    I’ve decided that cooking biscuits is my kryptonite. They just suck. I wish I had paid more attention when my grandmother was making them. 
    My biscuits tanked for a long time - then one day they started being good. Same recipe - I think you just finally learn how to handle the dough. The dough needs to be really wet and don’t overmix. You don’t want to develop any gluten. 
    I can never get my dough to look like local biscuit joints around here that roll them out. I quit that game a long time ago.  My grandmother never used a rolling pin. She made each biscuit by hand. She was a seamstress so her she knew how how to delicately work the dough with her fingers. No one could duplicate hers even when you
    were making biscuits right along side her doing the same thing. It was all in the fingers. 

    I think you probably know you can crop those screen shots.  🤔
    I like to hit the tube of biscuit dough on the edge of a counter to get a nice satisfying pop.  Then I just separate along the lines, add some pam spray to my tray and put in the oven.  After cooking put a little butter and jelly on them.  Perfect every time.  Just like the picture on the tube.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    Very sorry @Dyal_SC and @bubbajack. We put our dog down last year, and it was just heartbreaking.  Hang in there.

    I just learned something today, thank you!  I've always plucked at that stupid aluminum tab, get frustrated, and end up grabbing my bread knife; bet it was designed by the same person who did the stupid string on the lump bag...

    I saw this today and thought I would pass it along to all of you. Can’t you feel momentum building? 
    I love pumpkin spice. It is one of my favorite scents for shaving soap. I especially like it in the Fall. 

    It is also one of my very favorite cakes. I love all things pumpkin 🎃

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Lodge released a new more upscale line of skillets with their Blacklock line a couple months ago. Now I read that Lodge has just bought the Finex company and will be moving their production to the Lodge factory in Tennessee. Word is they won't be cutting prices on the Finex stuff.
    Wondering if Lodge might add more of the "boutique" cast iron makers that have popped up in recent years to the Lodge family.

    @JohnInCarolina ; Cutting edge for sure.  I am guessing there will be heavy focus on modeling and simulation to test proven designs and future concepts. 
    Reading the news a couple of months ago, it appears that the Russians don't have that capability and need to go with the low-yield testing for validation.  But that's from a WSJ article I read.  Anyhow, congrats on the contract.
    BTW- have fun with @henapple in the East Bay.  Just speak kindly about OO and all will be well. 
    Safe travels-

    Gotta admit, if I were visiting a town for the first time, I wouldn't count on a good 'que experience from a clean modern storefront like that.  Although, your last pic looks totally legit.

    @lkapigian - You must have many options and super powers to even think you can hide that.  Congrats on the buy as that is quite a high volume smoker.
