    Scary Stuff

    I fly a lot for work, like upwards of 150K miles per year and I consider myself to be a good flier in that there isn't much that happens in the air that fazes me (I actually slept through an emergency landing on the way to DFW and had to ask the flight attendant as I was deplaning where we were. Turns out Indianapolis) but this would have me crapping in my tighty whiteys!

          Saw this on the news this morning. Pretty crazy stuff.
          Back in '72, I was a kid, coming home from Germany we lost an engine and had to make an emergency landing in Ireland.
          Glad I was a kid. Probably would have craped myself if I was old enough to understand.

              So it looks like all damage was contained inside the engine housing. As it is supposed to be.

                I had to watch the video a few times to make sure that I didn't really see the gremlin from the classic Twilight Zone episode starring William Shatner - Nightmare at 20,000 Feet. :-)

                Wasn't it John Lithgow as the passenger in Twilight Zone....ends up shooting out the window and the Gremlin starts rubbing his face before it takes off of am I thinking of something else

                Just googled it: Shatner in the original, which I've never seen????
                and Lithgow in a re-make

              They landed here in Raleigh, so that video has been all over our local news this morning. Now if only it didn't take 4 days to take a train cross country....

                It looks to me like the main bearing on that turbo fan is about to catastrophically fail, and the guys filming it 6’ away? Ahh it would be to the back of the plane with my butt...

                  Actually wouldn't the front be better? I agree that fail previously killed a woman a few years ago.

                I wonder if it was filmed by William Shatner?

              If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

              Placeholder

              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

              Placeholder

              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

              Placeholder

              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

              Placeholder

              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!

              Placeholder

              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

              Placeholder

              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.

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

              Placeholder

              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.

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              Placeholder

              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.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

              Placeholder

              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'.

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

              Placeholder

              Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

              Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal.
