Pheasant can dry out very quickly, I have smoked it before with bacon wrap but don't think it lends itself to that very well. Better off with other suggestions that keep the meat in liquid base during cooking. ...

Only two QBs listed have less attempts per game. That indicates the coaches know what they have and it ain't pretty. That and they hope they can run for 300 yards per game.... ...

Maybe your superiors have a good idea of what your hours are and bonus appropriately. Making sick bank and expecting even higher equivalent bonus seems a bit ridiculous. You could go work for PIMCO, be asked to star...

That's what I was saying, works for country. Not a big country music fan, much less the junk they portray as country the past 5 years or so. Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, etc. Some country people used to actually write meaningful songs in that genre, just further stupidization of 'Merica exce...

[quote]There's no reason to have a battle round and a knockout round. They're essentially the same thing. I get the marketing behind it, but still. They should just do knockouts since nobody really wants to see/hear two people splitting lyrics the whole song...at least knockouts let them sing their ...

[quote]The Accord hybrid gets 47 combined. Counter-intuitively, it does better in the city than the highway, 50 MPG city / 45 MPG hwy.[/quote]
It makes perfect sense being the gas engine is the primary drive source at highway speeds, near all electric in-town.
The TDI's do get excellent mpg ...

Ryan - time for you to leave finally
CWB - steady performance. Hard to top what he did last week
Danica - she's so good it almost gets boring if that makes sense. Like it's too easy for her and I don't connect with what she is doing
Damien - another great performance. G...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Grading the Season - tirebiter on 12/2/14 at 12:42 pm|
I think C+, due to lack of ability to finish games and the lack of the passing game improvement. UF TD drop ended up huge in the difference between a 4 & 5 loss season. If the team had done anything offensively vs Arkie I would probably go with B, but that game was just unacceptable as was letting...

Who cares? How often does the award go to the best player in college football? Depending on effectiveness, I would rather 3 guys carry the load than 1 to keep them ready if the #1 goes down. Ask Todd Gurley about his supposed Heisman season and that was splitting carries and taking 4 games off for...

I have a Primo and over 7 years cooking on it, 3 with a forced air unit cooking with a completely closed exhaust vent and never had ash drifting onto the meat. Then again, I cook 95% of the time truly indirect, which does make me wonder if you are using the place setter or whatever BGE wants to cal...

I thought Matt was borderline awful. That song has been done so much better on the show, Javier was a zillion times better way back when.

Chris is tall with almost shaved head and sings some sort of "Caucasianized" R&B while Ryan is boy band poster child and sings music in that vein. Personally, I believe Chris has the much better voice of the two, just can't get into the tunes either does. ...

In the save Ryan was as bad as Jessie, with Sugar being moderately better than those two. Whatevs, they were all going home sooner than the others. The Sugar save over Elyjuh continues to be the biggest head scratcher, CWB over JD still appears to be strategic and not splitting the country vote be...
