Just a tip to give your "Jet sleds", portys, or smitty built sleds the edge when pulling across that snowy ice. I used a product from my XC skis called Teflon Glide, that was in a little bottle you wiped on the glide portion of your skis. Putting it on my Shappell pop-down porty skis and bottom of my jet sled made a huge difference when pulling. Spray on silicone works well, too, but doesn't last very long. Make your pull easier! :)

That's a good tip. Another thing is making sure you have a straight rod at the end of you pull rope. Much easier to handle.

Do you use the teflon glide in lieu of ski wax?  or do you put it ontop of an existing layer of wax?

My skis were waxless, if that's what you were talking about. Was just put on the tip and glide path on tail. Otherwise, shack skis were done completely with Tef glide. Wax not needed or recommended with that.

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
