If I am ever able to grill burgers, etc. for food day, I will make sure she gets a crunchy one.
It would hurt me to cook a burger beyond medium rare, but yep I'd make the dern thing a hockey puck out of spite! Have you ever though about bringing a meat temperature graph and taking an internal temperature of the meat coming off the the smoker? Some people you really gotta show them, but still sometimes that don't do. Sad stuff.

I love steak tartare though, so I guess I'm an outlier when it comes to raw meats. LOL.

My evil MIL thought the beautiful smoked turkey that I made at Thanksgiving was always raw because it was pink and juicy. She never ate much of it which just meant more for the rest of us. Can't fix stupid!

Note to self: Muricans don't know red meat starts out red, and is delicious pink.
Huh.

Australia is NOT renowned for customer service, and the US is.
That being said, I know plenty of restaurants that train wait staff so, for example, if you order and omelette and complain that the middle is barely set and you want another because you don't eat uncooked egg then the staff will explain to your ignorant butt that a perfectly cooked omelette IS barely set in the centre, and you have a chice to order it another way but you will be charged for both.
I think that is fair.

Speaking of how I must do steaks and burgers for my wife and step daughter. Totally done. To me they are dried out and nasty.
Steaks the same way. Something about women's beef needs to be totally done to help prevent cancer. I just do what they ask.
Restraunts.....hardly ever go to them. Wife and family says my food always taste better....me....not so shure.

Can you still burn wood legally in California? Figured they would have shut that down by now.

According to the local air quality management district. (Whatever that is) Cooking devices are exempt.

Good question though.

For now......
Won't be much longer, and you guys will have figured out how to put a catalytic conveter on your smokers.

I thought that most people thought charring meat to a pulp was a carcinogen itself? Looks like a lose/lose if you think undercooked meat causes cancer!

There has been ongoing studies about the whole wood thing, if you guys would just keep your mouths shut, then the CA lawmakers will just assume we all use gas and we will be fine. Gas and charcoal are seen as clean burning fuels, so just be quiet and there will be no issues. For the record, we have great air here.

As for the omelet comment, I used to go to a breakfast place that had a large red letter disclaimer that they cook all of their eggs to a soft texture, and that this is normal, that an omelet will have a soft almost runny texture, and that the scrambled eggs will be custardy. And that it will not be possible to burn the eggs. I stopped going there, because the line got to be around 2 hours, and I refuse to wait for two hours for breakfast.

Now you have me curious...what's it like to live in a state where you're afraid of your government? To the point where you need to keep discussion about burning wood quiet?

I was kidding about that. I actually live with very little fear of anything. I am greatly frustrated by my local and state government at times, and I find the politicians maddening at times. Largely, I love living here and think most of the country really does not understand this state very well.

We have never gotten close to a ban on burning wood for cooking, indoors or outdoors. And I think it would surprise most of you to find that our state has had as many Republican leaders and Democratic leaders during my lifetime. MY biggest issue is that due to it's size, the cost of elections and campaigns being what they are, big business has far too much influence on the state and the manner in which much of how the state is run ends up being to their advantage.
