                  I'll go with TMA. I don't understand why our engineers have to make incomprehensible acronyms for everything! I guess they value their memorization skills or some such crap. Why not just speak simply and clearly?

                  WAF: Wife Acceptance Factor. I came across this years ago when I was looking at a subwoofer for the family room. The reviews were great for the sound and power, but it was noted to have a very low WAF!

                  In the spirit of avoiding sexism, we could go for SAF: Spouse Acceptance Factor. But, then, what about SOAF: Significant Other Acceptance Factor............

                    I like Troutman 's high and low "hmmms". High hmmms promising, low hmmms not so promising.

                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.

                Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                NK-22-Ck Grill

                Their 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.
