        Huskee the guy in the blue shirt is a buddy of mine that is a working fool. He called when I just started mixing concrete. When I told him it was just me and the wife doing it he drove over to help after working a 12 hour day already. I have seen him pick a 230 lb beef quarter off the floor by bearhugging it and set it on a table. He is a good sized boy.. the other guy is a neighbor that drove by and saw what we were doing and stopped to help.

      Well, based on the photos you must be in the Milaca area. I get up that way for fishing now and then. I'll have to stop by.

        Heck yea. I am about a half mile of 169. Just east and north a little from unclaimed freight.

      Nice, congrats and thanks for sharing! Concrete is the single hardest physical job I have ever done, and I was a drywall hanger for years doing plenty of commercial jobs with double layer 5/8" 16' lids. Mad respect to those folks who pour concrete for a living.

            Spinn-y backs! Was trying to think of their proper name. Whirl-y tubes was all I had, knew it wasn't right.

              Looking good. Thanks for letting us go along for the journey. This is sure reminding me of days long past when I was capable of putting long hard days of physical labor to make our family’s dreams come true. My hat is off to you and your friends.

              So, in your honor I went to http://tankoftheyear.tnemec.com/#tank1708 and voted for your water tank in Milaca in the contest.🙂

                The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

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.

                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.

                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.
