      Cheers brother! Your friendly neighborhood respiratory therapist encourages you to kick that other nasty habit though.

          Mr. Bones it took the guys about an hour to put all the windows and doors in . I tried to bribe them to stay with donuts but once the donuts were gone and no soffit was there they left.. I have done construction long enough to know that most guys will hang around as long as there is coffee and donuts.. damn next time I need to get a bigger box of donuts!!

          This is great! I can't wait to come up and check it out! (And buy some high quality meats too!) You let me know when you are opening, and I will make the drive up from the Cities, my friend! This is awesome.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

            The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

            Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


            Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

            GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


            GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

            Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

            Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
            Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.
