  1. There are two main drugs that seem to be effective at preventing outbreaks -- allopurinol and probenecid. Your doctor should do a 24-hour urine test on you (lots of comedy potential as you carry around a jug of your urine all day) to determine if your high uric acid level is due to overproduction or underexcretion. I believe that allopurinol is prescribed for the former, who make up the majority of cases, and probenecid for the latter. Lots of water will also help with the gout and with the kidney stones as well.
  2. I just received my smoking gun. The pieces seem to come apart, so hopefully I won't have any clogging problems. Also, by happy coincidence, I have an identical wooden bowl that came with another smoking device I bought way back in college. My first project is to try to recreate the smoky but raw oysters I had at minibar -- any advice is welcome.
