  1. Doc might I suggest that rather then dental floss use a hog ring to crimp on the bungee or maybe cut the bungee a lil longer and get one of those adjustable bungees and swipe the end off of it so you have an adjustable one for whatever length works the best for you.

      The reason I suggested dental floss for the non-working end is because it is the non-working end, and doesn't really have any stress on it.

      The loop that is on the bungee that I make up, is actually crimped with a SS hog ring, because that is the working end.  Stupid me, the first one I made up I just used the adhesive lined thick walled heat shrink and nothing else.  It worked great about 5 trips and then I was out one day when it was real hot and that bungee loop came unlooped and came off the detector and smacked me in the face.  For a split second I thought I had been bit by a flying rattlesnake.  :ROFL: 

      " get one of those adjustable bungees and swipe the end off of it so you have an adjustable one for whatever length works the best for you. "

      I'm not real clear on what you mean by that above sentence?  The snap that comes with the Minelab bungee is adjustable.

      Also I am currently in production of something that will replace the shaft hook that Minelab makes to attach the bungee that will give you the ability to either attach the bungee, or adjust the length of the bungee on the shaft as well as using the hook, up by the "D" ring.

      Thank you for the advice, some of the best ideas are actually a collaboration with actual users who come up with, "If only you could..."

      Take care!

  3. Hey Bill,

    If it is not some closely guarded secret can you tell me how to smoke a brisket as good as you do.

    I have done three of them, and they taste like crap.  They are too smokey, they don't have that great bark on them.  I have read every darn recipe in the world, and none of them turn out like the pictures.

    I have an electric smoker.  So I am able to keep the heat well regulated.  I'm just not sure about the whole smoking thing.  I have used wood chips, but do you smoke it just at the beginning, during the entire process.  Do you cover it, don't cover it, cover it only part of the time.

    Your brisket was so darn good the last time.  It just melted in your mouth.  Maybe I just can't get the same results with an electric smoker, but I know a lot of guys that get really good results with their electric smokers.  But not me.  I think I'm cursed.

    Can't wait for this darn hot weather to settle down.

    Thanks!  Take care,

    Doc

      Thank you so much Bill.  Can't wait to give it a go.  I think along with the other hints, not using Hickory may be the ticket.
