    The Grilling and Cooking Thread

    Props to @Skinsfan1311 for his brisket instructions. I've done 5 or 6 of them so far and I've even got Texans telling me it's the most moist tasty brisket they've ever had. The faux cambro is what really does it I think, along with immediate removal from the heat at 203 degrees. My latest experiment has been with raw pork belly. Made burnt ends with one and it was fabulous. Thinking about curing some bacon with the next one.

    What was the best vacation of your life

    Alaska and driving the AlCan in particular. The road trip of a lifetime. Surreal beauty for days on end.

    2018-19 NCAA Basketball Thread

    Sadly, very sadly for me not quite enough. We're so close to being legitimate (my Aggies). I'm crushed.
  4. Rewatching the Expanse in 4k. New TV (woo hoo). It really is a good show and worth the second go round. Picking up a few things I missed.

    2018-19 NCAA Basketball Thread

    My NMSU Aggies are on a historic run (for us). Always tough for a low-seeded mid-major when it comes to tourney time because we always have to get past someone exceptional (usually a one or two seed) to advance in the dance. I know we could beat a lot of 5-10 seeds. Hoping they can make it a few steps this year. https://www.lcsun-news.com/story/sports/2019/03/11/new-mexico-state-basketball-83-wins-three-years-midst-historic-run/3109385002/ My favorite side note is that UNM (the "big" school in NM) stole away our coach 3 years ago and they suck balls.

    Cutting the Cable cord

    I've found this guys newsletter and blogs to be very helpful in keeping up with the new services and the channels they're offering. https://www.techhive.com/article/3346020/cord-cutting-a-beginners-guide.html
  7. I was thinking he could sign my RG3 jersey? Seriously though, congrats @Burgold!
  8. To be fair to CB, it really wasn't their fault outside of, perhaps, the sort of clientele they attract. I have a close friend who's a lifer (middle management) and they actually treat her pretty well and her big boss (in El Paso) is a latina. Agree on the food, though I like their cod on fridays. I live in the desert and decent fish is hard to come by.
  9. The guy was downright polite to that lady. In this video (happened day before yesterday) the woman gives the ignant fool a heaping helping of the what for. He ****ed up and picked the wrong fiery latina. https://www.lcsun-news.com/story/news/2019/02/21/video-man-telling-el-pasoan-speak-english-cracker-barrel-goes-viral/2932196002/
  10. If you don't think New Mexico is rife with garden spots (many of which are indeed kept so by the efforts of immigrants), you've never been here. Please use right wing douchebaggie Arizona when you wish to cast these sorts of geographical aspersions.
  11. I don't want to have to see them. And besides, NM was a Union state (or territory as the case may be). AZ would snap 'em up.
  12. And furthermore, they believe it's our insidious plan to make it even more open because we hate America and want to be Venezuela. They can never explain why we want those foolish things, just that we must. I could be at the border in a hour taking pictures of big gnarly walls but also border that just has a couple rows of barbed wire fence. Both are appropriate for some areas. We have BP guys (on horseback even) out there where it's just barbed wire and surveillance balloons and motion sensors. Beef that stuff up, but the concept of a 30 foot wall out there becomes undeniably absurd when you actually go out there. These morons have no concept of how remote some of the border really is.
  13. FB got me laid, after a really bad health issue and a long, long dry spell. That's the only good thing it ever did for me...it was a pretty good thing though. The extent of my social media participation beyond that is ES (the first place I ever talked to a stranger online all those years ago) and one other anonymous forum where I can vent politically without repercussion. The generational attacks are cringe worthy for sure. There is not much I consider to be more vapid than those stupid memes about millennials. Do these jackwagons not realize that the boomers made the same stupid generalizations about us gen Xers? Is it a strange offshoot of tribalism? In your face examples of people who you like being unashamed jerks (to put it mildly) proved to be it's undoing for me. I don't want to know their views. The idea that politics and religion should not be discussed at the dinner table definitely needs to be expanded to social media. People feel amazingly free to be complete jerks in a way they never do in person. FB has been off my phone for more than a year and I don't check it that much lately at home.
