    Refrigerator brands and longevity

    Well, I spoke too soon a year or two ago.... The Samsung french door refrigerator we bought 5 years is officially on it's way out the door, due to Samsung's designs and design failures. Short story is that the icemaker is still frosting over, and the refrigerator compartment circulation fan is...

    Threads with posts by me?

    I seem to recall under vBulletin that threads I've posted in had an indicator near the thread title. I don't see that under Xenforo. Am I missing something obvious?

    Dirty power ?

    So, my g/f & I loaded up the truck, trailer & monster and headed north this weekend. A long time friend of ours, her son is graduating culinary arts school. We hatched out the idea of smoking for his graduation party several months ago, and here we are. 2 packer briskets, 2 pork butts and a...

    Yet another power supply question

    In spite of having built the pocket in my smoker as wide as I could, it's a very tight fit with an inline barrel power connector. A right angle connector would make for a nice comfortable fit. I have a 1A supply with a right angle connector, but it just plain just doesn't deliver enough power...

    Brisket

    Made this last weekend. Went in the pit at 9:00 PM at 225 degrees F on Rockwood lump charcoal, came out at 5:00 PM, rested for 90 minutes prior to slicing. I really had help with the pic, the gent who shot it works magazine production. Bet he could make anybody's look good.

    Bosch dishwashers

    This might be a little out of scope for the forum. If it is, feel free to remove it. https://boschdishpowercord.com/ There are more now that are covered, something more than 633,000 units affected. I found out last night at a party about this recall. I haven't been notified by Bosch, and...

    Wpa2 - krack

    Without getting into all of the nerdy details.... some rather serious down 'n dirty details about a WPA2 vulnerability are now out there. In short, WPA2 is *NOT* secure, at least nowhere near as secure as previously thought. Update your access point's firmware as soon as your vendor has a...

    Fresh/green Ham?

    I've got a fairly large (18-20 lbs.) fresh/green ham from one of my coworkers (semi-heritage breed, don't recall which.) At the moment, it's hard frozen in the deep freeze. In 2 weeks, we're having an office potluck/smorgasbord. My intent is to smoke the day before, although (from another post,)...

    Thoughts & advice....

    I have an Oklahoma Joe style horizontal smoker. I assembled a 4.2.4 HeaterMeter a couple of months ago, with a Tom Kole barrel server V2 with the requisite 60mm 10CFM blower. I've ran a couple of smokes, and I'm a bit confused by some behavior. Last weekend, in particular, I smoke a whole...

    Horizontal offset smoker - mount for Tom Kole's barrel assembly V2

    I finally got all of the bits together for a HeaterMeter, and Tom Kole's V2 barrel assembly. I have a [leaky] Brinkmann horizontal offset straight through smoker. I looked over a bunch of threads, and an idle walk through the plumbing aisle yielded some inspiration. While John Wells at...
