    Mesquite for grilling and charcoal for BBQ. Mesquite burns too hot for BBQ. I always buy the 40lbs. bags.

    I personally prefer propane over either mesquite or charcoal. I don't do BBQ, so I've never run into a problem with something being too hot for that. My grill is just your standard 4-burner propane grill, but if I'm using something that isn't a gas and the grill isn't mine, it's got to be mesquite.

    Propane for convenience for sure, just not for me. Propane is convenient for BBQ as well, for the fact of keeping a consistent temp, though you lose a tremendous amount of flavor not using coals/wood chips. If I choose to grill, I like the act of preparing a fire (while drinking a beer or two) and as you stated, the results are superior. I do own a large propane wok setup:

    This thing gets blazing hot, thus perfect for wok cooking.

    Went to costco and purchased a Dell with an i3 processor, 12GB of RAM in black. When I got home I realized they gave me the i7 processor, 12GB of RAM in silver. I guess I can sacrifice the color for the free CPU upgrade.

    Not.

    Apple’s most expensive MacBook Pro now costs $6,700.

    Have you been sleeping well these days or has your conscience gotten the best of you? :D

    You're right about me not getting any sleep lately, but its more work than it is feeling guilty about someone else's mistake.

    It's sad but true, that it all comes back to you, when you need to RMA a laptop you didn't pay for... ;)

    Did Costco put the correct serial number on your receipt? Did they ring up the right model and hand you the wrong box? It's pretty difficult to ring up the right model, enter the right serial number from the wrong model, and get charged the wrong amount for a better model.

    Probably best to return it and come clean, after you get enough sleep...:D

    You know, sometimes I really wish I was part of some sort of tech group or message board based loosely around notebooks, so that if I ever do have any issues then I could just fix it myself.

    Yeah, well now you have no choice, with no receipt for RMA for your laptop, nice one. ;)

    It's still not to late too fix it. You could still take it back to Costco, and come clean. Costco might even issue you a proper receipt that will allow you to get support from the laptop OEM, without charging you more $. After all you were honest enough to come back, driving all that way both ways, just to make it right.

    It'll help you sleep better too. :D
