Why is it that every season, I always pick up nails and etc. Its only the beginning of the season and I already have picked up some nice metal in the tire. At least it's copper. Maybe I can cash it in and get a new valve stem!

There are lots of stuff on the roads from the winter. No real way of getting around it i'm afraid. Unless a street sweeper helps you out, it's pretty much up to fate. Let me know what copper is going for now days. wink

yeah lots of stuff on the roads, its a good idea for all riders to give thier tires a look after each ride. Many times you can remove objects before they pierce the tire.

The thing that always makes me a little nervous is the sand left on the roads by the stop lights until they clean it up! The feet like to slide out when you stop and put them down at the stop signs. crazy

Thats a problem,here is another, Just when you think the roads are clean and dry, your out riding on a nice hot sunny day. You see these white strips of paper they put donn when the DOT patch's cracks, DO NOT RIDE ON THE ONES THAT GO STRAIGHT DOWN THE ROAD! Always try to cross them at 90 degree's They are more slippery then grease and will stick to a hot tire build up around it andstop you cold in your tracks in about 20 feet, For those of you that are new riders watch the road for these.

Here's even another one! When they go to replace the road, and grind the groves in it when they take up the top layer. That's always fun to feel yourself floating back and forth down that!! Like the big bridge on 94 by Monti! frown

Thats some hair raising stuff. I am also not a big fan of the layers of pavement, like on the on ramp when you merge.

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
