    Panhead John I'm afraid I'm guilty as charged, this isn't the first time I've pointed out rickgregory for posting condescending hypocrisy, which apparently in Seattle is considered a personal attack. He is, however, flattering himself thinking I follow him around, but I suppose everyone needs a hobby. Chess is one of mine, and Dictator Attack would make a great name for an opening. 1. h4 doesn't have a name yet as it is a losing move. Maybe naming it Dictator Attack would catch on

    PJ - ah, now you're a mod. Interesting. Of course no one has ever raised any issue with me, so forgive me if I take your claim with... some salt.

    What you miss is that CN has, several times, attacked me personally (the 'dictator attack is precisely that).

    rickgregory I agree with CN 100%. Nobody is following you around and trying to police what you say. You seem to be a pretty intelligent guy with much to offer here. But then you turn around and ruin it all with your caustic comments to people when you don’t agree with them. That’s what this place is NOT about. You seriously need to re-examine whether you want to be here or not. There’s several people I’ve learned about recently who have blocked you because of your critical comments.

    Exactly, this thread clearly has nothing to do with food 😂

    ComfortablyNumb - you seem to follow me around and try to police what I say. You love digging up things and bitching about it. I'll save you the trouble. You're on Ignore.

    Oak Smoke You really do need to be more tolerant. I'm sure all your vegan friends would invite you over for a meal and cook you a beef steak, or perhaps a rack of ribs. Because, as you seem to be unaware, vegans are food tolerant people and would never impose their diet upon you. Just ask rickgregory about the last time a vegan invited him over and what he said when rick asked for a meat burger.

    <sigh> Wasn't it just a fortnight ago you were telling us the subject was tiresome and to move on? Oh yes it was https://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/fo...ant-based-meat Now here you are telling us how we should consider the subject. <sigh> Have you considered finding a country to be dictator over? You seem to have a natural talent.

    Again I ask, please use Off Topic for things....off... the topic of food, cookers, cooking, cooking accessories, fuels, etc.. Thanks for your cooperation in both helping keep things organized and eliminating extra work for the mods.

    So if a friend of yours brings a vegetarian partner/wife/husband or a friend of yours stops eating meat you're just going to tell them to F off?

    If I'm hosting friends the dishes aren't the important part. The friends are.

    Yeah, you might want to think about why you're so intolerant..

    Both portabellos, an cauliflower are delightful, scrumptious treats, which I greatly savor, an enjoy... as an aside: neither one are beef steaks...

    I should be more like you, but I’m not. Good grief I’ve gotten cantankerous in my old age! If I’m grilling or inviting folks over for BBQ i expect them to understand we are talking about meat. Meat from a vat, no problem, I do a good smoked bologna. I will agree that a good mushroom or one of a score of good things that can be done with cauliflower are fine. Perhaps it’s my sunny disposition or my inclusive ways that keep me from being invited over for salad. Being a curmudgeon has its drawbacks

    Industrial meat production is bad in a lot of ways (environmental too) and while I understand t he plant based 'meat' companies wanting to create a steak alternative to go with the ground beef alternative, it will be really hard.

    I think a more sustainable alternative would be vat grown meat which raises some really interesting questions...

    1) If you couldn't tell the difference between meat from an animal and vat grown, would you care?
    2) If you're vegetarian for ethical reasons, do those reasons apply here?

    I don't see why the mere existence of this stuff tweaks some of you out so much. They're nice alternatives for people who, for whatever reason, don't eat meat. If I was having a mixed crowd over today and some were vegetarians, I'd be really happy that I could grill them an Impossible Burger and include them in a cook out without making a big fuss about it.

    Why do I keep reading these fake meat threads? I keep swearing I won't. Damn it.

    Yep ... and a nice thick "steak" cut from a cauliflower, then properly seasoned and grilled ain't bad either.

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.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

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.
