He lambasted us for our "mistaken tales" about the origin of chili con carne. He enclosed as his evidence the first recipe ever used for chili con carne, dating from approximately 15,000 B.C.

He apologized in advance for any insult to whale lovers and wrote, "that's just the way they cook up there."

This recipe is also attributed to Big Daddy. Since yak meat is impossible to find, substitute buffalo or very lean beef.
This is an all-purpose sop that can be used with any meat or poultry. It’s purpose is to keep the meat moist during the smoking process and to give the cook something to do during the long, boring, smoking process. Use a little sop mop to coat the meat.
