    My wife really appreciated the time I rendered about 10 pounds of bear fat on our kitchen stove said it wasn’t to messy but to her it did not smell good. I couldn’t tell after first couple pounds in a giant cast iron skillet I went nose blind.

    I always figure it’s easier to beg forgiveness than ask permission.
    Works for me.

    That train of thought has been working for me for years. This time I might not have to worry about either approach. I hope!

    Sounds too good to be true. You get a little wired with all that Mountain Dew in the background?

    Lmao. That’s awesome. My wife tried to tell me something similar when we first got married, my response was to the effect of “your just gunna hafta get glad in the same pants you got mad in”. She stayed mad for the first few years. We’ve been married over 19 years now and she doesn’t even bat an eyelash now. Key is to get them trained up from the get go.

    No I don't do the Dew, all that soda is for a soda machine that I take care of at my old shop. Just one more way I can make a few extra bucks to keep me in bullets and keep me hunting.

    I guess I have to talk to the boy a little bit more, maybe tell him not to make the same mistakes that I made.

    Head down and drive forward as long as no one on here decides to use the pics against you.

    This is awesome, I love this thread.
    The next time I decide to use the kitchen table for a butcher block, I can just remind her that at least I'm not boiling heads in the kitchen.
    Truth...she probably wouldn't have a problem with me boiling a head in the kitchen, as long as it was her deer.

    Keep your mind on the reloading in case you double charge

    after i had a fire on the cooktop, i have been banned from making black powder lube in the house.
    evolution has created a lube that works better than you can buy, and works in a broad temperature range, but it is in the shed where the magic spells are woven.

    On that note it is good that I am single.

    I have cooked up a few thing on the stove top that it took a couple of weeks to get the smell out of the house. Since then I have learned to try to do these type of things outside on my propane camp stove were the neighbors can wonder what kind of repellent I am brewing up.

    However every now and then I will still get the old brew pot out and head to the kitchen to cook something up that shouldn't be cooked inside. And then for the next couple of weeks I pay for it with the windows open and the fans a blowing.

    I have tried making my own patch lube with varying results and in the end have chosen Trappers pure mink oil from Track of the Wolf.
    It works great doesn’t freeze cleans up easy and I get 15-20 shots between cleaning the bore and it works great to prevent rust on the rifle. Shawn
