    Anyone follow Formula 1?

    I'm generally a motorsports fan, but I just can't get into F1. Since much of the race schedule was canceled last year, rather than watch drivers play video games, I watched the entire WEC season 2019, including all 24 hrs of Le Manns. I found that to be very interesting. F1, however, should...

    Today's Smoke 2021

    I used to love every HdM I smoked, but I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s time for us to see other people.

    It was just cold enough yesterday to warrant pressure cooked lamb shanks with roasted potatoes, carrots and turnips.

    Gauging interest in a pipe tobacco for CC pass?

    To be fair, if it's a cigar and pipe pass, then folks are free to take cigars and put pipe tobacco. It doesn't sound like that's really what you want to achieve.

    COVID-19 vaccine, you getting it?

    I have really enjoyed most of the posts in this thread. I find it refreshing that we can have a discussion about a controversial topic and mostly keep it civil. I have learned a lot from everyone's input and I'm glad this thread is still going. There are no self-evident facts surrounding...

    Smoker recipes please?

    I did some chicken leg quarters in the smoker recently. I smoked them at 275 for 90 mins, then finished them in the broiler for 4-5 mins to crisp the skin. I didn't use a rub or brine; just added salt and pepper prior to smoking.

    Broiled swordfish, cherry tomatoes, red onion, roasted golden beets, capers and dill from my garden over wilted spinach with lemon juice. 2 mins of prep, 10 mins to cook, 1 happy wife!

    COVID-19 vaccine, you getting it?

    Wow, that was really interesting. He clearly has an anti-"vax" bias, but it gives me a perspective I haven't heard before. I'd like to see the data on the animal studies he referenced.

    COVID-19 vaccine, you getting it?

    Jeff, I had the same reaction when I first read this, but on closer inspection I saw the his company is only requiring vaccinations to work from the office. Those who haven't been vaccinated have to continue to telework. According to the legal advice my company is getting, this is permissible...

    COVID-19 vaccine, you getting it?

    Thanks. From what our lawyer is advising, I think they are on firm ground to open the office only to those who are vaccinated so long as they allow those who aren't to telework. That situation can't go on forever, so eventually, it will come to a head, but as an initial position, I think it's...

    COVID-19 vaccine, you getting it?

    What state do you work in? My team at work is spread across several states and Japan, and we've been discussing with our company lawyer if it is legal or not to mandate vaccines. California has a very different take on worker's rights than many other states, and we're finding there's no...

    COVID-19 vaccine, you getting it?

    I really appreciate this thread, as I've wanted to discuss these issues with others but it's been so politically and emotionally charged that I haven't dared to bring this up among coworkers or friends. Thanks for everyone's efforts to keep this discussion free of those landmines while we...

    COVID-19 vaccine, you getting it?

    I got Anthrax round 1 after a weekend of 40 shots at the allergists, culminating in five lethal doses of bee/wasp venom because I had a reaction to a bee sting one day while I was running. My arms were so sore that I took the Anthrax shot in my stomach. Not the smartest choice I ever made...
