  1. All great info posted so far. Also check out https://amazingribs.com/, it has a wealth of info.
  2. Cooks Illustrated reviewed them in November https://www.cooksillustrated.com/equipment_reviews/1854-multicookers-electric-pressure-cookers?incode=MCSCD00L0&ref=new_search_experience_13 The winner was the Fagor Lux LCD Multicooker and just plain Fagor Lux Multicooker http://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XCR2BNT/?tag=cioequippilot-20 "Best Buy" was the GoWISE USA 8-Quart 10-in-1 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B013TBYQ5Q/?tag=cioequippilot-20 Instant Pot was only recommended with reservations: "This machine did a good job pressure cooking, making rice, and searing, but its slow cooking function takes so long that it makes some recipes not even worth attempting. Small-volume recipes, thinner soups, or more delicate cuts of meat are fine, but thick, large-volume recipes like stews and roasts take an insane amount of time: After 11 hours of cooking beef stew on high, the meat was still chewy, the carrots crunchy, and the potatoes raw. Cooking was unevenly concentrated in the bottom of the pot, where the heating element is. Even when we tried using the “high” setting for any slow-cooker recipes calling for low heat, they still took a very, very long time. This model also runs a little hotter under pressure, but this was easy to fix; we simply subtracted a few minutes from the cook time. Lastly, its operating instructions were a bit confusing and it had metal on its lid that got really hot."
  3. Thanks everyone for the advice thus far. It's a Land Rover Discovery Sport and the lease is through Chase.
  4. We are 1 1/2 years into a 3 year lease for my wife, and she unexpectedly started a new job last summer so now we are going to go WAY over the mileage restriction. Is there a way to get out of this or renegotiate?
  5. This is exactly what I did, arrives today. Thanks!
  6. I don't want to carry while skiing, I just want to have it with me in VT and want to understand the best place to keep it while skiing if not carrying. Sounds like locked in the car in a safe is the best bet. Going to Okemo.
  7. I'm headed up to Vermont next month and liking my constitutional rights, I have the same question. Aside from HE's pack suggestion, nobody else carries while skiing? OK but if I bring my pistol on the trip, what do I do with it while skiing if not carrying? Doesn't seem like a good idea to leave it in the room (staying overnight multi-nights), or just leave it locked in the room safe? I'll be traveling from NJ to VT up 287/87 through NY state (avoiding NYC) so as long as I follow FOPA I'm ok?
  8. Quality reasonably priced options are: Scope: 1-6 or 1-8 Vortex Strike Eagle Red Dot: Holosun HS515CU These are what I run and they serve me well.
  9. +1 for the Safariland ELS belt system. It's worked well for me.
  10. My equipment of choice: Bonavita https://www.cooksillustrated.com/equipment_reviews/1405-best-coffee-maker-automatic-drip?incode=MCSCD00L0&ref=new_search_experience_15 Grinder https://www.cooksillustrated.com/equipment_reviews/638-coffee-grinders?incode=MCSCD00L0&ref=new_search_experience_16 Coffee https://www.blackriflecoffee.com/collections/dark-roast/products/just-black-coffee-blend
  11. Love how my Springfield XD(M) 5.25" .45 shoots. Curious about the Walther PPQ .45.
  12. +1 on the Pechters! My father grew up in Harrison, I know it well. DT where did you get your whole packer?
  13. For what it's worth ... I put the Trijicon HD Night Sights https://www.trijicon.com/na_en/products/product1.php?id=HDNS (got them as a gift) on my Glock 26. Trying to do a self install, I ordered the nylon punch set from Brownells but had a hell of a time punching in the new rear sight, I wasn't able to get it past half way. I went and ordered the NCStar rear sight tool https://www.ncstar.com/optics-acc/tools/handgun-tools/vtuprs-univ-rear-sight-adjust-tool for $44 figuring I would have to spend at least that to get a gunsmith to install, and it worked perfectly. The sight pushed right in with a little effort. The Trijicon is great, but isn't any better then the Ameriglo from what I can see.
  14. Thanks ... now I am going to need to place a sausage order. https://www.kreuzmarket.com/order-menu/sausage/original-sausage/
  15. Because they're not the same, different styles. Carolinas favor pork while Texas is all about beef. You'll find 3 different sauces in SC: vinegar based near the NC border, mustard based in a central swath running NW to SE, and sweet tomato near GA. Texas tends to be less about the sauce and while it's tomato based it's also thinner and not sweet.
