Rich's May visit this year was packed with activities. His new Lexus RX350 was once again an example of how he can "out gadget" me. Clearly it's time for me to get a new car - so we had fun visiting Dealerships to test drive other models (it would be sacrilegious for me to copy a college buddy).
Rich knew I had no courage to match his gadget challenge when it comes to a car - but his secondary crowing was about his new Smoker from Home Depot. That was like "laying down the gauntlet" like the old college days. SO.... not to be outdone in a lower priced challenge - Rich and I went out shopping for Smokers.
Now Rich's Smoker was the traditional charcoal type so I needed my Smoker to be different (naturally). Originally I had determined propane was the way to "beat" Rich in the gadget category. Less fuss, Less muss! I had picked out the propane model and was walking out the store when Rich said ..... "What's this electric one with a remote control?" That was the ticket - it was like gadget/technology leapfrogging and I got the Master Built Electric Smoker.
I've had great fun, great times, with friends and family Smok'in Salmon, Ribs, Chicken, and Flank Steak. I happened to go to MasterBuilt's web site and discovered their Core Values scrolling across the bottom. WOW - Simple, to the point, and rich in wisdom - Spoken..... and Smok'in Values!
