    I hate MAKing decisions, but I ordered a new grill AND bought a new house

    I'm excited...
    rickgregory really got me thinking and I decided to go all in and I just pulled the trigger on a new MAK 2 Star and had an offer accepted on a new house at the same time. I really hope I can take possession of my new home before the grill gets here so I don't have to move that beast of a grill.

    Pics of the new house: https://www.amazon.com/Pets-Imperial...pplies&sr=1-23

    A little detail on how I came to this decision:

      So, that's where you will be receiving your mail for a while huh? It's insulated and I hope it is wind proof as well.

        Was thinking the exact same thing. At least it can be warm inside.

        Excellent! Just a note that you need help assembling that grill, and the new house.

        PS. Where’s the car port?

          Smaller house so you can have more patio space for cookers??

            My dream was always a house with a garage 3 times the size of it...figured if setup right, there'd be a lot of patio around the garage so I could wheel cookers in and out.

              Dang it! Why didn't I think of that, it probably would have saved me a couple extra lashings for spending even more.

                Man, I was enjoying all the drama surrounding what you were going to buy. Now we have to wait for this to arrive.

                Good job! Congratulations!

                    With the two of us startin it, we could definitely lay down the association rule that you have to be 'certified' to live in our hood.

                  Good man. You showed her who's boss. And now that you're both clear she is, you can settle into that nice new house.

                    Make sure you use the pallet the MAK comes on to make a door for that house

                        Boone’s Farm Strawberry Hill, Mad Dog and Thunderbird are the only wines that will be gracing my wine rack. The low fat Boone’s Farm is for Mom. But I can’t drink tonight. Gotta get up early tomorrow. Gonna blow some popcorn texture over the ceiling insulation. Spruce the place up a bit. This weekend I’m getting a couple of new bean bag chairs and a lava lamp. Then I’m gonna pick out some new shag carpet. Hopefully they’ll have the lime green I like so well.

                        Panhead John, I don't think a bunch of old industrial size toilet paper roll cores would do a good job, but you make them look almost snazzy there!

                    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.

                    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!

                    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.

                    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.

                    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’.
