    Pulled Pork - Need Recipe

    I have done a ton of pork butts over the years, the key is low and slow. I have an electric cookshack smoker and I do mine at 225 deg till hit hits about 200 deg internal temp, usually takes 10-15 hours depending on size. A good dry rub is all you need on the outside, after it cools a bit...

    Anchor, Chain and Rode. Lengths?

    That's alot of chain, I would go with the 60 feet mentioned as it would be plenty to keep the hook down. Also if you do keep all that chain make sure to keep some bolt cutters hand in case of an emergency.

    Guy cook his own nuts....and people pay to eat it!!!

    Hope he at least vacuum packed them for the 2 month freeze, nothing worse than paying 250.00 for freezer burnt testicals.

    Safety on Mother Ocean:

    So true Dean, we have also been trying to find the right life raft. With our relatively cold water you will not last long bobbing in the water, I hope to never have the need to use it ,but we are getting one soon!

    Safety on Mother Ocean:

    Great post... So many guys out there put safety last in an attempt to get some fish and be an Internet hero. Running at night is serious business, we have added a bunch of safety gear this year including an EPIRB and PFD's that we wear while underway all the time.. Keep it safe guys, nobody...

    Collision suspected in yacht mishap that killed 3

    Very hard to argue with the spot tracking. My guess is they ran into the island and the big swells destroyed the boat, highly doubt it was ran over. RIP.
