      Really nice chart. Now if they would come up with another system to measure that was simpler and easier to use.🤔

        Perhaps one day but I've searched all over America and it simply doesn't exist.

        The metric system. Even Jack Daniels knows that. 750ML?

        bbqLuv A little slow on catching the sarcasm in the posts above. Maybe a few too many milliliters of the Old Crow? 🙂

        Metric is for people who don't like unnecessary challenges.

          This is true. Metric is an escalator and imperial is the stairs. In other words, metric is for lazy people.

          The metric system has to be metered out,

        Just printed this out. Will go on the fridge, held up by the AR temp magnet.

          Been pretty much 50 years and I still don't get most of metric.
          Mind you I haven't put much effort into it either.

            Yeah. We still buy a 4x8 sheet of plywood, not 1220 x 2440 mm...

            Even here metric is a 50-50 thing, go to Home Depot the lumber is sold as 4x8 plywood or 2x4 studs.
            In the case of studs the are sold as 2x4's in inches but cut in metric so they are slightly smaller. Buncha crap.

            Well, a 2" x 4" board here is also slightly smaller. Looks like we're both getting ripped off.

          Noticed one error...they have 1/3 cup and teaspoon at 1:1, and 2/3 cup and teaspoon at 2:1. Otherwise very cool.

            Well, actually, it is correct. The 1/3 cup has the line from one teaspoon AND a line from 5 tablespoons, There is a really tiny "+" between them, so it takes 5T plus 1t to make 1/3 cup. Similarly, 2/3 C = 10T + 2t.

            Just noticed that on the chart while standing in front of my fridge getting ice to shock some chicken thighs that were in SV.

          Thank goodness for the metric system, although for cooking I do use cups, tbsp, tsp even degF. Remnants from a few years spent in Houston.

            Now what they need to do is expand the chart and do conversions to all the metric measurements. That would blow your mind !!!

              Here’s a conversion chart that’s been stuck on our fridge for years
              I’m better with Latin, but this may help some

                  Troutman - I've got extra time, Powerpoint, a collection of calculators (RPN, of course), and about 24 years of skoolin' (I think I might have quit after the 10 grade) ... so no problem!

                  BTW, what is this "Aggie" of which you speak? I went to grad school at UT ... 🤓 ... so "Honk'em Horns!" or whatever they used to say ... (it was UTD) ...

                  MBMorgan Then you must be familiar with the famous Texas Aggies engineering department (akin to the Polish Naval Brigade). I'm told they still use slide rules to solve differential equations

                Now we need temps in F vs C and in cricket chirps.

                  I have a bit of OCD and noticed that both the 1/3 and 2/3 cup to tsp conversions are wrong. 1 tsp is not equal to 1/3 cup or 2 tsp to 2/3 cup. Escpecially when you consider that 1/4 cup is equal to 12 tsp.

                    To quote from jim1251 's comment above: "see the little plus sign in the angle ? it is 1 teaspoon "plus" 5 tablespoons =1/3 of a cup."

                  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.
