    RonB I think she has an ulterior motive, and thinks I will move all of my brewing equipment to the shed, and out of the garage. Considering I do most brewing in the evening, I don't think I care to try and do that in a small shed with no power or running water! And I can't dump boiling water in the backyard the way I can dump it down the driveway...

    I like the way your wife thinks.

    Well, part one of this project involved tearing down a shed, which was actually built as a playhouse for my kids about 25 years ago, by my dad. I then turned it into a shed as they got older. I tell you what - to have a rotten roof and some rotted out walls, the floor is solid as a rock and in pristine condition - he used pressure treated 4x4's and treated plywood, then painted that plywood to protect it...

    That complicates things as now I am tempted to build a replacement shed on that foundation, versus just getting an outdoor storage cabinet, which could mean outdoor kitchen stuff gets pushed back. My wife said I ought to build a new one and turn it into a tap-room for the pool, and move my kegerator out there, haha.

    All this work is fine & dandy, just as long as the goal is as smokin fool has now identified, the NEW John Deere.

    Thanks guys - not paying someone to move this. If it is too hard, it gets chopped down!

    It only took a couple of years to grow to its current size? Cut it down and buy a replacement. Or better yet call a tree company and get them to give you a quote for them to move it. That piece of paper may carry more weight in the argument than the tree.

    I was thinking more about your situation, unless you have a sentimental attachment, I’d cut it down and get a different plant. They aren’t exactly local to you, but they have great stock, I use to buy from them in my old job.

    I would be looking to hire some who has or rent a Tree Spade... or stump grinder

    You’ll definitely need help because that size plant needs a substantial root ball to move. At nurseries they typically use spades mounted to a skid steer to plop those things out of the ground. Good luck!

    I agree! I would end up paying doctors and physical therapists more than having a new tree put in!

    I agree. I planted two new trees a few years ago. They were amazingly heavy. They had about 3 foot root balls. It took 4 of us to slide them off the trailer and into the hole. If we had needed to get them back out of the hole we would have needed a backhoe or such to lift them. These were just lacey barked elms with 4 inch trunks, nothing huge at all. By the time we had them standing straight up and the holes filled in it had kicked all 4 of us. My advice is, have it done.

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.

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.

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’.
