    Old Drum Hatteras Style

    This recipe is posted with the warning that it is a Historical Recipe and that today it is Illegal to kill old drum. However it would make a good meal for a group cookout when the puppy drum are co-operating. Easy enough to prepare outdoors in cool weather.

    (1) 15-20lb fillet of drum diced into 2" cubes
    24-30 redskin 'taters
    (1) Quart streaked lean in 1/4" cubes
    1/2 stick real butter
    1/2 oz sea salt
    Plenty of cornbread batter

    In a large pot (preferabally with a basket) boil taters w/ salt and butter
    Fry out streaked lean in a large skillet over med heat till crispy.While it is frying you can start dicing onions. Drain and reserve the meat and grease in seperate stoneware covered bowls.
    Wipe out skillett and fill w/ cornbread batter and put in oven.
    Check taters. If done drain and replace with drum cubes. Finish onions.
    The drum usually takes about 6-8 min. (longer if windy)when it flakes drain it .
    About time for cornbread to come out now.
    On each plate mash 2-3 taters and mash 3-4 cubes of drum, sprinkle with fatback and onions and drizzle about a tbl spoon of hot grease over top and serve w/ cornbread

    I understand that sinker. I didn't truly know math until I started teaching it. It's amazing what you thought you had a really handle on that you only knew the surface. I actually liked history better but when I was in school they predicted no jobs in history when I was going to graduate in 4 years so I picked one that always has openings. Best decision of my life.

    Me too - I also use the "pinch" method - just a matter if it's a one, two or three finger pinch.

    Coach, if I had realized that I would have gotten you to do that part. I'm sure the result would have been less confusing. I loved science when I was in school but didn't like the way they taught math. Still learned enough to Ace the Physics final. Made a 99 on the mid term. I always felt like I was a week or two behind in calculus. Passed it somehow though.

    I just love seeing math advice handed out. I am a math teacher also.
