    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.

                    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’.

                    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.

                    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.
