That's an easy one.
Tabasco.
I buy it in 12oz bottles instead of the more common 2oz bottles.

Mosquitoes? I'll tell you about mosquitoes.
I was stationed at Eielson AFB, AK (Fairbanks) for 4 years.
Once, a mosquito landed on the runway. POL tried to refuel it.

We have protections in place to prevent cheating. Things like nominating one's own photo, or registering multiple accounts don't work.

You can't fix stupid but buffalo occasionally remove some of it from the gene pool.

No, it's strictly cosmetic.

I believe Canadian whiskey can be duplicated, or at least approximated, by the following method:
1 pint of cheap bourbon
1 pint of cheap vodka.
6 packets of saccharin
2 tablespoons vinegar
A dash of alum
Some brown shoe polish (for color)

Mix equal equal parts vodka and bourbon. (water will remove flavor as effectively as vodka, but would result in a reduced alcohol content, so vodka is advisable.)
Add the saccharine and alum.
Add shoe polish while stirring well until the desired color is achieved.

I like bourbon, occasionally.
Canadian whiskey is another story. From what I have found in researching the subject "Canadian whiskey" has a fairly loose definition.
To legally be called bourbon the spirit must be distilled from at least 51% corn, must be aged for a minimum specified time, must be barreled at a specified maximum proof and bottled at a minimum proof, cannot have additives, and, I believe, distilled in the United States.
Similarly, tequila must be produced in one of a few specfied Mexican states, must be a minimum of 51% blue agave (mezcal can be from any species of agave), and probably a few other requirements that I don't recall.
It seems that to be called Canadian whiskey the spirit must be distilled in Canada. Pretty much anything else goes, and judging from the Canadian whiskeys I've tried, I believe it.

You remember correctly. Peat, salt, seaweed, iodine and smoke. Characteristics of all of the Islay (pronounced 'eye-la') malts that set them apart from the others.
I drink two types of Scotch. The cheapest blend I can find, and any of the Islay malts. Anything else is a compromise.
Ardbeg is my favorite.

Say it aloud, ignoring the spelling of "pea", and you'll get the joke. :D

Interesting statement from one who recently complained that the mods don't stifle opinions that haven't been confirmed as fact.
Of course, that's just my opinion.

Based on your reply, and the one that Bob made and then deleted, I'm starting to think there isn't much confidence in my culinary skills.

You've outdone yourself. You've posted some, well, "interesting" photos over the years, but that one is just plain disturbing!
