  • Here's what I use to brine larger birds and turkeys. I use a food save disposable plastic bag and put the bird in it and then pour in a gallon or two at most of the brine. Tightly seal the bag and place it in this food safe water cooler. Then fill t…
  • No. And I have long been an advocate of vigorously shaking any brand of lump before purchasing to blindly understand the condition of the lump inside. Seeing you are in FL then I wonder if your bag got wet...Honesty I have never ever seen this issue…
  • Though there clearly is a hard finish of some sort on that board which may be what is burning, but surely the wood underneath has gotten a burnt scar in the process.
  • Carolina Q said: Wonder why Cincinnati claims to be the "Queen City". So does Charlotte. As for hot dogs, Pearl Franks (made in Mass) are the best I've ever tasted. @RRP used to think so too, but I guess he got tired of spending the money for…
  • Seriously - make yourself a frame and nail on a piece of 1/2" hardware cloth. When getting near the bottom of the sack dump the rest in there, shake and dump the remaining into your box.
  • bgebrent said: RRP said: Thanks for the reminder! I haven't backed up my Time Machine since March! Me bad, but the backup is in progress now! Ron, you likely know this but you can set your Time Machine/Capsule to back up automat…
  • Thanks for the reminder! I haven't backed up my Time Machine since March! Me bad, but the backup is in progress now!
  • don't want to sound like a hot dog snob, but I only buy natural casing franks - that are more expensive, but worth it to me. BTW only brand I buy now are Boar's Head and in spite of living in a town with 120k population I have to drive to a small to…
  • castironman said: @RRP .. We stayed at The Palmer just a week ago. Fancy place. The lobby bar  makes a fantastic bloody mary ... A++ Thanks! Being a flagship Hilton I didn't think it would have lost any luster. Since posting last nig…
  • CheeseheadinAZ said: @midwestsmoker that is beautiful!!  Is that 2 LG and Mini?  Also can you show if your build-in ash vacuum you mention? +1 on the built-in vacuum - please tell us more
  • For nearly 15 years I had a Monday morning meeting every month at our bank's home office in Chicago down in the Loop. I always drove up Sunday afternoon and checked in to The Palmer House which at least at that time was exquisite! On the lower level…
  • GregW said: I'm glad to hear that you liked them. I may give them a try again "again"? That is an operative word! What didn't you like? Care to share what Kool-Aid flavor you used that may have turned you off? 
  • RedSkip said: These might be good with "zesty" or spicy pickles.  I think zesty is a trade name... I was thinking something more contrasting with my new favorite pickles from these jars!
  • EggObsessed said: @GregW:  Having not been there myself, yet, I don't know much about it.  I know they were recently in the news with a LOT of murders in a few short days.  Read on... http://heyjackass.com
  • Entered for the heck of it! BTW 1 entry per day is allowed so if you are so inclined to increase your chance to 1 in a gazillion bookmark it for a daily ritual!
  • irregardless of what size bag I buy after opened I have always dump some into my coal bucket. The long snout makes filling my eggs easy. An added benefit is it is easier to see foreign objects that might be in the bag such as rocks and whatever!
  • ThrasherIII said: what is the purpose of these? They have the same purpose as small boxes of laundry soap, small bottles of dish soap, small packages of toilet paper. So what are you going to suddenly quit doing the things that require the use …
  • Ozzie_Isaac said: I also use CA glue.  Saves me from ER and stitches. I hear you but while waiting for CA glue to set up, or Liquid Bandage or a styptic pen to work you keep bleeding - whereas this stuff stops the bleeding IMMEDIATELY!
  • mrs_story said: I didn't know about the powder -- only the pencil form.  Is there a benefit to the powder over the pencil?  I've never had to use it, but my husband said it stung when he used it after getting a cut while shaving.  But it stoppe…
  • pgprescott I think it would be best if I moved south, the winters here suck! But but but, Pete...you can't shovel sunshine! How would you ever stay in shape? 
  • XC242 said: RRP said: Wardster said: Thanks Ron.  In reading the recipe, I can't seem to understand what they are saying below?  So, exactly how much wine??? 4 cups, 3 tablespoons, 1-⅞ teaspoons, ¼ pinches Burgundy Win…
  • Wardster said: That looks like a light load of lump?  Is that amount what you normally cook with?  I tend to fill it up mid fire ring. Also, to all KAB owners.  Where exactly are you shaking your lump?  What kind of container are you using? …
  • Little Steven said: It's a clod or chuck roll unless they're laid on top of each other. Be tough to find a flank more than 4 or 5 lbs. ours are usually 2 to 3 I agree, Sir Steven! My personal experience is the 1.5 to 2 pounders are the m…
  • Looks great Pete, but see once again you didn't wait for me to get there tonight...oh never mind I'm eating my steak au poivre and mushrooms here...I forgot...
  • Wardster said: Thanks Ron.  In reading the recipe, I can't seem to understand what they are saying below?  So, exactly how much wine??? 4 cups, 3 tablespoons, 1-⅞ teaspoons, ¼ pinches Burgundy Wine (other Reds Will Work) I neve…
  • mrs_story said: Mmmm . . . I love mushrooms!  But, sadly, my husband and daughter do not.  :-(    They look really yummy! Don't you ever make something just for yourself to enjoy and not feel selfish? These freeze really well and when …
  • pgprescott said: Yum Ron! Bring those up here and I'll brave the heat for the protein. However, the au poivre sounds awesome. Enjoy buddy! Pete - actually I served them one time as one of my offerings at a Peoria Eggfest. I only made a 3…
  • mrs_story said: Mmmm . . . I love mushrooms!  But, sadly, my husband and daughter do not.  :-(    They look really yummy! I peeked at the recipe.  Eight bouillon cubes!  Do you find it to be salty (especially with the additional two teaspoons, …
  • Wardster said: Too late. Got a new nest.  No way it was fitting.  Here is the design of the older ones.  Casters are new.  Chiminea in back has a newer nest Curious about the cage in the picture. What kind of pet is that for?
  • If you need it today and can't wait then yes a standard BGE one made by Tel-Tru is fine. Otherwise if you want to pick from several other options such as size and temperature range look up Tel-Tru or SmokeWare.
