    No, but you have me intrigued.

    Gas Grill

    Oh, not sure what the consensus of the crowd is here, but the next gas grill I buy won't have a side burner. I thought it would be a neat feature and paid a little extra for the model that had it, but after or or two uses the burner never worked right. At least this one has a lid on it, so I can still use that side of the grill to set stuff on, but I found it basically to be a waste of money.

    Gas Grill

    I don't know how new the "newer" ones are, but mine is 7 years old. It's pretty decent, but not as solid as some of the older models I've used. I haven't had to replace any components yet, but I'm fairly certain I can find replacement grates, flavorizing bars, etc at most retail stores that sell Weber grills, and I know I can find them on Amazon. I also have a Weber charcoal grill, so my gas grill doesn't get used as much as some might use theirs. If I were to ask a few of my buddies, they would say they only grill you should ever buy is a Big Green Egg. Not a gas grill, and while they seem to work great, they are certainly expensive.

    Gas Grill

    I bought a 3-burner Weber Spirit 7 years ago. It has porcelain coated grates. One of bars on the grate broke at the weld a few years ago, but as long as I don't pick it up from that spot it doesn't cause a problem. The "flavorizing" bars are starting to have a few small holes forming in them, but again, no big deal to me. Overall I've been very happy with the Weber. However, it was a wedding gift from my buddies (a group of us used to go in on a nice grill when someone got married) so I didn't have to cough up my own dough for it.

    Hank Shaw’s Take On Sous Vide

    Fantastic grilled cheese too.
  6. Nobody wants to see my man tiddies. But maybe showing them would result in HSO sending me a hoodie to cover them up?
  7. This got me curious, so I checked my profile and sure enough, I'm coming up on 10 years myself on 12/30. However, over those 10 years I've posted WAY less topless selfies than Leech has!

    Upper Red - What Am I Doing Wrong?

    As Leech said, I would contact Johnny P with Red Lake Remotes. He used to post a lot on this site and seemed to know the lake like the back of his hand. He started a few years ago with just portable houses in order to go "remote" but now has sleeper houses.
  9. Alright ladies and gentleman, Xmas is almost here and I've been assigned the job of cooking a prime rib. I am considering doing it either in my smoker (electric) or the rotisserie on my gas grill. I have never done a prime rib either of these ways - and would like some opinions from those that have on which is the better/best way. I haven't used my smoker in the middle of winter, so I know I would need to test it before hand to make sure it can maintain a temp in the cold - but let's just assume it does. For what it's worth, here are some other details: Boneless Size - I'm not entirely sure, but probably 6-8 lbs (the rotisserie has a 10lb limit) 3 kids will be eating it. I only mention that because sometimes kids don't like a heavy smoked flavor. Thoughts?
  10. Way off topic, but who would have guessed Joe Rogan is such a Renaissance Man? I still remember him from the News Radio sitcom, but I also just watched a few of his stand-up routines, and I know he's involved UFC. I didn't know he did podcasts that covered such broad topics.
  11. I realize that. I highly doubt many people really know that much about CWD (I certainly don't) - but some have gotten very good at perfecting their arguments for or against doing anything to further prevent the spread. It's also a bit eye opening to learn who is behind some of the social media groups. For example, the MN Deer Density Initiative, which originally started out with a fairly simple message that our deer herd was too low and hunters shouldn't shoot does, to in my opinion becoming more of a conspiracy theory group that thinks the DNR is out to destroy the herd (and lately seems to get its kicks from ridiculing anyone or any group that goes along with the DNRs plan). Brooks Johnson was one of the founders of MDDI, and it was interesting to me to recently learn that he is a deer farmer. Brooks is/was also very involved with the MN Bow Hunters Associations. So it gives you a different perspective when you read those two group's Facebook posts about CWD.
  12. If CWD was that easy to spread, wouldn't it pretty much cover the whole state, if not most of North America, by now? IMHO, the battle against invasive species has been lost due to a combination of ignorance, indifference or laziness by boat owners. Most of the spread could have been prevented, but that's a whole other ball of wax.

    Hunting Shack Ideas

    For what it's worth, our shack was built on skids - railroad ties actually I believe - the guys used whatever they could find at the time. The shack had to be moved once, and it's nearly 30 years old now. But either from the move or rotting, the floor has buckled pretty good in a few places - not much is level in our shack. It only gets used a few weekends a year during deer hunting so no big deal to us.
