  • Re: How do you get it going??

    Bernzomatic TS4000 torch.  About $40.  It uses both MAP and propane, but I prefer propane because it's cheaper at $3 a canister versus $10 and I can't tell the difference. 

    I light three spots for about 20-30 seconds each and am cooking in 10 minutes.  I go through maybe two canisters a year and cook on average four nights a week.  I wouldn't do it any other way. 

  • Re: Who do you side with?

    Rubio (who I really like personally and love his story) was my highest, followed by Paul and Cruz.  But honestly I'm looking hard at the only nonpoliticians from either side, Trump, Carson and Fiorina.  Sick and damn tired of the lifelong politico, most of whom have never had a real job in their life.

    Sanders was at the bottom which is not surprising since he's a self-professed socialist.     

  • Re: OT-Anyone have a foam mattress?

    After looking and pricing forever, we finally bought a memory foam mattress from Costco online for about a quarter of the others we were considering.  That was over a year ago and I'm so glad we did.  They have a no questions asked return policy which made it easy, but I spent about $600 when I was planning on spending around $3K.

    I have little doubt that it's as good or close to the quality of the others we were looking at that were 4x the price.  We have loved it so far.

  • Re: Large BGE Table, 15" or 17" height

    I would go with 16" depth from top of shelf to tabletop.  This will give you 1/2" to 3/4" hinge clearance on top with the table nest.
  • Re: Beginnings of my table build

    I don't, but can take some tomorrow.  And you're right.  17" should give you a perfect fit and you will be fine, but I just like to give it a bit extra just to be safe.  At a minimum, I'd go 16.5" just to ensure you won't get any "rub" later on, for lack of a better word.  Hardly a noticeable difference really.
