  • That is a great price! We're looking for something a little larger though. Probably an 8 X 16 or a 10 X 16.
  • I could have had either set. I agree with @The Cen-Tex Smoker. The composite is ugly, but a much better table. Also, given the fact that I'm a sanitation freak, there was really no other choice for me. I can sanitize to my heart's content.
  • Probably terrible advise but I was debating the harbor freight green house. What do you like about that one @Jeremiah? We'll be growing some heirloom tomatoes and they get pretty tall, so we'll need at least 9 feet of clearance in the middle if p…
  • You are so right @Skiddymarker. Screaming hot cast iron + BGE = perfection.
  • Me too @SciAggie. Plan, so far, is to have it installed before the fall growing season comes around.
  • Thanks @pgprescott! I'm a little rusty on posting, but things have settled down and I'm getting back up to speed now.
  • I am sure that the Margaritaville is a fine machine and does a great job, but not everyone loves a Margarita. We do have guests on occasion that want one when they spy the Vitamix, so we oblige. Here's a recipe from the Vitamix site for a great Marg…
  • Absolutely. Bought my first white FoodSaver in the '70's. When we switched to a stainless steel kitchen, sent it to my brother's hunt camp where it is still going strong. Bought the stainless steel model and use it daily. We buy the rolls and cut to…
  • Looking good @RRP. It's not even 8:00 here yet, but I could go for one of those.
  • @newby84, we went through a couple of those when we got our egg almost 19 years ago. The dealer told us to set a timer and pull the starter around 5 minutes after plugging it in. Haven't had to replace one since. That being said, we have switched to…
  • Just an observation of the video, but the thickness of the pasta seemed to be much thicker than what I am used to doing. Also, I didn't notice the water boiling. It seemed more like he simmered it for lack of a better description. I could be wrong t…

  • Trying to get a pic for you guys of a squirrel hanging upside down from a limb and lifting the lid off a bird feeder. He's tried it twice and had it lifted a little, but couldn't grab the camera quick enough. Just want to share if I can get the pic.…
  • Looks like everyone had a great time. Thanks guys for posting pics for those of us that couldn't make it there this year. Hope to see more tomorrow. @YukonRon, I knew I could count on you guys to lift a few glasses for us. Hope everyone gets home sa…
  • I'd do it again without question. Same here. Doesn't matter how long you've had them. They're still family.
  • I hear ya @DoubleEgger, they're expensive, but worth it. Heck, our vet even calls to check up on ours after a vet visit. They get better care than we do, lol. Just curious, what did your pet have that warranted a bill like that? We did have one that…
  • Dang, @Dyal_SC, sorry to hear about Sassy. So glad she's recovering. I despise snakes of almost any kind, especially poisonous ones. That being said, who doesn't have at least one $1500 pet from vet bills? I thought that was mandatory. 
  • Thanks @northGAcock. That means a lot. I trust you guys will post many pictures from the weekend so we can live vicariously through everyone having fun. we will raise a glass in your honor  Could you make it two glasses? Both a slushie and a blood…
  • Thanks @YukonRon. I really appreciate that. Thank Robin for me too. Luckily, I am a very optimistic person and I know things will work out for the best. Hubby calls me Pollyanna a lot, but it works for me. Gracie Lou is a little scrapper and always …
  • @northGAcock, you have no idea how much we want to attend. We could use a fun weekend like nobody's business. If it were held in Asheville, we could come for a day, but Salisbury is out of the question. We have so much going on in dealing with proba…
  • @tjosborne, love the pizza oven. It's ready to go in a matter of minutes and holds a constant temp for multiple pies. Don't get me wrong, still love zas on the egg, but it just depends on what we're doing and how many we need to make. The Camp Chef …
  • I build and cook all my zas on a screen, but I use a Camp Chef pizza oven, but I imagine the results would be about the same on the egg. I just spray them with Pam and build. No parchment paper needed. Each pizza only takes about 7 minutes to cook. …
  • Fine looking bird!
  • I'll let you know after our yard guy comes tomorrow. We have about an acre and he does a great job. We're too old for this sh!t. Our neighbors have been out in force working on theirs for days and we just laugh. At our age, we just hire it out. Don'…
  • Ham, mashed potatoes, and steamed broccoli.
  • Looking good and well worth the effort. Hard to beat a good homemade pizza.
  • @pab, I also have the Brod & Taylor and it does a great job and, as you said, it folds up when not needed. Not sure if you knew or not, but they now make an add on tray to double the proofing area. Comes in handy when needed. Use mine mostly for…
  • Looks fantastic @eggnewtoy. Chicken on the Joetisserie is fantastic.
  • Thank you so much @northGAcock, would love to make this year's Butt Blast. We'll have to see what we can do. Would love to see some smiles and friends for a change. You guys are the best.
  • @YukonRon, I know that you and Suzy had to deal with a similar situation not too long ago. If one lives long enough, these things are inevitable. Thank you for your thoughts. We really appreciate it. Can't remember when we fired up the egg last, but…
  • Thanks, @bgebrent, it's never easy even when it's expected. Looking forward to normal.
