    +1 on Jolt. You can't find it because they shut down in 2009. There' been a knock off on Amazon butthat seems to have disappeared too

    RC Cola is my favorite. I remember at the Mississippi State Fair there was always a RC cola tasting booth. The poor college students would ask whether we liked Coke or Pepsi better. Knowing that I liked RC better I'd pick one at random. They'd give me a glass of the random and a glass of RC both unlabeled. I'd tell 'em that the taste of Pepsi/Coke was better (cause I knew) and they'd give me another taste test to make sure. Good fun for a teenager anyway.

    My favorite was Jolt cola. But since I cannot find it I drink Pepsi but I will drink Coke too.

    I drink a ton of Diet Mt. Dew. Can't stand most "regular" sodas these days, taste way too sweet for me. I don't mind most of the diets, I'm used to the artificial sweetener taste. I put the pink stuff in my iced tea, as well, and actually prefer it to tea sweetened with sugar. I know it doesn't taste the same, but after 25+ years of drinking it that way, that is what iced tea is "supposed" to taste like, to me! lol

    Diet Coke. Can tell instantly when a place sells pepsi but doesn't tell you it's Pepsi when you've ordered Coke. (mild citrus is the fore palate and a different direction of artificial sweetness, coke has a more interesting array of flavors to parse.)

    I'm a bit of a super taster. What's kooky about coke is that the flavor profile is the same as it was when I was a kid. Pepsi has changed maybe three or four times since then. Not sure which is weirder.

    I worked for Movie Theaters ( 3 different ones in 3 different towns) for 17 years (starting out my Freshman year in College) 2 perks for working there the biggie was of course Free Movies!! (saved so much money for a broke college student) 2nd Free Drinks and Popcorn! Being in college I had afternoons off (last Class was always over by 12 noon!!) So I worked usually by myself (it was only a 4 screen when I was in Lubbock) I was the Ticket seller, Sold the concessions and Threaded up and started the movies! I got to talk to all the workmen that came in. So I got the Coke Guy to show me how to Brisk the different drinks! Being a big chain they always had us Lower the drink syrup and add more ice. We had a small Concession that we used during the Summertime and for Christmas break. Back when they really had block buster movies come out! I hid the tools for adjusting the drink syrup at that station and we all got our drinks from that one! So I really can tell the difference (even today 30 years later) between Coke and Pepsi (I have since given up Caffeine I can still get Coke and Dr Pepper in cans that are Caffeine free but never out in the real world) I really do miss that Sting of Fresh carbonated Coke (in a Glass full of ice!! I snuck it in to work we were suppose to use the 6oz cups yeah right) Fun Times but it enabled me to never grow up and turns out that is a bad thing???

    I was brought up on Diet soda (my mom was always on this diet or other) so the "weird" taste isn't weird to me. We make our own seltzer (20lb CO2 tank, not sodastream) and I have diet cola syrup I add if I'm wanting cola. Tried to make my own, that was a major fail.

    I liked diet coke with lime. Wondered what happened with it.

    its just the cold of the soda that probably makes you feel the jolt that why they (who ever the hell they are) say to drink something cold and walk around your vehicle if you are feeling sleepy when driving

    Just kidding. It's "too much information."

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


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.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages
