Port in the S#$% Storm

Post by pariah1107 on Thu Jun 20, 2013 9:47 pm

Just wanted to say thank you Full Count, for being a safe harbor in the storm of baseball card forums. While there are sometimes days between new posts, at least threads are not pointless platforms for shameless self-promotion or worse, ugly mud-slinging for public consumption.  

I have found my time here to be very informative, and the members a pleasant, supportive group free from drama. While I have not participated in the B/S/T side of the board often, transactions with individuals on the board have always been excellent; whether Jay's sauce or consignments with Lee. So, a heartfelt thank you to FC & all members here.

Respectfully, Ty

I can second that. I've been on other baseball card forums, and they often seem largely like marketing mechanisms. There's a lot of genuine and interesting discussion here, and people who truly seem to love the game and talking about it. I'm glad I joined.

One major reason why this forum is so great is that it is ad-free.  The other forums are motivated by financial interests to some extent, either through banner ads profiting from page views, or because the board is associated with a certain company.

Because there is no profit motive, there is no financial incentive to keep someone around who is needlessly stirring the pot - and likewise, no reason to ban people who are rightfully stirring the pot against a certain company.

The credit for that belongs to Ben and Jay.  This is not to say that the other online communities can't be useful and serve a certain function - they do.  But for a safe place to go to have positive conversations with experienced collectors, Full Count is terrific.

Thanks guys!!! But really, contrary to what you read from other mods on other forums, it really isn't that hard to run a forum. Pretty much all we have to do is read the forum. Occasionally someone steps out of line and we will PM them and let them know that what they did/said was inappropriate and they will will change the behavior or they just never come back. Spammers get instabanned. I think we have only had to ban one person that wanted to be an active participant because they weren't able to honor one simple request we made.

Hey, thanks for the compliments Ty and everyone else. It has been a pleasure being a part of this community since we started up FC in 2007. We may not have thousands of members and big time traffic, but there is a ton of great info stored away in our database and our members have always been super-helpful in addressing people's questions and concerns. We also have a knack of uncovering some pretty cool finds over the years too!

I also think it's important to keep the forum ad-free for a multitude of reasons (Jamie already stated them, quite eloquently I might add). And we can keep the ads off at a minimal cost (only $25/year). On that note, we just re-upped our ad-free service for another year. I was meaning to do that back in April, but have been off the forum lately with a fairly busy work/personal situation. Glad to be back! You'll be seeing more of me now that I'm on vacation!

free bbq sauce from jay once in awhile wouldn't hurt the morale here tho...

tbh i've never marinaded anything in my life, or even bbq by myself.  do we just rub the sauce onto the meat and leave it overnight jay?  is that how it works?

Easiest way to marinade is put the meat in a zip lock bag, pour a bunch of sauce in and let it sit overnight making sure to turn it over a few times. The other way is to put it in a bowl an cover the piece of meat with sauce. Piercing the meat a bunch of times with a fork will help the sauce penetrate deep into the meat.

Okay, our last two threads in the Bullpen have both gone on wild tangents towards BBQ'ing!  I know that it is summer, but fellas, please!  Stay on topic, lol.  nono


Btw, I think if you are in a rush you can get away with marinating for 2-3hrs in the fridge and you will be alright.

If you don't have a grill, I recommend getting a little tiny weber grill for under $50 - you can cook everything on there.  Then get the woodchips from Whole Foods.  The small round grill is best because it centralizes the heat, and then the woodchips give it that smokey flavor.

Just put a little salt, pepper, paprika, thyme and rosemary on the whole chicken and put some tinfoil underneath (to prevent the fat from dripping on the coals to start a fire).  Then take a couple bricks and put one on each side to prop up the lid.

It will be the best chicken you've ever had! (ok, this is not a recipe that involves marinating)

It's the bullpen. You don't really expect things to stay on topic do you? jocolor

Jay, if you make millions off your BBQ sauce, you've got to buy everybody on here (regular posters, at least) a rare 19th century type card, ok?

I'm putting in an early request for a HOFer... naughty

Ty, my product will NEVER be found on Wal-Mart shelves. I have more respect for myself and my business. Then there is the fact that I've known a couple of people that have gone through that process. Both were told after successful test runs that they were required to outsource their production overseas and they dictated the price they were going to pay for the product if they wanted to remain on the slef. Both walked away. One of them went on to make even more money after getting off the shelves and becoming a specialty tool maker.

Stir fry sauce isn't sexy, so I tell people it's BBQ sauce to lure them in.

Fourth of July BBQ. Menu: 12 lbs. pork ribs, Baked Beans w/Bacon, Mac Salad w/celery & black olives, 2 halves garlic/parmesan french bread. Tried Jay's new sauce, his tomato based KC on these ribs (only 6 lbs. pictured). Damn! Might be my new favorite... but they're all sooo good. Hope everyone had a safe and happy Fourth.



Smoked salmon, fettucine alfredo w/shrimp on the menu for Daytona tomorrow.bananarama

Heh! Smoked, using mesquite chips soaked in PBR. Smoked at 225 for 8 hrs. Brushed on the KC sauce 6 hours into the smoke. Ribs melted like butter, nice and moist, bones removed cleanly with a slight tug. Nice job on the sauce Jay. NASCAR BBQ's started last year with four guys and a case of PBR, now twenty and a pony keg. Local band, The Dogtown Duo, are playing prior to Daytona. Reviews of the sauce are self explanatory. Talk soon about another order.

LMK know soon. Right now, looks like I won't put the KC sauce in production until next year, so what I have now is going to be it until then. Making the stuff myself is a pain and way too messy. Gotta keep Mona happy too by not destroying the the kitchen anymore.
