Venus? That would dehydrate well. and require very little external energy. :)

When he was located in Pleasanton , we shared an appt in Fremont in the late 80's after we got jobs. He would bring home lots of charcoal, bbq sauce and that hideous ranch dressing. I liked the briquettes the most, as I'm a old-school bbq guy.
Personally, i do think Ranch tastes like it might have a tad touch of bleach in it. :p
Who was your college roomie? Judy worked at Clorox R&D as a microbiologist from something like 1992 (or was it 1993) until 2004 or so. She did bring home some of those dressing samples, but since neither of us liked their dressings that much, that only happened early on. The KC Masterpiece stuff was a bit more useful. I used that for my "marinating" BBQ sauce to set up my own homemade ("Oakland-style") BBQ sauce that I slop on after grilling. Kingsford is still my go-to charcoal, so the Kingsford samples were extremely useful for us.

GB.. PM sent.

Eric, to back up your claim about ranch :evil: (the intro on this recipe was funny. if you make it yourself and you like it to each their own)

here's an interesting recipe: http://www.chow.com/recipes/28753-basic-ranch-dressing" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

not to switch context too much, but do you dehydrate ranch and take it with you into the mountains?

Russ.. evidently a weirdo.

Too late. And no, I don't take ranch with me. In fact, all I ever really use it for is as a dipping sauce for raw snack veggies.

Mention of ranch was barely noticeable and as an afterthought "TT Tip" in the OP recipe. I'm blown away that such a minor reference to something as harmless as ranch dressing would prompt a thread hijacking.

I have to share in Russ' disdain for ranch dressing. I had so much of it AND Cup O' Noodle (not at the same time) in college, that the smell of either one, even to this day, makes me feel nauseous. Yeah, it's been over 20 years, but that buttermilk and herb stench...yich! If others are cool with it, great, but keep it away from me, thank you.

Perhaps you guys should start your own thread about your disdain for ranch dressing, or hey, maybe form a hate group with your own Facebook page where like minds can b**** about it all they want. :smirk:

some background on the sauce of which you speak: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huy_Fong_Foods" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

and choices other than from the green tipped bottle:

I wonder if they dehydrate the chilis before they make sriracha?

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
