Title: Running up Post count... Vote Closes March 19 2010
Post by: icerat4 on May 02, 2007, 03:33:35 pm
I have been notified by a few here wondering why some people are just running up there post count with lil or no info on any certian post.Just putting up smiles and 1 liner seem to be the way to the top for some here.I feel smiles and 1 liners are part of the fun .But when over used just to get ya up the rank ladder well i see there point.Most of the people ive seen around here know whos who and whats really brought to the bradley smoking fourm.So those folks who need to feel loved by a ranked deal do what ya need to do.Just my 2 cents.This gets me 1 post count and a topic started wow. ;D.Maybe one day i will pass olds up thats my dream lol.And just a heads up i was not going to post this topic but i did and thats that.Happy smoking. ;D ;D

I agree rat.  I try to put out meaningful or useful information.  I have done a few one liners and/or smiles but only because there is not much more I can add, or simply do not have the time at that moment to go any further.  I usually try to compliment the folks for making a good effort and being successful when I do this, or in response to a joke I like.  (A kind of acknowledgement) That being said, the rankings, as far as I am concerned, simply show how active someone is on the forum and not necessarily the quality of their contributions.  Some contribute much more than others.  I still consider myself a newbie with BS techniques since I have only owned one since last October.  I do have some years of experience, but with other smoking units and of course the grill.

Only one way to take it.  I just responded to your pm.  Please pass it on to "the others" that elected you as the messenger.  Looking forward to your/their response.

Wildcat,

The best thing to do is just ignore this utterly ridiculous topic, and consider the source. ;)

Wildcat,

The best thing to do is just ignore this utterly ridiculous topic, and consider the source. ;)

I appreciate what you are trying to say, but this member has helped me a lot in the past, I considered him a friend, and generally value his input.  I am sure that he and I can work it out off-line and hopefully with the other concealed members that are involved with this as well.  I only responded on the forum to what was put on the forum.

As a reminder to all, from old timers to new members, this forum is for sharing and helping others.  Disregard the post ranking status.  Since there are no qualifiers for the different ranks listed, other than how many posts, I have always considered it as a reflection on how active the members are.  I have always felt this is a brother/sisterhood and sometimes differences will arise.  There are many great smokers on here and they are in all the categories (From Hero members to Newbies).  The same goes for good hearted people, electronic gadget geniuses, metal fabricators, carpenters, hunters, fishermen, computer guru's, etc.  Spend enough time on here and it will be obvious.

Well personaly i don't give a ***t! about post counts, as Wildcat said they just show how active members are, or have been on the forum.

My take on it is this, lot's of great people here, some more experienced than others, but all great people just the same.
I think we all look at each other as friends, as we all have at least one thing in common....the Bradley. However i think it goes a bit further than that at this forum/community, we all like to share a joke and some banter, and help each other as best we can, we even try and lift each others spirits when feeling down, and we are drawn to this forum on a regular basis, and why not? it's a great place to be a part of.

Sometimes 1 smiley replies are all that is needed to get a point accross, just like in conversation when somebody does a 1 liner.
I use smileys a lot as i think it's a bit of fun to brighten things up, sometimes i'll reply with a smiley or a few smileys, depending on the point i'm trying to make.

I'm an admin of another forum, and 1 smiley replies are common over there just like many other forums, so no big deal for me ::)

I think the amosphere is the main thing, and this place has plenty of that, i have received lot's of help and advice here, and i have also given help and advice to others here, that's what it's all about.

Enjoy the friendship, the pics, the food, the knowledge just about everything,.......but............don't take it all too seriously(http://privat.bluezone.no/birgitf/butt.gif)

Icerat4, as a personal favor to me and many others here, don't leave this forum.  You know your smoke and we still need your assistance.  I can understand your frustration with regards to being a messenger, I have been one myself before.  I still consider you a friend and a valuable mentor.
Title: Re: Running up Post count...
Post by: Mr Walleye on May 03, 2007, 01:07:01 pm
Icerat4

I also agree with Wildcat, LilSmoker and the others, It just indicates some are more active than others. I for one would be very disappointed if you stayed away Icerat! I sure hope you reconsider. Your knowledge and humor is greatly appreciated. I think it's the vast array of people, their opinions and their backgrounds that make this place so good. Forgive and forget, water under the bridge, life's too short and so on, all come to mind here.

Seriously...  What difference does it make?  I am baffled why anyone would  (A.) Pay attention to someone else's post count or (B.)   Feel the need to comment on it for ANY reason.

I suppose if the posts some are deeming "unnecessary" were some how disruptive, I could understand why it might bear mentioning.  Do some folks feel it cheapens their status when others achieve the same status with so called bogus posts?

I don't know...  seems silly!  Lets talk about food!
Title: Re: Running up Post count...
Post by: Wildcat on May 03, 2007, 02:02:00 pm
Don't sweat it guys.  I may be wrong, but my guess is that there are some VERY experienced smokers on this forum that look at the status ranking as an indication of their abilities and/or indication of their assistance to others in perfecting anothers smoking abilities.  (Of course compliments or encouragement do not count) It is possible that inexperienced newbies (not the experienced newbies) may look at the status of someones post and be misled.  Or it could be that some of the folks are upset that someone with less abilities or knowledge (in reality or perceived) is reaching the same "important status" as they have (vanity).  I can understand these things easily enough.  I also feel that there is a simple remedy.  Create another status (Expert) and set it up so that only the true experts are in this category and can get into it (as well as the other catagories) by having a panel to vote them in instead of how active they are.  With luck, the good ole boy (buddy) system will not come into play and only the experts will get into that catagory.  I personally could care less what my ranking level is.  I have simply posted a lot.  Some of it very short.  They can put me back into the newbie listing if they want.  I DO care about people and friendship.  I want help when I need it, and I want to pass on my experiences and what I have learned from others.

I commend Icerat4 for having the guts to be the messenger in this case and hope the "others" that used him in this fashion have not caused us to lose what I consider to be an "Expert" on this forum.  It hurts me that this has troubled Rat to this extent.  He is a good man with a big heart.
Title: Re: Running up Post count...
Post by: Tiny Tim on May 03, 2007, 02:16:20 pm
Very well stated, Wildcat.

I feel that I am the one that started all of this crap by my replies to SKSmoker yesterday.  In those replies, I was trying to be funny, and at the same time have him create something new to share with us either because it was good, or to warn us against trying it.

My apologies to anybody who may have been offended.

Post by: Wildcat on May 03, 2007, 04:06:38 pm
Tiny - I have not seen that post and will try to look it up, but based on my conversations with Icerat, I doubt that is what started this.  I really do not think there is truely a problem here.  Some guilty feelings perhaps.
Title: Re: Running up Post count...
Post by: Oldman on May 03, 2007, 05:15:12 pm
Ok Folks,....
If post count, counts then I'm top dog of this pile.  Post count don't mean D I C K to me. My count is high because of doing the recipe site. It is high because the old posting board was not as easy as this board to use and I ended up helping many members out.  I bet in real postings you could cut my count in half to equal food content postings.

