    rusound and nuvo are half the price and just as good. the sonance amps are huge money for what they are. they can be replaced by a crown amp that is like 200 dollars. and your mono price even cheaper and good enough choice. the sub used by all these companies i'm pretty sure are made in the...

    I have to do a reverse sear bone in rib roast next few weekends. I didn’t want to chance it tonight. No idea how long it would have taken. I still think after this summer the reverse sear is a bullet proof method. Like you Sous vide guys.

    Just got a pellet grill - looking for grilling and smoking suggestions

    There is nothing better than ThermoWorks. I always talk about them here. My thermo pen is 15 plus years old and still just as accurate. I also now have the signals setup for use in my bge and whenever else I grill. Signals is awesome. App is stable also. The wires can handle crazy hot temps...

    Walt Disney Classics

    Thanks guys. I have to throw a pic up of how I lighted it up. I used under cabinet strips down the sides of each cabinet left and right. That way I have even lighting from top to bottom so the pieces down block top down light.

    Walt Disney Classics

    Third pic. The Cinderella coach. I put it inside there. Lol. I guess what separates this collection from any other ceramic line is they don’t use filler. They use gravity and physics to give movement other cheaper lines use filler clay as grass, trees, thicker clothing to give stability. Disney...

    I have been saying this for so many years. We r there pretty much with how Covid has pretty much made us only be able to communicate forcthe most part over video. It’s pretty sad. I still believe our next step to the decay of society is straight up walking dead without the zombies.

    Our pool house is off to the side like u have planned. 3 sides closed in. So far the 3 sides do such a good job keeping the elements out. I’m in a different climate than u. We ended up with 1000 square feet of space which had been perfect for us. I looked into the sliding doors like they use out...
