The wife took the kid to another doc this morning for a second opinion on the kid’s shoulder. As it turns out, she doesn’t need surgery after all. So fucking typical…go to the doc, pay that doc to get referred to radiologist, then told one needs surgery; six of them to repair damage. Go to a real doc, and he says that it’s not necessary…what a contradiction…
We pay up the ass for health insurance (if we have it) and we depend on doctors to tell the truth about diagnosis, etc…not to pad their pockets or the pockets of their associated ‘clinics’.
Cynical? me? dang right…
Many thanks to all who contributed info on smokers…the Kent Rollins may be a bit over priced, and am looking at the Weber…I’ll have to get rid of the Char Griller smoker first…it works fine, it just does not hold enough wood…it’s really too bad as I had it in my head that that particular style was the way to go..I only used it once and it took me 15 hours to smoke a whole brisket to the point where it was just past raw…wood box does not hold enough charcoal, wood, whatever…I did some mods to it also; two extra thermometers, and a duct inside to keep the smoke in, instead of letting it all out…it seemed like a good idea.
The irony is that when we first bought this place, there was one of those Weber Smokey mountain smokers here, that belonged to dad…the step siblings swiped it or it went with the auction, but it was complete as I did actually use it once as a bbq pit..nice.
Now I got the wife’s attention, and she is coaxing me to go ahead and order the 18″ Weber, and say it’s from her…on the condition that I get rid of
1. the old Weber 22″ grill
2. the Char Griller wood box smoker
3. Mr Meat Smoker
The wife said “Just go to Craig’s list and put an ad..”
My response was “Yeah, so the buyer can come by at night and kill us all”
No decision has been made as of yet…
