Oh wait... I work today at Subway and I get free subs there... phew I'm saved... somewhat.

Subway doesn't taste as good as the pictures look here.

Can't wait to see your pictures :P

Smokers are AMAZING. We have one that doubles over as a grill, so we use it for charcoal grilling all the time.

Last year a bunch of all got together and got two smokers going... started at 7am with 4 racks of ribs in one and two pork butts in the other. Ribs, pulled pork, and beer... all afternoon.

Possibly one of the greatest days ever. :D

not so certain about that spork. Watch this video of my best bud's bacon wrapped pork loin and let me know if you still feel the same (for the record he also smokes the best pulled pork I've ever had in my life)

I'm kinda jealous as i absolutely love Subway! Give me a Italian BMT anyday! :D

They are actually opening one up not far from where i live. Like 10 miles away, so i'm tempted to go in there when it opens in October, that's if i've not moved by then.

lol, subway doesn't excite me anymore... ate too many subs there as I work but I still eat as I'm still hungry :P

I like Melts, SMoked Briskets and the Subway Club. Yum...

Hope you enjoy them :)

That was pretty impressive, although I'm going to call him out about that rum -- I've definitely seen it at our local liquor store :?

And Subway... ugh, I can't stand the place. Maybe it's different where you guys live but around here Subway subs are pathetic. They stuff them with lettuce and if you're lucky, you get some meat. Maybe. Also, I have three different friends who have gotten pretty damn bad food poisoning from Subway, all on separate occasions.

We have Quiznos (overpriced) and DiBella's (fantastic), both of which are far better :)

The Subway here is awesome - actually, every Subway I've ever been to has been good. Maybe it's the whole Canadian thing :P

I don't know what kind of SUbways you have at New York Spork, but here Subway is great. There was one subway here where I ordered a BLT (8 bacons :P ) and it tasted like poop, but other than that, I eat foot long subs everyday.

Spork, you make it sound like the Subway is choosing what kind of food you get... don't you choose? Like BLT... Spicy Italian or whatever?

I feel kinda hypocritical here being that i directed this conversation in this way, but if you wish to talk about Subway then maybe start a new topic in GD or something. It seems unfair that the sole purpose of this topic has lost any importance.

Well, I seriously took the weekend off from everything and went out to the lake (I turned my phone off and left my laptop at home *lol). Haven't even cured the smoker yet.

That looks great! My best bud does those a lot. I have yet to try it, but something I'm going to do very soon. Every picture I've ever seen makes my mouth water.

It's a "can't go wrong" way to cook a chicken...and yummy too. :thumbsup:

If anyone is interested, I used a can of Yuengling with some rosemary added. I've got a special little rack that holds the can and the chicken, just to make sure it doesn't fall over.

//Even looking at my own pic, I want to reach out a grab that wing off of there. :twisted:

I've got one of those racks :)
It's such an easy way to make deliciously tender chicken.

Question to some of you gurus: These are some really nice photos. I just picked up a Sony Aplha 350. 14.2 Megapixels. How do I get photos like these! :) I know I have the resolution, but I'm wondering if there is something that is done in post-production to make them really pop. Not to be too critical, but some of the photos before these are nice, but they don't have that "professional" look and feel. What's the secret? Better lighting? Better lens? Photoshop?

It's all about vivid colours (usually painted on) and very controlled depth of focus. Your resolution is meaningless unless you're posting these on a billboard ;)

So post production for the vivid colors? and depth of focus on camera?

Thanks for the compliments on my photos - I do love some of the other images in the thread too though. :) I appreciate the words though.

Actually I didn't boost saturation much. I shoot neutral in camera and then just light it with off camera flash. The chocolate cheesecake (last image) is just an on-camera flash bounced off the ceiling with levels brought up and a bit of a contrast boost. No saturation in that one. The first was shot outdoors under a white tent - pretty easy to light that! :)

I shoot with a Canon 1D Mark 2 so my resolution, sensor and everything are top-level. I shot these all with a Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 lens that I ADORE. And I'm good in Photoshop. So I'd say "all of the above" to what makes a photo come together now for me. Start with lighting though - I could do *all* of this in camera with 5 more minutes per image.

Here's what you're aiming for.
Copyright 2008 ATNO Productions



Here's how you make it and what you need.
For the tuna salad:
Two large cans of tuna of your choice
1 large stalk minced celery
1/2 medium onion minced
2 heaping tablespoons pickle relish
3 heaping table spoons real mayonnaise (to me if it isn't Hellman's it isn't real mayonnaise)
