  • Re: Curious-how many forum participants also routinely enter sanctioned Q competitions?

    Why would I want to compete? Most pro's will say in a heartbeat that competion Q has nothing to do with backyard, great tasting, Q.
    I spend my time trying to please my family and friends with Q done the way we like it.
    OTOH: Attending the competitions is a lot of fun. Talking with the competitors and getting some new ideas is always interesting.

    I've got my 40 loaded up with 24 bud light cans, 18 bottles and 20lb of ice. (lid wouldn't close at first.) Now it's all sealed up! I'll get pics in a second, but that's what I got it to hold. It's also sitting on hot asphault in South MS where it's been in the upper 80s and humid as heck all day today. I did not pre cool it, but it was in A/C when I first loaded it. (the beer wasn't super cold either straight out of one of those open grocery beer isle cooler things)
    And did you need a hernia operation after lifting it??

    Nice ride!
    If you don't have a winch, get one before you go in the mud. If you get that stuck, you WILL need a winch to get it out. SxS's are heavy. I'll stick with my Grizzly for now.
    The definition of a 4 wheel drive vehicle is:
    It's simply a vehicle that will get you stuck deeper in the woods than a 2 wheel drive! :o
  • Re: Fried Chicken - stumbled on to something - OT

    We remodeled the kithchen several years ago. We had a standard electric oven/range but I've never liked them. I was raised on gas and gas was usually available during my years stationed in the west. There's no natural gas where I now live and I didn't want the hassle of installing a propane tank and plumbing so I did a little research.
    We decided on an oven with an induction rangetop and couldn't be happier. Ours doesn't set temp by degrees like the little portable ones but it works fantastic. Bringing a stock pot of water to a boil is way faster than gas or electric and the temps are far easier to adjust. The change is almost instant. We even put a paper towel between the cast iron skillets and glass rangetop so there's no scratching the glass. High settings might scorch the towel a little but nothing to be concerned with.
    We'll never go back to another electric range and will soon be getting a couple of the portable induction rangetops for the camper.
    The only potential downside would be if you have a bunch of pots and pans that are made of a non-ferrous material. Just carry a small magnet while shopping for additional pots and pans.

    I, and many my age, were supposed to be dead many years ago according to all the "safety" experts!
    They are the reason so many idiots are still alive and allowed to breed.
