    I’m already a week behind but plan on making this year’s 8-egg batch this coming weekend.

    Same - if nothing else it's a good excuse to stock the liquor cabinet for winter.

    They need to be very snug. No slack at all.

    Even then, you may find it racks.

    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.

    Annnnnnnnnnndddddd, about a week later.....gotta love New England


    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.

    I got the J Tech Photonics laser upgrade for the Shapeoko. Started installing it today, hope to do some test runs this weekend.

    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.

  7. 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.
