    Light flurries started about an hour ago and it’s already starting to stick to the road. Forecast is for 1-3”...I’m sure school for tomorrow will be cancelled any minute now! Most likely all the grocery stores are already sold out of bread and milk!

        I guess it doesn't take much for the Wetside! Because I have a tractor I was roped into ploughing for the Orient School District in Stevens County. My contract called for me to plough if there was 2" on the ground and I was to have it done before the school busses ran. They rarely cancelled, sometimes ran two hours late to give the county a chance to get roads cleared.

      I passed through Republic, WA today. Here's a couple of pics:

      The 'Fire Hall' is Republic Brewing Co. The blob of snow you see in front is from Republic's 'Winterfest' held the third weekend in January. They put boxes made from plywood on the sidewalks and fill them with snow from the road a few weeks prior to the festival, then artists make carvings out of them. Snow was so sleight it looks like most were untouched. Anyway, to put this in perspective to those not familiar with Washington, ecowper 's house is how Republic should look on any given winter day. Republic today is how his house should look after a major snowstorm.

        For Western Washington that is some crazy snow. I am over in Spokane and it has been snowing and in the mid teens all day. Getting ready to head out for another round of shoveling. Definitely buying a snow blower before next winter. I had one before I moved to Florida for 5 years and was hoping I could make it through this winter without one.

      If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

      slow n sear
      The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

      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

      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. 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!

      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
      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.

      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

      PK 360 grill
      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.

      Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

      kareubequ bbq 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.

      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

      masterbuilt gas 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'.

      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      NK-22-Ck Grill
      Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
