    Is Texas Monthly Worth It If You Don’t Live In Texas?

    Or is it more likely to make you jealous of our Texas members?

    It seems like the best stuff is highlighted here so maybe no need.

    Side note: I signed up for Milk Street emails last week. My god. Talk about the most spammy group ever. Multiple emails a day on recipes, podcasts, subscriptions etc. Maybe the content is good but talk about annoying. I can’t give them any money now.

    Dunno, MeatEater is the best email subscription I've ever had.

      Now look at what you done did. I will have to check out MeatEater. Been a while since I watched Steve dispatch and consume consumables.

      huh, I just watched 3 episodes on Netflix (or Prime) the other night after not having seen it in quite a while. Subscribed.

    No, it is not, unless it is. Try a free trial subscription if offered.
    Now if they have ads for PBR, will you get the idea.


      I felt same way about Milk Street. Could not handle the amount of emails they throw at you. This is the only place that emails me now. Well,I still get emails from Thermoworks. Other then that,I come here, or serious eats.


        Its worth it to me from the perspective that I`d never look for Texas Monthly on my own because I`m so darn forgetful but if a member on here posts something of interest at least I`ll see it.


          I get Texas Monthly, well monthly. Being a curmudgeon, I don’t always agree with them, but look forward to it each month. I’m about 3 months behind on reading them, but winter is coming. The one I just finished was about Bass Reeves. He was an incredible law man.


            Well, it’s mostly about Texas (duh), Texas people, Texas places, Texas issues. But, it does boast some good writing,some humor, and occasionally some nice recipes. Lots of upscale adverts, etc. You can get the bbq ratings elsewhere.


              Depending how plugged into the Apple product line, Texas Monthly is included in Apple News, among a few others like Cooks Country, Bon Appetite and National Geographic



                Read the website for awhile. Bookmark it so it's easy. https://www.texasmonthly.com

                That's what they cover, so you'll see over time if you are interested in what they cover.

                BTW, if you have several sites that you want to read, I'd add them all to Feedly (https://feedly.com) which aggregates and presents them all in a nice format.

                  I actually try to do this a lot of the time. I thought there might be a ready base of subscribers here to poll for their thoughts and it could be a cool discussion. But I will probably try and figure out how to get some regular reading going on.

                  +1 on Feedly. Great way to keep track of web sites and blogs ant the very few ads are very easy to skip over.

                I look at their BBQ lists online but I won't spend money on a subscription.


                  I will not renew my subscription this year. Mag has changed so much over the last several years, with articles about too many things that don't interest me. Writers appear to be very young and too hip for my 80 year old mind.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  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.

                  Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                  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.

                  Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages
