    I thought something similar. I mean, the atmosphere was awesome. The old guys running it was stellar. The meat was tender, juicy and thick. But the flavour just wasn't what I was expecting. Wasn't bad at all. Just, expected something different from all the hype.

    Smoked meat is a lot like donairs. Everyone has their own take & methods. I prefer Smoke Meat Pete's, but he's a 45min drive from downtown.

    That's what we have for our city garbage pick up and we very rarely fill it up. I love it because I always have extra room when I need it for shop garbage.

    We can still do that here. We recycle but not to the extent you guys do. Whenever I visit I just let Mom put things in the bags because I never know where things go :lol: We have our own compost in our garden lot.

    My wife gets mad at me when I throw stuff in the bin from the shop that isn't in a bag

    See the guys here hand bomb the garbage bags from the garbage container. The bag thing isn't really about sorting, it's just that the guys aren't going to pick out individual pieces of trash :o

    They don't dump the bins? Huh. Trucks here have lift arms that pick them up and dump them. Hell Calgary and Edmonton have autonomous trucks now.

    Same here once a week a truck comes around lifts up the bin and dumps it in, that's why I just dump shit in that's not in a bag.

    I bought my first donair since Christmas. It was the messiest one I've had in over a decade, which put a damper on things.

    Registration fees to the Boy Scouts of America.

    Which I may regret as the forms require checking a box stating a belief in God which is coming under fire lately. I check it as I don't care but if push comes to shove, I'd rather not be associated with an organization that cares that much about whether I believe in God or not.

    More hockey gear. Specifically another pair of goalie pants. I’ve learned a valuable lesson about updating almost my entire set of equipment at once. It’s always just been replace pieces here and there as needed, but it’s weirdly like replacing parts on a car. Some things work well together, and some shit just doesn’t work right no matter how much you want it to.

    their cranberry rose is really good, but chainyard foundation is my go to and their frost bite they offer this time of year is really good too. I don’t know if you can get it in QC but if you can I highly recommend

    Not available in QC, but I'm in Coxheath this week, so I'm sampling what I can find at the NSLC. I'll keep an eye out for the frostbite!
