Whoa! Stop the interweb! That gyro thing is freekin way cool!!!
Looks like it would make meat sling juice all over the place but who cares! It would just be fun to watch! ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Man it's been quite a couple weeks around here. Been super stoned all day every day hitting that rosin and been kinda doing a working vacation not taking a full vacation but also not spending 8 hours at work either.
And it looked like my city might burn last week but cooler heads have prevailed with messages and acts of peace and unity. All I can do is offer support and have been in Zoom meetings listening and talking about things that are very uncomfortable but hey it's time to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. My neighbors are hurting and if they hurt, I hurt. Time for so much shit to just stop.
One cool thing that happened is there's no better way to peace than thru breaking bread and eating together. In doing that I've found Ethiopian cuisine is so freekin dank! Crazy how dark times can lead one to wonderful things and new friendships.

And IDK about you but damn I have a hard time keeping up with the board! I finally realized there's a watch button but dang I keep losing my place every time I log on. I gotta lot of catching up to do ๐Ÿฅด

My bike / urban assault vehicle is still kickin' ass but it seems like I get a flat every week. Took it to a bike shop once and they did a quick repair for me on the cheap. Next flat I took it to another shop due to the lockdown but some guy acted like a snobby 'roid rage jerk because my bike is'nt a brand name racing bike they sell. My bike is like a monster truck of bikes and I'll be damned if some spandex clad asshat is gonna try to bike shame me. That pissed me off so much I decided to get a mechanic stand and all the tools to do my own bike repairs. I should hit 420 miles on the odometer any day now ๐Ÿค‘

Garden is doing well...freekin hot and squirrels keep robbing my food stuffs but it's still growing great. I'll get pics this week sometime.
Took some pics a few minutes ago of my indoor garden and things are moving along...

Glass tips for doobies!!!
There's another brand called OG Tips but I found the Air Stewards on 'zon
These things are way cool and I like them so much more than paper or cotton tips. And being glass they just need to be cleaned and can be reused so doubt I'll be buying Raw tips anymore

Now I got some catching up to do before I get too wasted for the night...Take it ez brother and have a great week! โœŒ

Hey you too brother! Hope all is going well with you and yours!๐Ÿค˜
Better get to steppin on that build buddy but yeah I know...things get in the way sometimes of the fun stuff.
I got caught up a little with ya in Stoneys journal and dang dude...that roofing skammer fuck is a total POS. We get scammers around here all the time after a big storm and people get taken all the time. Ruthless types doing that crap to people.
Also read you got a new mower!
I did too but mine is a city boy 40v battery powered Ryobi jobber. Pretty decent though for my small patches of bare ground cluttered with grass & weeds.
Hope y'all have a great weekend Brother!!! Dont be a stranger now ya hear!

It's my new jam to sit in my man size kiddie pool with a doobie and frozen margarita while I give this 102 degree heat the ๐Ÿ–•

And I was gifted something I'm still not sure what to think about. Well I was gifted a gift card to a store I dont ever shop at and could only find one thing I'd possibly be interested in......an electric smoker ๐Ÿคจ



I have'nt unboxed it yet. It's sitting on my deck among all the fire burning apparatuses and I just sit there staring at it and giving it the stink eye. I think I can control the little fucker with my Ipad and that just does'nt seem right. And why would a smoker need a remote control? This could get very weird.
I have named it though...I'm calling it R2-BBQ ๐Ÿค–
I do like the glass door though. It's gonna be like peep show for carnivores ๐Ÿคช
 
Beautiful thread brother! I am not sure how I missed so much, but it was definitely nice to catch up on. I truly appreciate all of your hard work that goes into it! You mentioned skateboarding. My old ass hasn't been on a board in a long time, but I found this video recently and it blows my mind. Positive vibes...

yeah that video of the gyro grill wasn't the representation... kinda sloppy... the really cool ones were more of a build instruction and were like 30 minutes long so i picked the first shorty i could find, but other spin more controlled and every side goes under fire.

.

man that is a really good way of putting it. we need to be cool with being uncomfortable. this country has been crooked for way too long and the way of thinking must change. i can't really change others and not my place to even do so but i sure as hell can change myself. I ain't perfect, always room for improvement!!!!!

and yeah i have had eithopian(sp??) food in the past only a few times and it was like fifteen years ago but what i do remember is the unique spices and flavor parties on the palette!!!! and a puffy kind of bread that i really liked, no clue what the name was.

lately we have been hooked on this turkish place in our town. kabab's and hummus kind of meals. and the deserts are off the hook!!!!

