    Great idea. Up here in Canada we use mainly metric so if there is anyone who does that there is a website called Onlineconversion.com that is really good. Sorry I dont know how to put the address on so you just click on it. thks Piker

    Here is a site I really like for substitutions. Seems my lack of planning lands me on the site from time to time when I am looking to avoid a store run for a certain herb or spice.

    I find that you can easily substitute Bill for Fatback without any concernible differences.

    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.
