#3333451 Overdue Huddle debate: Gas or charcoal?

Posted by SmokinwithWilly on 24 April 2015 - 06:23 PM

Do you prefer IR over traditional gas? More difficult to clean or about the same?
I'm currently in the market for a new grill, but I don't know anyone personally who has an IR grill.

It really depends on what you are doing. IR cooks a lot faster than a traditional grill. If I'm putting grill marks on something or doing a Pittsburg steak, it gets the job done. Don't cook anything on it with sugar in the marinade or you will be cleaning forever. It has to be seasoned constantly.

Personally, when I do steak I use a kosher salt and cracked pepper crust with a pat of bacon fat because it crusts really well in a pan. Medium rare beef tenderloin. That's a little piece of heaven right there.

#3330531 Greg Hardy suspended 10 games

Posted by SmokinwithWilly on 22 April 2015 - 03:38 PM

Panthers got fugged last year having Hardy mock suspended and still having him count against the cap, and will be fugged this year because we won't be able to get a comp pick for his ass. 


NFLPA will appeal this and win. Interesting though how the one person who wasn't actually found guilty in a court of law will receive the longest suspension.

So they haven't played on thanksgiving before so I have never seen them play on turkey day. I would never put that together.

#3328305 What will you NOT drink?

Posted by SmokinwithWilly on 20 April 2015 - 10:37 PM

Guess who isn't getting a Christmas card this year. Next you'll tell us you don't drink Olde E or Colt 45.

I might have a problem

Don't forget the King Cobra.

#3328202 Hardy Files Petition to Expunge Record

Posted by SmokinwithWilly on 20 April 2015 - 08:37 PM

Should have read the article:
"Hardy's attorney, Charlotte-based Chris Fialko, confirmed the filing Monday."

And AP was fully reinstated without a suspension and there was a poo ton more evidence in that case, involving a child, mind you. Hardy should be reinstated without suspension as well.

Goodell will have none of that poo. It might tarnish his otherwise perfect image.

#3327831 Toyota RAV4

Posted by SmokinwithWilly on 20 April 2015 - 02:31 PM

My wife has the v6 RAV 4 and loves it. Has plenty of power and gets decent gas milage at 23/28 mpg. Her's is an 06 with 100k miles on it and it still runs like a champ. I know there was a period in the production of RAV 4's when they went through a lot of problems. I want to say it was 08-10, but I'd double check to be sure. My mother-in-law got one of them and finally got rid of it because it had so many issues, all under warranty though. 


The only real down side I have seen from RAV 4's is they eat tires like crazy. My wife is almost through her 3rd set. The last set I bought were 80k mile tires and she got 29 out of them. It seems to be a common issue from every tire guy I have talked to. 


Just my $.02.

Here's what I don't understand about many who claim that the Civil War was about the freeing of slaves. At the time of the outbreak of the war, slavery was alive in the northern states. While it was a drop in the bucket compared to the southern states, it still existed. It continued until the 13th amendment in 1865 in the northern states that slavery was completely abolished. If the Civil War was truly about freeing the slaves, as I have heard so many people claim, why didn't the northern states free all of their own at the outbreak of the war?


I don't understand how you can fight a war to end slavery, granted the south fired shots first, while still allowing slavery in your own territory. It doesn't make sense to me. 


I do not believe in any way that slavery should have existed. I do believe that the institution of slavery was headed out the door sooner than later, and that the socioeconomic impact of freeing the slaves led to the war. Slavery was a terrible time in this nation's history that has left wounds that I'm not sure can ever be completely healed, no matter how much we grow as a nation.

#3327185 What are You Drinking Right Now?

My wife has been trying to impress on me the benefits of coconut water. So I compromised. I'm currently drinking a Malibu and cranberry juice.

Skip Bayless is about to have a heart attack:

Skip Bayless @ RealSkipBayless

Tim Teb*w was just signed by the one NFL coach who will give
him a real chance to do what he does best. Thank you, Chip

I've been closely following the Teb*w-to-Eagles signing and will
provide details tomorrow at 10 a.m. E, ESPN2.

The Eagles just became the NFL's most interesting team.

In 1st full season as starter, Teb*w took 1-4 team to div title,
won playoff game, had NFL's best QBR last 5 mins. DESERVES

Someone get that man some Kleenex and hand lotion. It's going to be a long night for him.

It's pretty simple bait and switch politics. Politicians keep the majority of the voting populace fighting each other for the scraps while they do whatever they want. If the people of this country stopped fighting long enough, maybe they would realize how they are being used and we could have real change in this country for the betterment of the people.
