    DogFaced PonySoldier I am like you...thought I had a lifetime supply (I'm old) until this last year. Now I am very stingy with ammo when I go shooting. Takes the fun out of it. I do have a semi-reliable source but that is getting iffy.

    Same here. This is where wet aging really becomes a convenience for me. Now the clock is ticking for me to use some frozen stuff in the next 30 days or so to make room for a brisket in the freezer. lol

    I suffer from a similar affliction, although I don't have a problem using items that are already in my freezer. I DO have a problem with turning down "sales" and "screaming deals". My freezers are so stuffed that I probably couldn't fit an ice cube in the spare space.

    I am powerless over people places and all things BBQ. One Day at a Time.
    About a year and a half ago we had the family over for a BBQ and I told them my freezer was full and they could help themselves. Damn near cleaned me out! Talked to one of the sons the other day and he asked if the freezer was full again and to free free to get another prime rib so he could take it off my hands. Geeze!

    Choice. For some reason, the "regular" price is always $6.99, but there is never much on hand, and then they put a bunch out and mark it way down. I usually buy CAB elsewhere for around $3.50/lb.

    I'm pretty stocked up, not for the LONG haul, but I'm also not shooting much these days, just to conserve until the shortage dries up or the bottom falls out.

    Until it needs re-winding (or if it's quartz until the battery dies)

    Troutman How long do you smoke a watch?

    DogFaced PonySoldier Agree, now if we could just find more ammo.

    BBQPhil Have it connected to natural gas (most reliable) or LP.

    Yea I somehow missed this post too. It's a good one that strikes home for a lot of us I'm sure. I actually got to the point of getting a third freezer until my better half sat me down and we had an intervention. I must admit my addiction has gotten under a degree of control, both freezers are only 2/3rds full as we speak. I intentionally steer clear of the meat counter at the grocery store, my butcher has forgotten my name and Costco....forget about it.

    However being the OCD addict that I am, something had to replace the meat buyer's cravings so I turned instead to watches. I don't want to go into how large my collection has bloomed into, I now hide them from my wife so I don't hear "Is that ANOTHER new watch?".

    Someone please help me......

    (BTW, anyone like watches ??? )

    $1.99/# is what they sell select for here. At $6.99/# you get American Wagyu. What grade was that brisket?

    This sounds like the BBQ man's equivalent of BRD - Black Rifle Disease. I suffer from both, unfortunately. I'm well stocked up on both at the moment.

    <edit> Of course, that doesn't mean I'm not looking for room to place more, in both the freezer OR the safes!

    Well, it's happening again. On my latest detour through the Kroger meat section today, I saw a bunch of those $1.99/lb briskets again, almost a year later to the day. Of course I needed one. Plenty more where this one came from, but my freezers are crammed full.

    Aaaand D’Artagnan has a 30% off sale on American Wagyu ground beef, plus free shipping on over $150. 20 lbs of American Wagyu, on its way. At least it’s getting delivered Tuesday, so I can burn the box before Mrs Mosca gets home from work.

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.

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!

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 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.

GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

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.
