    My sixteen year old Lennox quit last January, just as the "Polar Vortex" descended upon us.
    Managed to keep the inside temp at 50F or above by using two electric space heaters and

    Our 15 pound bird is currently swimming merrily in 350F oil outside. It will be done in about
    20 minutes. I'll let it "rest" for a while before I hack into it. My, I'm getting

    The oil our bird is currently immersed in outside has been used several times. I store it in my
    basement...relatively cool. It is well over a year old...and just as good as it was on Day One.

    The only daughter of four came home about 2 hours ago. Then, the wife and daughter decided we'd

    HUNDRED-SIXTY turkeys! He bought and resurrected a commercial smoker. He sells these smoked
    birds and gi...

    As I posted previously, I brined a turkey breast and smoked it. Very flavorful...and salty. I
    believe that almost all frozen turkeys are injected with a saltwater solution. The next turkey
    I smoke wil...

    Now I can smell cigarette smoke in the middle of a parking lot from a car 4-5 spaces away. It
    makes me gag!Yuppers! On a nice warm day, when I'm riding my motorcycle in traffic, I can
    easily tell what...

    The Bad News: I live SEVENTEEN MILES south of the Wisconsin/Illinois state line, and cannot buy
    any New Glarus beer in any store/convenience mart near me. The Good News: I live only SEVENTEEN
    MILES so...

    I'll be deep frying two birds on Thanksgiving. One we will eat; the other I will carve up, the
    carcass will get boiled for turkey stock, and the meat and stock will be sent home with
    daughter #2. Both...
