Agree with #5...EXCEPT when I am fixing my mothers receipe of boiled ribs, potatoes, and saurkrut..all end up in a covered dish and placed into oven for a blending of the flavors. A old polish receipe. Yum.

1. Thou Shalt not Double Dip.
2. Thou Shalt not put Ketchup on a Hot Dog.
3. Thou Shalt not put Sugar in Coffee.
4. Thou Shalt not cook a Steak greater than Medium.
5. Thou Shallt not Boil Ribs.
6. Thou Shalt not Boil Bratwurst or Hot Dogs. But some of us LOVE our "dirty water dogs"!
7. Thou Shalt not use a Microwave for anything other than Popcorn. It's a very handy tool when used correctly - like a knife, blowtorch, split atom.
8. Thou Shalt not put Eggs in Tuna or Potato Salad. To some of us, potato salad is just not potato salad unless it contains eggs. (unless it's that French potato salad that is just potatoes, herbs and vinaigrette).
9. Thou Shalt not put the Peanut Butter knife in the Jelly Jar.
10. Thou Shalt not put Fingers in the Pickle Jar.
11. Thou Shalt never use Miracle Whip on or in anything. But I LOVE that tangy zip of Miracle Whip!

Porkbeaks gives the link. I included it, because there was a recent thread on this site about this new product, started by the inventor of the Trong. It was quite an amusing little thread. So, I thought I'd try to be topical. If you missed the thread, then ignore the Trong part and be sure to stock up on Napkins. Oh yeah, and wet wipes are ok too, for those who were wondering. Lemon scented if you must


PB - thanks for adding the link.
And, Special compensation to use Ranch dressing instead of the sacred bleu cheese requirement, may be granted to those of whom are proned to upchucking or other allergic reactions to blue cheese, or, if one is pregnant and cannot eat bleu cheese dressing if said bleu cheese in the dressing is not pasturized. Of course, it is preferred that you simply abstain from the bleu cheese dressing rather than substitute it with Ranch. The best bet, is to reflect on what the pure Buffalo wing eater would do in this situation, and act accordingly....so if you've ever eaten wings with a Buffalonian, you'd know that you could probably get away with eating Ranch dressing, but you'd definately be suspected of being from Miami.

Sizz, I have a quibble with this one. Even though our interstate highway system is rife with proliferation of all things chains, there is still some wonderful food to be found right off those exit ramps. For instance, my last Roadfood experience, at Bobcat Bite in Santa Fe, is a heavy stone's throw from I-25. That and many other establishments probably listed on this website would be immediately disqualified.

I think he's talking about big city places.
if you get much more than 1/2 mile off I-5 where I live,
You could quickly be talking to Mr. Bear and Mrs. Cougar.


And he obviously forgot about the In-N-Outs. I do not think any exist that aren't within a 1/2 mile of a freeway.

4- Do not miss 25-cent wing night. It's usually the same night as Monday Night Football.
5- Honor Both the wing and the drum. Do not simply eat one or the other, especially when sharing with others.
6- Do not over cook/fry the wing. A dry wing, is a dead wing. Don't kill the wing.
7- When you fail to order Buffalo wings, don't pine over your buddy's wings. Order your own!
8- Do not sneak a wing from your buddy when he hits the head. That's just wrong!
9- Do not lie to your buddy when he returns from the head and notices a wing is missing. Fess up and at the least, buy him a beer in return.
10-Stock up on napkins. Don't use your buddy's napkins or his wife's blouse. Don't use Trongs either, especially in Buffalo, unless you're looking to get your a$$ kicked. An easier and just as stupid way to get beat up in Buffalo, is to wear a Miami Dolphins jersey.




SR,

I love #5, I have a few buddies that need to take that one to heart!...ILMAO!!

Oh and for the person who asked what double dipping is.....and I quote from Seinfeld "It's when you dip a chip, take a bite, and then you dip againnnnnnnnnnnnn!"

Amen ......to that brother, don't you just hate it when a roadfooder uses the word "BEST" as in "the best pizza in the world is............"

I agree,
I've said a thousand times taste is in the taste-buds of the taster! We all have our bests. "Best" should be taken with a grain of salt for comparison sake...but I've learned a lot from so many other's BESTS on this web site. Let's all have our opi nions...but not shut others down. Crazy to say, but "Best" is relative...but I enjoy hearing other's "best's".

Don't agree with any of them except for the double dip and the finger in the pickle jar. My single suggestion (not a commandment!)is "thou shall be openminded."

