    Length of comments

    Hi all,

    Unless I'm mistaken (and my wife tells me ALL THE TIME that I am), you can write a lengthy original post but comments are limited to a certain number of characters requiring longer comments to go across 2, 3, or more "comment"s.

    Can this be lengthened?

    Comments are meant to be short sidebar conversations so there is a limit. It has actually been lengthened a couple times already. Sometimes brevity is best!

    Hey, originally a tweet was limited to 140 characters. Even now, it's only 280. By comparison, 500 characters is practically encyclopedic!

      500 characters, which means you may use all 26 letters for the alpha bet 20 times with 0.8333 of a letter left.

    Hint: if you've got something worthwhile to comment regarding the post of another person that will exceed the limits of the comment box that's what the quote feature is for. Quote the poster you're responding to and then remark as you think is necessary, call it Plan B if you wish.

    Finally, A Great Portable Pellet Smoker

    Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

    Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

    Green Mountain’s portable Trek 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. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

    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.

    Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

    Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
    Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

    The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


    Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

    Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


    The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

    Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


    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’.
