Bag of Randomness For The Last Day Of February 2018

  • When it comes to removing dog poop from the bottom of your shoes, a good way doesn’t exist.
  • I know a handful of you are great meat smokers and barbequers, so I wanted y’all two give me your two cents on this offset smoker/pizza oven /grill contraption this guy made. After clicking the link, be sure to scroll down for more pics.
  • How Has Stephen Hawking Beat the Odds Against ALS?‘The honest answer is, we don’t have a clue.’
  • The Cowboys donated some cheerleading stuff to the Smithsonian. The most interesting thing to me was the original sketch of the uniform.
  • In other Cowboys news, they decided to opt-out of the NFL ticketing deal with Ticketmaster and agreed to terms with SeatGeek to be their box office partner, and will take 15% of the company.
  • Kiefer Sutherland
    • He was on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” last night and stated his full name, and this isn’t a joke, is Kiefer William Frederick Dempsey George Rufus Sutherland. He also said he has a twin sister.
    • I’ve been binge-watching HBO’s ‘Veep’ with Julia Louis-Dreyfus and discovered the daughter in the show is a bit of Hollywood royalty. She is played by Kiefer’s daughter. That makes three generations of Sutherlands I’ve watched over the years – Donald, Kiefer, and now Sarah Sutherland. Donald (82 years old) and Kiefer (51) have been in three films together, it would be neat if they could get on screen with Sarah (30) on day.
  • I caught a ‘Nightline’ segment about a fashion social media personality who gets paid to post. To my surprise, they are required to disclose if what they are posting is a paid ad:
    • “Last year the Federal Trade Commission stepped in to control transparency, reminding social influencers they’re required to disclose paid posts.”
  • The Toughest Oscar Vote of All: Deciding Who Gets into “In Memoriam”
  • My Taper’s Keeper: Inside the World of NBA Barbers
  • This is cool. Here’s (YouTube) the backstory.

    You should watch Last Week Tonight. John Oliver did a bit on the salmon cannon in Season 1.

    Hey first time writing a comment here. I love the Akorn grills they are a cheaper version of the big green egg. I have had mine for over a year and it is amazing. I have done 13 hours cooks on it with amazing results. You would need to buy a few extra parts to do a long cook but it is not that expensive.

    They sell them at Lowes type stores. There are also some facebook pages to join that help a lot.

    Glad to see you back in the blog routine, Keith. Hope it means you are getting better.

    Re: the smoker… cool design. I’d like to hear more on how it actually does on smoking. Lots of curves on that lid that will need to be sealed, not just for smoke but for heat, (and I would definitely move the intake of the exhaust down below the midline of the smoker chamber). The Pizza oven idea is pretty good!

    You are exactly right on the dog poop issue. A small stick works about the best. High pressure water works OK but then the sh*t flies off everywhere, mostly on the person washing the shoes! Is there any worse moment when you first smell the dog poop and then lift your shoe and realize it’s on your shoe? HaHaa! First world problem I know but that sucks!

    The smoker is cool. Like the fire box and pizza thing, but actual smoker needs to be much bigger. When I fire mine up, I like to do a brisket, pork butt, couple of chickens, ribs, sausage and even a cabbage.
    Glad you’re back (pun)
    Keep up the good work!
