    The boys availed themselves to a cold one or two, but coffee is my beverage of choice for all occasions. Unless I'm really looking to cut loose, then I'll pick up a jug of WHOLE milk, not the wimpy 2% I usually limit myself to.

    That does not sound like fun at all. I know we went through enough water to float a destroyer getting it done.

    At least you guys ate well while accomplishing your building duties. Hopefully, you had time for an adult beverage at the end of the day too.

    Same, same willxfmr but with a patio project with 42# 16x16 pavers. Yep, 6inches of gravel too. All by hand because I could not get any machinery to the site. What's with this heat up here? Now my air conditioner is on the fritz. And you are a way better man than me to work cooks into your week . . . . . way, way better. I was on the Gatorade train.

    glitchy Packers/Bears needs its own thread and that thread should be monitored for proper content at all times.

    That's my thought too. There was some work done on the place in the early to mid 70's judging by the colors. It looks to me like they wanted bigger windows, but ran out of wood for the header.

    Don’t worry, Iowans call ya that too, especially Bears fans. Dang it if my son didn’t become a Packers fan solely to spite me.

    Outstanding cooks! That would have been all on my table, but then you manage the remodeling end of things. 👍👍👍

    That is okay, I like the pictures, and I did not have to color them.

    I've had to quit wandering the aisles muttering to myself in the big box stores for the same reason.

    I still do it at work though.

    Looks like someone replaced windows in the distant past and didn't bother with the headers.

    What a great post! Thanks for posting, a very enjoyable read, taking us through the ups and downs of renovation. Been there (several times), done that. Real glad to see you managing to fit a few cooks in between too, mouth watering!!

    Our Fine Illinois Buddies took to calling us Cheeseheads to get under our skin. So... We made hats for the occasion.

Use Our Links To Help Keep Us Alive

A big part of this site is our unbiased equipment and product reviews. We love playing with toys and we have no problem calling them the way we see them. Some companies pay a finder’s fee if a reader clicks a link on AmazingRibs.com and buys a product. It has zero impact on our reviews, zero impact on the price you pay, and the sites never tell us what you bought, but it has a major impact on our ability to keep this site alive! So before you buy, please click our links. Here’s a link that takes you to a page on Amazon that has some of our favorite tools and toys: https://tinyurl.com/amazingribs

Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


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 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.

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.
