    Pork ribs

    It's been an improvement for me. Plus, it gives the Steaks something to do while I let the Weber Kettle come up from low temp to high temp. Searing with the lid just cracked was another big help with getting the temp up.

    I rest my steaks between the cook and the sear.

    9.9/10. Best ribs I've made or had. As for the "dump" The only time I've had ribs in Memphis, they showed up with about 2 cups of rub dumped over them. I've had way better ribs since then. But as ridiculous as it was, it was tasty. Rub I used was something a friend sent me from BBQ Bible (his looked good; so I tried it). 1/4 cup Paprika 1.25 T Brown Sugar 1.25 Tsp Coarse Salt Fresh Ground Pepper Garlic Powder Onion Powder Cumin Cayenne Pepper Mustard Powder rubbed with mustard and applied rub liberally. Ran out of ACV. So I used a mixture of water, white vinegar, and LA hot sauce to spritz it about once per half hour after the first 2 hours. Added some quick, but not long lasting heat. Smoked for 6 hours on the WSM. Added more rub at the 5.5 hour mark.

    Did some Memphis ribs this afternoon without the ridiculous rub dump before serving. Outstanding.

    This. Makes no sense to me. Glad I'm not the only one.
  7. Full blood draw. Select the "don't have insurance" option, which I know is easy because you don't know the meaning of the word.
  8. $10. Schedule online. Took 5 minutes. Results in less than 24 hours. https://www.labcorp.com/antibody-testing
  9. Peticolas did a Wulaw trip out of town without his family (after being directed to the Wulawhorn saga). He had a ball. Check with him for his route. I know the first stop was Paladura Canyon and there were some Black Hills on the high end of the latitude.

    The Neil Young Tone

    So I'm catching up on this thread and wanted to mention a few things about the Whizzer settings for those unfamiliar with how these old Tweed 5e3 amps behave. The volume knobs are interactive, even with the guitar plugged into one channel. Starting with the volume you have the guitar plugged into. At 3, you are at full volume. Before 3, there's almost no volume. 0--60 in nuthin flat. From there, it just gets more compressed/distorted all the way up to 11.5. At 12, it will cut out to nothing for some reason (or maybe that's the unused volume knob; I can't remember). Tone is tone, but adds some hair after about 9. The other volume knob interacts by lessening the distortion as you turn it up. So if he has the input volume on 5 and turns the other volume up to 9, he's cleaning up the level of distortion a bit. Turn the other volume down to 2, and it adds the hair back. With all of this, the amp, even if running super nasty, will give a beautiful clean if the guitar volume gets rolled off from max to 7 or so. So with the Whizzer settings above, I don't see any of that lessening the overall volume since that maxes out at around 3 on the main volume input. What the Whizzer is doing is adjusting the amount of distortion/hair/compression/tone. Clean or dirty is almost entirely accomplished with guitar volume. A 5e3 really doesn't have a clean tone with the guitar on 10.
  11. We have to officially make a decision tomorrow whether to send our two (6th and 9th grader) back either in person or online. Lot of suck at play having to make that decision, but, thankfully, we all agreed that (1) it indeed sucks, and (2) both kids are going to go remote for the first six weeks while we see some proof of concept on our school district's part. I hate that they are going into these transitional grade-years remotely, but relieved otherwise.
  12. Let's see if I can do this right. They still can't get the color right on TV. No c/r. I'll show myself back to the Food threads and Wulawhorn thread of low bridges.
  13. Looks like Wulaw's tent activities have had a ripple effect on boondocking at Walmart. https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/31/business/walmart-rv-overnight-parking/index.html?utm_source=fark&utm_medium=website&utm_content=link&ICID=ref_fark
