  • AaronH said: My Go to- George Dickle #12     I think it beats the pants off jack black.  This is my go to also. A handle is $39.99 at total wine. Larceny is another good one but it's a couple dollars more per bottle. 
  • I have used it. I prefer royal oak over it because they are about the same quality and RO is cheaper. The BB is more dense and slower to light. Useable but not the best.
  • Yeah I really don't care just didn't want to disappoint.

  • Man I have been with the wife's family since Monday and they are non drinkers. Heading to my families in an hour and a half and stopping and filling the yeti with beers. I want a beer so bad.
  • I do smoked mashed potatoes every year. Red potatoes, parsnips. And onions pre boiled then roasted under the bird. Get a great smoked gravy and potatoes. Did them under a rack of pork this year to bring to Florida they are in the oven now.

  • I think bad. They have an off smell when they bloom.

  • I am watching for containers that I can fill and freeze on my own that will fit my cooler. The ice packs are fairly expensive for what they are don't really want to drop $60 on 2 of them. Also if I can find ones that leave small gaps around the edge…
  • I love my 50 as well it seemed more practical in the store. Never thought to use it to brine thanks for the tip.

  • Searching craigslist just found hover egg
  • The link might not have saved to the right one there were a couple boxes on the link the E17 new was the one I selected. It says 800 lumens which it's probably still only half that but for under $20 with a battery and charger it's hard to beat. My u…
  • You don't need to spend that kind of money that's crazy for those little flashlight. I have an ultra fire kinda like this that I got from merit line like 3 years ago that still works great and is really bright. My older model is bright enough that i…
  • I have my yeti in the back of the 4Runner right now. Mashed potatoes for thanksgiving and some other stuff for the baby. I have it in the rack up above all the ice so I don't have to worry about water getting in any of the food. Wonder why Rtic didn…

  • Thanks @Photo Egg . Overshot it by a couple degrees but still good. I cut both ends off and a neighbor and I stood in the garage and ate them with our hands. Sliced another for his wife and these were left for a picture.
  • SkySaw said: There was a similar discussion not too long ago. I learned that lo-and-slow is more for the cooker than the meat. Apparently stick burners are not very good at cooking hot and fast, as the ideal firebox environment for smoke prod…
  • Coming off in 5 minutes
  • Leaving for Florida tomorrow and I am bringing smoked mashed potatoes. Normally cook these under the bird but I'm not doing the bird so threw a rack of pork up there so at least there's some animal drippings in them. Rad potatoes and parsnips pre bo…
