            Attjack - yes. Thank you VERY much for your concern. I just posted photos of the fire from where I live in another thread. I really appreciate the concern and feel very bad for your sister.

              Man that's tough to comprehend. I have a supervisor who just moved from that land of dryness and fires. His son still runs a logging company out there.

                    Just got word it's looking worse. Calfire says they think it will hit their property. There are 85 acres I hope the animals make it and their structures aren't lost.

                        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                        the good one grill
                        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.

                        Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
