I guess the trick of adding castor oil to beans does work. I'm not nearly as gassy as with the previous experiments, and the farts I do have aren't malodorous (yes, I know the old joke). But they didn't cook up as tender as last time, lacking hambones to help hold in the heat. Today though, I got a good deal on a Lodge dutch oven, $12.99 minus 20% senior discount at Goodwill, and have the beans back in the heatbox, with some uncured salami and the rest of my jar of olives, until dinnertime. Hoping the flavors blend well.

Also bought a pretty good snorkel for about $3 to take to Baja.
