    OMGoodness, they're the best. I always have a couple of jars of homemade preserved lemons hiding in my china closet. They love the dark.

    I love Meyers lemons, but can't find them in our rural groceries, so when I'm in the big city during the late fall, I watch for them to be in stock. I spent a small fortune this fall buying Meyers lemons maybe half as big as your neighbor's. I squeeze them for juice to freeze and put the peels in everclear for lemon extract. If y'all ever want to ship lemons to Iowa, keep me in mind, wouldja please?

    I can imagine that fruit is really good. My older brother in CA has shared his grapefruit, it has been better than you can find in stores.

    OMG, those Meyers!

    We think our navel orange tree and neighbors Meyer cross pollinated and created another neighbors tree. You can practically make lemonade without sugar!

    When we lived in Panama City Beach, FL we had a citrus tree what turned out to be a Hunter grapefruit. The previous owners told us it was a lime tree but never bore fruit. Two years after we bought the house I noticed about three limes growing on the tree, we let it go until late January and they turned yellow about 4 inches in diameter and were not very good. The next year we had about 250 what turned out to be grapefruits, very seedy but the liquid and pith was to die for. The next three years I would bring them to work and the bag would last about 20 minutes, everyone loved them. Just saying the fruit in the pics reminded us of our fantastic grapefruit and the story behind it, thanks.

    I freeze whole lemons and I use them to clean the grate after burning it over a fire once the coals have settled just before "Braai-ing". Then toss them onto the coals.

    Yup, same size. Of course you would expect that in your neck of the woods !!

    Totally jealous, I spent a good 15yrs trying to get a crop in DFW with zero results.. No amount of babying them in the summer or winter seemed to make a difference.

The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


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 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.
