You guys must be small town fellas, or still writing checks for purchases.  I'd much rather go thru self checkout,  unless I have a full cart load. I'm getting better at looking stuff up, but it's usually hassle free. Now if the dang beer stores would just go self checkout I'd quit getting carded... ;)

I'm not near as "old fashioned as that Glenn guy" as I always use plastic (points on that Cabelas card.  Just keep it paid off)  BUT..I don't work at those stores, not a trained check out and they sure do not give me any discounts for working.   They want my money, pay someone a wage to keep them there to take it.  And then don't ask to see my receipt on the way out.

I agree Scenic and I could care less if they want to see my receipt to make sure I am not just stealing a cart full of stuff. I could never understand why that some people are against it.

I hate standing in line & waiting for Granny to tell the person checking her out about how her family is doing.  :rolleyes: Typically, about 1 out of every 3 people look like they only shop 1 time a month when their SS or Snap $ comes in so the carts are full too. So, I rarely have more than 5-6 things & it's way faster to use the "Scan & Go".  Another thing I like is that I rarely get the " I rather be somewhere else, doing something else" feeling from the person  "helping" me checkout.  :sad:

Because if they can pay someone to stand there and watch me do it under camera, then pay someone who watches me come from that checkout,  that someone just stood over me watching me, then they can pay that same person to run a checkout lane.  Did you know if you scan an item and it does not scan and you thought it did you could be charged with theft?   Let their "trained" checkers miss that item.   :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Yupper, and try some of these gymnastics at FF then see what happens. Got a gift card? Rebate? Farm use? Non-taxable item? No effin' way I'm going to attempt that stuff with a self checkout. It wouldn't be so bad if they standardized the systems but every place is different and some are more user friendly than others. Cash Wise is the absolute worst. I got so frustrated I put the crap back on the shelf and walked out. Good thing their booze is cheap because I refuse to grocery shop there anymore. And damn straight I still write checks for stuff sometimes. Some places locally like the Red Leaf Cafe won't take plastic while others will charge 2% - 4% to cover their costs for using the card.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, Dotch was grilling Braille method rotisserie yard bird. Not sure what I seasoned it with because I couldn't see it. Pear wood in the smoker boxes. Best of all I was able to clean up the mess before the Mrs. got home. House still smells pretty good so best keep my spidey senses on high alert.

It was very tasty & I'm really looking forward to the leftovers. Since the wife isn't fond of chicken, this was the first whole bird I've attempted on this setup. I've done numerous lamb legs with it but that's about it. Now I gotta see if I've got balls enough to do a smaller turkey with the rotisserie. Guessing this chicken was ~ a 4 - 5 lb. model. Looking at a 9 - 12 lb. turkey perhaps. Reminds me I better get it bought today so it'll be thawed in time.

Looks to me you nailed it Dotch! A little bigger bird you just need to make sure you have enough heat. Speaking of heat, I've grilled 4 days straight and my running shoes are....crap, she found me!

No wonder the Mrs. is always after yer sausage boober!  :shocked:

Yep, I hear ya on the fire for doing a turkey. Forecasting sunny with a high of only 24 and WNW winds 15 -20 mph, gusting to 30. Luckily I can get the grill tucked in out of the wind, plus it's on the south side of the house. Figure I've done ~40 turkeys on the Weber altho this will be the 1st time doing one with the rotisserie. It adds a few more variables as the extension means additional space to heat. Will definitely want to make sure I have plenty of coals. Normally I err on the side of overkill. Generally a 12 lb. bird like this one takes about an hour and a half using the roasting rack & indirect heat, even when it's cold.

I know, it seemed pretty fast to me at first too. I used to automatically let them go at least 2 hours regardless, check the temp & they'd be 170 or better. A lot of those tended to be 15 - 17 lbs. with the pop-up timers. Sometimes the pop-up timers would go off, sometimes not depending on how much goo the turkey was basted with so I never relied on them. When we went with smaller birds, seemed like they got more dried out than I liked. I decided to start checking at an hour and a half & found them at 165. Time to come off.

We do almost all of our chicken up at the lake on the Weber rotisserie too. We have a corner by the backdoor of the garage that is well protected where it gets done. Really like that the meat stays so moist & the drippins give it a nice little smokey flavor too. Never done a turkey that way though.

Better day for grilling on Thanksgiving than some. Rotisserie worked altho we had to pin the wings to the body so they didn't flop. Just enough fire when it came off in ~ an hour & 45 minutes. Indirect, hackberry in the smoker boxes, seasoned with Sweet & Smoky rub, poultry seasoning & some seasoning salt. Basted every half hour w/a combo of grape jam, cranberry-grape juice, canola oil & special seasoning. Very moist & juicy. 🍗

I did 2 of these for the family, kept 1/2 for another dinner here at home and took 1 - 1/2. After a couple of care packages we brought home a few pieces of pie, all else was gone!

Rubbed with Simon and Garfunkel, smoked in black cherry and a single basting with Kerrygold.
Smoked @ 225 to 240f smoker temp then pulled with a temp in the center of the breast of 155f.

I didn’t get to have a Thanksgiving last week, and since the weather is nice today’s I picked up a fresh Butterball, 14lbs. injected with garlic butter, rubbed it with Carrabba’s rub, and into the fryer.
Turned out great!
