    If a chick-fil-a type family was running an ISP....
    This is a terrible example and barely a possibility.  But even if it were to happen, literally nothing is stopping you from going one more line down the list of ISPs and choose the Larry Flint type provider. 
    It is an unsavory example, but not out of the realm of possibility, unless you are suggesting that families with strong religious convictions are unable to start an ISP business. Most people don't have but one or two ISPs offering service to their homes.

     Therein lies the problem.  I only have one, and its via microwave.  Expensive.
  • Re: Newbie help for Xmas Whole beef tenderloin on BGE

    One other thing to consider is your choice of wood for the smoke.  I find Mesquite to be to strong for a low and slow. I find it creates a strong bitter flavor.  Everybody is different but for that kind of money and your guests you may want to consider something like oak.

    I just use a bread knife for chicken.
  • Re: Need advice on Tri Tip

    Reverse sear works, but I seem to have better luck by doing a traditional sear/roast.  I get the egg up to 500 and sear each side for 5 minutes.  Pull the tritip and throw in the plate setter which will drop the temperature and I shoot for 350.  Roast the tritip @350 for about 30 minutes or until desired temp.  Works every time.  I live in Cali so have been cooking tritip for years. No marinading, no sauce, just a good rub.
  • Re: This has never happened before

    Agree with the hing bolts.  Recently my lid was high on the right side ( standing in front of the egg), but fine on the left side.  I carefully loosened and tightened the hinge bolts till I got it sitting flat all the way around.  At one point I tightened the hinge screws to much and my egg wouldn't open!  That was nerve racking.
