re: Electric smokers -- anybody got one? - Slippy on 7/25/16 at 6:43 pm
Thanks for all the input. I don't have a ton of space and am leaning to the 30 inch over the 40. MasterBuilt makes a nice digital model for around $300. Will I have to cut every rack of ribs in half? Will I have to split a brisket? (Not that this would be all bad. More surface area to absorb...

Electric smokers -- anybody got one? - Slippy on 7/24/16 at 9:28 pm
I want a digital electric cabinet smoker that I can park on my patio and use a couple times a month. I like the idea of turning it on, throwing the meat in, and forgetting about it for hours. Are they any good? I know charcoal tastes better. But I'm all about minimal tending. ...

Theresa May is the new British Prime Minister. - Slippy on 7/11/16 at 9:34 am
She is possibly Thatcheresque. I like her a lot. She was quietly anti-Brexit but is now prepared to implement it. [img]http://senhorcabo.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Theresa-May.jpg[/img] [link=(http://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/688246/Tory-leadership-race-Andrea-Leadsom-quits-Theresa...

re: Public Colleges Chasing out of state students for money - Slippy on 7/8/16 at 2:45 pm
My son just graduated from Alabama. The reason Bama is 55% out of state students is because they have the most generous scholarship program in the United States of America. Most of the OOS students are high achievers on scholarship. A 32 ACT will get you full tuition for 4 years....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

The Brits are good at some stuff, lousy at others. - Slippy on 6/24/16 at 11:13 am
I caused the Brexit, y'all. I was in England for a week. Just got back home late last night after 20+ hours of travel and learned the result. Anyway, here are my impressions. Stuff the British do well: - mass transit (might be the thing they do best) - pubs and beer (love the cask ales) ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (15)

re: What would it take to get you to go to church? - Slippy on 6/2/16 at 10:21 am
You know why I am uncomfortable with this thread? Because people who have no faith or spiritual investment in church should not be there. Just stay home. Church attendance is an act of free will. People should go because they believe and want to be there, not because they are shamed by family me...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)
