    congrats my friend and many happy returns to you and your Weber!


      Good stuff Richard. Hoping for many more cooks!


        With those ribs (and everything else) you put out, it's really hard to believe you've only been at it 3 years. Congrats on a really fun milestone.


          Richard Chrz Oh that is so cool, given your pics and cooks, your anniversary must be like decades, so this is like a vintage throwback right?

          Wait, three years? Three years?

          Let’s just say you are doing a great job buddy and maybe a bit better than alright.



            Con grats Richard. You are off to a great start.


              Happy Anniversary. I'm sure there were and will be many passionate cooks. Her sister lives here. She's hot. Well, cooling down now. We had a great cook tonight.


                Not sure, what is that? no AC cord, wood pellet hopper, no temp control, and looks like a lot work.
                Did she give you that thing to keep you busy and out of her hair?
                That is what my wife likes about me BBQing. "Here is the meat for you to grill tonight, and PBR. That should keep you busy for hours."--Marital Bliss.

                  Huh? You've only been at this for three years? Wow! I can't wait to see what you're doing after you have a few years of experience in this game. Looking forward to many years of great cooks from you.


                    May enjoy it……. Jury is still out on “may” 😂


                      I remember one of your first posts here. You asked about an adaptation for a BBQ and you explained you were a newbie, cooking from a wheelchair. I spent a couple of weeks looking for hinges and drawing up plans for something that I thought would work. I hit independent hardware stores from Chico to Merced, CA asking owners what they thought about plans to make something. All of the sudden you were posting some of the most beautiful cooks I have seen. I laughed at myself and thought “I better slow him down, he is already better than me!” Hahahahahaha. In the end, I wasn’t smart enough to figure out something that wasn’t commercially available. I sure am glad you are here.


                        Congrats, and happy anniversary! Your stuff is amazing and inspiring, but seriously - only three years???
                        I haven't been here long, but I always look forward to seeing what fabulous thing you've put up. And that Weber - got one just like it and I love it!! (Despite my SNS envy... :-) )

                          I can’t say it any better than Caffeine88 did - I always love your cooks and pics. Happy anniversary!

                        Happy Anniversary! I think your wife was right on the money with that idea.


                          Happy Grillaversary Richard! Glad to have you in The Pit.

                          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.
