    MikeUSMC 2021

    What’s up, gang! This isn’t going to be much a GLOG this year; more of me just popping in and dropping a few pictures here and there, when I have the time (remember ;) ) Had a rough couple of years in the pepper department. Overtime (or night shift) at work for the past 2 years caused me to...

    Been gone for almost a year :shocked:

    What’s up, Pepper People! Been working 6 days a week since last September and it’s been tough to find 5 minutes of free time every once in a while, haha. Anyway, it’s good to be back (hopefully for a while!), and it’s great to see a lot of familiar faces still holding down the fort 👍🏻 The new...

    smokers Oklahoma Joe Longhorn Charcoal/Gas Combo

    Does anybody here have one of these? Or know somebody who does? I*ve never owned a charcoal grill before, and my gas grill is on its way out (rusting interior). I*m in the market for a new grill, and was going to get a some sort of Weber kettle, but my wife wants something with propane for the...

    MikeUSMC 2019 Grow

    Finally got around to soaking seeds this morning :party: Still not sure what the final quantity of each of these is going to be, but most of these will be multiples; x2, x3, and some possibly x4. I'm aiming to keep it under 40 plants, total. This will be my biggest Grow to date, and my 6th year...

    Jamaican Jerk Dry Rub (wanted) NOT MARINADE

    Title says it all. Anyone have a "go to" recipe for a Jerk dry rub? For wings, ribs, whatever. Even just to sprinkle on a burger or something. It'd be nice to be able to grab a spice shaker out of the cabinet, instead of having to break out the blender for a marinade every time. Just something...

    MikeUSMC 2018 Grow

    Well, I'm about 2 weeks behind when I usually start, but I've been too damn busy lately. Once again, 'scaling back' my grow to about a dozen plants just ain't gonna happen, no matter how many times I tell myself that ;) My 5th Season is underway, and Here's my list for 2018: These will be in 5...

    Any Pumpkin Carvers here?

    I've always had a bit of an artistic background (mostly prefer just pencil drawing), and for the past two years, I've been trying to get creative with pumpkin carving. There's tons of videos online for people who get REALLY into it, using power tools and stuff (jigsaws, Dremel tools, etc.), and...

    "Land Ho!" 38 Main Street (Route 6A) in Orleans, MA (Cape Cod) Great food and drink! "The Cape Cod Reuben." I guess they're pretty well known for this sandwich, and I can see why! It was absolutely fantastic! Fried fish, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, coleslaw on pumpernickel. Served with a bag...

    MikeUSMC 2017 Grow

    A little late in the season to start a glog probably, but I figure if I want to trade seeds with some of you guys at the end of the year, at least you'll know I'm not full of shit when I say I have stuff to trade ;) Anyway, I had a pretty rough start this year. Started my seeds mid-February...

    Embedding videos on iPhone in "Desktop" mode?

    Like the title says, on iPhone in Desktop/Full Version (or whatever) mode, not "Mobile" mode. I understand there's more "options" when you're logged in on a PC (from what I've heard, anyway). I think Boss said that the "Full Editor" isn't actually as "full" on a mobile device, but... For the...

    Cutting Board/Block Maintenance

    I got my first "Boos Block" cutting board (20x15x2.25", hard maple) a few weeks ago. Inside the wrapping, it said that it was already treated with their "Mystery Oil" and Board Cream. The first time I used it, I washed it (by hand) with light dish soap, let it dry, carved a brisket, washed it...

    Hey, what's up everybody! I already know quite a few people here from other pepper forums, and I've been lurking here long enough that feel like I know a lot of you other guys/gals already. Anyway... Mike from CT here. Born and raised in CT (no, we're not all snobby pricks, haha), I only left...
