  1. I've spent a good deal of time at the Mayo in Scottsdale. Best medical care, hands down and by a mile, I've received anywhere. It's a very strange story and I'd love to get more of the doctors take on it.

    I've seen the ban hammer phrase used many times. It was too good a setup to pass on since it was also Washington's catch phrase on Welcome Back, lol. I excel at entertaining myself.

    The whole hog...damn that sounds awful impressive! I've done them in the ground before, that's pretty common at metanzas around here. Burn a fire in a big pit on someone's farm all night while you drink beer. In the wee hours of the morning cut the hog in quarters, saving the longa or skin for chicharrones, then wrap in foil and wet gunny sacks put on top of the coals from the fire and bury it all day. By late afternoon when you dig it out it's sublime. Truly some of my best memories revolve around that.

    Looks pretty. Fixing to see how it tastes. Added: I nailed it this time. It was close to perfect. Even warmed up leftovers were still moist and tender.

    Ten bucks of dryer vent and I have the cold smoker attachment set up nice. Trying another brisket flat. Last one was a little dry so I'm using 220f vs 225 this time and pulling for the crutch at 190 instead of 195. It's no lie that they're tricky. What with the better temp regulation using the attachment I think it'll work.
  6. Man, I wish that USFL story ended with Donald getting his comeuppance but in fact, very depressingly, his ****ty behavior made him president. Wonder what Bassett's doing these days?
  7. See, I see it as condemnation of the RNC and the right in general. Dems ran a really weak candidate, the right could have put up anyone and won but they chose the Cheeto. Out of spite it seems.
  8. I remember being appalled at the money wheel moving faster than the gallon wheel at the pump.
  9. It seems to me that Newt Gingrich is who started the current round of really, really rancorous partisanship.

    I fess to using the crutch anytime I'm smoking shoulders or briskets. I don't do that 321 stuff tho. After 8 hours (unless it's a really, really big piece of meat and then longer) it's smoked but is usually stuck in the unpredictable stall. I wrap it and finish in the oven at 225 till it hits the high 190's. Pull it, remove the foil and let it sit in the hot oven for a 10-15 minutes to dry the outside a bit. Perfection in my humble opinion. You can count on the timing and nothing is lost in the process so far as a I can figure out. Ribs and small stuff don't need it, unless your wife says so...

    That would work well. I do like flipping it briefly to char the top a little and basket makes that easy.
