  1. Did you try soaking your thumb in water a little longer?
  2. That thing is definitely sweet and I think you're closing in on a really workable solution. I gotta think there would be a used dealership willing to give you similar financing on a gently used one. That would help you avoid the hit in new vs used value but retain most of the reliability. You'd just be renting it for the cost of the interest + (lower) depreciation. I understand not wanting to miss good for great though and think both are reasonable solutions, especially if your wife okays it.

  4. I've heard electrics don't have much smoke flavor. Was that your experience?
  5. I need some advice. I'm looking to start learning to smoke. Would eventually like to get to brisket after starting smaller. I've got kids, working on a dissertation, and full time job so I'm looking more for a set it and forget it situation. I realize this subset of the Surl might be averse to this, but it's just where I am. In the research I've done, it seems electric smokers are a no-go and charcoal/wood are too demanding of time (see above time constraints) and have a steep learning curve. So, I'm thinking a pellet smoker is the way to go for my situation, but I want something that is going to be worth buying and eventually using for brisket. I have a propane grill that I'm happy with and is only a few years old, so I've been thinking a vertical pellet smoker might be the best option for me. I'm considering these, but am open to suggestions: Camp Chef XXL: https://www.amazon.com/Camp-Chef-Vertical-Pellet-Smoker/dp/B07L48P5LP Pit Boss 5 Series: https://pitboss-grills.com/Shop-Pit-Boss/Grills/vertical-smokers/5-series-vertical-smoker-pellet What do y'all think? Do you have any experience with either of these?
  6. Was going to suggest Chattanooga as well. Lots of beautiful places to see in KY and TN. The Biltmore over in Ashville, NC is also incredible and historic. I think this is an excellent idea and the best opportunity to do it. The way I think about it is: though you may bicker and find it exhausting at times, you're not likely to regret the overall trip, but your're much more likely to look back in 5-10 years and regret not doing it. If your truck isn't able to haul a decent sized one reliably, I was thinking it might be worth it to buy a good-sized and reliable motorhome (no truck needed, hopefully fewer issues), then sell it when you're done. I can't imagine you'd lose more than 5k in value, but I don't know anything about RVs. This also reminded me of this article and map of the most efficient road trip to see major US landmarks. It might be helpful for adding some sights to your plan and providing a basis for an efficient route. https://www.wideopencountry.com/perfect-travel-route-across-us-according-science/

  8. Anyone have experience with a vertical pellet smoker? I have a propane grill that I'm happy with, but would like to get into some set it and forget it smoking.

  9. The positive rate is definitely decreasing nationally, with the number of new cases staying pretty steady.
  10. Continuing the charts I've posted sporadically from @lymanstoneky on twitter. Number of tests increasing and rate of positive tests decreasing: Deaths in US considering CT, NJ, and NY: Predicting the % of people who have actually contracted COVID based on the reported deaths. We're extraordinarily far from heard immunity if these are even close to accurate. Finally, Hong Kong's tracking of other infectious diseases, including pink eye, GI, and flu-like illnesses compared to past 10 years:

  13. I noticed quite unusually low inventory on autotrader for 2018 Siennas. Was pretty confused by that.
