    I had frog legs for dinner and my stomach was jumpy all night.

    I would have never guessed there were tree frogs in the middle of Texas, I’m not in the desert, but dry and hot is the default weather. These live in my Live Oak trees and when it gets wet we find them on the cars or in the boat.

    Are these frogs large, like 2 or three inches? You may have Cuban Tree Frogs.

    We have them in Florida. They are invasive and have decimated the native population of the nice little green tree frogs we all played with as kids. They are also prone to getting into electrical junction boxes, etc. and wrecking havoc. They also secrete a toxin that is nasty to the skin and eyes.

    I have a 4 foot long piece of pvc pipe that I use to knock them off the walls, light fixtures, grill covers, etc. As they lay on the ground, they are dispatched with prejudice.

    My kettle, just like my PBC, is black and so are the cover. The only difference, now that I think about it, is that I store the Weber closer to the house and it is nearly always in shadow. The PBC is stored further out on the patio and is usually in the afternoon sun.

    Let's just say I now take the cover off the Kettle with a significant amount of timidity.

    I used to have this happen with an old gas grill. That was the only grill they ever inhabited, and I haven't had that problem since I got rid of it.

    If you grill up some frog legs, they won't be able to jump anymore.
    If their legs were to grow back you would have an ongoing supply for frog legs.

    Happy grilling to you.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
