    Re: On a lighter note - What did Santa bring?

    I got clothes, a book and several other gifts. The best gift this year was a wonderful woman named Pat. My wife of 44 years died almost 6 years ago and we have continued to have Christmas Eve at my house with most of her family attending. She was the oldest of 6 kids. This year Pat was with me she is very well accepted by the in-laws and my kids and grandkids. The best Christmas present in a long time.

    I got a Milwaukee electric ratchet, already used it, great help. Also, we moved to a smaller house a couple years ago, but I added a nice, heated shop. Right off the kitchen, we warmed it up and set up tables and Christmas lights and hosted a wonderful family gathering on Christmas Eve. Warm socks and beef jerky too, I consider myself a lucky man.

    JP, is that a picture you took at your house, or off the internet? Either way - funny! (and we can relate with the squirrels and bird feeders).

    I got an InkBird smart wireless BBQ thermometer so I can keep an eye on how the cooking is doing with out leaving the kitchen. The ham is cooking in the brick oven outside. It has up to 4 inputs and will graph the temperature. Probable lets the world know I am cooking as well.

    Tappeque is also another good one for keeping track of meat temps, etc.

    Re: On a lighter note - What did Santa bring?

    I've a kitchen oven with digital oven temp preset and it's bogus. Had to get an oven thermometer to set temp accurately. I cook better on a Weber kettle with charcoal.

    And I envy David's brick oven. I remember the photos.

    My oven also has a digital control. The only issue I have with it is when the power goes out I can only use the stove top.
