Re: BBQ (and grilling) Thread

I have been cooking with a Weber 22 inch grill for over 20 years. Has anyone ever used this 3rd market smoker designed exactly for my grill? Looks so simple, but reviews are good. https://www.kettlepizza.com/product/smokenator-1000/ I have not. I smoke whole chickens on Weber Kettle instead of the ...

Re: BBQ (and grilling) Thread

I’ll join the choir. I’ve had my WSM 22” since 2015. One suggestion is that I would upgrade the charcoal door immediately to stainless steel. Made it much easier to control the temp on the low end. I like to smoke at about 225° and I find it invaluable.

Message from Patterson- February 12, 2021

Y’all, Greetings all ye Heathens. Hard to believe its all here and now and yet it’s so not. I don't think there are adequate words to express my (our) deep and bitter disappointment to not be in Athens right now, playing Rock and Roll for all of you. I miss my band, my family, my many friends in Ath...

Re: The New OK - 10/2/2020 (Vinyl 12/18)

Honestly no matter people’s political affiliation it cannot be denied that he is the reason so many songs from those three albums came about and were released. To me it’s calling it what it is. Years later he will forever be tagged to those albums and that time period. Just as they wanted those son...

If Go Go Boots was the country soul album, I’ve started to think of this one as their 1960s Atlantic Records/Stax/Muscle Shoals record.

I think you have a point with Sarah’s Flame, but it’s also historical as well as topical and it has great wordplay and a killer groove. The Perilous Night may not fare as well in a few years though despite being a great song. You never know.

Re: The New OK - 10/2/2020 (Vinyl 12/18)

The only overtly political songs on the album are Sarah’s Flame and, of course, The Perilous Night. The New OK and Watching the Orange Clouds are certainly socially co copy’s but I would not call them political as both sound deeply personal to these ears.

I suspect PH has spent a lot more time than we appreciate picking songs and sequencing them for this release. At least as to sequencing, Patterson has a well deserved reputation for the time, care and thought he puts into sequencing. If I try to take a stab at the feel of this album, it's warm nigh...

This is definitely a collection of B sides/left overs. Sea Island Lonely is one of my favorite Patterson songs in awhile. The 3 consecutive Patterson songs on the backside are all pretty solid. The front half is officially Neil Young “Monsanto Years” territory. I thought The Unraveling was pretty c...
