Re: Charcoal BBQing

From what I've seen both the Green Egg and Komado Joe have lifetime warranties on the ceramics. Leaning towards the Komado Joe for the rack setup and the ability to set it up for both direct and indirect cooking at the same time. Indeed they do have lifetime warranties. Apparently, you have to be v...

Re: Charcoal BBQing

Looking forward to getting one next year when we buy a house. Torn between a Green Egg or a Komado Joe. I just ordered a komodo style yesterday! I landed on the Big Steel Keg by Broil King. Similar to other komodos, but it's got a steel exterior. Read some reviews where the ceramic ones cracked. Re...

Re: Legalize pot, here we go again .....

As far as pot being decriminalized/legalized... It's just a matter of time. Once the govt figures out a sure fire way to control and tax it you can bet your ass it'll be legal. Therin lies the problem. How do you control and tax something that people can just grow in the dirt? It's akin to trying t...

Re: Edmonton Police Service Recruiting

Is that by car or public transit? I apologize, I should've specified that I plan to use the transit system in order to save some money. Thanks for the response! Yeah. That's by car. I'm not sure how much public transit goes to the base, but, yeah, it could take a loong time. You mentioned you can s...

Re: Appealing a Deferral

I have not heard of a deferral appeal being approved. Frankly, in my eyes it would probabaly cast the person in a more negative light as entitled and not willing to listen.
