Cooking a brisket on our built in luxury smoker...


The wife just got herself a new Pit Boss pellet grill. I have to say, it's pretty awesome.

We have a built in smoker in the outdoor kitchen... Why so mad?...

I talked my wife out of being a vegan, and she's doing a keto diet with me so we are using the smoker again...

It came with the house. To me it looks custom made. They used weights from an Olympic set to hold up lids which are very heavy. The grill came with the house too and that's a 5k lynx... Jellus?...

Can’t see the second picture...

I’m assuming you’re talking about counter weights for the grill lid...

Just got back from doing an escape room with some friends. We barely got out in time (3 mins left) and only because one of us pretty much gave up and decided to peek through a letterbox to see if it was the end of the game while we were contemplating the solution for the last puzzle, which, as it turned out, was one big decoy. The code we needed was readable if you peeked through the letterbox.

Have you guys done (good) escape rooms? This was my 6th.

Yup - love an escape room.

They are quite prevalent around where I live. The most local one to me makes a point of using local historical references in it's puzzles, to reward those who take an interest in the community (see the "In Frost we trust spray paint... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Frost_(Chartist) ):

https://www.escaperoomsnewport.co.uk/

I've done a few here (Cardiff):

One here (Bristol):

And one here (Florida):

I didn't get around to doing one the last time we were in Singapore, but if I do go back I will 100% check one out.

My friends own this one, I've never tried it though.

I opened a retail forex trading account this week just for fun :)

I used to trade equities (TQQQ, SQQQ) but I can't anymore because of SEC rules with my employer (30-day hold, no leveraged products).

Do any of you guys trade stocks, futures, forex, etc?

Nah, never got into this online tech (bitcoin etc).

We did buy shares on the stock-market years ago on a hot tip from the employer of my Wife and we made a fair bit on money on selling. We bought for 20c and sold for $4.20. Hindsight, a wonderful thing.. We should have invested more :smirk:
