  1. This thread needs more bread. Annual "roll making" complete. Far from perfect but they'll do.
  2. Agreed, even the half batch that I did last year was on the side of too much.
  3. Same - if nothing else it's a good excuse to stock the liquor cabinet for winter.
  4. Too hungry, no pics, was delicious.
  5. Unpictured (maybe later) - pulled pork went on the smoker a little before noon and has been stuck in a cooler until dinner time. Mac and cheese just went in the oven.
  6. ^^ Agreed, that would make for a nice pattern and will be easier to do than an X.
  7. Even if it doesn't immediately rack, it probably will over time. Like Steve suggested originally, I'd recommend a diagonal or x-brace for stiffness. Either that or gusset the corners significantly.
  8. Yesterday - hung out with the local riff raff. Given the size, likely a male. He hung around in that tree for a couple hours before moving on. Was pretty impressive to see.
  9. You had me at, I made dough. WANT!
  10. Lily and I decided that today required cookies. Chocolate Chocolate Chip w/ Toasted Coconut
  11. Aw fudge, how did I miss this? Happy belated Birthday, Mikey!
  12. Happy Birthday, Chris! Here's to hoping you found a way to get out on the bike.
  13. This. Here's to hoping SNL can pull off a Jeopardy in Heaven episode w/ both Connery and Trebek now being gone.
  14. Got outside for another bike ride. Was able to enjoy the color orange in a different way than the past few years.
  15. Seriously, it was so nice here yesterday that I rode my bike to work. I think the last time I did that in November it was 19F when I left the house. Yesterday it was 52F and was still in the 60s when I got home (after dark). It was funny to ride by the various small bodies of water near my house and feel how cold the thermal influence of that mass made the surrounding air. It was like riding through pockets of the refrigerated isle at the grocery store.
  16. Please be careful with that. When I started looking at laser attachments for the Shapeoko I decided the only laser I'd ever let myself near was one in a fully rated enclosure with idiot (me) proof controls. I'd suggest making a pre-burn checklist that you rigorously follow.
  17. Voted. Just once, despite presidential advice to the contrary.
  18. Ho. Lee. Shit. I'm hella jealous of your pending gyro. Not that my dinner was lacking.
  19. I think I'd just drill 3 or 4 holes in it and call it a day. It's nearly impossible to reconstruct at that point and unless the NSA really is after your data, probably 10x what you need to do.
  20. If you ever make your way out to NH, Steve, I'll make sure brisket is on the menu.
  21. Back at it today w/ [2] 5lb brisket flats and a small amount of point I trimmed off one (for burnt ends). It's cold here (36F) so it'll be interesting to see how much fuel the Traeger burns and how things come up to temp. Started things off at 190F, will push up to 225F when the meat hits ~120F, naturally in Super Smoke mode the entire time. Then it'll be the wait-and-see watch for the stall process which is where the Fireboard really earns its keep.
