Think about the best nap you almost had. Maybe it was spring and the windows were open letting a gentle breeze come in. You could hear the low buzz of mowers and the muffled laughing of kids playing down the street. You were laying on the couch while Back to the Future III played on TV. You're into it, but you've obviously seen it a bunch of times and if we're being honest, you're not really a fan of the first half of the movie. If we're being really really honest you only like the part with the flying train but that's just between us ok. You snuggle deeper into your Invader Zim hoodie and start to doze off. You're so comfortable that you might as well be in one of those water chambers that weird rich people sleep in. Three of your eight cats are nestled around you like little round heating pads. Your eyes slowly drift shut as the movie goes to commercial and some guy tries to get you excited about pocket catheters.

Then your Mom barges in and starts yelling at you about the job interview you were supposed to be at. Then you Dad shows up and wants to know why all of the screwdriver handles are greasy and smell like poo poo. Your sister calls at this point and starts tearfully telling your mother about a post you made on the internet that involved you sniffing her panties. The some dude from Steam calls the police and they swat your house and shoot everyone but you totally deserved it because you owned him in CS for too long.

That's what my Popsicle stick represents. The Ghost of the the Nap that Almost Was.

Wrath of the Bitch King posted:

Most mistakes are 99% temperature management, and some meats are more tolerant of spikes/drops in temperature than others. Like, for ribs it's pretty important to have a very consistent level of temperature since the meat itself isn't super thick, so if the temperature spikes it's going to lose a lot of moisture and toughen up. If you want it tender you have to manage the temp properly and keep it at like 215 degrees reliably.

A pork shoulder is kinda LOL who gives a poo poo with regards to temp. Spike it or don't, as long as you reasonably control the temperature it'll come out fine.

There's a lot of podunk bullshit that amounts to folklore in the smoking community. A couple little rules:

Let your poo poo be at room temperature before you attempt to smoke it, otherwise you're making things harder on yourself.
Most of the time your meat is only going to be able to absorb maybe an hour's worth of full smoke exposure. Anything past that is wasted. This is a high point of contention among smoker retards.
There is no functional difference between lump charcoal and briquettes. Go gently caress yourself, and if you think the 0.0000000001% of glue used in making the briquettes is detectable in the flavor you're delusional. Briquettes are easier to use and control temp. with because of their size and predictability in fabrication.
Don't try and make brisket unless you have 16-20 hours of time on your hands. Don't try and make brisket unless you've smoked some easier stuff before.
Its A-OK to foil your ribs or whatever you're making during the home stretch. You can cut off 2 hours of cooktime on a large piece of meat by doing that and the flavor will be EXACTLY THE SAME. Same for ovening your ribs if you're into that. I don't, but the practice is logical. Heat is heat.
Decide early on if you're going to do a dry rub or a marinade. If you go with a marinade, make sure you have a decent injector. For something like a pork shoulder inject the marinade mixture hourly, imo.
Have an insulated container that is large enough for your finished product. This is pretty important as the meat continues to cook even after you pull it off your smoker/heat source. This goes for any type of grilling really.
Get a wireless thermometer of some kind, one with a probe for the meat and a probe for the internal temperature of the smoker. I find the built in temp gauge on most grills to be bullshit. They even make nice ones that are smartphone capable, if you're a turbonerd.

HTH

Cool, thank you.

just low and slow. 225 is OK for most anything, and you want it at that temp and smoking before you throw the meat on. "time" isn't really important (since the fire will never stay at a constant heat), so what really matters is internal temperature - you want baby backs at like 160 internal. should take about 5-6 hours. lower and slower go hand in hand, so if you really want to smoke baby backs for 10 hours you can do it, just not at 225. once you get the hang of it, there's all kinds of neat tricks to play with like foil and brining and sear finishing and poo poo like that but the basics are key

there's a million bullshit One Weird Tricks out there but the only really important bits are getting good thermometers so you know what's going on and paper toweling the meat dry before seasoning it.

if you dont feel like eyeballing a thermostat for hours and have spaceship money to burn, you can get something like a traeger pellet smoker and let it take care of the annoying part

Thank you. I think the first thing I need to do is get a good thermometer.

This is VERY true, the truth is often extreme. Like when you accept the reality that capitalism is a structural genocide, reform becomes insanely unethical. Would you reform slavery? No.

Then why would anyone argue to reform wage-slavery? I hope every capitalism-apologist capitalismgets strung up with their bankster-statist heroes when the revolution comes.

I will agree with this wholeheartedly. Though in my game it's an 'explosions' button.

Y'know, if Vox counts as a video game pioneer, I count as a VR game pioneer. Made a kinect style game out of an Amiga in the late 80s. Well, okay, helped do it, but still.

That sounds like the yang (key) to the poetry yin (key). You should have both in your game!

Your second point suddenly reminded me of something. Does anyone remember (this has to be mid 90s or earlier) the VIRTUAL REALITY websites? Like the url was different and if you put that into NETSCAPE NAVIGATOR or IE it would just straight load up the lovely virtual scene? This was also long before 2nd LIfe.
