I thought twice before I did this, and for anyone who is offended by the liberal Eastern press, I apologize for perhaps being the only guy on this board to ever post a link to the New York Times
It doesn't hurt to scout the other team. I live about 50 miles north of Hartford City mentioned in the article and the corn around here is in real trouble. It is starting to tassel out and is only about 3 to 4 feet tall in the good fields. The leaves are going from curled to brown. I see trouble this fall as the gasahol plants are competing with the food producers for what little corn there will be. What little rain we are getting is coming from thunderstorms that pop up from nowhere dump a little rain, then fizzle out. Not good at all.
That is just wrong. I had my smoker going a week ago but I let the hose run slowly around it while it was hot. I have a gas grill but it is even too hot to fire it up. Looking at our 4th day of 100+ to set a new recordHere is a first for me though, about 30 mins south of me, Clarksville, TN has a ban on using your grill.
