  • Re: OT - Who is Your All-Time Favorite SNL Performer?

    Another vote for John Belushi.  Had forgotten about Martin and Akroyd wild and crazy guy skits, started giggling as soon as I saw previous post.  They were classic all the way.  Garret Morris always the perfect side kick, never got the credit he deserved. 
  • Re: Need help from the Weber guys

    I still have and regularly use my Weber kettle.  Always use a Weber chimney, lump charcoal, and a Weber starter cube to start.  I use it now primarily, and actually prefer over Egg, for grilling.  The ability to get all the charcoal on one side for indirect is sooooo much easier.  I have done low and slow on it prior to getting my Egg though with pretty good results.  I basically did the Minion method of lining up the charcoal around the outside and started one end.  Worked great, but temp control, longevity of cook, and insulation no where near the Egg.  A kettle is a great way to start on a budget, learn the tricks of the trade, and enjoy the journey.  Save up for an Egg down the road.  Best of luck and enjoy!!!!!
  • Re: Wangs-whole or split into drumettes and flappers?

    I snip off the tips and do the drum and flapper together.  Less work, I think it helps in retaining moisture, and everyone gets equal shares.
