I'm kinda torn.  The Peacock+ promo code gives you four months for $10.  That's not bad.

Or, if you're a Comcast subscriber and have either their Flex or X1 platforms, you get it without paying MeekMahan one red cent.

You can't see Martinsville on this map because it's totally covered up by the rain.

/And also because it's tiny.

If I aim the idol at Tampa, will it direct all that rain away from the track and ruin MeekMahan's Biggest Night Part I?

Well, My intent for tonight's race was to have BBQ sauced smoked chicken thighs to eat while watching the race.  They have been in the smoker for 2 hours now, and I am about to go and kick up the temperature on the smoker grill to do the final cook push on it.  Now if the race is tomorrow, depending on the time it starts, I may have to get up early and start smoking the brisket I have for a mid race snack.

If I was at my computer, I would tell Cole to shut up here, and post a Pacedog there.

Or am I in the Mania thread saying this?  All I know is, I've aimed the idol at Tampa.

We were just at Lowe's buying appliances for the new house. They apparently have smokers that are compatible with wifi and Bluetooth.

I was about to end that sentence with "for some reason," but then I realized that it actually sounds like a very smart way to monitor and adjust it without having to be right next to it.

I was looking for a pellet grill recently. the Pit Boss ones they have at Lowe's seem nice.  they have wifi and bluetooth, but I don't even know if that's something I'd ever even use.

stopped at Walmart the one day and saw they had the older Pit Boss model (the 700) on clearance for $250 so I grabbed one.  so far it's worked nicely. only really have done chicken, burgers, steaks, and a stuffed pork lion on it - haven't ventured into brisket or pork shoulder territory with it yet for a long cook.  I do have a corned beef in the fridge that needs to get turned into a pastrami though

/don't think this race is happening tonight

Per Nascar twitter:

- 8:45 Drivers report to cars
- 8:50 Invocation
- 8:58 Command
- 9:10 Estimated #BlueEmu500 green flag

Still not optmistic about this race tonight.

Sorry it took me so long to respond to this.  Was eating chicken.  I am old school when it comes to smoking meats.  Wifi or bluetooth is nice, but nothing beats cooking by the seat of your pants.  I upgraded from a wood chunk smoker to a pellet smoker 4 years ago, and have never looked back.  I have a Pit Boss smoker, and only use the competition pellets.  Best thing I have ever done for cooking meats.

It is going to somewhat happen.  Don't know how much they will get in until the next downpour.  I seriously doubt we will make it to the end of the 2nd stage to make it official
