First cook with Wegman's (Royal Oak?) lump

TjcoleyTjcoley Posts: 3,528
Major change of plans tonight.  Originally planned on a rare night out with the neighbors at a new neighborhood Italian restaurant, until my son rolled my car.  He's fine except for a burned hand from the airbag and a head ache, car is totaled.  Didn't want to leave him home alone with a sick 3 yo, so decided to Egg tomorrows planned spatch chicken. Egg was already cleaned out and loaded with Wegman's lump.  Took out the chicken and it was still half frozen.  Settled for boneless, skinless chicken breasts.  The Wegman's lump lit easily, came up to temp quick, and was ready to cook just as quickly of not more so than the WGWW I've been using.  At $6 for 10 pound, I may have found a new lump.  A bit of crackling while lighting, but no sparks.

    Thanks guys.  He was fine til he got home and I kicked his a$$.  Third car he has totaled, last one only 6 months ago.  @bigphil same here for my Wegman's.  This is the first I've seen it this year.

    I'm sorry but I wouldn't have let him drive after the second totaled car.

    Glad he's ok though.

    First one was not his fault - hit by someone while stopped.  Second one, he was rear ended and pushed into the car in front.  This one was result of a blow out front tire on a curvy road.  Hard to put all the blame on him.  Still ticks me off, since this one was my car.

    It is RO. It's what I use and I love it.

    Sorry about your car; thank goodness your son was able to get his butt kicked by you. It could have been much worse.

    Anytime someone totals a car and can still walk i would consider lucky!!  Now totaling three cars is time to start him over "on a bike" WITH PEDDLES ! ;)
