In one week's time, look at the interest showed to this one

I guess this place IS what WE make it
I don't subscribe to the idea that because attendence may be lower than at times in the past, PT is somehow bankrupt of interest and curiosity. But, it's become somewhat of a fasionable hysteria here. LOL!

I could care less how many people migrate to FB. I've seen it. Not impressed in the least.

That's right, not the QUANTITY of subscribers but the QUALITY that matters

Is this giveaway available to Canadian forum members? Not that it would prevent anyone from participating in that thread, just wondering.

It's a random drawing from the entries.

I was not given any location limitations for it.

Its a nice gesture, and I thank you. But without a true reward for content, other than merely participating, it will hardly attract the time for a thoughtful post.

I really believe the giveaway question is too important to simply draw a lucky response. I believe this one deserves some scrutiny, critical review, and a vote from the participants. Sorry if I'm the Debbie Downer, but I just wanted to share my opinion.

Yeah, your response to the giveaway showed your thoughts already. The drawing may be random but if the responses do not actually reply to the question, they will be removed. If you don't want to sincerely respond, then don't enter.

Sorry,

It was an example of me cruising by the "Today's Posts" page, and not being prepared to give a serious answer to an important question. But the inticement was too great for me not to participate!

I cleaned it up by the way.

My sincere apologies,

John

I just read this thread for the first time. To the OP question, I try. I really try. I poke the PM 200 users and the Behr users every chance I can.

Are there really any dedicated users of either to muster up an engaging and heated conversation? I don't think so. But that's just my opinion.

We need politics not paint to stir things up. If its any measure, I think last I checked, the OT forum draws a heck of alot of interest.

How about posting some granola recipes or macrame patterns. That should liven things up.

Point well taken. It wouldn't be nearly as entertaining as a PT member going bonkers over SW and the painting hacks that use them.

I think with the Christmas season upon us, we would garnish some robust discussions about favorite food and beverage recipes.

Slow cooked Turkey ?

Deep fried Turkey?

Roast Beast ?

Egg nog ?

best crackers with Brie ?

Roasted Leg of Venison

Ingredients:
  • 1 whole bone-in venison hind leg (about 12-15 pounds), trimmed and washed
  • 4 cups beef stock (or game stock if available)
  • 3 Tbsps. vegetable oil
Rub ingredients
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 8 cloves of garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup fresh rosemary, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup fresh thyme leaves
  • 3 Tbsps. crushed Juniper berries
  • ¼ cup kosher salt
  • ¼ cup freshly ground peppercorns
Directions

  1. Prepare the Rub: Combine the rub ingredients in a small bowl and mix until they are combined into a paste-like consistency. Rub the mixture into the venison. Add a touch more olive oil if needed to help the rub spread evenly. Wrap the venison in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 12 hours.
  2. Start Roasting: Remove the meat from the refrigerator and let it return to room temperature before cooking. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Drizzle the venison with the vegetable oil and gently spread to coat evenly. Put the venison on a rack in your biggest roasting pan. Roast for 1 hour, with no interruptions.
  3. Baste: Bring the stock to a low simmer in a pan. Once warmed, turn the roast and baste. Use about half the stock then close the oven and roast for another hour. Repeat the same process after the second hour of roasting with the remaining stock. Let the roast cook for another 15 minutes before testing for desired doneness in the thickest part of the roast with a meat thermometer. (120 degrees for rare, 126 degrees for medium) Keep in mind that the roast will continue to cook out of the oven.
  4. Remove and Rest: Once it has reached your desired doneness, remove the roast to your cutting board and let it rest while tented under foil. This is one of the most important steps to preserve the meat’s inner juices. After 20 minutes, carve the leg of venison and serve your sure to be salivating guests.

How about offering a work truck. You may turn this sight from graveyard to beach front property.

You might have noticed that most of the Australian members of this forum have disappeared to their own Australian painting contractors forum on Facebook.

There seems to be a more friendly banter over there. I hope this site can have a dramatic makeover.

When you think about it, it probably makes more sense for them.
