  • Thanks all.  I really appreciate all the wishes.  And according to my new Louisiana drivers license I've got five more birthdays to go before I expire.  Nice of 'em to let me know so I can plan things better.   Poulet de "Nouveau Nid - Nouvelles Re…
  • Thanks for all the comments.  It was a fun and enlightening cook.  One that I will do again. I've had a number of readers from other forums ask about the length of time in the searing step, and about how I kept the ashes off the meat.  This shoul…
  • GATraveller said: How long did you keep it on the coals? (per side) I should have mentioned it in the video, but I forgot.  Thanks for asking.  Since the meat was already cooked to temperature I just wanted to sear it.  I really wasn't…
  • Beautiful. I picked up a nice 'Select' Tri-Tip that I got at Acquitaspace at a great price.  It looked like Prime.   Froze it for a Tri-Tip day.   I plan to Sous Vide it like I did a few back in Texas.  Here's the video of it.  https://youtu.be/Y0E…

  • My Sweetie "Spring Hen" just told me about this thread.  All I can say is that Spring was wonderful for the first 20 or so years.  Then crime began to increase all around us.  Then they were starting to invade our comfort zone. Then it wasn't long …
  • The last time they had the 98¢ sale on, I bought two.  Still have some left or I would have bought two more when shopping there Monday.
  • NPHuskerFL said: Brilliant Leroy!  I'd love this in my own home. Thanks.  We lived in our house in Texas for 29 years, and every time I had to climb the pull-down ladder in the garage, I started out and ended up cuss'n it.  And then one …
  • That was one of the first things we considered, but it isn't designed to do what needs doing.  Thanks anyway. Spring "The Space Between 'A' and 'B' Is The Real Problem" Chicken
  • Hotch said: @Spring Chicken Send @RRP a PM and see if he has a seal or gasket for it! Now you're cookn'... LOL  At least mine won't need to withstand 'turbo' temperatures...
  • Photo Egg said: td66snrf said: Your idea is genius and well engineered. My concern would be would be in violation of  UBC, UFC and NFPA. You cannot have any air gap into your attic from your garage. You might want to look into intumesc…
  • GregW said: Sweet setup. I had a family friend who built a passenger elevator in his home using an electric hoist. It worked perfectly and utilized switches to stop it in the proper position, it was an engineering marvel. It really looked and f…
  • It's amazing how many ways there are of using this idea.  I just received this one found on Pinterest.  I could easily see "stacking" as yet another way of dealing with a space issue in your garage.  Like this for example:   Perhaps one of you bik…
  • lkapigian said: Those things have their ups and downs There's a way to make 'em go sideways too.  Just mount the hoist on a rail.  Once the load is lifted up, it can now be moved to the side for placement.  I'm not sure I can make mine …
  • Kcheves said: Neat idea. Q: When you cut the attic joists to create the opening in the garage ceiling, did you tie those back into the adjacent joists?  It was hard to see in the video, but it looked like you might not have. Yes.  It …
  • slovelad said: I like it! My own concern is the harbor freight winch. Would like to see it have some type of fail safe in the event the motor gives out or breaks. (That’s the way I think as a lawyer) but otherwise, you might seriously be on to …
  • buzzvol said: MBW suprised me on my birthday with a LBGE.  Then I over cooked steaks. Ha... I think everyone did that.  I lived in Spring Texas and I toasted my chicken breast.  Hence the BGE Handle, Spring Chicken.  It stuck, much like …

  • pgprescott said: Did that beauty have the old school hinge? The scissors type? Cool! Yes to the scissors-hinges, but also a ceramic grate.  I also had to buy the thermometer.  They did give me a bag of BGE Lump.  The Egg developed a stre…
  • As most of you know by now, The Coop is no more.  The structure is still there, but most of the Chicken Ranch items, including all but two of the 'Girls' are gone.  The new owners were left with two Eggs so they could start out as Eggheads. For tho…
  • With us now living just across the lake, it will be hard to turn down your invitation.  By all reports, you guys have a lot of fun.  We like fun.  We'll add it to our calendar and hope for the best. Spring "Close To Home" Chicken Covington Louisian…
  • Like most men who are overweight and under-exercised, I had back pain, and it was progressively getting worse.  Cortisone injections helped immediately, but gradually wore off, so I asked about surgical intervention.  It was my choice, of course, be…

  • I just read where you were having a birthday.  I suppose it's a lot better than Not having a birthday.  But I've never tested the other option.  And don't let that nagging thought about being a year closer to the end get you down.  Just relax, have …
  • Thanks.  But it's not hard to do.  Just smile and say "Hi."  Or, sometimes when Judy is shopping and I'm bored, I'll go stand at the entrance to the store and say "Welcome to Walmart" to everyone who enters, and maybe "Thank you for shopping at Walm…
  • CtTOPGUN said:  A little common ground is a great conversation starter. And once conversation gets going we usually find we have a lot more in common than we have differences. You're right, and such conversations can happen anywhere, in …

  • Stormbringer said: Nice one. This has probably been asked elsewhere, are you building another coop? Thanks.  The Coop, as you well know, was a product of the Chicken Ranch, which was the product of an active imagination supported by one …
  • When we just want a quick pizza lunch, we use burrito tortillas.  Two with cheese between them, then the regular stuff on top.  It's easy, fast and better than a lot of pizza's we've eaten in restaurants.  I made this video about a year ago to show …
  • And if you need another excuse to buy one and become the 'Cool Dude' of your cooking club, make a pizza on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3f8a2x8efs And if you still can't get over that decision hump, think about baking bread on it.  REALLY …