I agree except where noted:

1. Thou Shalt not Double Dip. Fair enough, but put a big spoon of dip on your plate and dip 'til you drop!
2. Thou Shalt not put Ketchup on a Hot Dog.
3. Thou Shalt not put Sugar in Coffee.
4. Thou Shalt not cook a Steak greater than Medium.
5. Thou Shallt not Boil Ribs.
6. Thou Shalt not Boil Bratwurst or Hot Dogs.
7. Thou Shalt not use a Microwave for anything other than Popcorn. Or defrosting.
8. Thou Shalt not put Eggs in Tuna or Potato Salad. I hate tuna, but my mother's potato salad calls for eggs and Miracle Whip. Don't mess with perfection!
9. Thou Shalt not put the Peanut Butter knife in the Jelly Jar.
10. Thou Shalt not put Fingers in the Pickle Jar.
11. Thou Shalt never use Miracle Whip on or in anything. See above re: potato salad. Miracle Whip is in fact labelled "salad dressing".
12. Thou Shalt not put Beans in Chili. Pull my finger!
13. Thou Shalt not put Steak Sauce on Prime Cut of Steak. To me, steak isn't steak - even at Peter Luger's - without a ramekin full of Lea & Perrins Worchestershire Sauce on the side.

1) Thou shalt always be thankful for food served graciously, regardless of how it tastes.
2) Thou shalt make sure others are served enough before taking seconds. Thou shalt mentally calculate thy share when serving thyself communally, and take a little less.
3) Thou shalt not be a food snob. Which is not the same as thou being choosy; the difference is thy attitude. It is good for thou to be choosy, it is bad for thou to have an attitude about it.
4) Thou shalt take pleasure in friends and family gathering about food. This pleasure is primal and universal.
5) Thou shalt learn to cook well. Understanding is a virtue, and knowledge is power. Thou shalt use thy new found power wisely and genially for others.
6) Thou shalt understand that baking is part science and part witchcraft. Those who have mastered this art are to be revered, and their products are to be eaten.
7) Thou shalt try to seduce and marry one of the bakery witches. Failing that, thou shalt try to seduce and marry one of their brothers or sisters.
8) Thou shalt keep one's kitchen clean.
9) Thou shalt try new things; a nibble, anyhow. Again, thou shalt use thy head; thou need not try to out-Bourdain Bourdain. But it is OK to try just a nibble of that fish stew. Thou might enjoy it. Or not, but now thou knowest.
10) Thou shalt be allowed to break these commandments within reason, when breaking them does not injure thy friends either physically or emotionally. It is OK for thou to break them in private, as thou sees fit. For example, thou may accept thy neighbor's gift of jellied English eels graciously, and then in private refuse to nibble and also scoff at thy neighbor for eating such a thing... but graciously, thankful for the gift, and in private. As a corollary, thou art allow to lie about how good it was.

So well said, A lesson for all.

I never thought about that, but I think you're right except for the one next door to Hooter's at Fisherman's Wharf San Francisco.

It's also only one of two without a drive thru. The other one has one but has never been used because the neighbors on the opposite side from the freeway successfully blocked it.

I wonder if there is another one not visible from the freeway.

Does anyone know ?

Russ Jackson 11. Thou Shalt never use Miracle Whip on or in anything.

Miracle Whip destroys any brand of mayonnaise in a blind taste test and is therefore an excellent replacement for mayonnaise anywhere. And BLTs absolutely, positively require Miracle Whip! 
 
In general though, leave the Ten Commandments to those anointed for the job. Stick to your day job of delivering the ball to open receivers.

1. Thou Shalt not Double Dip.
Agree.  Unless I'm eating by myself or just with Janet. 
 
2. Thou Shalt not put Ketchup on a Hot Dog.
Agree, but Janet does this. 
 
3. Thou Shalt not put Sugar in Coffee.
We don't drink coffee, but if we did, it would need a lot of sugar. .... Like a Cuban cortadito or Cafecito.   
 
4. Thou Shalt not cook a Steak greater than Medium.
Disagree.  We realize we're in the minority here, but we like our meat cooked all the way through, rather than only half-way done. Red juices are blood.  We're not into eating raw blood.   :)
 
5. Thou Shallt not Boil Ribs.
Agree.
 
6. Thou Shalt not Boil Bratwurst or Hot Dogs.
Agree, but steamed and then finished on the grill is okay. 
 
7. Thou Shalt not use a Microwave for anything other than Popcorn.
Strongly Disagree.   Microwave popcorn is pretty nasty!  We only make "real" popcorn in a pot on the stovetop.  However, using the microwave to melt some butter to pour on the popcorn is okay.
 
8. Thou Shalt not put Eggs in Tuna or Potato Salad.
Agree.  Also should not ruin tuna or potatoes with mayo as many do.  Tuna shoud be done as steaks on a grill, and potatoes can be mashed, boiled, baked, etc..... but never ruined with nasty mayo, as is done in most potato salads. 
 
