    Can we expand this grouping?

    Perhaps my previous post was worded wrong. I don't really feel left out, but it seems The title of the group is lacking for more topics than seemingly covered for the scroll by. You are right it needs more people building into it on topics every day. I will try to work on that as its one of my...

    Can we expand this grouping?

    Here at SMF, I have found some of the best minds on the web discussing some of, if not the best food topics today. I feel we are missing something. The beer and ale subgroup leaves out guys like me that make wine, cider, and also filtering that dirty water out of my alcohol thru means of...

    The beautiful thing about oil seals is that they are pretty standard for older electric motors. I have a local branch called Bearing Distributors Inc that can identify the worst of seals and bearings I have brought them.

    A message to all from one who gave all for us.

    Which of you men, if you had one hundred sheep, and lost one of them, wouldn't leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one that was lost, until he found it? This is one of the most important questions ever asked. There was a gift given to each of us the first Christmas. It was...

    What’s Your Avatar?

    A smoker I built from a subway cabinet.... I used stainless serving pan covers with holes bored into the low point for drainage into the steam pan. Built it for a friends funeral dinner. Propane powered and can hold a lot of chicken legs.

    May I say IMO....... that something of this nature can not be properly re-heated and should be cooked and served fresh. I know its rough to plan the cook, get up early, and execute it for fresh serve is a daunting task. Proper planning like prepping the loin and stuffing it the day before...
