    @Lit I like that yellow OTG in the back.  I've never seen that color.

    Drinking cheap beer, wishing I was in Salado, and pondering what to cook next. 
    I raise my kids, cook and golf.  When work gets in the way I'm pissed, I'm pissed off 48 weeks a year.

    Up LATE babysitting my first 'low and slow' cook.   XL running about 250 or so at the dome and my TC reads about 232 at the grate level.    This is about as cool as its been.  
    The 8lb or so Pork Shoulder on now smells wonderful, even a mere 4 hours after going on.  Charcoal load was up to the top of the ring so I hope I have enough to go the distance.   No Peeking!

    Just doing my morning world check via the Internet, about to make pancakes with maple syrup and the last bag of home made bacon ( 30 lbs in cure as I type though), then breaking through the last little bit of snow and ice to get at the egg table and setting up for ribs today and a wing fest tomorrow

    I usually fill my XL and make a bit of a cone out of the lump.  Purposefully leaving a couple of grate holes in the front and a couple of the back clear.  The XL is amazingly efficient.  I can get several low and slow's out of one fill of lump.  And several cooks after that.
    I don't understand the arguments that the XL burns more lump.  It's a simple function of air control.  It can only burn as much lump as the amount of air you allow in.

    Cheers! I'm sure you're cook will be fine.

    Sitting in the car dreading sitting in the rain for 2hrs watching lacrosse. Don't mind the lacrosse, wouldn't mind the rain if it were 20 or so degrees warmer.

    Wish I hadn't complained about the rain. Now I'm sitting at the medical care place waiting on an X-ray. Dammit.

    About to head to BB&B to pick up a cutting board and likely a few other items I haven't a use for... Wish I was at Salado, maybe next year.. Pouring rain, so I am going to do the more traditional boiled Irish dinner later

    @GrannyX4 @legume thanks. 

    Xray was inconclusive, but his growth plates are wide open and the convenient care doesn't have a radiologist on staff. A PA who specializes in orthopedics happened to be on today. She said it's hard to tell sometimes so they splinted it up and referred us to the ortho for next week. 

    We we hoping for the best as a fracture would mean no lacrosse for the rest of the season and we're going to Universal in a couple of weeks for spring break.

    That sucks.  My oldest grand did the same thing the week before he went to cooperstown for baseball.  On the bright side a wheelchair gets you to the head of the line.  Saves on the fast pass.

    Waiting around for 12 noon.  Leaving work to wait for delivery on a generator.  
    Thankfully it came before the window they told me. Was delivered freight and they guy even trucked it into my garage  (my driveway is around 168' and he had to park on the road ).

    Bummer!  Been there done that got the cast to prove it.

    Hope the ortho has good news next week.
