  1. Someone just posted one for sale here locally. $475 with the table and everything. Says used once. Worth that? If it's a vision/brinkman, can't you buy those for $600-700 new?
  2. I've got two 8 lbs pork butts getting ready to come off to rest. They went on at midnight.
  3. On the topic of bacon, any of you guys ever try those high end special bacons? I bought about 5 different flavors from Bespoke Bacon. It's a whole new world of bacon. I did not care for the Caribbean jerk flavor, but I still ate it. Everything else was phenomenal. But I agree, you can really ruin a good piece of bacon by putting it on some of these strange concoctions.
  4. I do Babybacks 2-1-1 @250-275-300. Mainly because my temps creep from opening to wrap and glaze, but I also find the sauce glazes better at a higher temp. Personal preference though.
  5. Also of note, a weber 22.5 kettle grill fits a 55 gal drum perfectly. I'm building one of these now. Weber lid allows me an extra cooking level. I also use the ball valves on a pipe, but I add a 90° elbow at the top to keep water out if it's raining. The valves can go at ground level, but I too am lazy. Plans are nice guides, but it's fun to use your own ideas in the build.
  6. I use a bbq guru digiQ dx2 on my Akorn, mainly because I mostly cook overnight. I sleepy way better now when I have a cook going.
  7. Tuesday I bought butts for 2.49/lb they're usually 1.79. Baby backs are usually 2.99/lb, they were 3.89 this week on sale! Gettin expensive to eat well.
  8. I'm going to pick one up tomorrow. Was waiting for it to go under $100
  9. Bbqwizard, I like guy's Carolina #6 a lot. Haven't tried the others. But that Carolina sauce is the best bottled Carolina style I can find in my area and it's on par with many I've tried in the south.
  10. Mine sticks from grease build up from the previous cooks when it's cold, but any heat it moves freely, you may have a piece with bad fitment if it's sticking while hot.
  11. I agree with toe, that recipe has got to be close, I never would have guessed vanilla though, interesting.
  12. I bought some last night, great price.
  13. Blues Hog is good, not spectacular but I do enjoy it and keep a jar on hand. Bone suckin sauce is the wife's favorite (no pun intended) too much apple cider vinegar flavor for me, but I have a jar of bone suckin spicy that I have yet to try. Dinosaur Sensuous Slathering Sauce is by FAR my favorite.
  14. Was at HD last night, they had pallets of the red 17lbs bag. $12 though. They had a lot of other RO products as well. Menards (also there last night) also has many types of RO products.
  15. My wife just upgraded her phone with Verizon, they have a plan where you basically finance the phone similar to ATT next plan. Those plans are a rip off overall. More money in their pocket. If you want the newest phone all the time you should get that plan , but if you take care of your phone the 2 year contract is cheaper at renewal and cheaper per month. The catch they get you on is if you do a family plan on the "finance a phone" plan, the more lines you add/share the bigger discount per month. Bottom line, 2 year regular deal, you still are better off. Ask lots of questions, if not they're selling you the plan that makes them the most money. I agree with the OP though, family plans have gotten way cheaper (even on 2 year deals) and they won't lower your price unless you ask. Anyone with a plan that's a year or more old, can probably get it lowered just by calling and asking.
