Mary was a lively and alive woman who did many kind things for me and my family. She was also wickedly funny with some of my favorite one liners. I have many wonderful memories of her.. My deepest and warmest regards to your dad and all of you that miss her. Sharon



Comment on On Death And Taxes; Some Tools to Make End-Of-Life Easier by Dan Wood

Bill, great suggestions for the hardware end of things. I will be looking into these. I can't emphasize how useful and important it is, from the legal/financial side of things, to get one's parents — and oneself, while you are at it — set up with a living trust. It basically avoids everything being in the nightmare scenario called probate.

What's the worst that could happen? A new vacuum? Go for it. Even if you do some damage, it's probably just a bit of duct tape away from a fix. If the stupid "bag full" sensor is already false positive all the time, you can't use the vacuum anyway.

First, thanks for this.. 2nd, I am stuck with hard, plastic strips with the one way teeth... I'm terrified I'm gonna break it beyond repair because I'm getting angry at it. Help?

It's almost silly to mention this, but the thought kept coming back to me every time I thought of your mom's passing: your mother made the best ever scrambled eggs I've ever had. And she made me think more creatively about cooking from that moment on. May she rest gently.

Bill, My warmest regards and empathy for you and your family. Mary Hessel Bumgarner clearly left an indelible mark on this world through her influence and family. Knowing you, I see how we are all better off for her time on this Earth. Sorry Bill.

Comment on So you wanna buy a Big Green Egg? by Dan

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 15:16:02 +0000

I've had the XL for a month now. I've always been a serious BBQ'er/smoker/griller/beer drinker and cooking is sort of a hobby of mine. When I broke my offset smoker during a move I thought that it would be a perfect time to go ahead and finally get the egg. It had been a dream of mine for many years but the price always kept me away. Well, I came across some extra money during the move and finally pulled the trigger. First, let the dealership deliver and assemble. I seriously underestimated the job and had major trouble getting things to line up and seal correctly and I'm pretty handy. There are just too many small adjustments that need to be perfect that the instructions do not cover. In hindsight, the $100 delivery/assembly fee is well worth it.For $100 I would gladly pay to not have to mess with all of that and have it done correctly. It has taken me weeks to fine tune it, take off the lid and realign it...try to figure this and that out all the while not knowing for sure if what I was doing is right or not. Anyway....lets get to the food. Like i said, I've always been able to put off some damn delicious BBQ with my offset and propane grill. The BGE? Well, it puts off some good food but so far really nothing better than my other 2 devices. I just don't see what the big deal is really. It is much harder to control than people let on. Also, you need time, patience and experience to operate this thing. I keep just going back to the propane grill cause it's much easier, faster and consistent than the EGG is. When I do follow through and finish something on th EGG it's not the drop dead, unbelievable, best BBQ ever type of thing that I thought it would be. I mean, it's good....but I just can't really tell a big difference. I've actually messed up quite a few cooks on the egg. It seems that everything is either overlooked or undercooked. I never went through that with my other grills. Tried to smoke a brisket point...it came out decent. Went by a buddies house later that day and he had smoked a brisket in his 15 year old Oklahoma Joe offset and it was the best I ever had. I'm starting to think that meat quality and experience are what really matters. I mean now I'm sorry I didn't get an Oklahoma Joe for a quarter of the price. I guess I'm disappointed at this point. And for $1,400 I'm feeling a little slided too. I wish I had just gotten a normal smoker and poceted the other $800.
