    Lookin gooood!


      My dad made me do that by myself for a pole barn when I was 16. It took three months. I'm still sore from shoveling sand.

      It's looking great! I'm looking forward to the progress blog you've got started.


        Yes - please keep the pics coming.


          Lookin mightyfine, there, Brother~

          Many Thanks, again, fer takin us all along on this ride,,,


            Backroadmeats I will never forget following your venture. Your first post was on my 67th-Bday. I am just fascinated by what it takes to build a modern butcher shop. I fully applaud what you are doing. How big of septic tank and drain field did you have to put in for your business.

            Again continued success and hope all goes well for the opening.

              I had to put in two holding tanks for right now.. it has been so we up here everyone is behind so far a have to wait for next year to get the mound system installed. I actually had to put plastic septic tanks in because it was to wet to get a truck in there to set concrete ones..thanks for the encouragement.. I am getting closer!!

            Nice. Looks like you are well on your way to success!!!

Tin is on 60 percent of ceiling in back.. FRP board on 50 percent of front. Garage doors and openers went in today.. Click image for larger version

                      They forgot to bring a divining rod....

                    For my late Mother-in-law a few years back, they had to go to 200 ft & that was in Frontenac, near the big river.

Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.

                    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.
