  2. From the album 226ssi

  5. I have a wsm smoker and a Traeger, both have the pluses and minuses, The traeger is great for holding a consistent temp, especially in winter, smoke flavor is weak, so I use what they call amazen tube , where you fill with pellets and they slowly burn for about 4 hours to give you a good smoke flavor,, Its super convenient in that it takes 10 minutes and your ready to go. I like a smoke flavor but the rest of our house just like a lite smoke flavor so if this is your family this is the way to go, don't believe anyone if they say there pellet smoker sears, Use a propane grill and go for 550 to 600 temps, Thats why I have a weber grill. The traeger does a great burger to, in about half an hour. Now the weber smoker is great Has great smoke flavors , uses water bowl to keep meat moist but one draw back, you can't set and forget,, you'll be up early in the morning adding wood if your doing brisket or butts need to adjust to temp swings and wind, They tell you to use kingsford ,but I don't know who does , Just hard wood for me and flavored wood chunks I Love using real wood compared to pellets but sometimes I don't feel like tending a fire for 20 hours I got my traeger at costco for 699 and my weber smokey mountain on amazon 299 I know there are better ones but you might get one and next year you don't use it again so if you do like then in a few years upgrade to a real good one,. I only smoke about 150 lbs a year so these 2 work for me, And a word of advice Buy a good vacuum sealer, like ones at cabbalas not the ones at costco or sams, they can't handle lots of sealing at a time and if you do 2 butts at a time use different rubs, until you find a great one then you can perfect it, every smoke you do the meat won't be the same as last time, its not like cooking a burger
  6. This year we have a slip, but what we do isn't to complicated we back down the ramp, dunk the trailer so fender on trailer just covered with water I get in the boat lower trim start motor and while its warming up hang fenders ,put lines on rear and midship cleats toss lines to admiral on dock then lean over and unhook bowstrap back boat off trailer then put in neutral ,get off boat via swim deck grab rear line from admiral while she has midship line and walk the boat to end of dock, tie up , get in truck and park walk back ,untie and have a great day
  7. You guys have titles for boats, Not here in Colorado only for trailers
  8. Not being mean or anything but wouldn't you want a test drive I Know I would on a used boat, new might be a little different Maybe you can set up a few test drives on the same day
  9. Just wanted to say thanks and we got a foot of wet heavy snow I went down to the slip to take the snow off the cover it weighed a ton other boats canvas poles couldn't hold up the snow they had some big slushies in the front of there boat, mine was unscathed due to me coming down twice . Thanks for the advantage of me living 10 minutes away. Also did a good deed helping a old timer with his big cabin cruiser was listing badly from the heavy snow, He forgot his gloves and was freezing, He came from 60 miles away
  10. Got a slip and its my first and loving it so far. But now were expecting snow 7-15 inches tomorrow is my boat ok covered in the water, everyone here says yes because its only getting down to 30 and the waters a insulator . Any input will help, usually mothers day is our cutoff for snow but its a wacky year, we were 8 feet shy of snow from last years totals
  11. Don't be sorry you were right and if it wasn't for you I'd still be towing with a undersized vehicle,The older we get the more we know, but we still don't know everything. I love the truck so far, Sure beats my '74 chevy cheyenne, I miss that rust bucket though Especially the bench seat, aah The good old days!
  12. Nice to read everyones comments I work on cars for a living and I know there isn't a perfect one, I'm sure there isn't a perfect truck either and being almost 56 years old this is my first ford product, so I hope it treats me well, its dam big almost to big, at walmart it is to long for the spaces to park, but what room it has in the back seat area, almost can put a twin bed back there. the fuel mileage isn't great, but its not a prius, I have a Fj Cruiser and they say 22mpg but Im happy at 17mpg no way am I getting 22mpg. This ford goes up hills effortlessly and thats all I wanted, Brick jumped my bones a year and a half ago for towing my boat with the fj and it woke me up, If this lasts me a 100k more miles I'll be a happy camper. Now I just need a travel camper and I'll be ready for retirement
