    Attempted Carding

    Two words: Bethlehem Steel A few more words: Union greed mixed with conspiring with management cost thousands of people their entire pensions. Many of my elderly neighbors........... The site that was once the flagship of the Bethlehem Steel Empire.....where every US Cannon was cast during the civil war.......is now a fu*king casino and shopping center. Thats all I have to say about that.

    Absolutely, however the graphics he has on there are **FAR** from period correct (not only in style and font but wording as well.) I am confident that it was the "Bureau of Fire" at the time and the maltese cross is not correct.

    One would think that with the amount of money he dumped into the restoration he could have the correct gold leaf graphics applied.

    MACK TRUCKS "TRUCKTOBERFEST 2018" For those of you who have been asking: Due to some planning conflicts, there will be no Trucktoberfest 2018. It has also been decided to switch to an every other year format. Look for the next Trucktoberfest in Fall of 2019. Please spread the word.

    Among other issues, yes that is one of them. Lots of rot, the aerial is not certified, the list goes on. For 19,500 he'd better at least offer a current certification. Ask him what he paid for it........

    And isn't worth 1950.00 let alone 19,500.

    Among the coolest things I ever did...........

    No, the recipes are all videos on their website. Here is a recipe I created on my own, which I did at the picnic at Macungie as well as the Mack Museum Christmas Party: Smoke Roast Beef One (or more!) round roasts Yellow Mustard Dry Rub Spices -Start your charcoal according to the device instructions (I use a chimney) while waiting for the charcoal to get going, rinse the (room temperature) roast beef in warm water, pat dry with a paper towel. Apply yellow mustard liberally, coating the entire roast. Then apply the dry rub to suit your tastes. Put the charcoal into the pit barrel (I find it MUCH easier to pour the chimney activated charcoal into the empty basket OUT of the barrel, put the remaining un-fired charcoal on top of the fired charcoal, and then use heavy welding gloves to drop the basket into the barrel.) Then hang the meat. Put the lid on and for a three to four pound round roast, it will take 2-4 hours to develop an internal temp of 160 degrees (a very pink and juicy medium) I like it less pink (but not destroyed.) so I bring it up to about 165 internal temp. It all looks intimidating but once you get the hang of it you will be fine. Just don't do any expensive cuts right out of the gate- no briskets or rib roasts until you get the hang of it!!!!

    Among the coolest things I ever did...........

    Get the basic 18.5" $299 set (no add-ons.) Yes it is worth every penny and if you are not a good cook or you have never had a smoker before, it is perfect. As long as you follow the "basic" instructions (with a little fine-tuning/trial-and-error of your own as you go along) you will love it. Check out their website, they have a lot of great videos on how to use it and also a lot of recipes, too. If you need any help along the way you are welcome to contact me.

    Thank you President Tump

    Does not get any more simple. I like to be able to come on certain forums and read what everyone has to say about what is going on in this country- except that commie pinko gearheadgirlllllll or whatever the heck her name was. She really took things WAY too far to the left. Mind you left is not necessarily a bad thing, but these days JFK is spinning in his grave at what has become of the Democratic Party. But I digress. If you don't like or don't want to read what folks have to say, simply move on to the next topic.

    Connecticut Tire shops?

    Correct. But I believe Brocky is asking if anyone on here regularly uses or knows of a reputable shop with knowledgeable personnel that will not take his son for a ride.

    ............and on the news tonight, Harleyt Davidson first big corporation to announce that they are moving some production to Europe as a direct result of the retaliatory tarriffs being placed on american products. He is doing well domestically but his foreign policy sucks. That is all. Carry on.

    Giant Macks in the Artic

    After my father got out of the Navy in 1963, he went to work at Univac in Blue Bell, Pa. and worked on Univac when they had boatloads of NASA/Apollo money. He was a machinist and mostly worked on printers and other hardware. Met Admiral Grace Hopper once.