I've been on so many gaming sites that there are many that will spam a board just to drive up the count. Who cares? In my mind there are reason members driving up a count... one is just for fun and I've seen threads in the 10 of thousands of postings where member are having fun try to out post each other.

As Posted here, a smile is a good post at times. A one liner may not add much but it shows that a member is active. These are the important items IMO. 

So with all that said and done... I hope you all enjoy the next ten postings....

Next...anyone?   :P

EDIT: On one now defunk gaming board I remember seeing a count that was over 20,000!  That person at first looked like he was one lost and hurting puppy....  that was until we found out he was a young man dieing in bed.  His folks had fixed so he could get on line while in bed.

I've  come to believe that he did that to feel that he belonged.  He passed away three years ago.

So post away your one liners... your smilys... or just stick out your tongue... it is ok... at least with this Ole Man.

Hey rat

dont cut out on us here, I really enjoy your posts and you helped me out in a jam ;D

Like i said in my earlier post, the count dont mean nothing to me, It's the comrades here.

NOUN: 1. A person who shares one's interests or activities; a friend or companion. 2. often Comrade A fellow member of a group.

I am glad to read any post .......... this forum is the grand melting pot of numorus countries , heritages and just good ole boys looking for that ultimate mouth watering flavor they have in the back of their mind .... but never seem to achive........... at least I never do .... so here I sit . reading . printing absorbing like a pork loin in good brine . yet my quest is never cured........ so many meats so many flavors so little time ..............  just a big thank you to any one who has ever posted that saved me some ever so precious smoking time . by eliminating mistakes I may have made, that others have already learned

This is a very cool place ! With REAL people , with real feelings . I feel there is a certain kinship here.
Many a Thanksgiving dinner has a speed bump between courses due to misunderstandings. But at the
end of the meal , were still at the table...and still family...........and planning our next get together.

...............This is a great place !!!!     But without the people..............It'd just be smoke...........

I made a resolution not to respond and add to posts that tend to be divisive. This is as much as a wedge issue than any political, religious, racial, or environmental topic.

IceRat4;
I say this with a great deal of fondness; "What were you thinking? :), when you started this thread. No reply necessary; that has just be building up and I had to let it go. I think you learned this the hard way, but be careful of what you want to be a spokesman for.

Having said that; let me go on the record as taking the position that numbers, large or small are not an indication of one's knowledge of the subject matter, or how one is contributing to the forum. If someone wants to posts smileys or one liners; because they don't have time to make a full response or they feel a smiley is an appropriate response; then so be it. If non-offensive jokes are posted to liven up the forum; so be it.
Title: Re: Running up Post count...
Post by: Wildcat on May 04, 2007, 05:06:12 am
Nicely said Habs!  I sincerely believe that if one has nothing to add to what has already been said about a good post or smoke, then a simple thumbs up smile or a simple "Well Done" goes a long way on making that person feel good and it shows that others agree with or are proud of their post.  Many of you guys have made me feel good by doing so, including Rat.  The first one that did this to me was Iceman back when I was in the newbie rank.  I had already learned of his background.  That "attaboy" is what kept me on this forum and made me want to try out other things that I would never had done on my other smoker.  If you are limited in time, or if you have nothing further to add and just want to extend a compliment or encouragement, a one liner and/or a smile really does go a long way in helping others.  The more people that do this, the more impact it has, especially to a new person to a BS.  This is why I do this.  I am retired and have more time than many of you and this explains the volume of my posts.  Although I may eventually have as many posts as anyone on here, I will never be the calibre of smoker as many of you, primarily because I do not have the formal education nor do I smoke as frequently as many of you.  I can, however, draw from your knowledge, make really nice meals and pass your and my knowledge/experience along to others.

If you guys are that offended and want me to delete my account and go back to the newbie ranks under a different name, say so.   I do not care what my rank is.  If  I am that disliked and you just want me to leave, say so.  I do not want to be where I am not wanted, nor do I want to be ignored by what I thought were friends.  If you can live with it, then so can I.  Just don't beat around the bush about it.  Show some maturity and speak out.

Well, WC, I'd like to see ya stick around.  But realize this is coming from somebody who has more stars than he should because he likes to bs with people once the problems are fixed (and sometimes just to be a smarta... oops, can't use that word).

This part is for everybody else, especially those that are complaining about the post counts.  I have a hundred cases of chill pills, please PM me your shipping address and I'll send ya a couple of bottles.  This is a message board.  People use it to talk to people.  There is a lot of good information here, in fact, I think everything that has been posted while being serious is good info, and anything else was intended to be funny or supportive (and most people take it as such).

Darn, my soap box just broke...now if somebody will help me back to my feet, I'll shut up for now.

Hi Cat.  

I can only speak for myself, but I like a free exchange of comments, whether they be jokes, praise, recipes, techniques, suggestions, ideas, encouragement,  pictures of meal (or pets or loved ones), etc.  I'm relatively new here and only know posters by what I've read.  From what I've read, I see quite a bit of friendly sarcasm, and I think that the continued posts in this thread are precisely that.

If we all lived a bit closer, I'd suggest all affected parties get together and open up a bottle of wine, whiskey, apple juice or whatever suits and smoke up a nice meal to bury the hatchet and reinforce why we all are drawn to this unique site.  Provided I am invited, of course.  And I get to pick the menu.   ;)

Smoke 'em if you got 'em.  I look forward to reading posts on this site each day.  I see that other posts were added while I was writing this one.  Plus one for me

What's the frequency, Kenneth? Of course, the answer is in Wikipedia:

Quote
The title refers to the question one of two unknown assailants (one later identified as William Tager) asked CBS anchorman Dan Rather while assaulting him on Park Avenue in Manhattan in October 1986. The phrase Rather reported actually hearing was "Kenneth, what is the frequency?"

R.E.M. vocalist Michael Stipe said of the incident: "It remains the premier unsolved American surrealist act of the 20th century. It's a misunderstanding that was scarily random, media hyped and just plain bizarre." On June 22, 1995, at Madison Square Garden, Rather accompanied the band during soundcheck to perform the song. The clip was shown prior to R.E.M.'s performance of "Crush with Eyeliner" on Late Show with David Letterman the following night.

Tager later claimed that he had come from a parallel universe some 200 years in the future. He also claimed that because everyone in the future had a double in the past, he had mistaken Rather for his future double, Vice President Kenneth Burroughs, and that he attacked Rather in an attempt to recover the information needed to stop the television signals being sent to his brain and return to his own time.

I kind of like making this thread the twilight zone connection.  Reinvent the energy. And I've got Johnny O in town. 

Lunch is on, and darned if I can think of any restaurant worthwhile for a Friday afternoon, but I'm gonna look into a few things.  Arcs: if you're in the valley, join up.  Last time I was near your valley, LLL, we were riding on a rim having messed up a good tire and a spare.  Livermore is not a place with good cell reception or a lot of AAA car service. 

