  1. Electrical/fluorescent Light question

    New school instant start electronic lamps use a shot of high voltage to the the lamp going instead of the former filaments. Could be a capacitor in there.

    The person who would probably know the most used to and maybe still does post on the Vermilion section of as Great Outdoors if I recall correctly. I believe he runs a bait shop in Ely, MN. If anyone would know the status, he would.

    I was informed that those are not legal as bait in MN, have to have some sort of tag. Are they legal in Ontario? And what about getting them across the border?
  4. To all you purists, I agree. Sous Vide ribs are not BBQ although a post sous vide smoke can make them more like the ones you are used to. Liquid smoke is condensed actual smoke so it is the same flavor you get from wood. And of course there are people who are not in a position to run a smoker, or for whom the weather is unfavorable.. but might still want to fix some ribs. Also doing them sous vide is less labor intensive.
  5. I assume you immediately went outside and puked them up. Smoke flavor can be added with liquid smoke, made from actual smoke. And a smoke ring can come from a shot of pink salt.

    Turns out Pabst doesn't actually brew beer. It contracts it out to others. They are now headquartered in Los Angeles and actually produce no beer. However, ironically, they contract the production of Old Style to City Brewery in LaCrosse. City owns and operates the former G. Heilmann brewery. Interesting story.

    Who owns the schmidt brand nowdays? Didn;t Strohs own it for awhile? They still brew "extra special"?
  8. Just wondrring. Do the same thing, get different results.
  9. Could it have just been the particular slab had more or less collagen or something? Hog got more exercise?
  10. Do you foil them? 3-2-1 method is supposed to guarantee fall off the bone. Smoke 3 hours, wrap in foil and cook 2 more hours, unwrap and cook another hour. I have never done that myself but might next time.
  11. Sizzle and Heat Birdseed

    Yes, I think it's main purpose is squirrel deterence. Might also work for raccoons and deer.
  12. Question on a-maze-in smoker

    How about setting it on a couple of quarry tiles?
  13. Just Food and Drink

    My bad, indeed I mistakenly said purple when I should have said leech. Then purple replied and I didn't get why he was confused so replied to him again. Sorry.
  14. Supper

    I don't think he has a precision circulator or a water oven.
