  1. @psychI checked my Amazon history and the servo I ordered shows as currently unavailable. (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D812NFS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1) I don't remember what the connection was like for the servo, but I don't think it was difficult. I do have a phone/ethernet wiring background, though. Once you get everything in hand, it will probably all make sense. If not, don't hesitate to reach out here, on the tvwbb, or PM me on here. There's no point in guessing or struggling through, there are plenty of people that can give you solid advice. If I remember, which has been a personal struggle of late, I will take a look at my damper to see what the wiring looked like to refresh my memory.
  2. Pretty much agree with all of the above. Looks like the HM you are getting has the Type K connector. I bought a thermocouple Type K connectors off of Amazon and made the connection myself. I use thermoworks probes and got the BBQ Guru plate. The micro damper wasn't around when I built mine, so I went with the roto damper and haven't had any issues with it. I had Ralph (over on the tvwbb site) print the roto damper and sliding case for me. I've since purchased a 3D printer and have printed some of these to hold my probes. They work great. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1962968

    How long to Sous Vide a roast?

    FWIW The Joule app shows temp/time setting for ribeye roast as low as 122 degrees. Time is anywhere from 3 - 6 hours (for fresh, not frozen) depending on the diameter of the roast (4 - 6 inches).

    Slowly getting back to normal. Cleared most of the debris from the yard. Got the tree off the storage building (a few dents in the metal roof), off of my car (totaled), and had two large pines cut down (both had broken at the top, but the broken parts were hung up). Replaced the mailbox post and bought a new car to replace my crushed one. Geico was quick to respond and take care of my car. Homeowners is through Travellers and they’ve not been nearly as responsive. The adjuster won’t be here for another week and a half. Not a huge deal since we didn’t have any critical damages. Internet, through Mediacom, is still at least a week away, probably two. They are saying up to 4-5 weeks is worst case.

    LOL Both the KK and the KJ made it. I wouldn't have buried that lede. We had to throw out all of the food in our fridges and freezers - except one pack of chicken breasts. It was buried down at the bottom and was still frozen solid. Those went on the KK one of the nights we were without power.

    Hey everyone. Still digging out. We got power back Monday. Internet will be down for weeks, they are saying mid November. I got the front yard cleared and most of the back. My debris pile is 90x8x6 and growing. Pecan orchards look like was zoned. A friend lost all 100 of their trees. The orchard near us looks like about 80% of the trees were uprooted. Grocery stores are are beginning to stock up. Schools will be closed at least through Tuesday, probably longer. Getting food to the schools is a big issue right now. Busses wont be able to get to many areas. A lot of roads have debris piled up 6’ high on both sides. It’s like driving down a bobsled track.

    We had a vacation already planed for this week. We decided to leave a day early to get out of town before the storm. We're still on vacation, but got some pictures from our neighbor. Our house looks undamaged but my car took a hit. Could have been much worse. There are about 5 or 6 trees down across our road, effectively blocking ingress or egress. @ckreef @skreef how did you guys fair? Anyone else in the path?

    Same OS, same difference. Open the photo, tap Edit, tap the magic wand, tap Save.
  10. That's what I was worried about. I stopped reading the books when they switched to being ghost written. I have a few flights coming up next week, so I loaded the Jack Ryan series on my ipad. I'll give it a shot. I liked season 1. I watched the first episode of season 2 and it 'felt' different. I don't know what it was, but it didn't hold my interest at all. I'll keep going, but it didn't make me excited to watch.
  11. I use the Serious Eats method. 2 oz balls, smash them super thin. Sometimes I use parchment, sometimes not. Hit them with S&P and give them 1 minute or less on the first side. I use a bench scraper to make sure I don't leave the crust behind. Flip, put cheese on one and stack the other on top then right to the bun. As they say in the recipe, have the buns ready to go. You go from raw meat to done in about 1:15 or so. If you aren't ready and have to leave them sit, they cool off extremely fast and aren't nearly as good. Technically, it's only seared on one side, but since there are 2 patties per serving, you get two seared sides. https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2014/03/ultra-smashed-cheeseburger-recipe-food-lab.html

    Buying that thing might put you on several different 'watch lists'.

    I've seen your skills - you could do it with your eyes closed. In fact, that's the next Challenge One of these days, I'll try to make some pork belly. I've eaten it three times and didn't like it - a texture thing. Maybe if I make it myself, I can get it to a texture that is palatable.