And O: what in the Twilight Zone are those pix of? Reminds me of Pulp Fiction. 

Looking for a good Friday and a chance to attach some faces to some creative writing.

Your seeing stuff I grew up with.  As a kid we grew up at 7000 to 8500 feet, can't remember which.  The path to Taos went over 9,500 feet and skiing at the local ski resort as a kid was close to 10,000  Fun area to grow up.

I miss the mountains as times, but not the dry brown landscape.  I am still enjoying the green humid East.

Yes... I'm really liking the way this thread is turning into a piece of fun.  First, with respect to recent comments: replicate me some beer and beam it over (with a nice pulled pork sammie, if you please).  Second, Owr: hope you had fun in Indianapolis... third, you put the Burro in Burrito.


And Finally, my perro problem has been simplified.  The little bugger, and his bigger friend, like ribs.  I found this out by placing a couple of smoked baby backs just on my side of the fence, along the crack.  They don't bark when they hear my slider any more; they bark and wag when they see me peek over the fence.  Bribery is golden.

Doppler shift emerges in a thread on a Bradley forum. In conjunction with reference to beer and to wormholes.  Presumably a Ranier beer (and a red one at that), with a side of smoked tribble (lot's of white meat). 
Title: Re: Running up Post count...
Post by: IKnowWood on June 06, 2007, 08:35:28 am
If you get the tribble 2 days old after it has expanded his community 100 times.  He is darn tired and raw and the white meat will get a little browner when smoked.  Resembling more of what you get from a Kraken dropping or was that the ABT?

This is sad from what we learned in this country.

Very interesting - now we can understand their thinking.


Can a good Muslim be a good American?


Of course this applies to Canada and for that matter the whole of Western
Europe as well.


This is something I've wondered about for some time now: How & why do the
Muslims hate us & everyone else so much? Doesn't their God teach them to love?


Can a good Muslim be a good American?


I sent that question to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years.
The following is his reply:


Theologically - no. Because his allegiance is to Allah, the moon god of Arabia .


Religiously - no. Because no other religion is accepted by his Allah except
Islam (Quran, 2:256).


Scripturally - no. Because his allegiance is to the five pillars of Islam
and the Quran (Koran).


Geographically - no. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns
in prayer five times a day.


Socially - no. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends
with Christians or Jews.


Politically - no. Because he must submit to the mullah (spiritual leaders),
who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan.


Domestically - no. Because he is instructed to marry four women and beat
and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34).


Intellectually - no. Because he cannot accept the American Constitution
since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt.


Philosophically - no. Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow
freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist.


Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic.


Spiritually - no. Because when we declare "one nation under God," the
Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as
heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the Quran's 99 excellent names.


Therefore after much study and deliberation...perhaps we should be very
suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. They obviously cannot be both
"good" Muslims and good Americans. Call it what you wish....it's still the truth.


If you find yourself intellectually in agreement with the above statements,
perhaps you will share this with your friends. The more who understand this,
the better it will be for our country and our future.


Be careful picking your friends, you may be choosing your executioner for yourself and your family !
 
Pass it on, Fellow Americans.


The war is bigger than we know or understand.

we rolled into renton wa friday night... was going to regroup saturday and ride out to see the goats at hurricane ridge on sunday but the weather girl said sunny saturday and rain sunday...

so saturday morning we unloaded and rolled out later then we wanted too... then we got stuck in the 167 mess because of the good guys car show in kent... then we got stuck in the 5 mess in tacoma... so we decided to forgo the 101 and save time on the 16... o my... nightmare getting across the tacoma narrows bridge... then traffic breaks and we are rolling...  all in all just 30 miles in 3 hours...

the ridge... it was sunny on the east side and foggy on the west side... spectacular... next time we will have to make it a two day ride and take in neah bay and other sights too...

Olds its just a little non-specific temporal resonance of nutro-based emissions on protons and electrons leaving a gaseous geo-location area.  Course the specific location of the rejected material may indicate an actual non worm-hole ejection possibly due to gammae or plasma superheated ocular movement of an ejector leaving a chamber emitting fruit heated amient odors.

..

..

OK, even I understood what I just wrote..  Pretty accurate, if I must day.  Except emissions was likely rather physical shearing off the material rather than some more sexy physics based methods.  hmm this is Ca area, maybe some Livermore vacationers may have been there to do this.

Yes, some do put a slice of lemon in it although that is not the norm in these parts.  Admittedly it is mild but I find the flavor and slightly acidic pH complement a lot of food very nicely, particularly BBQ from the Bradley.  For normal drinking though I go for Hopfenperle or Üli Bier, brewed locally on the Rhein (though not with Rheinwasser, zum Glück).

Gee why wouldn't you molest a bear?    They are so cute and cudley.  Of course you gotta wonder why the artist though it important to highlight the hind quarters by elevating them in the picture.  The bear and deer must have been posing during mating.

Must have been a lawyer in the park.  Don't worry folks, I a have a few in the family (lawyers that is, niece and nephew).

The following was developed as a mental age assessment by the School of Psychiatry at Harvard University. Take your time and see if you can read each line aloud without a mistake. The average person over 40 years of age cannot do it!

It is important to read each line aloud.

 1. This is this cat.
 2. This is is cat.
 3. This is how cat.
 4. This is to cat.
 5. This is keep cat.
 6. This is an cat.
 7. This is old cat.
 8. This is fart cat.
 9. This is busy cat.
 10. This is for cat.
 11. This is forty cat.
 12. This is seconds cat.
 
  Now go back and read the third word in each line from the top down.

Here is the article.

Bear rescued from Sierra bridge
 

 
Associated Press
Truckee, Calif. - A 250pound bear stranded under a bridge near Lake Tahoe was saved by an army of rescuers, a tranquilizer dart and a nylon net bought at an Army surplus store.
Claw marks on the con• crete railing of the Rainbow Bridge show where the bruin's ordeal began, said Dave Baker of the Truckee BEAR League, who was the fIrst to arrive on the scene Sept. 15.
It was walking across the span on Highway 40 near
Donner Summit in the Sierra Nevada when oncoming cars spooked it, causing it to jump over the railing. It caught a ledge and pulled itself onto a concrete girder beneath the bridge.
Volunteers strung a. net under the bridge, and an an• imalcontrol ofl1cer shot the bear with tranquilizer.
After the bear lost con-• sciousness, volunteers used a pole to push it into the net, then lowered the bear to the floor of the ravine as more than 100 spectators cheered.

very cool car54...

i knew it was near tahoe but didnt know the details... lucky bear...

now to the matter at hand...

being from the midwest and in constant search of the deep fried breaded pork tenderloin sandwich with onion... pickles... mustard... ketchup... mayo...

we discovered the hash house in san diego and tommys in san clemente... more on the hash house in previous post... the iowans were there... they got proof... tommys is right off the 5 at the el camino real exit...

it was not an iowa 80 truck stop tenderloin but it was tasty... i would recommend the place to the hungered slabber...

