A friend of mine was the munitions specialist dispatched to disarm the bombs. He never mentioned any of it until after it was recently declassified.

[quote]yeah, they are very inefficient. Most heats goes up, a bit radiates down to the meat. Basically a conversation piece, that cooks very slowly. Nice on a cold day when you can cook, warm up by the fire, and get shitfaced. Kinda sucks in September when it is 100 degrees outside though.

Thanks for the responses. Cant dig a whole at our stadium so have to use some form of a pit/box for a pig.

I have an opportunity to get one "near" new for half the price. Not familiar with it so was looking for some input from the F&D Board. Cypress with steel pan lid. Any thoughts?

When they opened the Mobile location a few years ago, they ran out of ribs on Memorial Day before 5 pm. Not because they were so busy,but because they didnt plan for people wanting ribs on a holiday. Food was decent but nothing spectacular. I work across the street and never once went for lunch. ...

Depends on the restaurant. If you are at a lower end chain then the servers may not be smart enough to manage the input to keep your app and entrees from coming out together. Anywhere even semi upscale should be able to handle that and you should expect them to do it right. My wife has the same p...
