    Help I'm confused?

    So no company or family for Thanksgiving but it's okay to go shopping on black Friday elbows to elbows?

    We're one step away from a total lock down up here in the GTA so its back to curb side pick ups or delivery.
    Remember the sales taxes reaped and big business profits trump health, safety and welfare every day of the week and twice on weekends.
    And yes, I am extremely cynical.

    Allowed or not, you won't see me there. Then again, you wouldn't see me there even without a pandemic.

      Obviously the two activities carry vastly different levels of risk. That said I won't be shopping at any stores and I'll be having Thanksgiving in my backyard with a total of 4 people. I'm going to build a big 🔥 and make the best of it. This is just one year. This shall pass and next year will be better.

        I already shopped. I ordered a chipper/shredder on Monday. While talking to the vendor, my wife said I should wait until Friday in case they had a sale. Vendor got a big laugh out of that, she said because of the pandemic they are having problems getting stock in and they don't have much inventory. I'm getting the chipper next week only because another vendor in Oregon had one sitting in inventory, otherwise it might have been months before they could get one from the manufacturer.

          HawkerXP No, I'm going to restructure the apple orchard and switch over to a holistic practice. 'Ramial' wood chips is very beneficial, so I got it to produce them. Comes with a shredder as well, so leaves can be mulched faster.

        I hate crowds, and generally limit my shopping to food only this time of year for in person stuff anyway... to the point that I will rarely go to places like WalMart or Sams where they sell more than food just to reduce the chance of being in a crowd.

            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.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            Grilla pellet smoker

Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

            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.

            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.
