Re: MARGO & HAROLD

Well, there was no "Gimp", but sounds terrifying enough. Back in my teens I used to hang out with some people who owned some pretty dangerous hand-guns ('44 Magnums etc.) and they loved having them laying around in the basement where we would be drinking to get in mood for the weekend's shenanigans....

So what do y'all think happened on that night with Margo so long ago and why is he worried about how much Harold knows? Good question, Clams!

Have been into SV for a while, but came back to grilling, roasting, pan-searing etc eventually. I find in most cases I am able to get close to SV result in terms of even "doneness" through the meat using "reverse sear" method on roasts and larger cuts of meat and with a good thermometer (thermapen) ...

Re: BBQ (and grilling) Thread

We got a pellet grill last summer and it's one of the best purchases I've ever made. It kicks ass for either smoking or grilling and it's mostly idiot proof. Which make?

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. I have considered ordering one of those. The ...

The Weber Smoker is worth every penny and that sounds about right. Been having mine for a year now. Super happy. Result always turns out great. Been doing w...

Re: Where will first DBT show be when things open again?

Barring some kind of miraculous speed up of vaccination in Europe, those first shows back definitely won't be over here. Full capacity shows here aren't allowed until 21 June (at the earliest), though socially distanced gigs can happen before. I'd certainly hope all of the DBT shows have sold too w...

Pitchfork has Mercury Rev Yerself Is Steam on their list of top 50 Shoegaze albums. Never thought of them as Shoegaze before. I have to admit I am familiar with very few of the albums on that list.

Agree with all three points and you can remove the "probably" and "possibly" for me.
I like to keep things open. Never sure about my own judgment. ;)
