  • Well ... I was a high school junior, and we were reviewing a story by J.D. Salinger entitled The Laughing Man. There was a character in the story named Omba, who was described as a lovable dwarf. The teacher pointed out to that class that if he w…
  • Ribhead, I like your style! Another whacko! And btw ... while I admire your patience, that virtue is highly over-rated. And what's that first cook going to be? Later, Peter
  • Write to Mike (LawnRanger) off his site: Have fun! Peter
  • FWIW ... I'd grab some chicken thighs for a first cook. It's hard to mess those up (but I could manage). I really messed up my first low and slow. Watching that temp dial all night was like being in the delivery room. Had so many by now that it's …
  • It shows nobility to be willing to increase your debt to a man to whom you already owe much. Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 B.C.) Smiling, Peter
  • Steven, Great to have met you and chatted. Thanks for everything ... really. Now it looks like you might need another egg? :laugh: I'll let you know when Pam's story is done. Later, Peter

  • Great stuff! Did you get the "But it's hot" warning? BTW ... The "sweet stuff" was just as good ... different (like kids), but it will be well worth the wait! Have fun, Peter PS > An Ocala case found it's home in my pantry as well. :…
  • Jay, It was really great to meet you. Thanks for all the smiles! And BTW ... Chocolate Nut Dream is very high on Pam's wish list! Thanks, Peter
  • Marc, We enjoyed your company immensely. And let's not forget ... Were it not for you, I'd still be waiting for my egg to cool! :laugh: Thanks again, Peter

  • Reelgem is a hottie! Peter
  • Yup!

  • Folks, Give me captions, and I'll post! Secondly, I've drunk way too much wine tonight. Peter
  • To sorta quote a line from Field of Dreams ... "If you build it, the eggs will come!" Smiles, Peter
  • Now that was funny! :laugh: And BTW ... I do agree. Sounds like a great salsa to me! Later, Peter
  • What about me? Come on! Peter
  • Looks really tasty! Thanks. Cooked directly on grid or in a grill pan? About 5-10 minutes total? Later, Peter
  • Folks, I do appreciate the feedback. Thanks to all for your input here. I get it now. BTW ... The thought of a silicone ABT is not all that appealing to me. What are the health benefits of adding silicone? :blink: See you there, Peter
  • Folks, Thanks for the advice and encouragement. I can see that my "go direct" conclusion was right. I especially liked the use of the spider. It now dawns on me how creative all you folks are. As for the Eggfest... Yes, I will be there. N…
  • You're going to love it! BTW ... there was a piezo (?) electronic igniter on mine that I torched on my first burn! Since then I must light manually. No big deal, but I was bummed about frying my piezo. In fact ... I was even thinking about ge…
  • Dealer info from Tonia: Eddie Skehan T&D Patio & Pool 2255 Parr Drive The Villiages, FL 32162 Phone: 352-748-3987 FWIW ... I had a conversation with Eddie last week. He is setting up a "store" at the Fest, but he recommended callin…
  • Gentlemen: It would be a great honor to add my palate to those already appointed. From my resume of experience: Humbled, Peter
  • Thanks, Mike. I realize that this is exactly what I did. the "effect" I wanted was boneless country ribs. But that might be like taking ground chick to get the "effect" of NY strip! At any rate ... Went to see the butcher again today. He tol…
  • Right! Got it! I was just surprised how quickly the temp went up. I had expected a 30-40 minute cook. As for the size ... my conclusion exactly. Thanks, Peter
  • See? I found conflicting advice which is probably because I am NOT a meat guru! I, too, found the low/slow, direct/indirect, confusion about this piece of pork. Roasting it like the rest of the loin was probably the smartest thing, but it's too la…
  • LMAO! And you're gonna love it! Just you wait. This, of course, assumes that you enjoyed jumping out of trees with loud yells in your youth, or you really enjoy a good fireworks show, or every once in a while you play air guitar with music blast…
  • Good question! Some people made fun of me: Later, Peter
  • Jazzman, I am no expert, but ... The 100% flour as a ratio makes no sense to me. I assume that means to use only AP flour. As for the other numbers ... Go here Plug in those percentages. …
  • Pato, Talk about a mountain of beef! I am curious ... Was there a taste-test winner in that bunch? Thanks, Peter
  • Don't you just LOVE the UPS truck? Now I'm jealouos and need to order something. Should it be practical? What do I need? Hmmm ... What do I WANT! Have fun, Peter
  • That sounds delicious! Going to give it a shot next week. Thanks, Peter