Beautiful scenery, Owrstrich. I lost my best friend a little over 3 years ago on a BMW, and every time I see one I think of him. The man logged thousands and thousands of miles per year (mostly by himself) and ended up wrapped around a guardrail on the interstate about 2 miles from his house. But, enough of that sad sh!t. Enjoy yourself, BE CAREFUL, and thanks for posting your pics. They brought back some good old memories and put a smile on my face.

Hey Owrs...I just contacted them (TommyPastrami) about opening one in the desert...you know...where "Indio" Pale Ale comes from!! :)
Title: Re: Running up Post count...
Post by: owrstrich on November 12, 2007, 07:30:30 pm
the tommy pastrami is really good... they are strip mall type deals... no atmosphere and no beers... just meat...

im thinking a wing nuts would be the way to go... a wing nuts with a connecting tommy pastrami... that would be a killer duo...

http://www.wingnuts.biz

wing nuts is always packed with loyal customers... the very best wings... lots o beers... their web site is pathetic...

they even have some of the indio on tap...

La Quinta,
Here is a web page that has some tech speak about India Pale Ale.  Peers to be a term too loosely used these days for this web site.

http://www.allaboutbeer.com/style/modern_ipa.html (http://www.allaboutbeer.com/style/modern_ipa.html)


If you really want "Indio Pale Ale", then here you go.  Albeit a typo?

I saw it a couple of years ago in a Wendy's parking lot in Pulaski, VA. A couple of guys I was with went up and talked to the guy and girl driving the thing, and had a pretty interesting conversation. Sorry, that's all I remember, I didn't have enough interest to stop eating lunch and go with them. Strange looking ride, though.

You had me worried there for a moment when you mentioned Turkey day and then had a picture of a donkey.  Thought maybe you got confused on which farm you stopped at until I saw the heading on the picture.  Sure glad you didn't try to pluck a couple of them.  They can get kinda mulish you know.

My daughter rescued this Chihuahua. It was completely afraid of all people. It is about 6 months old now and is beginning to trust people. It is a beautiful looking dog even if it is a Chihuahua. It has the coloring of a deer so it was named buck. The only problem is that it is the horniest dog ever. It will mate with any thing.

I wonder if Buck the "horn dog" knows that cat spends time in your crock pot.  There's an animated film festival that comes around every so often that focuses on the Sick and Twisted.  One of the shorts is called "horn dog."  If you have a bent sense of humor, (as I gather from recent pix), I think you'd like that short.

Now I have to ask the cultural question.  Is that chihuaha on a Mexican hairless cat?

and the downtown la in the distance from anaheim hills...... i saw it unobstructed from santiago canyon road but had to press on... i have never seen it so clear... perhaps the 60mph winds and overnight rain had something to do with it...

Milwaukee, Wisconsin

This sail boat was being towed so that the owner could restore it. He was in an area known to be rocky and the boat got stuck. The coast gaurd tired about 3 times to pull it out but failed. There is talk about charging $20,000.00 for their sevice. It was battered up in several storms. The lake finally froze and I think that it was cut it up.

Owrstrich, that looks alot like the scene the wife and I just saw a couple of hours ago coming up our driveway. She was driving, I was drinking, I counted 14, she counted 11. I tried to get her to get closer to them to do a buck check in the headlights, but she kinda panicks when she sees them (she's nailed 3 in the last two years, all within a mile of the house, and at least $4000 vehicle damage each time). But I mean we're going uphill in a 1/4 mile driveway at 2 mph... ::)

nodak... the infrequent poster... what is going on up there... snowed in... put another log on the fire...


giz... the more the merrier... wck and the rest of the bunch too...


this is the first race of the season... they will be running 360 wingless sprints and 410 wingless sprints... being from indianapolis you will find us at perris auto speedway when the sprint cars are running as long as we are within a couple hours of the place...

this race is a friday night and saturday night format... so there wont be any down time... action from gates open to the checkers...

what i will do is go score the beast and do the lipton onion soup and cold smoke ahead of time... then i will finish it off in the oven on saturday and ftc it real good and head out for a 3pm arrival... im thinking 3pm would be better... that would give us a couple hours to eat and drink before going inside the track where the beers are $6... also it will reduce my drive time... the later we leave the more screwed up the 91 will be... i can get there in 1 hour if i leave at 2... its 2 hours if i leave at 3... crazy how that works aint it...

it will be a parking lot tailgate... or in this case a flatbed... we can use the bed of our truck as a table to layout the grubb and feast on the beast... i can bring the beast... plates... knives and utensils and beers... you folks can bring nothing or whatever...

lay down the plans... get it on the calender... lets do it...

it was a 7lb smart n final ribb... rubbed with soup mix and fridged for overnight then 4 hours of cold smoke hickory then fridged overnight then dry boated boated at 300 degrees in the oven for 2.5 hours then covered for 1 hour... it was a dry run for perris... its my best effort to date...

O,
I will completely understand your desire to become a charger fan especially since you are basically a CA transplant anyway.  It was a shame the Colts were not able to pull it out but I certainly won't complain.  They had plenty of opportunities and with Payton, you got to think it will happen.  I was surprised the chargers were able to beat the colts with a few key players being second stingers.

Here is a house in Fox Point(Milwaukee), Wisconsin on Lake Michigan. The owner, Mary Nohl, was referred to as "The Witch".
Every holloween kids would make pilgrimages to her houses causing many problems. It got so bad that the police would give tickets to any one that would even stop their car on her street. All she is is an innovative artist.

Post by: bigredsmoker on February 17, 2008, 08:29:27 am
Found this info. very interesting, very rich woman.

Mary Nohl's house in Fox Point, WI features a yard filled with concrete figures of people, animals and dinosaurs. The house itself is trimmed with wooden reliefs of fish and other figures. The property is partly fenced by human profiles. This is all much to the dismay of residents of the upper class neighborhood in which the house is located. Nohl’s reclusiveness kept her from being a commercial artist and her art school background also kept her from Outsider Artist status.
Born in 1914, Nohl graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1938 and spent several years teaching art at junior high schools. She then opened her own commercial pottery studio for 10 years.

Her mother died in 1968 leaving the house and a substantial inheritance to her (Mary was single and had no living siblings). This enabled Mary to make art full time. She began making the sculptures, most from cement and stone, others from tree trunks. The figures include mythic animals, fish, swimmers, Easter Island-influenced massive heads, groups of stylized figures and architectural structures. Panels hold driftwood figures and brightly painted, cut-out wooden patterns decorate the facade of the house. Homemade windmills and wooden silhouettes dangle from tree branches.

Nohl used things that washed up on the beach nearby as well as tree roots, beach sand, stones, glass and tile to make the concrete sculptures. Inside the house, there are hundreds of Surrealistic-influenced oil paintings, mixed media sculptures, and homemade stained glass windows. Walls and carpets are stippled or patterned with a drip technique.

