                * - iGrill2 - 4 probes
                * - Favorite Beer - the cold one in my hand (craft beers of all flavors; haven't had a blue yummy in over 6 years) my tastes change with the season so it is difficult to name just a couple. However, I will occasionally have a vanilla porter float in the summer (Empyrean Vanilla Porter w/a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream) as I usually drink stouts & porters in the colder months, pale ales & IPAs in the warmer months. I have to add Not Your Father's Root Beer to beers I use for floats.
                * - Booze - I don't really have a favorite, but lean towards single malt Scotch & Irish whiskey
                * - Wines - Reds: mainly the heavy stuff mixed in with the occasional pinot noir ( I have yet to meet a malbec I didn't like); Whites: German & Nebraska (hey, I have to support the home team)
                * - Favorite Spice outlets - Frisco Spices in LaVista, NE (the local butcher supply shop); Volcanic Peppers in Bellevue, NE
                * - Current butchers: Just Good Meats & Fareway Foods

                Last week, I had a 5 draw Powerball ticket that had 3 prize winners. Yep, $4, $4, $7. Three winners, 15 bucks. Never count your chickens too soon.

                  That's actually a fair point. Your odds are better than the simple math shows when members don't claim their prize and there are redraws.

                      Huskee, do you think it's time to reconsider the automatic entries for members? Ending that would pretty much solve this problem. Or maybe the fear is that there would be too few entries that way?

                        The way to do it is to change the sweepstakes so that the winner must be a member from the moment they win until the moment they claim the prize (assuming it does not change the sweepstakes rules in a way that would require any sort of consent...)

                        Bumby, I believe that makes it a "pay to play" deal, which wouldn't be legal. And Huskee I don't see any way that members are staying on board just because of that small perk of automatic entry. This site is way more worthwhile than that.

                        I'm not a software geek, and this could be more complicated than I realize, but just add a button that members can use to enter.

                        Steve R. You may be right, you may be wrong, who knows....but it's one of those 'ain't broke don't fix it' things. Folks signed up knowing they'd get automatic entry if they're current at the end of the month (1159pm CT). I know, the active members want a better shot at winning, I get it but we have to play fair to all. And Bumby Steve R is correct, the contest end date is the previous month's last day, that determines their eligibility, not expiring after they win, they're still the winner.

                      Maybe the winner is taking his time researching his choice. It would be a tough choice for me between the Pellet smoker, Hasty Bake and the PK360.

                        Good point, and those are the 3 I would have to consider as well. I've also thought about the PBC and $500 knife set.

                        It was a tough choice...was between the pellet smoker and the Hasty Bake. PK 360 would have also been in the running if I hadn't (ironically enough) bought one a week-and-a-half ago. Love it and plan to take it for tailgating to some Florida State baseball games soon, but it is on the small side for larger parties. That is why I went with the Hasty Bake.

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

                    the good one grill

                    The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.
