Meet the crew, Misc. Drinking Thoughts & Recipes
 
Our Founding Fore Fathers & Crew

Jack Pleimann & Mick Finn began this all on Oct. 2nd 1960 @ the Old Sportsman Park with the Big Red losing  35 - 14 to the NY Giants, 51 years later they are still going strong!
 
Mick & Jack are unique in their own special ways:
 
Mick is the self proclaimed "Toughest Son of A Bitch on Earth" Who has been known to prove it by smearing his face in the gravel just in case no one believed him. Mick is our official Hot Dog cooker who takes special pride in his special tecnique of "Slow Cooking" the dogs to keep them tender.
 
Jack is basically worn out from his years & years of getting Mick out of trouble??? Jack is the prankster of the group, but somehow most of his pranks have been on Mick? Somehow I don't feel sorry for either of them!
 
Ann Finn- With out Ann we all would be so lost, she's our Mother when we need one, She's our friend and for some reason she keeps coming back from all the abuse that Jack has sent her way over the years, Ann we love you and look so forward to seeing you & Mick on Football Sundays.
 
Over the years Jack & Mick have slowly handed things off to the next generation:

Here they are in no special order-
 
Jeff Pleimann, (Jacks Oldest son) aka-"Pushkins, Snoogylumps, Cow or Ass ****"(by his brothers), Jeff is just another grunt man along with Ron & Chris. Jeff has recently been lobbying the NFL to push all game times back to 5:00 PM (He works hard and needs his sleep).
 
Ron Pleimann, Better known as the straight man in his and Chris's Comedy Duo. Ron is at the heart of every Tailgate Party, Making sure every beer is cold, Tents are up, the fire is made, heaters are gassed up, Etc.  All the while giving full credit to Mick and Jack for allowing him to do so... Ron has the rare disticion of always being the first to arrive and the last to leave. He also is unique in the fact that
he has never missed a Rams home game (although he has missed many of his Childrens births, birthdays ,He may have even missed the conception? Weddings, etc.)
 
Chris "Frank" Pleimann, Chris has basically held every position on the Entertainment Committee, Some might say he is the entertainment. Chris is professionally trained by the famous "Hans Leebowitz"
at the world famous Leebowitz Acadamy of Dance in Europe. Chris is best known for inventing the "Step Touch". Chris enjoys his time working with many charities... The homeless, (Dancing with the homeless) & his work with the Unwed Mothers of the area.
 
Mark Perry, There is really not much to say about Mark, but we do like to remind him of the Famous Ass Kicking That He Took back in 1980 while Ron was checking the air in the tires after the Big Red game that day, Man you should have seen his face beat the crap out of their fist.
 
There are so many more, so as the year goes on we will add to the list.
 
This is one of our co-founders Mick Finn, Without him
none of this would be possible.  We miss you Mick and
dedicate all that we do to you and Ann. We miss you!

Cajun Deep-Fried Turkey

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups butter
  • 1/4 cup onion juice
  • 1/4 cup garlic juice
  • 1/4 cup Louisiana-style hot sauce
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 7 fluid ounces beer
  • 3 gallons peanut oil for frying, or as needed
  • 1 (12 pound) whole turkey, neck and giblets removed

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion juice, garlic juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, cayenne pepper and beer. Mix until well blended.
  2. Use a marinade injecting syringe or turkey baster with an injector tip to inject the marinade all over the turkey including the legs, back, wings, thighs and breasts. Place in a large plastic bag and marinate overnight in the refrigerator. Do not use a kitchen trash bag. If your turkey is large, you can use an oven bag.
  3. When it's time to fry, measure the amount of oil needed by lowering the turkey into the fryer and filling with enough oil to cover it. Remove the turkey and set aside.
  4. Heat the oil to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). When the oil has come to temperature, lower the turkey into the hot oil slowly using the hanging device that comes with turkey deep-fryers. The turkey should be completely submerged in the oil. Cook for 36 minutes, or 3 minutes per pound of turkey. The turkey is done when the temperature in the thickest part of the thigh reaches 180 degrees F (80 degrees C). Turn off the flame and slowly remove from the oil, making sure all of the oil drains out of the cavity. Allow to rest on a serving platter for about 20 minutes before carving.

 

 

 

 BBQ Ribs-

 After brining and/or marinating and/or par-boiling and/or seasoning with rub and/or prepping the ribs they way you like before cooking – first step is to place the ribs in the grill or smoker and cook:

 * 3 hours (approximately) of slow cooking at or about 225F – 250F degrees using traditional indirect heat method with some wood smoke

 The next step is to wrap the ribs in foil and cook:

 * 2 hours (approximately) of slow cooking at or about 225F – 250F degrees using traditional indirect heat method wrapped in foil with some sauce or liquid added

 And to finish … the ribs remain wrapped in the foil, maybe a bit more liquid is added and they get:

 * 1 hour (approximately) of ‘hold time’ in an insulated container (cooler without ice!) or closed oven – still wrapped in foil.  If necessary and/or desired before serving use “some” exposure to direct grilling heat to finish up the glaze or to crisp the skin to the degree that
you please yourself.
