    Retirement Curve Ball

    part B: Brian, a lot of the rules have changed since I contracted. At the time, a contractor you can put a good chunk of change in a SEP-IRA (self employment). I don't know what dollars they count, but this could be away to bring it down. Ask an accountant.

    Retirement Curve Ball

    Congratulations Brian. If you don't need the money, I'd pass. That said, an extra $24K less taxes would buy a nice introduction to retirement road trip. There are sites with dog approved hotels. Our dog got a bath at Petco while we went to the one place we wanted to go that wouldn't take him.

    Bacon Jam

    Obviously I want to make this too, but am a little challenged. 5 onions, a lot of shallots, (1/3 - 1/2 the volume of the onions?) * carmelized till brown, not burnt then chopped garlic for (I'm guessing a minute or so) till you can smell it. I think the garlic is the white hunks, so maybe 4...

    Maple bacon

    How Long Do Pellets Keep?

    I'm a newbie. I'm about 10 pork butts , 12 racks of ribs, some trout and salmon into smoking. I read on another thread about folks buying a lot of pellets when they come on sale. Assuming they are kept out of the sun in a dry spot, a garage or vented shed in my case, how long will they keep...

    My Traeger Mods...So Far

    I'm catching up with all of you. I finally put my Ortech TR100 and a box of fire bricks in my junior. It happily craddled 4 racks of ribs, in my rib racks. A lid gasket is next. Thank you for sharing all of your ideas and implementations.
