    BTW Huskee your poll has no correct option to select.

      It's more of a Puh sound than a Pee sound though.

      I have a wonderful assortment of temperature reading devices, like infrared, instant read, and stay in brands.... all are good and kept in calibration.

      I love beer guys... I can say I've tasted/sampled hundreds, maybe a thousand. I brew my own and love local Texas selections. Shiner has a wonderful selection of brews I like. There are many others in Texas worth putting to your lips. I drink what tastes good, no matter where it's brewed!

      I experiment with food on the grill/smoker and in the oven. I'm inspired with what I read. I love to show off with family & friends.

          • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

            <FACEPALM> My wife is from New York (I'm from AL) and she loves to annoy me by incorrectly pronouncing Pecan this way. In fact, that's why I have a clip of the video above... to prove to her how wrong she is

              If I'm referring to the nut I say pee-CON, if I'm referring to the pie, I say puh-CON pie, not pee-CON pie. I don't know I don't even like them or the pie. I just find these things interesting.

                One day you'll need to try some good ole fashioned Alabama Puh Kahn pie. It's one of my favorite holiday memories from childhood.

                  I always liked pecan pie. The substitution of maple syrup made me love it (which is handy, given the dozen pecan trees in my yard!).

                  Puh-CON pie is my favorite. I always get homemade pecan pie as my birthday cake. Had a girlfriend who used to make them for me with kahlua. Maple syrup sounds like a nice variation too.
