  1. Probably be cloudy anyway, I'd take an uber to the light rail and take on a Twins game, place should be rockin!!
  2. Lots of memories of that stretch. Were you around in the Billy goat bridge days?
  3. I get chased from time to time That old grill could use some new grates, I know they quit making it years ago but I should look to see if any are available. The top grate has been a great tool.. That's the thing about charcoal grills, the last along time!!
  4. Usually always do a dry brine or wet on salmon but this time around it was a quick cook and chow. Thumbing through the seasonings I went with a brown sugar bourbon ( grill mates) and onion salt. Salmon went on first with some serious smoke on a small amount of coals for a short period of time until the shrimp and asparagus was ready, then more coals had to be added to crank up the heat. I thought for sure it would be dry without being brined but I was way off as usual!!
  5. Now that's a bloody Mary big d!! Cant say I've had one with breakfast in it..
  6. My madness method is definitely skipping the last, used to like charing them up afterwards but that's how they get dry. I dont cut them in half either wether they are on the big charcoal unit or the pellet smoker. I try to keep the temp low ( 190 -200) and smoke away. Around an hour if they dont have a deep mahogany or starting to split I'll leave a little longer. But, after they are sauced (optional) and foiled I crank the temp to 300 to break them down. Usually after the first hour or so of foil a fork will go in easy at the center, if not give it 30 min but dont unwrap until your ready to eat. You can call this the 1 1/2 -2 method. Been doing it this way for years.
  7. I've had this old hand auger laying around for more than 30 years, funny the blades aren't all that bad. Chopped the handle off, found up a grade 8 bolt and had the shop that does most of our work machine it down to fit my 3/8 drive. I havnt tried it yet just hoping the drill doesn't melt the first time out.
  8. That is cool, any other critters looking to get a chunk?
  9. That's great advice, both of you guys. I'm kind of a newbie when it comes to it yet. Heres a pic that's coming down ( 5yrs old) not much sun anymore but sure was a nice working height. It's made of cedar so I spose I could piece out the 2 ×4's for a border. No shortage of bunnies here too but its them friggin squirrels and chipmunks that get in my pots and the raised bed, as long as they cant climb fencing I should be good. Dont own a tiller yet but I'll be looking. So do you guys just fertilize once in the spring or do you give the plants a little help during the growing season?? Really appreciate your input..
  10. A guy at work said the same thing about round up, but I wasnt sure. What about all the freshly killed grass just blend it in with the raised bed dirt and fertilizer with the tiller? Thinking on running some kind of treated edging around it , we have some pretty stiff metal products at work I can zip tie hardware cloth or something to it. Maybe a homemade gate to get in and out...good thing one has time yet before the spring.
  11. Ouch, it was a while back since I did them but after looking at the pics the pcs didn't get much heat until they were in the pans. If I remember right the one end of the belly had alot more fat than the other so I trimmed it some. But the break down process in the pans pretty much took care of rest.
  12. Really leaning on doing the same thing, already have all the batteries might as well get the 1/2 drill to boot. The old model 30 still runs great but it would be nice to have another lighter option for local lakes.
  13. I'm taking all the dirt out of the raised beds for the new garden, should one kill the grass, dig it out or just cut it real short then blend in the rest?
  14. Looking forward to it, going from waist high raised bed and a patio full of pots to cutting in a big o regular in ground garden. It was nice weeding the raised bed but it doesn't get the sun it once did. So if you guys got any pointers I'm all ears.
