  • Tommy, I didn't catch the rest of the story (you're probably editing it)..but "what brought that on" is those (positively) throwing around the tired old feel good phrases that we hear all too often. They then connect them with some 'Xanadu' that is…

  • I believe that it is similar to the same effect as smothering the fire with the chips; especially if it was 'legs up' and you had a lot of lump in there. For some reason, I really like to get mine smoking to beat the band when I close the lid for th…

  • "..I'd planned on my first egg being an XL but that's still a ways off..." Good choice and welcome. The MM has given us a new (every day) appreciation for how much we enjoyed the XL (on occasion). I like the fact that the MM (seemingly) doesn't run …
  • Thanks, stlcharcoal..not knocking your evaluation of the FB or questioning the validity of the accolades that you've received here while servicing them (which I'm certain are well deserved). I simply see a market for the 'above' $100 or so products…

  • I'm waiting for somebody to come out with a simplified version of the above which doesn't run $350 or so yet still works. One boasted industrial style plugs before they disappeared. I don't need to learn my cooks. I don't need 'clouds' or to be noti…
