  • Re: Computer printer cartridge conundrum. Can any of you computer/IT folks help me understand?

    Epson makes some printers that use a continuous ink supply system that you refill from large bottles of ink. They are cheaper in the  long run.  There are pros and cons to this approach and you can do a Google search to see them.

    Since this is a corporate environment, I'm surprised your IT department hasn't installed network attached printers with a color laserjet printer in each area. This is a much cheaper approach with no need to buy everyone their own printer and cartridges.

    Charcoal reviews can be found at

    I've never tried this brand but it seems pretty expensive. Rockwood from Firecraft is much cheaper and shipping is free if you spend over $99.

  • Re: Charcoal Reuse

    I always fill up my egg to near the top of the fire ring every time I cook.  I first stir the old coals to get any ash to fall into the bottom, then dump in new on top.  I empty the bottom part every 4 or so cooks to keep a good airflow.  I don't so any sorting or removal of the old or new lump.  Takes about 5 minutes to get everything ready for a new cook.

    @NPHuskerFL thats the way they were packaged at the store.  there was a pack of 4 bone in and multiple packs of boneless.

    @JMCXL - first time cooking them i was hoping for  4 hours or so.
    I generally cook them at about 250 at the grid and it takes 5-7 hours.  I prefer the ones that are not cut up - speak to the butcher and ask them for the full slab.  In my opinion, they taste better and cook better.  Restaurant Depot sells them uncut - usually 4 slabs per cryovac package.

    They are really great.
