Some songs recorded in the past year or so will deliberately includes static-y pops, so it sounds like you're listening to a vinyl record. I hate that. Those pops are not "charming" or nostalgic. ...

After all the stereotypes, I was shocked at how friendly and aware people in NYC were, the few times I've visited. I deal with way more rude-in-an-oblivious-kind-of-way people where I live, which is...

I'm a guy, and I jumped out of the way just this morning when others were waiting for the sink. I agree that upbringing has a lot to do with it, but it's not limited to girls. Probably girls are...

Oh, it's entirely possible you DO work with monsters like that. You just might not share a restroom with them.

(I'm assuming men are more likely to do this.)

Where do you keep all these?? I have an Egg, a Weber Genesis and a Backwoods Party Smoker. My wife would shoot me if I bought any others. We have a big stamped concrete patio, so I've got room for...

We have some brands in my area that are fairly thin. Fischer Mellwood, maybe?

But you can make them thinner by stretching them a bit.

Also, I think it helps if you minimize any overlap of...

My rice cooker has an option for cooking porridge. I used that for steel cut oats, and it gunked up the part at the top that handles steam release, making for a big pain to clean. I guess I should...

Like others, I store pans in mine.

Wouldn't you have to rotate them, then, to have any chance of crisping the bacon? Or do you not plan to wrap them?

If you did have to rotate them, then you would have cream cheese dripping out...

Yep, hickory is a good one that works well on just about anything.

So what about when a flare-up gets above the Grill Grate? Can it turn into an ongoing fire, as often happens with ribeyes?

Oo, I haven't seen that model before. Very intriguing.

Does it really prevent flare-ups? I can see where it would help, but I'd be surprised if it could eliminate them altogether.