Dubbed "The Witch of Fox Point", rumors spread that she had killed her family and buried them in the sculptures. The fact that she never married or had children added to her "witchy" reputation. High school students from all over began to taunt her and vandalize the property. Mary was forced to surround her property with barbed wire topped chainlink fencing and to put metal grates over her windows. She also chained down many sculptures.

Nohl died in 2001 and left $9.6 million to the Greater Milwaukee Foundation to support local visual arts and arts-education programs. Shortly before her death, she transferred the title to her home and hundreds of finished works to the Kohler Foundation, which has conserved many other art-related sites by other Wisconsin "outsider" artists like Fred Smith. Despite this, the Village of Fox Point wants the art and house removed and in 2005, the property was listed as one of the ten most endangered properties in Wisconsin.

Mary Nohl was a friend of my mother. I believe that she was my mother's sorority mother in college. I also believe that she gave a wedding shower for my wife a long time ago(35 years). I may be wrong on both of those but I have been in the house and have met her. She seemed to be rather down to earth and not arrogant.

there were dozens of them in the bushes... they would scoot across this portion of dirt to the other side where there were more bushes... they would go 2 at a time... once 2 were across the next 2 would go for it... crazy...

Love your posts O.  Keep 'em coming.  All that's missing is a little garlic butter and you've got lunch (actually I'd feed 'em off on some iceberg lettuce first).  Locally they use them in a soup in the spring flavored with wild garlic which grows like a weed here.

i will tell the beast you are glad she has 2 10 gallon jugs...

gizz...

o no... not me... she puked for days though...

monday is our last day in the socal... we will have to meet up next fall...


lq...

i met the sparkler in roswell new mexico on july 7 1947...

since then our paths have crossed over the years at such places as barry goldwater az... china lake ca... tonapa nv... wright patterson oh... nellis nv... edwards ca... white sands nm... and such places...

i saw an ad for a bbq magnifying glass in unpopular science magazine... it claimed it could cook a whole pig in mico seconds with just a little sunlight even on a cloudy day...

i called the phone number in the ad and it was the sparkler... i told him he should spend some money on a bbq machine that left the beast in pieces larger than 50 microns... thats when he scored a bradley...

It was nice meeting up with you this season.  Look forward to the return visit.  Half to get them aliens to give you a break once in a while when you are out of So Cal and beam you over for a Que and Brew.  Easy trails to you and the mickster.

The Mysterious Case of Two Spheres Falling to Earth in Australia and Brazil

Written by Ian O'Neill

Mysterious spheres falling from space in Australia and Brazil (credit: Reuters/Daniel Drehmer at Second Wave)
On the March 24th, a story hit the web from Brazil asking for help identifying a mysterious-looking sphere found in farmland. The black, shiny object appeared to be wrapped in fibrous material and it was hot to the touch. Immediately thoughts of extra-terrestrial origin came to mind…

Today, several news sources covered the discovery of a mysterious spherical object found in the Australian outback last year. The farmer who made the discovery has only just started to make enquiries into what the object actually is.

So are the two objects connected in some way? Are they indeed from outer space?

The answer is "yes", and "yes". But don't go getting too excited, they're not bits from a broken alien spacecraft.

The orb in Brazilian farmland (credit: Daniel Drehmer)

Before their origins are explained, a bit of background: The first story to be released was from Brazil on Monday. Just a small story on Daniel Drehmer's blog, asking "a space geek from Digg" (Digg.com being the social bookmarking site) for help to identify this strange object found by Sebastião Marques da Costa who described the orb as being hot to the touch. Either it has been heated by the Sun, or it had just crashed to Earth. On seeing the object, it does make for good science fiction material. It's a very strange looking thing, one meter in diameter, contrasting with the green countryside.

I was so intrigued by the story, I kept an eye on the blog. The following day, the Second Wave reported that an answer had been found. Obviously the geeks on Digg had been paying attention and identified the object as a Composite Overwrapped Pressure Vessel (or COPV). Put very basically, it's a high pressure container for inert gases. The space shuttle carries COPVs and it seems likely that these containers will be used for a variety of space missions. They are built with a carbon fibre or Kevlar overcoat to provide reinforcement against the vast pressure gradient between the inside and outside of the container.

If the COPVs are so reinforced, it seems reasonable that they may survive re-entry through the Earth's atmosphere.

The Australian mystery orb (credit: Reuters)

So what about our Australian farmer? Looking at the picture, the strange object in the Australian outback has some striking similarities to the Brazilian orb (only a lot more damaged).

Today many news sites picked up on the Australian find (well, last year's find), and call me suspicious, but the timing couldn't be better. The Australian farmer, James Stirton, who found the object made the surprising statement to the Reuters news agency:

well now... we made it 1/2 way up the mountain before we saw the road closed signs and turned around...

so do you mean 1/2 way down the mountain or 1/2 way down the mountain from where we turned around... the latter would be 3/4 way down the mountain or 1/4 way up the mountain...

so in your own words... whats the he11 is yous sayings...

yesterday...

so we met up with the visalia pashnit gang and rode down to bakersfield to meet up with the baskersfield pashnit gang...

ended up doing about 300 miles 2up... the other 10 motobikes were all 1 up... on everything from hooligan rice burners to a 1980s goldwing...

started in the desert...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20CA%20Tulare/Bako/Bako003.jpg)

look... its lizzy...

the foothills...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20CA%20Tulare/Bako/Bako005.jpg)

either over the hill on a mountain pass road... or split the hills on the sierra divide road... which ever is open... after miles of sweepers and switchbacks and sand and rocks and pine needles littering the road... this...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20CA%20Tulare/Bako/Bako028.jpg)

one rider went around the bend to find yesterdays snow melt had frozen over the road... so we headed down the hill and found our way back to tulare... the pashnit riders are a fine bunch of riders... not as fine as the k11og riders... but you get the picture...

so there you go...

Although I am very new to the forum, I personally could care less about the ranking system and how many stars I one day may have. Anyone who posts one liners just to up the post count, needs to save it for the big stuff!
If you feel the need to high five someone with a one liner, why not PM the person.

The one bonus that I have found from the star system is that more stars in most cases means more experience.

Keep up the great smoking guys!

Comment to Lumpy,

  Welcome Lumpy. Glad to have you here. Some people joke about their post count and that is all it is. The "general discussion" and "new topics" are many times not about smoking. There are many interesting posts in these topics. Many are just entertainment but some are for help and encouragement of which much is given. Yes, you can PM someone but in a way we are the Bradley Smoker Family. We have a "funny story of the day topic" and if you have searched through the "running up the post topic" you will find that Owrstrich has posted many travelogue pictures that I look forward to seeing. There are people that post from around the world and it is great to get their viewpoint on things. There have even been people that meet together for a Bradley smoke out and food outing. The forum has a great group of people willing to give help and advice.

 In all the other topics there is good information on using the Bradley smoker of which I am a proud owners. Today I smoked turkey legs for a soup.

