    Kabob BBQ

    We had planned to do a couple of fatties this weekend but the weather was so nice we ended up spending time away from home instead. But we found time for a quick Chicken Kabob BBQ this evening. Nothing crazy but still darn good. Everything was marinated in a Italian dressing...

    Dogs...What breed do you have and whats their name

    German Shepherd's for us. Right now we only have two. Kommandant Zeus and Fraulein Isis. Our kids were born with GSD's and have had them all their lives. I was born with them too and my mom raised them for most of her life as well. My wife has been a convert for over 20 years and loves them too...

    Wet Or Dry Wood?

    I filled the box with wet wood to the top. Shortly after water boiled out of the vents on the cover and dripped down onto the burner. It's not too much but still enough to notice. I'm assuming the water in the wood is boiling out and running onto the cover. I guess I could use less wood so it...

    Wet Or Dry Wood?

    I'm asking because I've tried both wet and dry wood. It seems the dry wood smokes better. We have a GOSM. The wood box is just a couple of inches above the burner and when water is in the box it usually spits, spatters and boils over. There's lots of steam but not much real smoke until the wood...

    Canning Beans

    Thanks guys. Meat Hunter, We've been canning for years with hot water baths but I've never tried pressure canning. I have a couple of Ball Blue books here someplace and will read up before we do it. I don't want to waste the beans by using the wrong method... It also sounds like your method is...

    Highly reccomended PC Security Program

    Hey Smokeguy, is that your hovercraft? I Have plans for a few smaller UH models and a Sevtec Explorer. As soon as I get the money and space I'm hoping to get underway on the Explorer. It would be sweet to use carbon fiber too but I doubt I'll be able to swing it... Jon.

    New in Michiagn

    Hey Steve. I'm a newbie here too but it's a pretty cool place. What area are you in? There's talk of a camp out/smoke out in Oakland county this July. I believe it's looking like Addison Oaks in the Lake Orion area... Jon.

    Canning Beans

    Anyone here do any bean canning? We were given a couple of bushels of fresh beans this week. They will go bad if we don't do something with them so I think we will can them. I'm not big on using pressure cookers and haven't used one since I was a kid (my dad loved his pressure cooker). So, we...

    Pounded Pork

    I'm not sure where to post this thread... This is a recipe we've been making for a while. Everyone loves it. It's basically pork loin cut into thin pieces then pounded. I'd say each piece is about 1/4" thick when done. Then it's fried in a pan with a little oil and a lot of butter or margarine...

    HVAC School. Good idea?

    Interesting thread. I'm a certified ASE Master. I learned the ropes from a guy I worked for as a teenager. Basically, he was a seasoned wrench and I learned from all of his mistakes. I did very well too. In recent years I've taken easier office/desk jobs. Getting older slows you down I guess...
