I also try to make sure that the inside pits of your elbows are pointing skyward. This helps ensure your arms are close together and makes forming a chicken wing less likely. Same principle, just narrower triangle and for me, easier to maintain.
My dad had one years ago. One fall/winter he realized he must have lost it somewhere. That same winter, we had put down plastic in the old barn and made an ice rink. The next spring when the ice melted, we found the watch under the plastic. Underneath the ice, and through many below zero nights, the watch was still working.
Ill jump on the train of the Weber Smoky Mountain. Have had mine for 2 years, and it gets used at least twice a week. Ive won office cooking competitions on that thing, cooked for 115 people, and grilled some impressive steaks.
Also the money clamp Iacas gave me back in 2009 is still going strong. Worn, but still doing well.
a) I have a 10+ year old Wenger Swiss Army watch - been through at least 4 bands and ??? batteries. It is nicked up a little, but that just adds character.
b) 18.5" Weber smokey mountain charcoal smoker - homemade cooked ribs, brisket, pork shoulder, chicken, etc.
