Well, you are all set for some up to date cooking -

We got our daughter an air fryer for Christmas. I wouldn't trust it to fry chicken - without lots of lard -

We have a instant pot, that I've used upon occasion. I don't much like it because it cooks too quick and doesn't give me enough time for a nap -

We use ours for chicken all the time. An air fryer is really just a smart marketing name for "small convection oven", so it bakes chicken fine. since it has an open basket you can get the bottom part crispy as well. We primarily use it for breaded chicken fingers if we cook chicken but I have done whole pieces.

It's also good for potato and sweet potato fries. if you spritz them with oil they turn out pretty well.

if we need larger batches, our Samsung convection oven works just as well though.

fingers crossed. :p
time to meet the neighbors! i screwed up the first week at my house, and sent some packages to the neighbor next door that i had already met. i spent a ton of time talking to the sellers, and usps to correct the address label to no avail. it took an embarrassing talk with the neighbor to striaghten it out.

we've done a bunch of them.

they're less than ideal-- ideal being fixture replacement with an led variant. but there's many oddball fixture installations that it's easier to just yank the ballast and rewire than go through the effort of attempting to re-install a newer/better fixture that doesn't fit the same way. most of the times we use them is in industrial spaces where the fixtures are connected with conduit, and the only way to replace the fixture would be to completely re-do the entire installation from scratch-- rewiring the bulbs for led is a fraction of the labor time.

if you have a t8 fixture, you'll generally need to replace the tombstones(bulb-holders), as t8 tombstones are shunted(shorted), and can't provide hot and neutral on the pins.

this video is mostly how we do it, but we don't remove the fixture. if the fixture can be that easily removed, replace it:


if you've got a t12 fixture, as long as the tombstones are in good shape yet and aren't getting brittle, they are already non-shunted tombstones, so you only need some orange wire nuts to re-wire them the way the above video shows.

this video accurately shows t12 conversion, but i don't like that they connected all of the unneeded wires together on the other side(i cap every individual wire), and they also don't do a good job showing how to identify which side of the tombstone is which(important!) like the first video showed. but they do show installation of the UL-required sticker that comes with the bulbs that is required to be installed onto the fixture to warn future people that sparks will happen with normal florescent bulbs! :


and a final note-- in both videos, they show the conversion of a 2' x 4' drop ceiling lay-in fixture. lay-in fixtures are the least cost-effective to convert in this method. we've always replaced the lay-in's with flat panel lay-in fixtures, as the cost of the fixture combined with the labor of removing and re-installing is less than that of the cost of the bulbs and the conversion process. not to mention, most fixtures are yellowing or falling apart by the time we do the conversion from being installed for 10+ years, so it also alleviates issues with parts breaking, and ensures a consistent final product instead of trying to explain to the customer that we replaced the guts but not the crap that contains the guts...

That's nice, but I'm talken FRIED chicken here, an inch of lard in a cast iron skillet, chicken well seasoned (lots of salt) and covered with flour.

Yep, back on the farm we had the iron skillet from my grandmother, we rendered the lard from butchering our hogs, we raised our own chickens, fed from the corn and wheat we grew on the farm and we made our own butter.

Now, I ask you, eating like that, how in the hell did my grandfather live to be 89 years old, my father lived to be 94 years old and I will be 77 next month?

i genuinely believe some of it is the artificial stuffs. but i'm not willing to pay more for it, which still keps me away from the whole GMO Free Barn thingies that everyone thinks they can charge more for.

Because, work helped to balance the food intake... Now we don't work so hard but maintain a high calorie intake.. something has to give... Clothes get bigger and lives get shorter.. however, there are exceptions to the rule, you work hard bringing up your young family so chicken cooked in lard is great for your capacity..

Thanks @soundman98, sounds like replacing the entire fixtures would be easiest in my case. There are only 3 and are 30 years old.

Yep, I reckon so. After a large meal of lard-fried chicken and mashed potatoes with lots of butter, we would go back out to the hay fields. In a few hours, I figure we burnt off most of the calories and cholesterol.

Super sweet write up about Indonesia's Black Auto Battle. Was pretty meh until I saw the Beetle and the lingerie pattern engraved turbo! Not my flavor but, some wicked attention to details.

I probably should read it again too. It's probably been 20 years, and I bet I'll understand completely different things now.