  So enough of my ramblings Lumpy. Glad to have you here and I get one more post to my tally.

Brad

True enuff......I cannot (unfortunately) contribute much in the way of smoking.  I like to provide a little brevity, if at all possible, as a way to pay back the smoke kings who so freely give up their knowledge and experience with those of us not-so-skilled in the fine art of smoke.

crater lake or 06-01-08

i called the crater lake and asked if the rim was open... they said the north entrance was closed but the west entrance was open... i asked if the rim was open... they said yes it was open but you had to use the west entrance...

so we got up there with great anticipation of riding the rim and taking it all in... just to be informed that the rim was closed... the confusion was the road was open to the rim village... when i was talking about the rim road that goes around the entire lake... o well...

it was great to ride in the fresh crisp air... taking in all the scenery... you or-a-goons have it going on... mt hood next weekend...

here is our crater lake ride report...

oregon mid-pacific coast 06-08-08...

here you are...

couldnt photog how large this military ship really is... notice that regular size boat on the right... big difference... cant pinpoint what river this is...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast041.jpg)

this place looks like paradise... house between a fresh water lake and the ocean...  a stream running out of the hills to form the fresh water lake... then it trickles out to the ocean... nice...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast080.jpg)

the bridge over the newport harbor...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast087.jpg)

looking from the newport bridge to the newport bay...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast090.jpg)

we saw lotts o fresh catch being unloaded... most eating places looked to touristy... so we kept looking...and we found this place... it was a revolving door... hungry folks in... stuffed folks out...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast092.jpg)

here you got the chowder... the dungeness crab cakes... the dungeness crab cocktail... the local wild fish n fries...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast093.jpg)

strawberry hill... the sea critters where laying out on rocks... the scenery was fantastic...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast120.jpg)

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast128.jpg)

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast118.jpg)

figured it out... why its called strawberry hill...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast130.jpg)

heceta head... the photog cant give it the respect it deserves...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast152.jpg)

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast163.jpg)

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast155.jpg)

like most of the coast... there are day use areas everywhere... usually there is a river flowing out of the hills into the ocean with a parking place and a beach or tide pools or both... this is the rover flowing out at heceta head...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast138.jpg)

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast133.jpg)

too many place to see in 1 day... gonna have to go back...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Coast/OregonCoast168.jpg)

what a day... it ended up just shy of 400 miles...

Post by: owrstrich on June 15, 2008, 07:14:12 pm
found out the shifter was from a mga...

here are some more for you folks... hope they bring back some memories and make way for some more...


the plan was to ride windy ridge at mt st helens... then mt adams...

many feet of snow fell last week so i called the ranger stations to find out how the roads were today... they said the road to windy ridge was washed out and may never open again... they said the road that runs the east side of mt st helens was under 5 feet of snow... they said there were no open routes to mt adams either...

so we head out of longview wa on interstate 5... we take wa 503 to ape cave... its open but its a nightmare... must have been a thousand breeders there... so we keep going on fr 90 and then fr 25...

then we back tracked up interstate 5 to castle rock and wa 504 to johnston ridge...

here you go...

lotts o this up there...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Helens/Kelso115.jpg)

then we found this blocking our way...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Helens/Kelso112.jpg)

and these folks could not speak english... it took a while... but i figured out they had google directions to rainier... so i showed them my map and wrote down how to get there from here...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Helens/Kelso111.jpg)

the rivers were flowing like a mo... the rivers are my favorite... but that crazy wench micki was asleep more than she was awake today... so not any fantastic river photos...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20OR%20Hillsboro/Helens/Kelso109.jpg)


stopped for blueberry cheesecake... got it to go... was gonna stop at a picnic table... here it is after 4 hours in the side bag... lucky it was cold up there...

GOOD AND SIMPLE REASONING!!

A mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from the motor of a Harley
motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.
The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come
take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the garage,
'Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?'
The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic
was working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped
his hands on a rag and asked, 'So Doc, look at this engine.  I open
its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them
back in, and when I finish, it works just like new.
So how come I make $39,675 a year and you get the really big bucks
($1,695,759) when you and I are doing basically the same work?'

The cardiologist paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to
the mechanic...Try doing it with the engine running.

that would be ride into that...

i scored another motobrick for iowa... i did 5,000 miles the past 10 days riding 1 up all over iowa... illinois... missouri... kentucky... indiana... wisconsin...

didnt have a camera to document my adventures because micki took the camera to her sisters...

we got these photos on the way from her sisters to her moms riding 2 up... it was torrential rain and extreme winds... the 4th consecutive day of riding into severe thunderstorms... we just dont get that kind of weather on the west coast... it was refreshing...

we came to ride... and ride we did...

Having once been a 365 2 wheel rider, I can simpathize with the you gotta ride.  Been through a few washings myself.  Most memorable is a freak rain with wind confined to 1/8 mile of road that initially took me from the left side of lane one to the left side of lane 2.  Fortunately no other vehicles on the road.  Gotta watch them little valley wind tunnels.

Post by: owrstrich on July 15, 2008, 05:20:38 am
we rode into and thru it...

there was very little traffic on the wi 60 that morning... the winds had us 20 degrees to vertical most of the time... the rain was so dense that visibility was less than 100 feet... when the conditions are like that you just got to keep up the speed and avoid deep water on the road...

hold on...

scored these from a fellow motobrick riders ride report...

it had been a long few days in heat humidity and rain... im still looking fresh though...

Wow O, fantastic pix.  That is truly Gods country.  I can smell the ocean.  When I lived in the US I used to go camping on Quadra island off of Vancouver island and gather oysters like that.  Yummmm.

O,

If you're in Burlington for awhile, check out the Skagit River Brewing Company in Mount Vernon. They use an offset smoker to make ribs, brisket and a pretter good BBQ platter. Oh yeah, the beers are good too. We were in the area ten days ago after staying a couple of nights in Port Townsend.

