  1. Sorry for any confusion, but brown on stove top then transfer to to the oven. My first attempt, I browned in a cast iron skillet then transferred the skillet to the oven. I found this method made the meatloaves a bit greasy for my taste. Subsequently, I've browned stove top and then placed on the broiler pan in the oven to finish. It seems like having the extra grease drip down into the catch pan makes them get a nice crust on them. If using a broiler pan you do want to be careful not to over-glaze during the first part of the cooking in the oven. You don't want to waste that stuff. It's precious. Also, you want to line the catch pan with some foil or make sure you spray it well to ease clean-up.
  2. BBWC - here's a meatloaf recipe from the America's Test Kitchen 30-minute recipe book. FWIW, this is an AWESOME book and everything I've tried has been great. Granted, most recipes take closer to an hour, but they're well worth it. Meatloaves 17 saltines, crushed fine 1/4 cup milk (or slightly more if needed) 1/3 cup fresh parsley, minced 3 tablespoons Worcestershire 1 lg egg 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 1 teaspoon onion powder 1 teaspoon garlic powder Salt/pepper to taste 1 1/2 lbs meatloaf mix 2 teaspoons vegetable oil Glaze 1/2 cup ketchup 1/4 cup light brown sugar 4 teaspoons cider vinegar 1. Heat oven to 500 2. Mix glaze ingredients 3. Mix all ingredients for meatloaves (except oil). Divide into 4 equal portions to make "mini's". Heat oil and brown loaves well on one side, 3-5 minutes. 4. Flip loaves. Cover with glaze and cook until centers of loaves reach 160 (about 15 minutes). You can either brown and cook the loaves in the same pan or transfer them to a broiler rack before placing in oven. I usually double the glaze and top them again while they rest for a few minutes prior to serving.
  3. I thought this was mildly amusing, especially for friends of Rubin and/or Stevens.
  4. Sweet jesus....that is sooooo wrong! I will now pluck my eyes out with a pen!
  5. HONK! Sorry if it's a honda, but funny either way. What a ########.
  6. For $225.00 I don't see how you can lose???? The basic info and someone to talk to is going to be worth way more than $225.00A couple hundred could save you tens of thousands in avoiding the simplest of mistakes. I am NOT advocating you giving this guy any money, this is not a scheme of any kind. That said, one of my former employees and good friends now operates in Atlanta. If you opt to contact him, his name is Doug, and tell him Anderson sent you. Buy him Lunch or a round of Golf, and he should be able to tell you more in a couple of hours than you could pick up in months of doing it on your own. Here is his webiste: Freeland Property Group He is in the business to sell things. I am not saying to buy. Maybe you will, not telling you to. However he is into Flipping and renting. If you tell him I sent you, and buy him a round of golf, just talking for a couple of hours will get you a ton of free info. He plays with a set of Adams "Tight Lies" and is deadly with them, so don't play for money. Thanks Mike - I've bookmarked Doug's site and would definitely like to drop your name to see if he'd be willing to talk to me. I'll give you an update once I've accumulated some additional info through the REIA and might actually be able to have a semi-intelligent conversation with him. As for his golf game, your wanring is duly noted
  7. Is this Lou Brown's meeting?The Atlanta / GA area has the biggest RE group in the country. Thanks Jeff - I'm not sure who Lou Brown is, but I do see from the site that this is one of the largest ones in the country. I'm going to go to the "orientation" in a few weeks to get a better feel for what's going on. It definitely seems like something that can leverage to get my bearings a bit on what I may be getting myself into.
  8. This has been discussed at length in the thread. A lot depends on your state, but IMO it's a waste of time for most people and you're better off buying an umbrella liability policy and using the insurance company's lawyers.Thanks B - I did see a few posts that have helped, but I'm still working my way thorugh this puppy.
  9. Tap, tap, tap.....this thing on I spent some time reviewing the info on my local investment association and it seems like a no brainer way to get some basic info. The annual memebership is $225 and it seems like this buys you a ton of access to info and "training". Am I being naive here or missing something? This seems like a great opportunity to see what I'm getting myself into. Is this the ol' bait and switch? Any insight appreciated. TIA. FWIW, I'm in Atlanta and am referring to this.... GA REIA
  10. Good stuff here - thanks guys I am working my way through the thread, but at 40+ pages it's gong to take awhile. I would definitely like to purchase an investment property and have been squirelling away for the last year or so where I could. I intend to do as much of the work as possible myself, but would obviously sub out when necessary. At some point I'd like to make this my FT gig. One of my biggest areas is related to the tax/liability issues and whether or not I need to run everything through an LLC or some other similarly structured legal entity. What's the most appropriate approach or what things should I be thinking through r/e this? ETA. FWIW, I'd be doing the rehab/flip approach.
