          I feel your pain, mi hermano. I usually get the 'we are supposed to work together in the kitchen' lecture when it does. Like you, I find it easier to bide my time.

          It's funny, in the firehouse we all bob and weave and adjust to each other's moves and body language, and it all flows. My wife and I? Not so much. I'm in her way, she's in mine. a lot of "pardon me, excuse me, oops, etc." Funny (ish).

                4. Curious if my 76% off the cover price pay check is on the way from the guvment. Typically it is in the bank by Friday night (not this time). More than what many folks got if it comes through.

                  Sitting in a hospital room, holding my sleeping daughter who was born Friday, killing time by browsing the Pit until we are discharged sometime later today.

                  She wasn't supposed to be here until Wednesday, but she reached temp and was probe tender so we pulled her early.

                      It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it!

                      No fire at the moment, still at work, but Grateful Dead in the background doing "Not Fade Away" on "Closing of Winterland". Tough work, but somebody's got to do it!

Some companies pay a finder's fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product.

                  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 Undisputed Champion!

                  The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

                  Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                  Grilla pellet smoker
                  We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