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20NV%20Reno/NorCal%2008/Reno137.jpg)

we stopped at the frontier cafe in happy camp... there was a group of 4 waiting on their food... we ordered bisquets & gravy... 45 minutes later... without a coffee or water refill and no food i informed the lady that we were leaving... she said your orders up... so we stayed... it was terrible... a full order was 1 nasty bisquet  cut in half with warm flour milk over the top... one bite and we were out of there... nasty...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20NV%20Reno/NorCal%2008/Reno140.jpg)

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20NV%20Reno/NorCal%2008/Reno200.jpg)

the road turned to goat then to gravel... the gravel was smooth so we proceeded... but the inevitable happened... washboard ruts and thick gravel... we pressed on... then the marine was so thick through switchbacks and dualsport territory but we pressed on... about 20 miles of this total before we hit asphalt again...

right after this 1st curve a sasquatch dressed like a bear ran across the road... didnt get a photo... it happened so fast...

the lost coast brewery in eureka... home of downtown brown... this is some of the best food we have had in california... the stew was stewed in 8 ball porter... micki is still raving about it... the beef sandwich was roasted in downtown brown... simply wonderful... this place is highly recommended...

day 3...

we rolled down the 101 to grizzly bluff to ferndale to ride the lost coast...

the eel river...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20NV%20Reno/NorCal%2008/Reno256.jpg)

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20NV%20Reno/NorCal%2008/Reno257.jpg)

ferndale... looks like a slice of paradise...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20NV%20Reno/NorCal%2008/Reno258.jpg)

mattole road... starts smooth... goes to goat to gravel... back to goat and then opens up to the lost coast... saw 1 other vehicle on the road to the coast...

the lost coast... i guess so... 1 ranch... no other vehicles down here... beauty of a place...

river valley near honeydew...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20NV%20Reno/NorCal%2008/Reno311.jpg)

steel frame wood floor bridge... there were lots of folks around here because they were having a big bbq shindig... smelled good... should have stopped for some local food...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20NV%20Reno/NorCal%2008/Reno315.jpg)

then we found the big trees and rode the avenue of giants...

then to fortuna and the eel river brewery for lunch... my burger sucked... mickis sandwich looks good but the mead was cut too thick and with the grain making it hard to eat... she left one half of it on the plate... it was terrible...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20NV%20Reno/NorCal%2008/Reno329.jpg)

then we took ca 36 to red bluff for the eveining... missed the 140 miles of swigleys sign...  and didnt gat any photos because micki was either sleeping or trying to keep her eyes open...

what a 2 up motoroad that 36 is... it was splendid...

harts cafe in susanville ca... the blue cheese burger was good... the monte cristo was fabulous...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20NV%20Reno/NorCal%2008/Reno441.jpg)

then we headed back to sparks nv on usa 395... nothing to see on the 395... good thing because micki slept most of the way...

our rides start by having to take the motobrick off our truck... putting it back together... checking it all out... that means our rides end with having to take the motobrick apart... just mirrors and bags and misc other stuff ... sling it up... lift it into place sidways behind the rear glass on the truck bed... strap it down...

then off to fernley nv for tuesdays job... 1200 miles... 4 1/2 days... beautiful country... no regrets...

there you are...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20CA%20Tulare/Mineral%20King/MineralKing08017.jpg)

this ride has it all... the desert of the central valley... the picturesque foot hills... and then full on wilderness...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20CA%20Tulare/Mineral%20King/MineralKing08029.jpg)

the smell of pine needles... although very smoggy today... the pine scent prevailed in the cool air climbing to 7200 feet...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20CA%20Tulare/Mineral%20King/MineralKing08030.jpg)

the north facing hills still had some water flowing... the sun wasnt in the best position for good photos...

(http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff192/owrstrich/Ride%20Tales%20CA%20Tulare/Mineral%20King/MineralKing08033.jpg)

So I figure out I have to, make a trip to Portland, OR, to do some troubleshooting problem solving on a "get in/get out" basis.  I'm bummed knowing that I'm not going to have time to check out some of fine microbrewery products.  But I get into terminal A at PDX and I see the Laurelwood Brewery has a spot in the airport.  Fine product and a fine solution to my dilemma.  Pastrami sammie isn't bad either.

I second that McMenamins recommendation. Edgefield is a fantastic place to stay. Great ale, wine, restaurants, pubs, artwork and entertaiment. The hotel is amazing. I went to the McMenamins Spar Cafe in Olympia Wa. in July and I swear they had the best IPA I've ever had. Consig, Portland is an fantastic place for ale, especially in July when it's craft brew month. I was down for a week in July and most good brewpubs had some kind of celebration or promotion happening. Cheers.

I figured that was implicit.  However, I did have the ring in my pocket so there were moments of lucid thought.   ;)

We were actually there visiting her friends.  Pulled her aside at the Marina, and then we had something else to celebrate.

GOTTA LOVE THAT NURSE


A motorcycle patrolman was rushed to the hospital with an inflamed appendix. The doctors operated and advised him that all was well,

However, the patrolman kept feeling something pulling at the hairs in his crotch. Worried that it might be a second surgery
the doctors hadn't told him about, he finally got enough energy to pull his hospital gown up enough so he could look at what was
making him so uncomfortable.

Taped firmly across his pubic hair were three wide strips of adhesive tape, the kind that doesn't come off easily. Written in large
black letters was the sentence:

'Get well soon....from the nurse in the Jeep you pulled over last week

Yes, you are right Bigred and it is considered the staple meat here. I have already done one rack of lamb and a couple of legs and loins and they turned out perfect.

Ever since I have read about some one (whom I think was WCK) doing a complete piglet in the smoker and I have been thinking about doing a full lamb. I have been researching the possibility and it looks good so far. The only minor snag is the internal smoker clearance in apposed to the length of the sheep. But, I am working with my neighborhood butcher on this issue and hopefull we will come up with a solution soon.

Off course I will have a step by step description including pictures.

HR, 

I am looking forward to the "show".  They do a lot of whole hogs around here.  I am not a particular fan of them.  With pork to make sure some of the thicker parts done to a safe temperature, the thinner parts are overdone.  Should not have that problem with the Lamb, besides rare lamb is good eats.

We cook two hogs a year up at deer camp in what is called a "Cajun Microwave". It is a fire proof box that once the pig is seasoned and inserted and the lid is closed you add charcoal to the top of box (outside area) and usually only open once to turn the pig. Very Moist......but no smoke. Basically a roasted pig.

That's a great idea.  I have had some shoulders from one of those and it was good.  Actually, you can put a smoke generator on them and have smoke also.  They sell their own brand of smoke generators on their site, but could probably use any of the others.

This cajun micro was hand built and has been around for as long as I can remember. They did give her some new stainless inside 6-8 yrs ago and some new legs.

It seems to me that there will always be a select few who concern themselves with this post count and the rest of us couldn't give a crap. Till I joined this forum I knew nothing of post counts nor could I care a less. The post count means nothing to me as everyone on here is as valid a person as the next. This seems as though it was something that some pimple face geek came up with for some dungeons and dragon'esk forum to show his superiority via the amount of time he wastes on the internet when he should be out dating and socializing with real people so as to be more able to cope with real life situations. If the post count was to become an issue (and it for the most part doesn't) you could get rid of it because we are all equal in my eyes. And besides if there was someone on here that was inferior in intelligence they should not be discriminated against anyway. Therefore the post count ends up be a form of discriminatory device which we don't need on here because even an idiot can apply smoke to food with a Bradley and produce perfect food. But that is just my opinion which probably doesn't count cause my post count is alot lower than most guys and gals on here.

I have read several different BBQ post and blogs that have reviewed the different types of smokers/grills out there in the world.

Two that I recently read talked about the Bradley Smoker (the pros and the cons) and both said one thing that makes the Bradley standout is the active forum.

One even had a link to the forum.

I know when I got my Bradley and needed help, I got it.

But I also appreciated someone saying "Nice Job" or "Looks Good" almost as much as the help I got.

