Looks like a tasty butt my friend.  What's the occasion?  Geen egg too!

Parents in town from Michigan on their way to Florida. We all cried at Michigan loss to red raiders last night. Butt will make it all better. God bless the 🐖 oink. 1 rack each baby back and spares to wash down the pulled pork. Vinegar based home made sauce and slaw on top with small buns so you can have many.....just like N.C. does.

So I figured out that my french press coffee taste bitter as my grounds are too fine. Now i am thinking of trying a grinder and whole bean. I remember some recommendations a while back in regards t ok grinders. Any recommendations for one that will grind coarse?

I've used mine with my drip maker, the immersion and a previous glass french press that broke under the counter. It has ten settings, stayed between 5 - 8 with most beans for drip - press. Thing about this one is the consistency of the grinds, and that the machine keeps on making the grinds the same as where you set it. Like any good machine should do!

The last one I had tried to grind a pebble, I did stop it and it worked well for another couple of years. Used the same grinder for over ten years, though now on my second one.

I can use the immersion with the metal mesh screen with it set at 7 without having sludge at the bottom of the mug.

Electric & yea pricey to me but coffee is my vice now! The newer one isn't as noisy, only some static in the cool months.

Gets almost fine enough for expresso or Turkish but not quite.

Coffee grounds and a rolled dollar bill, as if to be snorted like a drug

I bought the Cuisinart burr grinder off of Amazon under someone's recommendation here. It has worked well. It can dial up pretty darn coarse to extra fine.

I dug out a bigger stick, so I don't have to run into a wall to straighten up.  The guy that carved it signed and dated it... It's 30 years old.. Spiral carved.. 5 feet long/tall. 

The guy that did/doing our work commented about not expecting Gandolf when I told him I quit cutting my hair/beard.   This stick fits....

This is an excellent grinder.  I use it for all different grind types.

Even this Spartan was disappointed and surprised by the Wolverines’ loss to Texas Tech.

Haven't picked up a grinder yet as i am waiting to finish the bar, which will give me place to store it. For now, just grinding at the store, which should get me by.

Meanwhile, picked up the ceramic tumbler, as i am not a fan of plastic taste. Sipping on some Starbucks Italian Roast.

Yep. Looks like on $400 less income than the previous year I'm going to pay about $200 more federal tax and $150 more state tax. I think its the California didn't vote for Trump penalty tax.

This state is so f'd up there's no hope for rational sane citizens, its a lost cause.

It's penalty tax period to pay for the rich guys and corporation tax cuts.  Don't think for a moment you are alone.

Thanks to the wonderful new tax laws that were to be of great benefit to the middle class, I am not receiving any kind of refund for the first time in 30 years, and paying more than ever.  Thank you.

It’s been nice having this thread.  It would be a shame to have it locked.
