    Cool. What else are you planning on doing with the hides? A little cultural appropriation maybe?

    PA Game Commission investigating viral video of kids abusing deer "Abusing" doesn't really do justice to the behavior of these two psychopaths. First video: There was a 2nd video where the head-stomping continued and they talk about trying to rip the buck's antlers off while it's still alive, but YouTube took it down. EDIT: Despite having the same last name, further research reveals that the woman making the stupid comment about 'possum-stomping is not the mother of the Smith boy, so I've deleted that part.

    A good dose of cheese hides a multitude of sins, and is more often than not the right answer when the culinary question is, "How do I make this better?"

    I've found several restaurant chilis (including, unfortunately, the chili at Tolbert's in Grapevine, TX...here in the D/FW area) that use ground beef to have what I've always described as a dry "mealy" texture that I don't like. That might be the same thing you experienced. For that and other reasons I always use cubed beef. I also eschew long cooking in a crock pot as I've never found that chili benefits from it.

    I see someone has forgotten the first rule of shooting (applies to both firearms and archery). It's always the equipment's fault. That said... Jon, would something like a graphite lubricant work better at very low temps (assuming that's not already what's being used)?

    I think I've mentioned that observation here before...a long time ago. Or maybe not. I'm old. Yeah, spices tend to become muted with time in refrigeration, especially the heat of capsaicin. You know what you have to do. <iframe src="https://giphy.com/embed/26gspjl5bxzhSdJtK" width="480" height="360" frameBorder="0" class="giphy-embed" allowFullScreen></iframe><p><a href="https://giphy.com/gifs/mylabbox-seinfeld-not-that-theres-anything-wrong-with-26gspjl5bxzhSdJtK"></a></p>

    That's how you know you're doing it right. If it gets to be a bit much just have a glass of milk with it. And guajillos, being one of the lesser-known (but tastier) peppers in Gringoland can be hard to find if you don't have any Hispanic markets. But, as with all things, there's always BezosMart... https://www.amazon.com/Guajillo-Dried-Whole-Chile-Peppers-4oz/dp/B07MJVKH2R/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?keywords=dried+guajillo&qid=1573967023&sr=8-4

    I've never had any trouble getting cubed stew meat falling-apart tender with 3 hours of braising. But I'm thinking that the perfect answer to both would be to find yourself a small brisket flat, smoke it like you would any other brisket, chop it up and into the pot with it. Smoked brisket makes a damned fine chili meat.

    The recipe I linked calls for only 2 lbs of meat (cubed chuck), not 4. And it should result in enough chili for 3-4 servings, or slightly more/less depending on the presence/absencebof a side (cornbread, for instance) and how hungry you are.

    A few years ago my wife and son gave me the two-piece Octane quiver. It had a magnet in the hood that held the arrows in place rather than foam. The problem was that they had an engineering/manufacturing defect with the aluminum part that attached each half to the bow that caused them to just sheer right off when you tried to tighten them down at all. I contacted Octane and they acknowledged the problem, saying it was an issue with one of their suppliers, but that it had since been worked out. They sent me replacements for the failed parts...and the replacements promptly failed in exactly the same way. A shame, really, as I really liked everything else about the quiver.