It would be kinda sad to not be able to say "thanks" to someone that helped you because you were worried

you might piss someone off because you got "a point".

I am all for taking it off. This thread was aimed at me long ago by a small group of "professional and/or expert" smokers who thought I was trying to appear like an expert by running up my post count when they believed that I was a nobody. This is the first and ONLY forum I have ever been on and except for this thread and another one or two threads, it has been a nice experience. This thread has always bothered me. If I recall correctly, this is my first post since the episode and it will be my last.

It is unfortunate that many on here have developed their own little clans and ignore folks outside their own little group. It is also unfortunate that many on here have forgotten that we have some lady members that may have been offended by some recent posts and simply bit their lips instead of complaining and running the risk of being shunned by some like I was when this thread started. I could be wrong, they may have a good sense of humor, but simply decided to not comment.

We are from all walks of life and most of us are experts in our own fields - mine happens to be law. We have at least a couple of chefs on here. I am no where near their level regarding food preparation, but I do a really good job at what I do prepare. Why is this not adequate for some? We have a few on here that are great with electronics and at least a couple that are great writers. We have people from all over the world, multiple ethnic groups and most religions. Why can't everyone simply be accepted as long as their intentions are good. I would rather see a jerk post than someone that is political on here with an ego problem.

As an addition - in case some think I am being over sensative, what makes it worse for me was the pm's that I received. It was much worse than this thread. This thread only added more insult to the pm's by putting it out to the general public.

Why not simply delete the garbage portion and keep the rest? You have done so on other threads that only had portions that were offensive. There are some good posts on this thread. If it is keep all or delete all then I will vote delete all because this subject keeps popping up when the new folks get around to reading it. I would hate to think that some of the new folks will be afraid of posting too much.

Also I would recommend doing away with post counts altogether and simply reflect "Forum Member Since ____ ".

Just my 2 cents worth but I totally agree with Wildcat. As a member of a few cooking forums I find more then a few that run up their count just to look good.  If one knows the subject it will show when they post, so why is the counter needed other than to look good?

I would agree with this comment as there are some great pics and amusing comments here, though the voting options of yes / no do not cover it.

Post count is irrelevant and like the member status nothing more than a bit of fun.  ;)

However, I do think it is important to be able to identify the "newbies" easily to make sure they get welcomed into the "family", current members always go out of their way to make them feel at home which is nice and we need to make sure that is not lost.  :)

Hello Members
I have gone back a read some of the posts in here there are some that are worth keeping and there is a lot that should be deleted, as well as the name of this topic.
There have been a couple of questions asked about other options we have.

I will do my best to try and answer them.

 Q ="Why not simply delete the garbage portion and keep the rest? You have done so on other threads that only had portions that were offensive."
 A =  Who would decide which post is garbage , I could see that causing to many problems, everybody has a different opinion on what a bad post is.

 Q = I wonder if there is away to record the post count but not publish it. If it just simply said "newbie or member extraordinaire.
 A =  Not that I can do with the options in the admin area if it can be done it would have to be in the code of the SMF.

We do have some other options.

I can move this entire topic which allows me to Rename it as well, then it can be left open, ( all the posts would remain as they are)
I can just leave it as is and just lock it (no more posting in it)
Or we have the original options of Delete it or keep it.
I think in fairness to all the members I will revise the original poll
with the new options and we will have a revote

No, you're absolutely correct; camaraderie and information/assistance are what it's all about on the forum.  If you start topics or post replies in that spirit you'll have a great time and learn a lot.  The issue here is a thread that started almost three years ago talking about people who posted without any reason other than to run up their post count and get more stars next to their name (Bad dog!  Bad, bad, bad!).

In any event, welcome to the board - enjoy.

"The issue here is a thread that started almost three years ago talking about people who posted without any reason other than to run up their post count and get more stars next to their name (Bad dog!  Bad, bad, bad!)."

Not exactly accurate. The issue here is a thread about me positing " ;D" on jokes and comments, and "Nice job" and "concur", etc. on a lot of posts without further comments (that really did not need anything else added). A select few thought I was posting smilies and one liners to run up my post count to look important (which was totally not true). The person that initially wrote the thread stated that the group he was being a spokesperson for would not be posting like before. He was right. Many of those old timers rarely, if ever, post anymore.

"Who would decide which post is garbage , I could see that causing to many problems, everybody has a different opinion on what a bad post is."

What a cop out Brian. It is obvious that one or more members belittling another member that is obviously not in a joking manner is a direct violation of the policies that YOU set up on the conduct of forum members. You have made these decisions on other threads. Granted, it happened before you got involved, but it is still there.

There will always be a few that will abuse anything if you give them the opportunity.  Overall, I like the post count because it tells you a little about how long a person has been, if they are a contributor (yes some could be junk posts) and who is active on the forum.

Just my 2 cents.

I remember when this post started Wildcat and decided to not get involved since I had my own issues with the person that was the "spokesperson" for this group of people angry that you were posting one line responses.

I for one voted this topic should stay. There are some posts in this thread that are worth reading and that content shouldn't be removed. Also, this thread has turned into more of a running joke for the current forum members.

This forum is not like any other community I have been involved in and not only are the members here posting useful information but also having a conversation with friends so short responses like "nice job, "good work", looks good" are perfectly acceptable in my opinion.

Post Count +1 :)

I would like to keep most of the content of this thread also - I would just like to see the bull crap part of it go away.

I always ignore this thread, but when I saw the name change it moved me to actually open since my last post (so far back I can't remember). I just came in to case my vote.

I would hang on to post counts, whether you rank by post counts or not, not that it really matters. I was just bound and determined not to be a "newbie" forever!  I didn't start here as early or hang out here as much as on my other daily forum, C-Brats (http://www.c-brats.com), a forum for owners of C-Dory boats.  Here is a copy and paste from that one! What would that make me here, a deity or something?  ;D

The only reason I ever looked at this was for the posts from the member on a motorcycle road trip. The pics were all fantastic! I shared these with many of my ex riding buddies and they all enjoyed them very much. I do not remember his name though.

I read this Thread when I started coming to this Forum.

Never really felt like it was a big deal, but then it wasn't directed toward me.

After the initial start and on thru the Thread until recently a post by possibility

someone who probably wishes they wouldn't have posted it, This is some great

late nite reading.

Do we eliminate a part of this Forum's History?

I've read a lot of this thread and think that is  contains a lot of useful and personal information which I have learned from both topics and individual thoughts,

However it is a large, very large thread, I think it should be saved as an archive. Those who want to read it have the ability to read it, those who don;t  well, that's up to them.
It is a very large thread that if you don't keep up with it, will ignore it.

Just my .02

I was hoping for the lock and save option. I kinda liked Johnny's travels.

The "Save" votes got divided too many diferent ways to survive the one "No" way.

Until I have more time to review this entire topic I have decided to lock this topic from any further posts.
I feel there are more good posts in this topic than bad ones
