re: Alabama One Step Closer To Banning D8 - The Spleen
[quote]My Alabama stores are actually ramping up ordering bc it is supposed to be stripped from the bill. [/quote] My only concern is seeing D8 carts starting to show up in gas stations. I would be fine with them passing some regulations requiring stores to have a special license to sell it. ...

[quote]No home brewing allowed, either[/quote] Homebrewing has been legal in Alabama since 2008. Even before then, it wasn't really enforced and online merchants would freely ship stuff here. ...

re: Brisket Flat Ideas - The Spleen
There are some YouTubes on how to do a flat on a Weber kettle with a fast and hot method. I'd probably watch one of those and mimic those. It makes sense to do a flat hot and fast since it's the leaner part of the brisket. Some call it cheating, but you can also inject it with beef broth to help kee...

re: Brisket Flat Ideas - The Spleen
[quote] How long and what temp? It’s a 3 lb [/quote] General rule of thumb for brisket is 1.5 hours per pound, but it can vary widely depending on a lot of factors. It's best to use a temperature probe and cook it to temp than worrying about the time. I've had flats get to temp in 4 or 5 hours, a...

re: Alabama One Step Closer To Banning D8 - The Spleen
FWIW, that article is a bit dated and all indications are the amendment banning D8 is going to be stripped from the bill. It was supposed to come to the floor this past week and didn't because of the pressure put on them to remove the amendment. Ironically, medical marijuana is getting closer an...

re: Have you or anyone you know actually cried over the death of a celebrity? - The Spleen
I wasn't in the best frame of mind when I first heard Mary Tyler Moore had died, and shed a couple of tears. It was on the tail end of a two-week business trip and I was missing my family and home when it came on the news in the lonely hotel room. ...

re: Breweries in Asheville NC - The Spleen
Interesting. There was hardly a line at all at Green Man when we were there on a Friday afternoon this past November. This was right after we had lunch at Burial. We walked over and there were 2 people in line in front us. Line at Burial was 50+ deep when we left there, but it was moving pretty fast...

re: Amazon employees in Alabama vote to NOT unionize. - The Spleen
[quote]Unions had an important role back before safety regulations were a real thing. Unions ensured safe working conditions. Today, the feds do that (for better or for worse).[/quote] I think the biggest benefit for union membership is the one benefit least talked about - legal representation. P...

re: Amazon employees in Alabama vote to NOT unionize. - The Spleen
[quote]I don't think they have that much leverage. Or a reason to complain about wages or benefits (at least not right now).[/quote] The general thought was if this vote has passed, it would have created a domino effect to other Amazon facilities. Eventually enough would have unionized to really ...

[quote]Honest question, is this an expensive home in this area?[/quote] I would guess it's on the upper end of average, possibly slightly above average. The quoted pieces make it sound like there aren't a lot of homes in that area though, so who knows. ...

re: Breweries in Asheville NC - The Spleen
[quote]Sierra Nevada's facility is just amazing. Nickname is Malt Disney World. Beer is meh but it's a gorgeous compound[/quote] It's a cool place, but I don't think it's worth the drive from downtown Asheville. Way too much of a sterile, corporate feel to it. And when I was there, they really di...
