My wife put her foot down, and wants me to sell some of my excess smoking/cooking things.
The 'Longest yard Sale' is next week...

Guess I'll part with Chicken Smoker, a UDS, a big Cajun Cooker, gas grill, New Wave Oven, Mini Crock Pot and a Pressure Cooker.
(Never used in the 'Kitchen of my mom')
And a couple dozen cook books too.

She thinks excess equals for sale. Where did I go wrong?

QUESTION:
What cooking items does everyone have that you haven't used in a long time?

(Maybe I should have use the 'Chicken Smoker' and extra cooking items)

I have a Brinkman Stillwater (like a small Yoder) offset 1/4 in steel smoker that's been under the shed now for probably 8 years... It's got a tiny amount of rust, but not bad, especially compared to what I've seen 'round here. I paid something like $850 probably 15 years ago. Steel prices have gone WAY up since then. First $500 gets it.

If it was me I'd get a Big Box and fill it with her shoe collection, her hand bag collection all the war paint the ear rings and anything to do with any hobbies she has and park it all out there too. :twisted: it's only fair.

^^^ THAT chit's funny right there. :laugh:




To the OP:

I don't think I've cooked on my OKJ Upright ("Bandera style") since the end of 2011.

She's never mentioned selling anything. She's smart like that.....:heh:

NOOOOO don't do it!!

Before I found the Brethren, I had a Brinkmann offset (not the cheapo) that I used a few times with limited success, so I gave it away...:doh::doh:
I wish I still had it just to mod it up and play with it while I'm still working on the brick beast.

Find a friend that can help you stash some of your stuff or build a shed. :-D

You went wrong by not wearing the pants in your relationship.

My problem is that my hobby's outgrown our space. Hate to admit she's right though, it sets a bad president. Things have a way of getting complicated when you retire, and disposable income drys up. It's hell.
I haven't used the items I listed in over 6 yrs... I shouldn't miss them too much. The UDS was my first build...

Got any pictures of the uds? I'm in Decatur and might ride down and take it off your hands.

Don't part with the mini crockpot unless it's a duplicate. They are perfect for holding chili cheese dip at a party. I'll never get rid of mine unless it breaks down.

You lost your man card someone in your past.

The only time I would deem something that I don't want, I get rid of it. I don't let anybody else tell me otherwise.

thats how hoarding starts! :) but seriously though my better half sometimes realizes I want to get rid of things before I do and 99% of the time there is no regret.

I know when I have to get rid of stuff, if area's because cluttered I start purging. I like uncluttered space.

I've got a cheap bullet smoker from Home Depot. I think it cost $70. Used it twice. It has the electric filament. No vent holes, just a door. It is terrible. Could probably mod it up, but I'm not handy that way. Probably give it away.

I wouldn't be able to part with my first (although I don't have one to begin with). I had a hunk of junk Brinkmann that I got started on and it was starting to rust bad. I got my Lang and tossed that pos in the dumpster ... and regretted it every day since. I don't care if it sits in the corner and collects dust till it rusts away. That'll always be the first.

I still have the little red char-broiler vertical water smoker I bought about 10 years ago. It sits on a pallet in the corner of my basement next to the 55 gal drum that I'm going to turn into a uds when I have the time (lazy mod). I have not used that char-broiler in ages but I can not seem to part with it.

The most important part, after selling all the stuff you no longer use, WHAT items will you add to the collection with the profits?
