Deals/Deal Requests / Re: Laptop Deals Master Thread
« on: January 11, 2021, 07:06:07 PM »
I have the Dell xps 13 and I love it.

Only issue I have, which I've seen other complain about in reviews, is the shutdown. I never figured out how to use standby without it freezing up and needing to be restarted. I just shut down completely every time I'm done using it (but having a SSD, I can have it up and running in seconds).

Otherwise I really like it. It's really strong and durable, which I need for heavy use. I like the way it runs, and I never had any other issues.

Feel free to ask specific questions about it if you have any.
Thanks, no specific questions,  I just need a new laptop for basic use- office/zoom/streaming etc. And these were the 2 laptops that came up on multiple searches for top laptops under 1k

Thoughts on HP envoy x360 (amd ryzen 5/8gb memory)
Other option im looking at is Dell xps 13

This is what banks were/are getting:
In the CARES Act:
A .5% fee on loans below $350,000.00
A .3% fee on loans between $350,001.00 and $2,000,000.00
A 1% fee on loans between $2,000,001.00 and higher

In the Response and Relief Package:
A 50% fee on loans below $50,000.00 (capped at $2,500)
A 5% fee on loans between $50,001.00 and $350,000.00
A 3% fee on loans between $350,001.00 and $2,000,000.00

CRAZY increase.
Keep in mind this is what the banks get, EU is a broker and they only get a portion of that and are passing on 20% of their portion.

Politics / Re: Who do you think will win the GA runoff (and US Senate)?

How in 2020 can a public anti semite and follower of Anti Semite Jeremiah Wright win a Senate race? Congress I can understand but how can people of an entire state that up until recently was reliably RED vote in someone so vile???

Warnock defended anti-Semite and anti-American pastor Jeremiah Wright and praised Marxism.
Warnock’s mentor called for the “destruction of everything white” and argued white Christians are “satanic.”
Warnock signed a letter comparing Israel to apartheid South Africa.
Warnock called police officers “gangsters and thugs” and “bullies.”
Warnock made the false claim he saw the government of Israel shoot down unarmed Palestinians like birds of prey.
Warnock cozied up to Fidel Castro in 1995.
Earlier this year, Warnock was accused by his wife of running over her foot with his car after they got into an argument.
In 2002, Warnock was accused of hindering a police investigation into child abuse.
Warnock criticized the Second Amendment during sermons.
Warnock made the claim that Jesus was a Palestinian, which anyone who has looked at history or theology knows is impossible
He insulted our active service military members and veterans by opining that ‘nobody can serve God and the military:’

Thank you! A bunch more qs.
Can I just put in smoker open till it hits the temp? Or Do I need to wrap?
Do I split the 1st from 2nd cut (I’m not sure it’ll both fit on a rack together.)?
Also, if I do it separately can I have a thermometer in one of the pieces and that’ll be a good enough gauge for both?
Do you have a good rub recipe?
What wood chips should I buy?
@noturbizniss answered most of your questions, for the rub go with bbb rub, found here:

which one do you have? i use camp chef and it works but not thrilled with it. price was right though
Rt 700, definitely a pricey piece.

it's easier in certain regards but i find the temperature fluctuates much more. a noob may have a hard time managing that. i'm not using a top of the line pellet grill though. maybe a traeger keeps temp more consistently.
My pellet keeps temps within 2 degrees 99% of the time. I (fianlly) can sleep peacefully with my briskets on the smoker.

Thanks for the feedback!  I will try that
What temp did you smoke it at? 7hrs seems pretty fast to get the brisket to 200

Was my mistake.  Either way ribs rested and then kept warm at 200° for 2 hrs.  Was perfect. 
Brisket got ready exactly to the bbq. 7.5 hours

Results: all ribs were amazing. Brisket was ok but wasn't pull apart soft.

Dino ribs


Rack of ribs

Take the brisket to 205 next time, hopefully that'll make it softer.
And dont be shy with the rub.

I'm scheduling a big smoke for sunday. Just got my new traeger and going to take it for a spin :)

I want to smoke:
Dino ribs
Beef rack ribs

I know smoking 101 but any tips would be helpful.

For Dino: I'm doing basic rub, getting the temp to 200

For rib, same but adding bbq sauce for last half hour

For brisket, basic rub, wrap when stalled, bring to 200° and rest.

You got it all down, good luck!
Only thing I'd add is before letting the brisket rest, open the wrap for about half hour so you dont have carryover cooking and then rewrap.
