      Couldn't rightly say, since taste is so highly subjective...

      Widely known fact: even though I have like 14-16 typesa smoker woods to hand...I use Hickory bout 90+% th time...

      Now ya got me wonderin if'n my Bourbon Barrel chunks from Fruita Wood might not be even better...

      Gonna havedta take yet another hit, in th name of Science, I'd havedta reckon..."p

    Dang, this gives me flashbacks! I still have an Army web belt with canteen cup holder and canteen in my garage (along with my Army-issued helmet for god sakes).

    1. The BEST cup of Joe I ever had was at the end of a 72 hour training exercise at Fort Dicks (aptly named) just before going to Nam. The exercise was for us to stay awake in our fox holes (hah!) and protect our line against the aggressors. I think we died . April in new Jersey, it was cold, not hot food or drink for 72 hours. At the end, the mess guys setup an outdoor kitchen with 55 gallon drums with immersion heaters, filled with water and then bags of coffee dumped into it and boiled. We got to dip our canteen cups in there - I'm tell you, the greatest cup of Joe ever was!!
    2. Then, in Nam, some decide to teach how to love scotch. Every night for 2 weeks, we'd fill our canteen cups with crushed ice (I know, where'd we get that in 100+ weather - dunno). Filled that with Cutty Sark, and after 2 weeks, LOVED scotch!
    3. Well, kind of not for everyone, but canteen cups made for great roach holders. That's for what's left after "one toke over the line..."

    And now I have a new way to use the one in the garage - for hot dogs! Joy! Thanks Mr. Bones!

      On big ops like Dewey Canyon, when whole brigades were deployed, we combat engineers would cut an LZ, they chopper in the infantry and air bourne. Hours later, Chesty WestyMoreland would have mess units come into the LZ with big containers of stuff: scrambled eggs, beef stew, s**t on shingle, chicken etc. was very, very weird. Made for TV combat. What can I say?

      Thanks man. Life has been a very strange journey to sure. When folks asked what it was like, I tell 'em it was like these movies (something I thought could be easily grasped): Platoon (real war s**t there), Apocalypse Now (bizarre, deadly, surreal) and Catch 22 (from Milo Minderbinder to Yosarian - the deadly absurdity of it all).

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


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.
