I have done it after thousands of pounds of charcoal ran thru my egg last night could never be topped again. The best cowboy ribeye of my life. So I have officially retired. Who is going to cook for me now? Lol

    Going out on that banquet would be a fine gesture but you know you want to replicate it.  Great cook.  Nailed that $$ shot as well.

    That will be hard to top.  And as much as it is tempting to go out as a champion, I suspect you'll be like most of us and keep chasing perfection while you regress to the mean.

    You cannot retire. You have to make that meal for all of us now.

    Nice.  I recently finished Demon Souls Remake, and really wanna get Elden Ring when I get more spare time.

    We all know, the itch that can’t be scratched to a standstill will persist. It may be quiet for the moment, but it rear it’s ugly head. Maybe you will smell a little smoke as you stop at a red light from the local Q. Maybe someone in the neighborhood will light some lump. Either way, be prepared. Looks killer I’m jealous.

    He will see some poor newb start to use Cowboy lump and say “just this once”. Of course any of the 12 step programs could tell him that there’s no such thing as just once.
