You Are Here — If it sometimes feels like everything is spinning completely out of control, you’re not wrong…

Another week closer to the end, friends. Winter is nigh and it doesn’t take more than 5 minutes of watching the news or scanning the headlines to know that. By now even the ostriches can feel it in their guts.
But fuck it, it’s Christmas, so get your shopping in folks.
It’s Last Call in more ways than the obvious.
Shit tons to do this weekend, including helping a buddy out and performing the millwork on a pair of cylinder heads for a 383 Mopar. Problem is he hasn’t yet acquired the intake manifold he intends to use, which means I have to port match based on specs and a templet I found on the Internet. This could go wrong quite spectacularly. Still, though, I’m looking forward to it. If I could just spend my days in my own shop without the bothers and bullshit of, you know, outside leaching in, I’d be in a considerably better mood most of the time.
Other than that, not much on the radar – a little bourbon, a little egg nog, a little more beer – we’ll call it the Holidays.
Have a great weekend and get ‘em in.

Bacon Rings

Because bacon.


2 to 3 peeled and sliced onions
1 pack of sliced pork belly bacon


Set an indirect fire on your grill for about 375 degrees. Take 1 to 2 bacon slices and weave them around each onion ring. Set all of them on the grill, cover, and cook for about 50 minutes. Uncover, flip each one, then cook about another 30 to 40 minutes.
When done, take ‘em off the grill and let them cool for at least 30 minutes.
At this point, for me, I’m good to go, but if you really want to punch yourself in the heart from the inside-out, whip up a simple beer batter of salt, honey, flour and beer, batter each one, then fry up in peanut oil until the batter sets.
No, seriously, I’m not trying to kill you good people.

    About 2 more hours and I’ll embark on a 3-week vacation that includes stops at my local range (to play with new baby) as well as Nassau and Freeport. In that order.

    I love Christmas.

      Sounds like a great time.
      Let me know how you like the XDm.
      That’s with the 4 1/2 inch barrel, right?
      Happy shooting and Merry Christmas El B.

        I’ll try to make a report Monday. If you don’t hear from me, assume it was awesome.
