When Secret Recipes Stay Secret

"[A]s Mark tells it, when he, Eric and Doyle decided to recreate their dad’s marinade for their new chef, 'Doyle says, ‘Well, it’s two tablespoons of this, a teaspoon of that,’ and Eric said, ‘No, no, it’s a tablespoon of this, and two tablespoons of that,’ and then I chimed in and said, ‘You guys are wrong. That tablespoon you’re talking about is not even in there!’ When the brothers consulted their emails from the Admiral, they realized they had three different recipes. 'He kept the secret recipe with him,' Eric says with a laugh."—The Big Board's Brothers Flannery, telling WAMU about their failed attempts to recreate their father's secret flank-steak marinade
