Good load of juniper. I prefer it. Burns clean smells good. Puts out good heat.

MmmMmmm! Sounds Great... For your (alt) consideration:

- Large Pork shoulder
- several large cloves garlic
- course (almost 'rock') sea salt
- very course ground pepper
- Large can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 16 oz (min) bottle of Coca-cola - 'Classic', in Glass, with real sugar is best (ie: 'Mexican' Coke, NOT 'diet' or 'zero' anything, yukk..)
- 3-4 Whole cinnamon sticks..
- 1-2 bay leaves
- cilantro

..Slice the pork in a few various spots / Insert cloves of garlic, press / rub-in course sea salt, ground coarse pepper; put in crock pot w/ condensed milk, Coke, cinnamon, bay leaves and cilantro, and top-up w/ water; Simmer 8-10 hrs / however you usually prefer for your own Pulled-pork prep... Shred, and add (whatever..) BBQ sauce / smoke flavor, etc you like to add to your base. This makes (imho..) Amazing pulled-pork..

(PS, this recipe also makes an Awesome base for Chili.. Just add whole crushed tomatoes, onion, beans-of-choice, corn, some masa-flour to thicken.... and of Course... Beer...

It is worldwide in earthquake zones, but I am fortunately in British Columbia where the main subduction fault is 200 miles out off the coast in the ocean so perhaps more damaging to our infrastructure near the city of Vancouver and surge from tsunami . They have not recorded a fault line close to my home but since moving there have been a few small quakes with epicentres very close and you certainly know it is an earthquake so perhaps there are faults not verified .

I don't have any apples but I have plenty of pecans and walnuts. I need to find me one of those 'makers'.

Started up and broke in the new Harbor Freight 2000 watt inverter generator. Would have gone with the Honda like we had before but we are watching our pennies until the house is finished. I have been running it for about an hour every three to four hours and it seems to be doing quite well.

Sorting out a bag of bags. Handy when you need them.

Care to share the recipe? What flavor profile is the target? Did you add beef or pork fat as venison is very lean.

Bought a boom truck, which will make a couple planned construction tasks much easier.
Very low hours & miles. Bough at an auction for almost for scrap metal prices.

I used ďThe sausage makerĒ Venison Sausage seasoning, instacure #1, hickory salt from Nusts.com and chili powder. I followed the recipe off the back of the Venison seasoning package. I added 2 tablespoons each of the hickory salt and the chili powder. Since this was only the first time I made sausage solo and with manual tools, I decided to use the simplest recipe I could. I intend to make actual summer sausage and some Andouille next from some recipes i have.

I am getting an electric meat grinder with a sausage stuffer attachment to do those. I would try it manually but man what a pain it was, especially with the stuffer I was using, I could only do a single sausage with each stroke because of all the leakage around the piston.

You must've bought that just before the big rush. Everybody's sayin' that HF's been out of 'em for a couple of days. Saturday there's supposed to be a parking lot sale with those units like yours for $439. If they're in stock then, I bet they'll go quickly. By then I may make a run to town to fill some gas cans. Might have to go by and see about pickin' up a pair if they have 'em. Next PSPS those things would probably sell for twice the price to those who haven't taken advantage of the next opportunity when they're in stock.

1st, its a hobby, as I enjoy breeding, training & racing them.

However in a long term grid down situation, they are excellent messengers to/from our rural home to our BOL.
Or, from anywhere within about 400 miles to our BOL.

Carrying a microSD card, they can transfer a significant amount of data.

Someone could hack your phone, listen in on SW comm's, or triangulate your radio transmission position.
Not so with a pigeon carrying a message.

Pigeon droppings also make good high nitrogen garden fertilizer.

They are also "edible" should the need arise.

Yeah, I had a friend that decided he needed one yesterday and there wasn't any to be found anywhere (although Sportsman's Warehouse sent out a text that they had Honda generators back in stock). Bought some ethanol free gas yesterday evening, OUCH!
