    My Other, Other Hobby "Have To See"

    I like the Marlin 60. I have the cheap "dime store" version, a 1972-vintage Glenfield Model 60 that I bought in a Rose's department store for, if I remember correctly, $35.00 If I had anywhere to shoot it I'd put a real scope on it. It's simple, reliable, and even looks pretty good since...

    All natural?

    The local Food Lion store advertised St. Louis cut spares for $2.49 per pound this week, so I went to the store to get some. I should have known better - in spite of "All Natural" on the label, there was also (in much smaller print) a note that the ribs were "enhanced" (or adulterated...

    Poor customer service with Rock's BBQ

    I too have an early Stoker (they tell me it is one of the first ten they ever built) and I recently attempted to update the firmware. My anti-virus software kicked in right in the middle of the process, "bricking" the Stoker. Rock's fixed it for their standard $12 upgrade fee, even though...

    Nice rack! (Well, somebody had to say it.) ;)

    My first post...picnic shoulder

    That really looks good. I have only cooked picnics a couple of times (when they were on sale for 99 cents/lb and butts were not). I may have to try that suggestion of cooking the skin - I was halfway tempted to try to make fried pork rinds with it, but didn't.

    BBQ NOOB first boston butt

    Wrapping in a towel would just add a little more insulation while it's resting in the cooler - there's nothing special about a towel. I have a mid-size Playmate cooler that will hold two cooked butts easily, and I normally wrap the butts in foil, put some newspaper inside the cooler (more...

    backyard moose

    I guess that trumps my colony of chipmunks.

    My baby boy!

    He'll be wanting his own smoker before you know it.

    Thinking of getting a smoker.

    This ^^ I've had one for several years and I really like it. I'm tempted, though, to try building a UDS.

    Pork butts 0.99 per lb, Food Lion

    Food Lion in the Winston-Salem, NC area has butts for 0.99 per pound. They are "enhanced" with 8% added pork broth (whatever that is (cough - water - cough)) but for that price I was willing to overlook it.

    Fricassée de Lapin

    That looks good. I may have to build a box trap and harvest a couple of those cottontails that live in the meadow behind my house. :D

    Electric Smokers

    I've had a WSM for several years, and rarely have to add coals for a 12-hour cook. No, it's not really set it and forget it, but it comes close. If you know somebody with a WSM, see if they'll let you borrow it to try cooking a couple of pork butts. That will give you a much better picture of...

    Pecan tree vs high winds at the inlaws house

    Sorry your in-laws lost such a nice tree, but I know you'll make the best of it. My sister-in-law has 4 or 5 pecan trees that look like they're a hundred years old, and they ain't going nowhere. And they never trim them, so I get nothing. :|

    What's cooking this weekend?

    Two pork butts, just rubbed down and ready for an overnight cook. One is rubbed with "Mystery Rub", which consists of the last of a batch of Wolfe Rub Original that wasn't enough for one butt, so I combined it with the remnants of several other rubs, and a few added ingredients, tasting as I...

    I saw a bottle of PeeDee River Swamp Sauce today...

    on the shelf in the office of a co-packer that my employer insures. So now I know where it comes from. No, I didn't shoplift it, though I was tempted. :mrgreen:

    It was a gift from my son, so I didn't question its pedigree. :mrgreen:

    Heard any good jokes lately?

    That's a variation on the old Calvin Coolidge joke: President Calvin Coolidge and his wife were at a government farm one day and were taken around on separate tours. Mrs. Coolidge, passing the chicken pens, inquired of a supervisor whether the lone rooster was sufficient, given the many hens in...

    Heard any good jokes lately?

    Here's one version: Brenda O'Malley is home making dinner as usual, when Tim Finnegan arrives at her door. "Brenda, may I come in?" he asks. "I've somethin' to tell ya." "Of course you can come in. You're always welcome, Tim. But where's my husband?" "That's what I'm here to be tellin' ya...

    WSM collects water

    Another trick is to turn the middle section upside down when you aren't using it. That way the bottom of the lid is on the outside of the middle section, and the bottom (actually the top) of the middle section is on the outside of the base. If the cover leaks (the seams are not waterproof)...

    My secret santa introduced me to these fine folks

    I hope you enjoy it! My daughter introduced me to the original, and I bought a variety (including a big bottle of the original for her) a couple of months ago.
