  1. This is the bad part. We probably couldn't afford the buyout this year anyways with the loss of revenue. Either way, I want Tanner gone before we make any coaching changes.
  2. We had a marvelous opening drive ending with Harris running it in for a TD. It hasn't been pretty since then.
  3. Coach Muschamp has a very special message for anyone going to the game today: NSFW
  4. I chose 24-21 good guys on my ESPN College Pick'Em sheet. I will stick with that.
  5. CFN predicts a 24-23 Gamecock win. https://collegefootballnews.com/2020/09/tennessee-vs-south-carolina-prediction-game-preview
  6. It wouldn't be the first time, that's for damn sure.
  7. I woke up a little earlier than usual in my dorm room at the Roost. My only class that day was not until after lunch, so I had some time to kill. I decided to turn on the news for a change. I hadn't watched the news in a long time, so I figured it was time to see what was going on in the world. I could see that something was going on at the World Trade Center. The news anchors were still confused, and thought maybe it was a bomb or something. So I turned up the volume a little and paid a little closer attention. Just then, the second plane hit. It wasn't long before they began calling it a terrorist attack, so I called up my National Guard unit to find out if we were being mobilized. We weren't, yet. I stayed glued to the TV until it was time for my class. Nothing official had been put out that class was canceled, so I went. The professor gave a little speech at the beginning of class, expressing his dismay that classes had not been canceled. Then he said that anyone who wanted to leave could do so, and that he would not give them any negative marks for attendance. I was also supposed to have a physical therapy appointment at Ft. Jackson that afternoon, but I knew better than to try getting on base. So that was my first and only ever missed appointment in the military. These days, I'm a contractor working with the Marine Corps, and it still amazes me that there are kids serving who were not even born when 9/11 happened. They will never be able to grasp just how much our world changed that day.
  8. As for the method. I pulled the ribs out of the package early this morning, removed the membrane on the back, and began the seasoning process. That started with a light dusting of salt, pepper, and garlic powder on both sides. I let that sit on them for about 15 minutes or so. Then I brushed on a very light coating of mustard sauce, just enough to help the rub stick. Then I patted on a good coating of Killer Hogs. I let the ribs sit in the refrigerator for a few hours to get the rub set. That picture from above is right after I pulled them out of the fridge. I let the ribs come to room temp for about an hour while I made a mop sauce of 1/2 cup ACV , a little chicken base, and 1tbsp of the rub. I got the smoker to a temp of 225 with a chunk each of hickory and apple wood along with 1/4 of an onion. The ribs went on for about 3 hours. I mopped them once an hour during that 3 hour cook before putting them in foil with a little brown sugar, honey, rub, and some of the mop sauce.They went back in the box for another hour and a half before I pulled them out of the foil, dusted the top with another light coat of the rub, and returned them to the smoker for another half hour. That gave them a very tender texture, but not falling apart. The meat still clung to the bone but came away clean when bitten into.
  9. Buy this rub. It's probably the best BBQ rub I've ever tasted, including all of the ones I've made myself.
  10. This is definitely a success. The flavor and the color are unreal.
  11. Thanks man. I'm also trying out a new rub. I found Malcolm Reed's Killer Hogs rub in Walmart a few days ago. It's always gotten good reviews, so I figured I'd give it a whirl.
  12. So I thoroughly screwed up a rack of ribs a few weeks ago. They tasted good, but they were dry and a bit on the crunchy side. It was clear that my thermometer finally failed me. So today I'm going to use my iGrill to keep track of the air temp while I smoke some baby backs. I tried it last weekend with some wings, and it seemed to work pretty well, but wings are a lot more forgiving. I'll be putting these bad boys in the box in just a little while. I'll also be trying a variant of the 3-2-1 method with maybe something like 1-1.5 hours in the foil.
  13. That's a pretty good marinade. I chopped up some wings early this morning, and put them in that marinade for about 5 hours. I opted to throw them in the smoker rather than grilling them. With no other sauces or rubs, they turn out pretty decent. I think next time I'll do the marinade then rub them with a little magic dust before cooking. Magic dust, for anyone interested: https://eatwithtom.com/hot-wing-dust-spice-recipe/
