equivalent of eight meals of whale meat," the study said.The Norwegian-based Alliance said it was the first to measure the "carbon footprint" of whaling. Fish and seafood was comparable to whale meat with relatively low emissions.Norway and Japan, the two main whaling nations, are seeking new arguments to promote whale meat after years of condemnation from anti-whaling nations for breaking with a 1986 moratorium on all hunts meant to save many whale species from extinction.Oslo says, for instance, that the small minke whales it hunts are plentiful in the North Atlantic and that a 2008 Norwegian quota of 1,052 animals will not harm stocks. The meat is eaten mostly as steaks or in stews

Fun Facts about Pi Day

The Pi Day Pie Contest is open until March 31st. Share a pie recipe to win a stand mixer. There's even a special judge's prize for the best pi-themed decoration. This year's Pi Day is special, because it's Pi Day ALL MONTH LONG. The third month of the fourteenth year (3/14) lasts for the duration of March, and it won't happen again for another hundred years. So get baking! Some miscellaneous Pi facts: (1) Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Pie is a baked dish made of sweet or savory filling wrapped in pastry dough. They are often, but not always, circular. Expressed in terms of pie, π is the ratio of the diameter of the pan to the length of the crust. (2) Pi didn’t always have a name, much less a sweet Greek letter of its own. Contemporary use of the π symbol is thanks to mathematician William Jones, who in 1706 proposed using the letter p to indicate perimeter. Leonhard Euler, the same guy who brought you functional notation in the form of f(x), popularized π by including it in his work around 1737. Euler is responsible for many of the letters that bedevil beginning algebra students: i for the square root of -1, e for the base of the natural logarithm, and much of the notation for trigonometric functions. There is a Wikipedia page devoted to the list of things named after him, and it is enough to make an English major blanche in terror. (3) Pi Day is officially a thing, at least in the United States. In 2009, House Resolution 224 officially recognized Pi Day as a holiday on March 14th. Presumably as a kick in the pants for the education system, not as a literal example of political pork. Resolved, That the House of Representatives-- (1) supports the designation of a `Pi Day' and its celebration around the world; (2) recognizes the continuing importance of National Science Foundation's math and science education programs; and (3) encourages schools and educators to observe the day with appropriate activities that teach students about Pi and engage them about the study of mathematics. (4) Pi is vaguely described in 1 Kings 7:23-26 in the King James version of the Bible. Solomon's pool should probably have been 31.4 cubits around, but he deserves some credit for getting pretty dang close. (5) Pie Day is on January 23rd, according to the American Pie Council, but they're still cool with celebrating Pi Day with pies.
