    ThermoPop Tale

    Did anyone else see the ThermoPop review on Amazon from the guy who stuck the ThermoPop in the turkey then stuck turkey in oven? Of course it melted, then exploded, ruining the turkey (and probably the oven). He claims there was no warning on box that this was NOT oven safe and Amazon is at fault for selling such inferior products! Are some really this stupid or is this just a ploy for a big buck lawsuit?? Unreal

    I thought that was the point of it being called and instant read. Yes, some people are dumb, but it's not their fault it's always someone else's isn't it. Like people suing tobacco companies when they get lung cancer...

      These are the same scientists that try to use a product for some purpose it is not intended for, and then give it a bad review.

      So, just for the record, I sue people for a living and we probably should agree to disagree about most of these issues, but I will say that, yes, some people really are that dumb. And it often IS their own fault, but not always. OK. I hope to never speak on these issues here again. I like being here too much to risk being thrown off. :-)

    Ya know, thinking back, we've had some fairly off the wall executions of MH's recipes. No one in The Pit, mind you, but there have been some interesting comments on the main site.

      I like the ones where people go: 'I made your [insert recipe here] except I didn't use the chili powder, or the beef stock, and i doubled the sugar, and I didn't have time to marinate it like you say, and i couldn't get my grill up to temp, and my family hates salt so i left it out and it tasted TERRIBLE, you really shouldn't put recipes on here until you test them'

      or

      'I don't have a grill or an oven, but I volunteered to cook thirty six briskets for little league. How would I do them on the engine of my truck?'

      You get the idea. Sometimes dumb seems contagious.

      While I usually read reviews or recommendations for products I plan to purchase, especially from this site, I intensely dislike recipe reviews because as Huskee points out, they didn't review THE RECIPE. But then, these are probably the same people who want to sue the scooter or roller skate companies 'cuz their kid crashed and skinned a knee. But he was wearing a HELMET! We need to let kids be kids again and learn from their own mistakes. Somehow my sister and I survived swimming in ditch water with water skippers, (the big river was off limits until we were older), climbing the hills, playing in caves, knowing rattlesnakes were around, bringing home coyote pups, riding neighbors loose horses bareback playing cowboy, not coming home 'til dark or we heard Mom call. Doubt my folks ever thought any wreck we ever had was anyone's fault but our own.

        Remember what Ron White says folks: You just can't fix stupid. A co-worker of mine has another one: you just can't coach that kind of talent. I just wish that all those times I spilled HOT coffee on myself going down the road that I would have known it wasn't MY fault! It was those nasty folks that sold me the coffee. I could have been rich....alas, now they warn you it's hot.....oh well.....

        When watching a slow motion train wreak or circular firing squad (usually just after the train wreak) at work, I just think to myself, "Not my circus. Not my monkeys."

        If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

        slow n sear
        The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

        the good one grill
        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

        Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

        Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

        Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
        The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use.

        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing.

        NK-22-Ck Grill
        Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees.
