    I mixed some Makers Mark 46 and coke last night, tasted horrible to me. Better in the rocks imo.

    Just looked at the Emeril one, it is made by T-fal and has the EZ clean feature (oil container under the fryer that you can drain and store). I didn't have that model, I had a T-fal EZ Clean 3.5L. Basically the same thing, but larger and Emeril's name not slapped on it. I'm glad your brother's works properly, from reading the reviews on both, those are money for the peeps that got a good one. I went back and ordered an Oster, since that is what we had before and it worked fine for almost a decade. Then oil started leaking out the bottom where a screw/bolt was. So we trashed it. Hoping that simple will work great and last another decade. That T-fal was over $100, the Oster was only $40.

    Im pretty sure that I had the one your bro did. T-fal ez clean. Lucky for him he didn’t get a lemon like I did.

    We leave the oil in the fryer. Usually change it out after 8-10 cooking sessions (each session could be one basket of wings or five different batches, batch of onion rings, etc.). Some people will use a funnel and pour the oil (after it cools down of course) back into the containers it came in. We don't see the point in that though. As far as heating up, it will depend on the unit and how much oil it holds. Most of the larger ones (not large as in big enough for a 20 lb turkey) hold right under one gallon of oil. Id say on average for heating it to max temps (375 degrees) probably 10-15 minutes. And after say each batch in a cooking session, if lucky on getting a good one, probably a few mins to heat back up to max temp (as the temps are going to drop with the lid open) to get ready for the next batch.

    LOL, use in moderation broski I probably eat fried foods (mostly chicken wings) once a week. At most (unless it's during vacation or the NCAA tourny rounds 1-2 when I take off work) twice a week. Figured it would save money getting one again, especially for chicken fingers for our daughter and making homemade wings. Come spring, I'll be grilling out all the time anyhow.

    Found out Target sells a newer model of my old deep fryer. Oster Deep Fryer Looks exactly the same. Simple and easy to use. I remember I walked into a Best Buy (of all places) and bought my original one over 10 years ago. Wife gave me the stink eye, but I don't give two ****s. $39 and it worked like a charm for almost a decade. Edit: we actually had a smaller one than that one, oh well. **** it, instead of cooking 10 wings, I'll cook 20 at a time.

    There are articles out there that claim Miller was not HOF worthy. Basically pointing out similar stuff to what Steve did. The bigger fuss about him not getting in first ballot was more about who got in over him that year. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1081043-reggie-miller-is-not-hall-of-fame-worthy https://offthedribble.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/02/20/weighing-reggie-millers-hall-of-fame-credentials/

    Can see the commercials now........."Herpes IPA, spread the love."

    My problem with IPAs, besides my personal dislike in the taste of most of them, is that the market got flooded with them. It became a hipster thing (not calling you one) and all these microbreweries started popping up all over the place and the college hipsters flocked to them to drink IPAs, then it spread like herpes in a whore house and infected the majority of beer taps in restaurants, etc. Became an epidemic. You go into a restaurant now, they have say 12 taps for draft. It's usually bud light, miller lite, yuengling, 1 brown ale or porter, 1 girly blonde beer, then 7 IPAs. Long gone are the days of most places even carrying Guinness and Bass Ale on tap, or Harp Lager (was hard to find on tap back in the day). It sells, unfortunately, so I don't blame the businesses directly. I'm a lager, stout, porter, brown ale kinda guy along with the standard domestics (ML, BL, Yuengling). Just thinking back, it was glorious when there were very few IPAs out there, like Sierra Nevada IPA, which was a good beer.

    I've always thought Valentine's day was dumb, wife feels the same. Same with the prom, especially for ladies. Just two days where businesses take advantage of people to cash in. Flower shops, candy, hallmark.........prom = way too expensive dresses, hair done, nails done, etc. Guys got off easy cause they rented tuxes. I got sucked into four proms. My junior year, took one of my friends (our parents were best friends, she was a sophomore), my senior prom took my wife (who was a sophomore that year), then went the next two years with my wife. My wife didn't even want to go to her senior prom, I talked her into it cause of the whole "you'll regret it if you don't go to your sr. prom" bull**** nonsense. Looking back, I would have zero regrets (same with the wife) not going to any of them. That's also why I think high school reunions are pointless and would never go to one, my 25th is this year. I keep in touch with the people from high school that I like through Facebook, or hang out with them in person. I have no desire to go back and mingle with people I didn't hang with 25 years ago, or run into people I didn't like or who didn't like me wanting to act like everything is cool and we are best pals, etc. And no, I'm not a party pooper lol. For those that want to recognize Valentines day, it's cool, to each their own. Just not my thing. Edit: yes, my post is kinda all over the place First cup of coffee hasn't kicked in yet.

    So you stuck with the bow until this boss? What did you get it upgraded to? Planning on jumping in game and playing more over the week, I've gotten way behind.

    It's used, but not too much. He said that if I didn't take it, he was putting it on the street lol. If I had to guess, it's because he is retired and they go out to eat all the time. That and he probably didn't use it as much and my mom probably got onto him about it. I'm thinking it was an impulse buy for him. I really need to test it out, it's got a remote control to change settings, temp, timer, etc.