.

sucks to hear about that damn chippy.... i have a lot of em here... today one was caught between me and three of my chickens... the chippy didn't want nothing to do with the birds, that fucker ran straight at me... i lowered my hedge trimmer down at it and totally freaked out!!! the chickens were cackling and flapping wings... it was pretty funny!!!!!!

my buddy that has that dog bella, she traps em in the downspouts then pops em off and rolls the pipe across the yard with the chippy trapped inside... funniest thing ya ever seen!!!!

you just say the word chipmunk and that dog goes nuts!!!!

a few years ago i was trapping them in my greenhouse and letting them go at my mailbox, about a mile away.. thought maybe they were coming back because i was catching dozens of them. so i started painting their tails before i let em go.... nope there were really that many, never caught a painted tail!!!! the population is starting to grow again... i might have to get my little trap again!!!!

right now i'm trying to trap a coyote, i have some special bait and a very large trap... been two days now in a known activity area and no takers... fingers crossed tonight is the night!!!! saw three on a game cam so i know i got more than one to catch!!!

.

bro you know it about the forum flying by... i'm also forced to used the watched threads to keep up, and even with them marked i'm still having trouble keeping up~~~ haha ... the bookmark feature is super cool, i've bookmarked your post with all the UV bulb info for the ozone setup!! to see just a particular post in a thread at any given time is the coolest ever!!!!!

.

and i'm a bit jealous of you co2 count!!! i have the same autopilot but stopped using it because i was tired of looking at a red light everyday!!!!! clean country air gives me about 60ppm.

but man your plants look great!!!!! love the pool!!!!!!! i'd never get anything done with that in the yard!!! except catch a buzz!!! haha and those tips look like the tits bro!!!!!!!

now speaking of tits.... your new smoker!!!! are you kidding me, electric is the best!!!!!!!!!!!! talk about perfect even temps!!!!!!!!! very efficient on the wood chips too. i think you're gonna love that thing man!!!!!!!

have a killer weekend brother!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH yeah, almost forgot... maybe you should put some green slime in your bike tires,,, i use that stuff religiously around here. it's more of a preventative thing. it stays loose and coats the entire inside of the tube/tire so when a puncture or sidewall leak does happen it instantly fills the hole then hardens up to seal the leak. sometimes on my atv i don't even realize when i do get a leak until weeks later when i see a bump of slime sticking out!!!

๐Ÿ™ƒ โœŒ

wow that was long message... sorry, guess i got carried away!!!

10-4 buddy, I'll be up and running after hunting season, can't stand buying flowers when they not are quality. I can grow my own for about as much as what I'm buying store bought BS!! And have 3-4-5 times as much!, If I play may cards right!

That smoker don't look that bad, but I get what you're saying. Go ahead and see how you like it, there's always eBay/ Craigslist to get rid of it if you don't like it.

Inera bread!

IMG_1953.JPG


Yeah kinda like a stone bread crepe and they are delicious!
Here's a little Ethiopian meat sampler with collard greens. Not the most photogenic grub but the aromas are intoxicating ๐Ÿคช

IMG_1952.JPG


Yeah that free co2 is kinda nice. Seems to help with high temps not be so stressful but when I flower this crop that ac is coming on to get those cool night temps ๐Ÿ˜‰
Right now I also have fresh air cycling in and exhaust running full tilt for fast air exchanges and gas levels are still pretty good.

I gave up trying to keep up and just kinda float along now ๐Ÿ™ƒ Just been a little busy and life is just weird lately
My wife is working at home so my game room is now an office

IMG_1891.JPG


And cat bed apparently ๐Ÿคจ Got her set up with a electric powered rising desk to stand or sit while she works and a new chair. All the pc gear came from her work and we wired it in here.

I've been thinking a lot about using slime in my bike tires. I had it in my old tubes then switched tubes, popped them, got another and it's seam split then I got nice one with some liners called Tuffys. Hopefully this works but now I need to get new rear brake pads ๐Ÿ˜Ž

That's funny about the chipmunks...Ya know I think they're a delicacy in some parts of the country ๐ŸŒฎ

Oh yeah... the smoker. ๐Ÿ˜

At first I thought maybe I could use it to decarb weed. My expectations were just low. Then jerky came to mind which is something I still think will turn out great. Use it like a dehydrator but adds smoke flavor. And now I'm fairly convinced I can get this thing to do some awesome smokeouts.๐Ÿค˜
I watched some videos and noticed in several how opening a cold beer is the first step to using a lectric smoker so right away I knew things could go well and maybe my concern and prejudice was all for not.๐Ÿค–
I did a brisky to break it in after about 6 hours of seasoning. I made mistakes both in use and recipe but the smoker kinda made up for those slips.
I shoulda lined things like the bowl & tray with foil and take out racks not being used, rookie mistake. Added too much salt to my rub and I tried to run it too low at first so from 4am till 11am it barely smoked. Took it to 250 and I got that clearish nice smoke I like to see flow. It was'nt black or thick and billowing..it was exactly what you like to see coming from a smoker. Had I started at 250 I woulda got a smoke ring and have an excellent top shelf brisket but with those mistakes and no smoke for the first 5 hours gave me just a good brisket. The quality of the meat also saved the day

nice big packer cut

IMG_1896.JPG


I'm not the best at trimming...just dont do it enough but I got a new 8" curved boning knife and did a decent job on this one.

