              Not sure if I have it under control. More likely in way over my head!!

            Just jumped in to check your progress, man you are moving on very good. Sept 10 is when you poured the slab, great progress. Every thing looks top notch. I'm sure winter is creeping in up there. This has been a great story to follow. Two thumbs up.


              It's comin' together now...


                That sure looks like it's taking shape now and all of the major gadgets are in place including the TV 😊. You have done an excellent job Sir.


                  It's absolutely wonderful, following along with your project, Backroadmeats . Carry on!



                    Nice! How deep did your well have to be?

                      Well funny enough that I live in pretty much a swamp and they drilled down 160 feet and couldn't find water. So I hired a water Witcher to Mark a spot. The well drillers went down 70 feet and hit water. The funny part is when setting my septic tanks the hole has water running in so fast the tanks started to float!!

                    Looking Great Backroadmeats ! I hope to visit sometime.

                      Looking forward to it..

                    Well sometimes stuff takes longer than estimated!! I am still working on the meat locker. All the coolers and freezers are up and running. The last thing to do is finish up the meat rail in the big walk in cooler. It is close to done then moving equipment in. Click image for larger version

                  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.

                  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.

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
