I used this site - - went with a "Great" build, but upgraded the CPU to an intel i5 quad

this seemed li...

Just made this for my family this evening - turned out great! Good instructions, very easy to
follow. For being a pretty simple recipe, the flavor is really good. Two of the kids said to

Posted in thread: Best woods to smoke mutton? on 10-19-2015 at 01:40 PM

Heat gun, aluminum dog food bowl, and a couple colanders to toss the roasted beans to get rid