IMG_1902.JPG


Top shelf bark and man the burnt ends were very worthy!

IMG_1932.JPG


After about 12 hours in

IMG_1933.JPG


Today I'm gonna fire it up again. I'm thinking about beer can chicken. I have a recipe idea of using home grown peppers in the beer and glazing the bird with bacon jam ๐Ÿคช And I've been thinking of smoking some salmon and yeah..... jerky!!!
I think the nice thing about this smoker is I can set it and go do lots of other things so today while the bird smokes I'll be squishing buds and taking care of some garden chores needing done ๐Ÿค˜

In other news...I got a little vegan streak in me going too, messing with mushrooms and veggie kabobs latley
As I was dressing some portabellas with olive oil I used a tool that had me thinking of you

Right on man! I was skating from around 1984 up until around 1998 when I got into my current job. I started working 7 days a week and just never got time and fell out of it.
Oh yeah the nostalgia in my grill runs deep!!! And yep they were issued to troops in 'Nam! It's kinda cool to tap in to this history when I light it up for sure

hilton-meigs-pk-grill.jpg


The only thing that may have changed is I dont do cookouts wearing wingtip loafers and being left handed I use mine backwards so every time I see the logo on top it's upside down. But hey if Hendrix could play his guitar upside down then I can surely run my grill upside down ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Here's a veggie spread I did...the pots are coated with olive oil and stuffed with spinach and bacon jam then topped with mozzarella

Good to hear man! Yeah this smoker might be a keeper for now.
Speaking of hunting I was on the hunt at a local liquor store and took down a bottle of tequila on sale that made me think of you for some reason๐Ÿคฃ

So I had an update ready about a week ago but just got tied up in work and stuff and never got the chance to post so here's a two for one update on my ganja project.

IMG_1944.JPG


a week or so later I think they're ready for some pruning/mainlining and get ready for flowering

IMG_1956.JPG





















and a moment of zen out back



















I hope everybody is doing well, staying healthy and happy, growing great pot and having fun! Peace to all and happy ganja farming!
 
Flipped!๐Ÿ™ƒ
So I'm trying something out here in the spirit of being conservative on supplies, mainly trying to save as much as I can on using soils & nutes and kinda streamline the operation.
Typically when I flip a crop to flower, upcanning into 7 gallon pots coincides with the flip but this grow I'm delaying the upcan.
Basically I'm trying to avoid putting in extra work, time, and resources into male plants. To do this I'm waiting for males to show, cull them, and then direct all attention into the remaining females.
I'm pretty sure the soils they're in is depleted so I'm using more and more liquid nutes at nominal strength rather than keeping feedings light. They're being fed Neptune's Harvest Liquid Fish and Seaweed๐Ÿงœโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿงœโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿฆ€๐ŸŒฟ

1315011_Neptunes_Harvest_Fish_Seaweed_Blend_Feretilizer_Product_Label.png


I've also noticed how the soil is getting more compacted and could use some topping off so this weekend I'm gonna mix some Uprising Foundation with some fresh soil and use this as a top dressing. Hopefully this keeps the plants happy and well fed until they get that upcan after showing sex.
I'm also adding in Great White 1x per week and may also feed them some Roots Trinity
Water is RO, no pH checks at any time๐Ÿ˜Ž

Here they are after about 30 hours spent in the dark.
An extended dark time at flip is a great little tool to use in getting males to show early. They come out of the dark a little light deprived, new shoots will be pale, but after a few hours with the lights back on they green up again.
Some males look to already be showing after the extended darkness...pretty sure I see balls on three plants and over the next 2-5 days I'm betting all males will be showing nads๐Ÿ™ƒ

Other happenings in my world....

made some refrigerator dill pickles with some home grown garden cukes!๐Ÿ˜‡

IMG_1986.JPG


Gonna have to fry up some chicken now. Got a package of brioche buns and using my pickles should make for a helluva fried chicken sammy.
I also want to smoke a pork butt and small ham to make some killer Cubano sammys with the fresh pickles๐Ÿž๐Ÿฅ’๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿท

These are some bacon wrapped, cheese stuffed shrimps made on the grill๐Ÿค๐ŸŒถ

IMG_1967.JPG


beer can chicken! Cut the top off a local craft brewery IPA, dropped a couple hot peppers in it then perched the bird on top of the can of beer. The bird was also rubbed down course black pepper and bacon jam. Smoked it for about 4 hours๐Ÿ˜œ

