    As stated, you will likely not do better than an alloy of 50/50+2% for our mid Atlantic deer. PC is not even needed, supersonic is not needed, if you can scratch it with a thumbnail IT IS ALREADY a good hunting alloy. Soft lube highly recommended....

    Cinnamon and basil on pork are really good. Sauteed pork chops with a bit of both are great. On ribs, you don't really taste the cinnamon, or the curry powder, you taste the basil and the Sweet Baby Rays and of course the hickory smoke flavor.
