    Not a bad Father's Day haul

    So, I did pretty well this Father's Day. My sons (age 11 and 13) got me a 1 sq. foot plot of land in Scotland, which according to the paperwork, I can fish and hunt on my land and also claim the title of Lord. My daughter made me a candy basket. And, oh yeah, my wife bought me a RecTeq RT-700 AND a RT-B380 Bullseye. They're both sitting in boxes in my guest room right now until I get the time to put them together, which probably won't be until the weekend of the 4th. I'm super excited, though. My current pellet grill is a Oklahoma Joe Rider DLX, and I think the new one is going to be orders of magnitude better.

    Awesome! I have an RT-700. Absolutely love it! Be sure to go to the owners forum in addition to here. Lots of great info there.

      I was going to suggest a grill for the 1 sq ft plot, but, alas, the Smokey Joe is too large.

        But where will you stand while grilling on the chimney?

        I like how y'all think. Maybe I can make an treaty with the surrounding Lords that they can use my chimney starter "grill" if they also let me stand on their lands while using my grill. This is how world peace begins, gentlemen.

        You have an awesome family. I wonder if your wife took advantage of the Black Friday deal with the free Bullseye or was it some kind of super hot gas Rec Tec.

          She got it as part of a promotion that they're having now - $100 off the Bullseye if you buy the Bull or the BFG.

          Congrats on your new smoker! Great Fathers Day gift there from your wife. Be sure and post pics. Also….do we need to start addressing you as Lord Prepperjack? And should we bow when we see you, or will a simple curtsy suffice?

            I'm still working on the conventions and expectations - This was all thrust upon me quite suddenly. Once completed I'll be sure to send PDF copies to everyone.

          That is quite a haul you raked in, Lord prepperjack ! You are going to enjoy those Recteq cookers for sure. Great family and generous wife you have there! I would recommend hanging onto them!

                You may need a super long pole, too, if your land isn't close to the water.

                Won't work if he drinks like he's Scottish. He needs another plot right next to his.

              Years ago I used to listen to "Sgt. Preston of the Yukon" on the radio and later watch it on TV. At one time there was a promotion in which you got a small (1 square inch maybe) of land in the Yukon by sending in box tops from Quaker puffed cereal. I don't remember if I ever did it or not.

              BTW, the TV version was actually filmed around Aspen. The buildings were in a "town" near Aspen called Ashcroft. It's now a tourist attraction. Years ago, I cross country skied from Aspen to Ashcroft and had dinner at a restaurant there.

              Also, there is, or at least used to be, a kennel at Snowmass that housed descendants of the sled dogs used in the TV show.

                Yeah, I read something about that a few years ago. IIRC, it was Quaker Oats and they divided a piece of land they bought in the Yukon for $1,000. I think the all the deeds were made worthless (not that they were ever really worth anything) when the land company went defunct and the land reverted back to the Canadian government.

            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.
