    Yup, and no need for a yeti cooler either. Nice pic, maybe in 4 months. 🕶

      Actually. You need the Yeti cooler to keep your beverage from freezing 🥶

      This is our first dry day in a week! So nice. We don’t get snow so it is a deficit in our seasons. It does not bother me now but as a kids we always hope that this year we would get snow! It was rare. Cheers!

        That's funny.. my kids are hoping it warms up so they can go play on the big piles of snow we have all over the yard.. I guarantee my kids would love to have a bonfire and cook some smores right now.. guess the wood stove will have to work for a few more monthes..

            Enjoy that nice weather! It looks relaxing.

            I woke up early tonight, 3pm (my 3am) and snowblowed the drive so I could make it in to work tonight. When I finished I went back through it again because it was snowing so hard. It hasn't stopped since, will have to do it again tomorrow. Kind of a good thing the ~14" we had a week ago all melted when it warmed up to 48 deg and rained last Mon, otherwise we'd have 4' right now.

              Nice! I've been meaning to sink our firepit into the ground like that. But I have a lot of other stuff to do, to the point that I'm thinking about just hiring a landscape crew to come out and do it all at once, instead of me taking about 12 weekends in a row to get it done.

                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.

                The Undisputed Champion!

                thermapen
                The Thermoworks Thermapen MK4 is considered by the pros, and our team, to be the single best instant read thermometer. The MK4 includes features that are common on high-end instruments: automatic backlight and rotating display. Don't accept cheap substitutes.

                Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                Grilla pellet smoker
                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.
