re: When did people start bringing their dogs everywhere? - tirebiter
[quote]To preface, I have neither dogs nor children. With that said, if I walk into a space and have the choice to sit near a table with a dog or a table with a child, I'm picking the table with the dog every time. I find it telling that the bulk of your complaint about dogs is that you find...

re: How is your AC holding up in this heat? - tirebiter
Have 2 3-ton units, 1 upstairs, 1 down, and a low pitched roof that suckssss. Had some more returns installed a few years ago, that has really helped. 76 upstairs during the day, 73 at night, keep downstairs at 74 constant, plus ceiling fans. If it gets up to 90 or more upstairs will run continuo...

re: Heads up: Lowe's has Cowboy brand 18 lb Lump Charcoal on clearance for $4 or $6 (or more) - tirebiter
Cowboy burns so fast it's like kindling and produces a shite ton of ash as you have to use so much. Fogo Premium chunks are bigger than my fist and dense AF. Stuff burns so long while producing small amounts of ash it is definitely worth the price. Do like the KJ restaurant quality XL, that is gre...

re: FDA finally names dog food brands linked to deadly heart disease in dogs - tirebiter
Just bought another 30 lb bag of Victor Lamb and Sweet potato grain free. Been using that the Hero beef for 3+ years, changed from multiple TOTW back then. Normally mix lamb and beef, but I don't like buying 60 lbs during hot weather for storage purposes. The 2 of them get plenty of brisket, chic...

Cherry Street is putting out some really nice beer, Stepping Razor IPA is consistently well above fray. I do like TRIMTAB 006 IPA, too. And the one off U...

re: Is $1 million a lot of money in 2019? - tirebiter
[quote]Unless things change drastically (I don't use the term lightly), the pensions are guaranteed at 60. I absolutely won't have the $1m by then and will still be in a mortgage. However, having said that, retiring at 60 "on a whim" - should have me in the ballpark of $70k, with some adjustment ...

I ate at this place 2x last September. Need to go early or late, it gets busy. Brisket and "TX sausage" (spare the flack from the naysayers) which were really good and I am a very tough on BBQ critiques. Sausage is on the less fatty side which I like. Sides were excellent. Are you going to RMNP...
