    Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    At rest in the cooler now, tasting in a couple 11 hours 11 minutes to 175 where probe is

    Slowly I climb. It's after noon time for........

    Cables, Coffee, and Cocktails

    Well not so fast; the instructions were wrong about hardware stack up on the number of washers on each bolt and the darn thing wouldn't light. A call to Rec Tec and customer support ran thru the diagnostics. A re-seat of the ceramic heater cured that and it was good to go. Comes with the company owner's personnel cell number. Holding a steady temp (lazy dude phone app via WiFi)

    PS3 Fat Boy CECHA01


    PS3 Fat Boy CECHA01

    My son is thinking about a new PS4. The current, on hand, edition CECHA01 was purchased just days after it arrived in stores back in around 2006. I bet maybe 4 games have ever been played on it so why does he want a new one...VR capabilities; his money😣. Any who, I check the store that starts with GAME and ends in a traffic STOP sign and they offer $29.00 trade in; that ain't happening. I have been led to believe that this Fat Boy model has some features that people want as it is backwards compatible to earlier versions....unless of course recent updates has removed that capability; not a gamer, I don't know. I have not checked (but can) I believe it plays SACDs. We used it 2 days ago (had to plug it in as it was setting idle in the rack) to watch a Bluray disc and after a forced update it worked fine. I have the unit, two wireless controllers, remote control and perhaps some other cables / adapters; no factory box. Included will be whatever game discs I can find around here. Asking a hunert bucks if you boys think that is reasonable (plus shipping from 78418)

    Considering a Rec Tec pellet smoker (I know it doesn't grill, I have a 22" Weber https://www.weber.com/US/en/grills/charcoal-grills/performer-series/15401001.html?cgid=219#start=1 for that) https://www.rectecgrills.com/rec-tec-grills-bull-rt-700-wood-pellet-grill/ Expensive BUT? The moving company seems to have "lost" my offset firebox smoker when I moved here 8 years ago and I never replaced it.

    Actually pretty fair; we gave 9k and I get 10.4 after 2k deductible.
