    Not everywhere does the belt whipping thing. My place doesn’t, it does an iron man thing where you roll with everyone on the mat but only for promotions to brown or black these days.

    The Smoking and BBQ thread

    I got a lot of Weber stuff for my birthday, including the pizza stone and the rotisserie. It's been a good week - just about got the weather to spend most of the week grilling, roasting and making dough. Rotisserie in action (not sure how to embed): https://imgur.com/BTLbT5n I need to get a peel to go with the pizza making, it's a faff to try and get the pizza onto the stone in one piece. Had my first go at pork belly too - crackling wasn't great so that's something to work on but otherwise very nice.

    First go at smoking a boneless pork shoulder and making pulled pork. It was really good - best result on the grill so far. I have the next week off work so I’m going to try and BBQ as much as possible.

    Oculus Rift (VR Headset)

    I like the idea of the Rift S - the pricing seems quite reasonable and the lack of tracking cameras and associated mess/hassle is appealing to me. Quest would be cool but I want to be able to use my PC for more demanding software.
  5. I hope it does well but too expensive for me personally. Given how the announcements were timed so close to Oculus news, I was hoping that Valve would launch this as somewhat of a spoiler with a tempting price point. As it is, I think it pushes me further towards the Rift S as a first VR device.

    What are you reading at the moment?

    Awesome - I'm glad to hear that it's up there with the previous two. His last book was a real disappointment after all. I recommended the Power of the Dog to my wife and she was really pissed off at me for recommending a book where but she ultimately agreed it's an amazing book!

    Barry - Bill Hader, HBO Hitman Comedy

    I'm still watching, I'm just one episode behind. It seems to be one of those shows that will end up being a cult classic though maybe not so popular during its run. I like Barry and Fuches, but I love Hank and Gene - hopefully those characters get some interaction at some point.

    I used the diffuser plate on the Weber today, smoked a rack of beef ribs. It was my first long low cook and it was pretty good. The temps stayed at 115c for 6/7 hours no problem. End result was pretty good - I think I could have gotten away with removing them earlier but my probe positioning perhaps wasn’t the best. Happy with it but should be better next time.

    I got one of these just before the long weekend. Absolutely chuffed with my purchase - yet to do any low and slow cooks but I did roast an awesome chicken.

    And the main event is off, Whittaker has a hernia. https://www.cbssports.com/mma/news/ufc-234-fight-card-robert-whittaker-hernia-out-of-middleweight-title-defense-vs-kelvin-gastelum/
  11. His voice is annoying definitely, but he's a good writer and his podcast efforts so far have been interesting. I signed up anyway - found a cheap returning user deal and got Limmy's book with my credit. 2 episodes into the Ronson podcast - decent so far. First episode is all setup of what happened and the people involved in August/Mercedes' life. Second episode starts to get going with some background industry nastiness, family interviews, conflicting stories and so on.
  12. Has anyone listened to the new Jon Ronson one - The Last Days of August? I don’t have a subscription right now, might sign up to grab this.

    GSP has had controversies regarding greasing so his record isn’t 100% squeaky clean. I think it’s because of the allegations against GSP that corner men are no longer allowed to apply vaseline. I love GSP and all but the greasing thing seems to be completely forgotten. It’s less extreme than PEDs but still, it’s there.

    Into the Breach - #perfectforswitch

    I’m new to this as well. I hit about 10 hours of playtime before I bought a new squad. Now I’m deep into it again with the rusted hulks. I was having a good run last night before I realised it was 1.30am and I really needed to go to bed. Really hits the same spot as advance wars but in digestible chunks. I have a lot of work travel coming up and this is definitely getting installed on my work laptop to pass away the hours travelling.

    It says a lot that they’re moving a whole event on short notice to another city to keep Jones on the card. Christmas must be cancelled in the ufc office this year.
