smoking a brisket though, that should come first. too bad 69% of people do it wrong.

There are different right ways to do it, and lots of wrong ways but the key is to make sure you keep the seasoning simple, get good smoke penetration and take care not to over or under cook it.  I usually do a modified Texas style cook and wrap in butcher paper, but instead of putting back on the smoker once wrapped, it goes in the oven for better temperature control.

I also remove the flat end and use it to make pastrami and/or Montreal smoked meat.

Assume a proper trim to start with, then a light coat of Lawry's seasoned salt. 2:1 ratio of 16-mesh black pepper and kosher salt applied pretty heavy. Obviously, cured post oak wood for the smoke and ideally a decent offset smoker. Wagyu beef tallow is the new central TX cheat, so throw a good amount of that in a tin and smoke it along with the brisket. Clean fire ~225F for the first several hours to get ideal smoke penetration, can also throw some of the trimmed fat onto the fire at this point. Bump it to 250F-275F to blast past the stall. Pour the rendered tallow on the brisket and butcher paper and then wrap. At that point, doesn't matter if you finish on the smoker or in the oven. Once the meat is over 200F and you have that brisket jiggle, open up the paper and let it come down to 170F or so. Then re-wrap either in the old paper or new paper with more tallow. Then let it rest in the oven ~160F for at least 12 hours and you will have created the pinnacle of TX brisket.

I could give you some pointers in being successful in chess, Zork or an IT/technology career but not controls designed to pay Steam hosted games.  Maybe you should get out more.  Play golf, ride a dirt bike, hike in national parks, ski, take nature pictures, swim, fuck chicks, pick wild mushrooms, hunt, go fishing, mow the lawn, eat at the 'Y', build an 8-bit computer, race a vehicle, design an analog acquisition interface, repair the footings in a cottage,  re-furbish classic computers, tile a floor, drywall a ceiling, wire a basement, do some plumbing, smoke a brisket,  build a raised deck, design your own fucking gamer dude interface, weld up a motorcycle trailer, build a race bike, convert a ramp-back utility trailer into a long term toy hauler, create a water system controller for people on low production well systems, manage a staff of 250 people, make a tiny little dent in the world ..

Maybe not.

Go play "V Rising".

tbh ive done about 80% of those things and i will still get a steam deck

smoking a brisket though, that should come first. too bad 69% of people do it wrong.

I'm still upset about the Celtics choking away the title.

It isn't really choking when you never had a chance to begin with.

Tell me more.

I've watched it three times now and it is still shit, but less shit than the initial viewing. You still should not pay to watch it, but if you do make sure it is on discount Tuesday or something.

Why? Why are you spending your time and money on going to see a move you don't even like multiple times? I don't get theatrical repeat viewers. I mean, if it's first and foremost a social event, then fine, but going to see a movie in theaters again specifically because you want to see that same movie again is just weird to me. No matter how much I might love a movie, I don't want to see it again within a few days or weeks. That makes the movie feel stale, and wears it out in my mind. I'd much rather watch a movie for the second time after at least a few months' time. And I wouldn't waste my time on rewatching a movie I especially disliked at all.

it's called going with different people...

The great replacement can finally make some real progress.

Also: "A furious ex-MP, Vladimir Bortko, said the sinking of the Moskva was grounds for war" Are Russian ex-MPs not aware that they're... already at war...?
They're not. It's a special whatchamacallit, remember?

Ah right, of course, a special peacekeeping mission. There to keep the peace. Enforce the peace. It will be peaceful. Involuntarily peaceful.


Quote from: Peacemaker
I cherish peace with all my heart. I don’t care how many men, women, and children I need to kill to get it.

Republicans will fight dirty and act in bad faith regardless of what Democrats do or don't do, and the sooner Democrats realize that, the better off they'll be.

Hot take time. Democrats already know that and have known it for many years, and they are not better off.

I can see why they cut this.

They should have cut another 30-45 minutes...
