    Any of you mensa rocket scientists want to explain to me how outside of Trump's "make america great" motto and your hatred for "the b!tch", there's any substance to our president elect?  (hint: no deflections)

    I will....and it has nothing to do with mottos or campaign rhetoric, which I largely don't buy into anyway.

    The middle class has been getting its collective ass kicked in this country for decades, and not just from Obama & Co.  He's just the latest, but not the only.  Many in the GOP were just as to blame, including the predecessor, although sometimes for different reasons.  It's just become more and more evident over the last couple of terms and the folks finally had enough.  The culprit and root of the problem is the career politician who has never done anything outside of campaigning or holding political office.

    Trump is the ultimate outsider, a businessman, understands economics not in the theoretical world, but the real world.  He understands what drives the economy and ultimately brings about prosperity.  Things like incentivizing businesses and corporations to come here instead of leave (leaving out specifics 'cause they're insinuated and fairly obvious), putting more money in the pockets of the people instead of dreaming up more schemes to take it away.

    My thoughts are his strengths are largely economic in nature and is what will work best for him and is also why he got elected.  Of course the left was going to fight him, but when the GOP fat cats turned on him, THAT's when I knew he was on to something.  The Hillary hate was always there, but that was a given and really secondary.   

    And I didn't even vote for him in the primary, but looking back, think he may very well be the best choice.     

  • Re: Cedar Wood Table Finish.

    I used Olympic semi-transparent stain/sealant combo on mine.  I've had it sitting outside in the elements in Texas for close to two years and it looks great.  They have a variety of colors and also just a clear sealant or a cedar natural tone if you prefer the natural look. 
  • Re: OT - Paying Respects for the Fallen Dallas Police Officers.

    Thanks again, Fred, for your thoughtful post about our local LEO who got ambushed and gunned down by a racist maniac and whose families are left without a spouse/father/son/brother.  Kind of thought that's what this thread was about when you posted.

    Maybe if some others have some type of political grievance, this ain't the place to spout it.  Perhaps start another thread. 

  • Re: Lump Consumption

    Nope....that would be assuming that I'm doing a shoulder AND assuming I use 4 lbs. of lump (you assume a chicken is always a low and slow).

    First of all, it would be less than 5 lbs. in the first 6 cooks AND less than 4 lbs. on average to do a butt or ribs.  Actually do probably three times as many rib cooks as butts also, which makes a difference.   Hell even at HeavyG's average, I'm at 4.5.  And mine are on average less than his timewise.

    Bottom line is you are wrong.  I wouldn't sit here and tell you your experience is wrong because I have no knowledge of yours.  I don't know how long you let your fire go before putting the food on, I don't know how long you let your fire burn after you take it off, just as you have zero clue when it comes to my cook.

    And I never mentioned hot dogs.....never cooked 'em, at least on the Egg.  Another assumption on your part.

    Nothing more annoying when the guy who thinks he's the smartest in the room is anything but.    

  • Re: Lump Consumption

    My numbers are in line with yours @Mikee as stated in my post earlier in the thread.  That's over three years using the Egg.  So I know your numbers are/can be accurate.  Some just like to stir up **** for some reason.
