wow....what a great post!.....gonna have to get back after work with a smooth drink and do some serious re reading. Might even print off a copy, this needs further study. Good stuff...thanks for reviving!
(my Mom did something similar to this for years with a brisket flat, some foil, and a pack of onion soup mix, everyone always asked her to bring it to house parties. I just can't remember what she did with the foil...???)
