Also yeah packaged white bread loses out to texture, not so much flavor, though the flavor is one dimensional, it's definitely there, and honestly a relatively :"boring" bread like that has a great set of uses, only real problem is that it's not a substantial source of anything other than diabetes and feels like you've eaten nothing at all when you just put 300 calories in your body.
As far as the most "enjoyable" grilled cheese experience is for me, I like to add bacon bits inside the grilled cheese and eat it with tomato soup. But if we're talking about purity then I'll have it plain with nothing on the side (and then I'll usually eat two because I'm a fat fuck and who the hell eats only one grilled cheese sandwich without a side those things are tiny).
If you put put anything other than cheese in between the bread slices you are no longer making a grilled cheese sandwich and need to fuck right off.
I'm a heathen who dips in mustard, admittedly. Sometimes I feel like it's something only my dad, brother, and I do. Tomato soup and ketchup are also fine, but mustard is so good!
whoah whoah whoah, buddy. I completely agree with your first point, but if you're dipping it, I'm gonna claim that you are not eating a real grilled cheese. I've dipped in tomato soup and in mustard. Both are great! Both are impure. (Butter/margarine/oil/salt are ok - especially if their purpose is cooking the bread)
Anyway I voted "none" for dipping, but Vin Fiz for the ingredients. I actually don't really know how to make grilled cheese!
I think plain bread is best, whether that's white, wheat, texas toast, etc. Oats won't ruin it for me, but...I guess that's kinda like my sauce point: if you add oats, you're venturing too far away from bread+cheese.
The cheese has gotta be melty. But it's also gotta taste great. I wish I could make a grilled cheese with parmesan, for the taste...but it just doesn't liquefy. My dad used to use Velveeta.
I don't care for cheddar in grilled cheese sandwiches, it tends to get a little oily and loses a lot of its flavor when it melts. The best cheese I've found is American, but not the packaged Kraft American, get the stuff in the deli that actually has flavor and texture.
Sometimes I like to add a slice of swiss, as swiss toasts and melts really nicely. A good dense sourdough is the ultimate bread for a grilled cheese. Also this poll is incomplete as it's missing the critical "Which fat do you use?" category, as any grilled cheese sandwich made without butter is a mockery and should be re-labelled a panini because that's what it fucking is eat my ass.
This album came just at the right time, I've been listening to so much super energy J-fusion lately I needed something chilled out to counterbalance, the bass sounds in this are ridiculous and I absolutely love the guitar playing.
Yeah in the end this is all bullshit that doesn't actually matter anyway, we're talking about differences of 0-5% at best, which are irrelevant in a mix or on stage,
I agree and disagree. There are enough other variables that it's reasonably insignificant, but if you're going to drop $1k or more on custom made guitar parts to your specs, it's probably good to have enough information to guess at eliminating as many 0-5% losses as possible.
You're totally right, but what I mean is that people, even guitarists and even your immediate guitarist friends, only care about your gear+tone about 5% to the extent that you do. So in the end all of our gear talk and aesthetic choices are for our own personal benefit and nobody else's. Once I understood that I became much happier with just buying guitars I like looking at above all else instead of spending weeks trying to figure out if I can play iron maiden covers with a mahogany guitar.
Yeah in the end this is all bullshit that doesn't actually matter anyway, we're talking about differences of 0-5% at best, which are irrelevant in a mix or on stage, but to the guy who bought a $6000 Les Paul and $4000 plexi and a set of legendary $250/each NOS Heinz Tubes they made that in 1955 when there was a tomato shortage it's the most important difference in the world.
"Honey you don't understand these are THE tubes Jimmy [Page] used in his first ever session recording that was lost and nobody's ever heard but the producer was quoted as saying it sounded like [some stupid metaphor about a horny woman and nostalgia] and that's the impossible idea I'm spending all our money searching for instead of learning to play guitar!"
