How to Roast Coffee at Home on a Grill

by Jeremy Anderberg

“Little campfires, rapidly increasing to hundreds in number, would shoot up along the hills and plains and, as if by magic, acres of territory would be luminous with them. Soon they would be surrounded by the soldiers, who made it an almost invariable rule to cook their coffee first, after which a large number, tired […]

How to Read a Book

by Jeremy Anderberg

1. Open book. 2. Read words. 3. Close book. 4. Move on to next book. Reading a book seems like a pretty straightforward task, doesn’t it? And in some cases, it is. If you’re reading purely for entertainment or leisure, it certainly can be that easy. There’s another kind of reading, though, in which we […]

How to Make Smoked BBQ Ribs

by A Manly Guest Contributor

Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from Jeff Mcintyre. Learning basic cooking skills was not a priority for me while growing up.

America’s First Popular Men’s Magazine: The National Police Gazette

by Brett & Kate McKay

Several years ago I was wandering the stacks at the University of Tulsa library when I happened to chance upon an old, pink book with the words “Police Gazette” gilded on the spine in fancy script. I don’t know why, but I took it off the shelf and started to thumb through it. Inside I […]

Solvitur Ambulando: It Is Solved By Walking
