    Used to have run applicants down to Military Entrance Station at Wilkes Barre, Pa. from Potter County and downtown Shinglehouse when I was on shore duty. Would have to leave at 0100 to have them on deck by 0600. Don't get me started, they all make me laugh and love Michael Scott. Even though Dunder Mifflin Paper Company was supposed to be in Scranton but was filmed in Cali, ugh. When office space and Michael Scott collide on a Multi Function Printer this is much truer to real life...



    No your not in the minority I mentioned it earlier :thumbsup: But yeah maybe we are in the minority, however I am used to that :D

    Is the green piece on the top pic the antenna sticking out of the front? then the same looking piece on the pic in one below is the antenna hole? Then then black piece below that should plug the antenna (small end)? or am I looking at it wrong?

    That appears to be a diagnostic ground. Not at all the connector.

    Ribs may have to take a back seat this weekend- wife wasn't able to get to the store yesterday, and on the way to meet a friend, my @$%%&$%& truck decided to eject #4 cylinder (passenger side, middle) spark plug out of the engine entirely, taking the coil with it.

    Somewhere along the line before I got the truck, someone must have overtightened the plug into the aluminum head. I initially panicked, but then realized what was going on and remembered an old trick to keep chips out of an assembly when tapping a hole (in this case for a timesert/helicoil)- wheel bearing grease. Apply to the flutes of the tap, and take many shallow cuts. So I did so, taking 5, 1/2 turns each time before backing it out, wiping off the grease and chips, and spraying with brake clean before repeating. Took about 30 minutes of work, but went quite well. Luckily my son works at Oreilly auto parts, so I get his discount on parts- still a $120 job with the purchase of a coil, 6 plugs, 14-1.25 spark plug thread repair kit, grease, brake cleaner, and a ong-nosed blowgun to make sure I got all the chips out of the engine (though in fairness easily 99% of them were entrapped in the grease).

    Could have been sooo much worse. I was envisioning a $1000 repair bill, since it's a DOHC engine. Of course I'd do the work myself, but don't really have that kind of time at the moment. All the more reason to start upgrading my S10 so I can drive it if need be.

    But back to BBQ- I will have to go to the store today and see if I can find any decent racks left at Publix that aren't frozen.

    Is that fake grass or do you fertilize like a mofo?

    God, yes. With all of the rain we have been getting, and the fact I live in what is basically a backfilled swamp, my grass is basically drowning in mud.

    It sure has been a wet winter so far. Unfortunately, I think we're going to get another round of rain this weekend. But that won't stop me from smoking some pork tomorrow.

    On the topic of dogs, I saw the satellite image of my home and my yard looks terrible!

    Ya I was looking at them trying to decide which one I would want and then went to accessories and saw the price. INSANE

    May need to figure out how to make your own board to go in it. Total BS that with the cost it doesn’t come built it.

    Right?! I'm hoping someone has done it. I'm sure a kit from another company may work... But want some confirmation prior to trying that.

    I want to email and bitch but that won't change anything.I'd be OK with 150, but 300 isn't worth it. That's a lot of meat for the pit. Or another Waguy brisket :rofl:

    I'm really liking this idea with the raspberry pi. It ought to be relatively simple to address, too. I'd be surprised if there wasn't already code on Sourceforge or similar to do this very thing.

    Ya I can see $100-$150 for an add-on like that but to think $300 is fine to charge is out of hand. I was looking at Fast Eddy's pits yesterday also, seem to be pretty high end and they included WiFi lol.

    Yeah, the PEC1000 was on my short list, but I didn't like the internal layout. It's just absurd that $1500+ pits can't include a $10 accessory, but it's business and makes sense for them. Just sucks for us

    I've got the probe board 1/2 built already (just need to add the 8 connectors lol) and I've got a Pi 3 and a Pi Zero, not sure which I'm going to use yet. I've got the touch display also. I've found some code I'm going to modify and try out. I hope to do it in the next few months depending on if I can get the other projects around the house done so I can spend some time.

    Oh don't start me. I rescued a Lab/Aussie mix a few months ago after my wife's old Lab had to be put to sleep (ok he was our dog, and I cried like a little baby while driving him to the appointment. And in the death room. And on the way home. And a little something in my eyes now, though it's been a year to the week). Little bastard is insane for a ball, and has run a racetrack into the grass/mud in my back yard. He's lucky he's a sweetheart and I love him.