 9. Thou Shalt not put the Peanut Butter knife in the Jelly Jar.
Agree.
 
 
10. Thou Shalt not put Fingers in the Pickle Jar.
Disagree.  It's my personal pickle jar that only I use.  :) 
 
11. Thou Shalt never use Miracle Whip on or in anything.
Agree.  No mayo, either :)
 
12. Thou Shalt not put Beans in Chili
Agree!
 
13. Thou Shalt not put Steak Sauce on Prime Cut of Steak.
Agree!

if you get much more than 1/2 mile off I-5 where I live,
You could quickly be talking to Mr. Bear and Mrs. Cougar.


And he obviously forgot about the In-N-Outs. I do not think any exist that aren't within a 1/2 mile of a freeway.





I never thought about that, but I think you're right except for the one next door to Hooter's at Fisherman's Wharf San Francisco.

It's also only one of two without a drive thru. The other one has one but has never been used because the neighbors on the opposite side from the freeway successfully blocked it.

I wonder if there is another one not visible from the freeway.

Does anyone know ?
Ine In N Out in Alhambra, California is not visible from the freeway. Neither is the one in Rosemead.

my comment was for Michael Hoffman from his post on the first page of this thread.

Here are some different ones...

1) Thou shalt always be thankful for food served graciously, regardless of how it tastes.
2) Thou shalt make sure others are served enough before taking seconds. Thou shalt mentally calculate thy share when serving thyself communally, and take a little less.
3) Thou shalt not be a food snob. Which is not the same as thou being choosy; the difference is thy attitude. It is good for thou to be choosy, it is bad for thou to have an attitude about it.
4) Thou shalt take pleasure in friends and family gathering about food. This pleasure is primal and universal.
5) Thou shalt learn to cook well. Understanding is a virtue, and knowledge is power. Thou shalt use thy new found power wisely and genially for others.
6) Thou shalt understand that baking is part science and part witchcraft. Those who have mastered this art are to be revered, and their products are to be eaten.
7) Thou shalt try to seduce and marry one of the bakery witches. Failing that, thou shalt try to seduce and marry one of their brothers or sisters.
8) Thou shalt keep one's kitchen clean.
9) Thou shalt try new things; a nibble, anyhow. Again, thou shalt use thy head; thou need not try to out-Bourdain Bourdain. But it is OK to try just a nibble of that fish stew. Thou might enjoy it. Or not, but now thou knowest.
10) Thou shalt be allowed to break these commandments within reason, when breaking them does not injure thy friends either physically or emotionally. It is OK for thou to break them in private, as thou sees fit. For example, thou may accept thy neighbor's gift of jellied English eels graciously, and then in private refuse to nibble and also scoff at thy neighbor for eating such a thing... but graciously, thankful for the gift, and in private. As a corollary, thou art allow to lie about how good it was.

 
this is by the far the most gracious of the list of commandments. I posting this on my FB

agree with all except number 8.  Potato salad is great with eggs, as is tuna salad.  Niether are mandatory, but it does improve it.

1. Thou Shalt not Double Dip.   I agree with Ann.
2. Thou Shalt not put Ketchup on a Hot Dog.  Sometimes I do, out of habit, but it really adds nothing.
3. Thou Shalt not put Sugar in Coffee.  A little and love Hazelnut creamer.
4. Thou Shalt not cook a Steak greater than Medium.  I think Medium is just right.  Don't like blood and raw much, but with steak, I'll deal with a little pink.
5. Thou Shallt not Boil Ribs.  Agreed!
6. Thou Shalt not Boil Bratwurst or Hot Dogs.  Grilled is best, IMO.
7. Thou Shalt not use a Microwave for anything other than Popcorn.  Disagree. 
8. Thou Shalt not put Eggs in Tuna or Potato Salad.  I like eggs in my salads.
9. Thou Shalt not put the Peanut Butter knife in the Jelly Jar.  Agreed and extremely anal about this one.  I don't want jelly in my peanut butter or vice verse.
10. Thou Shalt not put Fingers in the Pickle Jar.  Agreed, but nobody follows this rule, so I don't eat pickles out of the jar, unless I just opened it.
11. Thou Shalt never use Miracle Whip on or in anything.  Really don't care.
12. Thou Shalt not put Beans in Chili.  Disagreed, although, being a meat eater, I prefer all meat chili.
13. Thou Shalt not put Steak Sauce on Prime Cut of Steak.   Ehhhh.... I am not a fan of steak sauce, but sometimes I enjoy it.
  And my #1`food commandmant?
     Put love into into the cooking and care for the food as stated!  I can't stand people leaving dairy based products out.  If it says "refrigerate after opening,"  refrigerate after opening!  The manufacturers should know! 
     And anytime something is cooked with love, the feeling created throughout is love and even burnt food cooked with love tastes better than the best fried chicken or steak that has no soul.

I make a buttered herb sauce for my steak with a touch of Dijon and garlic. No to most of the others.
