Overbuilt? Ya think? Looks like an apartment complex. You sure there's no rental income in the plan?

The first time, it seemed great. Now the 3rd time I've used it and the BBQ temp seems way off (not matching the smoker gauge).

I have something similar (not as fancy) but it's accurate. I have three digital thermometers including a high-end instant read and I've checked them several times, only a couple of degrees off.

That said, temps in a smoker can vary drastically depending on airflow. I lay my probe on the grate next to or between the meat being smoked, and during steady smoking with little airflow thru the smoker, the probe is quite a ways off the one built into the lid..

I bought one myself a couple of years ago, what a difference between that and the (reasonably expensive) Craftsman I had before. It did tear up the blade belt already, though..

I bought this:


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001BSTJIO

.. for my S95, and am I glad I did! Worked great both in the water and on the beach. No concerns about the camera getting wet, but better yet, no issues with sand or sunscreen. I took 1600+ pics on this trip and this case was on for most of them. Hundreds of shots while snorkling and even took it scuba diving (only to about 15'), so issues.

Highly recommended!

My wife's Subaru Outback has now become my winter vehicle (better mpg than my truck) and we got her an '05 4Runner this past Monday. It rides very smoothly and gets better mpg than I thought it would (20-21mpg average).

The salesman told me gators couldn't see me if I went with camo.
Or maybe they said "boaters"...

Sweet! Nike Vandals. Just like the ones Reese wore in the original Terminator movie. "Come with me if you want to live!"

That Valkyrie looks like it just came off the showroom floor.

I just got a similar one of these for my iPhone 4S while down in Destin. I didn't have the balls to actually try to take it underwater for pictures though. I used it more just to keep the sand out on the beach and still be able to use it and listen to music.
