    Needed a few items from Ace Hardware, added in a couple bags of Rockwood as it was $6. off.  Not sure if this is a local or all locations sale.  Might want to check your area store(s).

    Question:  does your local supermarket offer packages of drums, thighs, and wings?  I had/have a new recipe to try on wings (thread to follow) but my market had two dozen packages of thighs in the frig section, and maybe four dozen packages of drums, but no wings at all.  I'm not a (chicken) leg guy at all, so I picked up a pkg of thighs and am pressing on with the recipe.  
    But I couldn't figure out why there were NO wings!?!  Is that the case in your area?

    - Wings are few and far between here. Fryer leg quarters and drumsticks are in abundance.
    - With the above said the Commissaries at Oceana, LCRK and Langley seem to have wings when I get roped in to going there.

    Yes, I forgot to mention our Commissary always has wings, but usually in packages of 12 or 24; not ideal for me.

    I too prefer packs of 72-144, but I found through trial and error if you buy 12 packs of 12 you get 144 and then via simulation 6 packs of 24 will get you 144 also.  I need to confirm that with empirical data.

    I could, and if I end up buying a small chest freezer like I'd threatened elsewhere, this would then work.  The tiny freezer I have now is already full.

    No.  We run weekend activities through the end of October.  Pool stays heated and open until mid-October.  But, the pace has certainly slowed now that school is back in session.  The weekdays are much quieter.

    I hope so too. Thanks!  Waiting on electrical and tree trimming.  The towers communicate on a 60Ghz channel and need line of site. Some trees are getting a big trim.

    Saw a ewetube review of the new BS oven. The guy complained it gets way too hot after the first pie, even at the lowest setting. There's probably a secret lowest setting where/when the dial is almost at the off mark that he's not aware off.

    With my luck, lightning would take that rascal out after I trimmed the trees.

    Growing up in the late '70's, early '80's, my Dad had a 40' tower, Channel Master antenna and a "Moonraker" CB Antenna on top of that.  He pulled TV stations from a state away and could talk on the CB for miles.  Lightning hit it four times before the insurance guy told him to get cable or he was canceling the policy.  I still remember him pushing a flaming Zenith console out the slider one evening.

    @Canugghead, I have the new black stone oven and don’t think that’s the case at all. I prefer deep dish. With the ooni it was always too hot for that. With the blackstone it is super easy to dial down the temperature. And the rotating stone is a nice feature. With the ooni I was constantly turning. Also allows for bigger pies.

    When I googled "blackstone pizza oven" in Chrome (not in ewetube), this is the first video. Looks tempting but I already have the PP Ardore, waiting for an electric one when the price comes down down the road. Cooking pizza in GWN winter is no fun ;(

    Please don't misunderstanding, I totally believe you. I should have made it clearer that I saw just the first video that crossed my path, could be an  isolated case or user error.

    These four towers are replacing 8 mesh units that sit on telescoping flagpoles made of fiberglass.  I have lost two or three units to lightning in 5 years.  Not terrible.  But very similar to your story, my insurance guy told me to stop claiming them.  I did get dropped from one carrier, not that the Wi-Fi units were the straw that broke the camel's back, but it was a contributing factor.

    I'd be inclined to install a few bollards around that tower.

    @GrateEggspectations I think this complements your beautiful back deck better than the el cheapo Geek Chef? Don't worry, i can help you dispose of the GC. Seriously though, don't buy unless you want to ruin my credibility with your better half ;)


    That looks like a neat unit, but I’m fully committed to Geeking out. While it’s not as sturdy nor as impressive as this Blackstone, I like the portability and price of the Geek Chef. If we have a pizza night planned and it’s pouring rain or snowing heavily, I can relocate the GC to the front, covered porch, where I also keep my second MM, for the same reason.
