I want one SO BAD but have to control my spending for a bit. I've been hemorrhaging money lately with a "quick little kitchen makeover" that started off with "just paint". Yeah right. Just paint......pffffttt!

Once I get that project done I'd like to get one. I have many internet friends that have them and love them but since they are "internet" friends I've not been able to see what they do first hand. The yogurt option intrigues me I must say!

I'm always late but better late than never I guess :P

This is fitting, AND ironically enough it's another Lion King reference, :P

Mastiff's are like little horses, lol. I have a customer of mine who owns a Nissan dealership and he lives out in a rural subdivision on a compound. He has a gate that I have the code to it but I never go in unless his Bullmastiffs were put up. He also has a Golden Retriever that runs among the others and she's a sweetie. Always wanting me to throw her tennis ball over and over and over and over, lol.

Turns out he has some landscapers that come to his place that also have the gate code and they made a fatal error. They didn't check the grounds before opening the gate and driving in. As they got up towards the house in the circular driveway by the fountain water feature, they started to get out of their truck when the Bullmastiffs (male and female) tore out after them and they jumped back in the truck. Both dogs were circling the truck barking and jumping up on the side trying to bite them through the window. One of them ended up biting the front bumper and was able to pull it away (bumper cover) while the other actually bit the right front tire and POPPED it! The explosion of the tire scared both dogs away and the owner of the home (my customer) comes running outside with a shot gun half awake, lol! He thought the tire bursting was a gunshot.

His wife had not seen the note that he left her the night before telling her to make sure the dogs were put up in the basement due to the landscapers and myself coming the following morning. I showed up with him standing around their truck shaking his head, still holding his shotgun. Being that he owned a dealership, he had guys come out to the house and changed out ALL 4 of their tires on the spot and fix the bumper. They worked like a Nascar pit crew, had it fixed FAST!

I had to go into the basement to look at the plumbing issue he was having and both dogs were in a huge crate (each in a separate one). The female was wagging her tail and whining at me like she wanted me to pet her, the male was just looking at me like I was a snack. The owner told me "Do NOT try and pet her, out of the 2 of them, she's the one that would kill you. Don't be fooled by the tail wagging!"

He didn't have to tell me again. I wasn't going to touch either one after I saw what they did to that truck!

The male was 160 pounds and the female was 140. They were stout doggies!

Cute dogs! I have to say though, MacDarnell, that's not a Pomeranian. I have 2 Poms, Duke and Baby.

Here's a picture of Duke

And here's a baby picture of Baby :)

Duke is now 12 and baby is 9.

Cool video cam!  I may have to invest in one to use on my bike!

They're quite fun. I'd love to see your videos  ;D

Looks like you had fun doing the video and the brisket looks excellent!
Best Greg

Thanks Greg. It was fun and I will do more in the future.

I hope he returns the call! I can attest that running a forum can be time consuming but it's not that bad. I had time to do it but it time that I volunteered, just like yourself David. I appreciate what he did in the past and I appreciate what you do now. We'll just move forward and hope he is doing well. If he does call you, let him know we all miss him and hope he's well!

I don't know for sure, but I do not think that he was paid. I think he did get some perks like the test units that he was able to keep as well as maybe some clothing swag once in a while.

Like Dave said, I am sure that he has his reasons for his departure, and I respect that.

On the other hand, I get where RG is coming from too. I do consider you guys as friends and while most of us don't get together for beers and talk about the football games and our wives, I do care about you all and if I ever had to leave for an extended time, I promise that I will check in and let you guys know.

As many of you guys know I usually check out pretty good for the summer as that is lake time for me with little time for reading forums. But, I do try to check in on the Sausage/Jerky/Venison forums once in awhile. I still smoke quite a bit of food in the summer, but just don't write about it as much as I haven't really tried much new stuff lately. I do need to start honing my brisket making ability though as I have only smoked a few of them and none recently. So, I may be asking some brisket questions in the future although most of the answers to my questions are already out there I think if I look for them. :)

I am still holding out for Tony to make his return to the site. His knowledge, unique personality, and effort has really helped shape this site and build it into what it has become. May God's Blessing Be With You, Buddy!

Very well said and I agree 100%. Tony is a good guy for sure and he was doing this out of his passion for the SI. That's what makes this all the more odd. HE LOVED those smokers and being on here. His knowledge was readily shared. You won't find a nicer person willing to help as he did. I do hold out hope that at some point he'll break the silence and come back and have fun with the rest of us. Hell, I don't even have an SI and I still hang out here, lol!
