Hello, we recently built out a technology team at our company. They are a phenomenal team with great work flow, rapport and collaboration however, most are junior in their career which can make it difficult for our senior lead to step away. They all receive professional dev allowances so we would like to work toward identifying possible future leads and laying out a growth plan. Do any of you have best practices, tips or resources in doing this specifically for tech talent?

Business etiquette question: when traveling with your boss is it okay to ride your boss's coattails with regard to airline status. For example, he gets free checked bags so he will check mine with his to get higher unloading priority and to save the company a few shekels. I also use the priority lines with him when we need to go to the airline counter and when we board the plane. I am American & travel mostly to latin American countries (since feelings towards queues might change on culture).

Let's talk offset smokers. I want to buy one to do a good amount of smoking all fall and winter. Fish, venison, homemade sausages, beef, poultry.

I'm not particularly interested in Traegers/pellet smokers in general. I've seen ranges from $200 to $2500, so I'm curious about results you've had. Thanks all.