I also had some beef ribs for the dogs and some bacon wrapped, cheese stuffed peppers in the smoker above the chicken so all their drippings fell onto the bird as they cooked๐Ÿค‘

Another new gadget I'm trying out for the Summer is an infusion pitcher. Kinda surprised at what can be made with these things. Makes me wanna start growing some mint so I can make mint, cucumber, & berry infused water and teas.
This is a batch of strawberry water and it tastes kinda like strawberry koolaid but without the sugar sweetmess, just the sweet and flavor of the berry infused into the water๐Ÿ˜Ž

And finally...a moment of levity during some challenging times ๐Ÿค˜

I tell ya man I really need to get a quality herb garden going. Mints, tymes, chives, dill all of it. I could really up my cooking game with more fresh herbs on hand.
Busy night tonight with the upcannings ready and overdue...I'll update that later this week
but if ya want some more sensory overload...check this out!!!!

To start...I'm in the zone with the electric smoker now and yesterday did some shit with it that easily ranks up there with some of my best cookouts ever!
I did pork ribs! Two slabs!
They were rubbed down Wednesday with a sweet garlic ginger seasoning, more garlic, and cayenne pepper, kept cold and brought to room temp for a couple hours before going in the smoker.

Smoked them for 4 hours at 250* using mesquite, cherry, and apple chip blend. And gotta say I love how conservative the smoker is on wood so that's saving me a lot of fuel money!
Along with the 3 wood blend, down in the water bowl which is new to me having never used water but have used soaked chips...(I like water and chips much more now than soaked chips) I used a mix of 1 part tart cherry juice to 4 parts water.

After those 4 hours of smoke, I pulled the ribs out and basted with a spray bottle mixture of 1 part mango hibiscus tea, 1 part Muay Thai sauce, and 2 parts water. After mist basting I wrapped them in foil and put them back in the smoker, reduced heat to 200, and let them cook another 1.5 hours.

Check this out...pure money shot right here!



















Cooked to fall of the bone perfection and the blend of sweet, fruity, and spicy blended so well yet the flavor of the pork was still there and not even close to being drowned out! No need for a sauce at all, The rub, basting, and meat juice made all the sauce I could ask for.
Gotta say I am a believer in electric smokers after yesterday!!! These were my best ribs ever and now when I get back into a brisky I know some nuances that will take it to another level!
 
Hahahaha. Just now eating/fixing a burger and lasagna, from my brand new meat grinder.. of course you know me, it's all ELK MEAT that I grinded... Very good shit, not even going to hide it

Ya know when I trimmed that brisket I pulled off a huge chunk of good meat off the point and then another good size piece just in trim. I ended up cooking up for my dogs treats but man the whole time I was thinking I wish I had a grinder and could stuff all that trim in some casing and make some really good brisket sausage ๐Ÿ˜‹
I need to make a trip to Cabelas and see what they have for me ๐Ÿ˜‰
You take care too brother and get that g/room going!!โœŒ

Working on the blue print for the room, I half to wait to break ground on it till the roofers come and go before any of that takes place.

But man look on Amazon first. Cabela's is good too but you will pay for there name.
Just make sure you get one that's at least half hp, and stainless steel parts....

Good call on 'zon. There's another place here called Academy and they always have the same stuff at way better pricing than Cabelas or Bass Pro. Thing about Cabelas being overpriced is that the stuff is often junk too. That's where I got my smoker with the gift card. All the Cabelas smokers were trash and their knock off Traegar grills were a joke. They did have my Masterbuilt on clearance though, last one they had and it's not the best but I think it's still better than their branded gear. If they did'nt have that I prolly woulda bought a new shotgun or spent more and bought a handgun but did'nt wanna got thru the wait. ๐Ÿ˜Ž


Little update on my ganja project!
I kinda like this downsized thing and the plan to flip while still in veg containers did save me two bags of soil and maybe a lb of dry nutes so I gained something there having a jumpstart on supplies for the next grow. Plants were on the brink of suffering having their soil be so depleted but the upcan fixed all that business in a matter of hours.

On the male to female ratio I hit right at 50/50 but also culled two females just because they were kinda wonky and I dont feel like nursing a couple Cant get Rights thru this grow.
In the end I ended up with at least one specimen from all 5 strains with maybe 3-4 Dank Sinatras being the most abundant.
All together I have 8 plants left so I dont need my extra grow tray, no real need to have the light mover on right now either and there should'nt be any need for my supplement lights later so that will save $$$ not having that extra 300 watts being used on this grow

So without further delay here's the 8 ladies I kept to carry on with the show!

And since I love doing the video thing way more than taking a bunch of pics...I hope y'all enjoy it as much as I enjoy shooting it!
