@achewood I am composing a tone poem about eagles, lawnmowers, and Ted Nugent. It is composed only of the sounds of those things.

I also got my smoke on this weekend. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bi_9Zvyl5PE/

The pig was a tad disappointing. My smoking rig runs a little too hot. It was cooked through, but would have benefited from a lower temperature and another hour or two. Good smoke flavor, but it didn't have that rip-it-up-with-two-forks consistency you want.

The wings, on the other hand, may become a staple. I thawed them in the bag, dumped a bunch of spice rub right in there (Rudy's Rub from San Antonio) and flopped it around. Smoked for about 90 minutes, no turning or moving (so they can be done on one set of coals). I offered a variety of sauces, but most of our guests ate them as-is.

"Revolutionary Road." Read a few chapters, then I went "I hate these people and I do not care what happens to them."

I found a thread of that sort... from 2004.
Anyway, a friend and I argued about whether I could give him a ticket for a baseball game, and finally I e-mailed it to him with "Take take take. You take."

Did we have a thread for "Achewood-isms you use in your everyday life?"

In my experience that term is used frequently as a defense against someone is trying to talk them out of doing something stupid.

I tend to use it as a reason to NOT talk someone else out of doing something stupid. "He's a grown-ass man, I don't need to tell him what to do."
