firstfrog2013: Hooray!!! I made it through a bad month and stamp budget is replenished.our beaver job is almost finished waiting for it to dry out so we can repair lawns if only the rain would stop for couple days. The tractor tears things up when ground is wet. Jul 1, 2015 13:21:36 GMT
Mick: I'll take your rain. We've been having a heat wave for the past two weeks. And there is no end in sight. Jul 2, 2015 2:08:38 GMT
Philatarium: Same here ... Jul 2, 2015 15:40:30 GMT
firstfrog2013: May have to work over the holiday weekend just to ensure we can finish this one.I believe they said more wet Monday. Jul 3, 2015 2:42:28 GMT
Philatarium: Good luck, Frog! Happy 4th anyway! Jul 3, 2015 16:32:14 GMT
Admin: Happy 4th to my southern friends, I busy up here in the great white north bbq or should say grilling hamburgers Jul 4, 2015 22:29:12 GMT
Admin: Forgot to buy buns, so off to the kitchen I had to go and make homemade burger buns, dam they turned out good, Should open a resturant :) Jul 4, 2015 22:30:07 GMT
KirkS: Hi all. I've been working on a big project this summer so I haven't been around much. A belated Happy Canada Day & 4th of July to those of us in North America. Warm regards to all -- no matter where. Jul 5, 2015 12:16:33 GMT
Jerry B: Hi Jack: This was on yesterdays "America's Test Kitchen". Pricey at $300 (Amazon) but it seems to work. https://www.americastestkitchen.com/equipment_reviews/1512-pizza-grilling-kits and http://www.kettlepizza.com/ Jul 5, 2015 15:50:27 GMT *
Admin: I made something similar to the kettlepizza but I used concrete to make the collar, I can reach 900 degrees in the oven no problem. Jul 5, 2015 19:52:47 GMT
Admin: Many people are making their own take on the kettlepizza, very easy to use some sheetmetal and cut to shape, Its a good product but at $300 I can buy a sheet of metal and a saw :) Jul 5, 2015 19:55:19 GMT
Admin: Still have change left over to buy a stone and peel. I probably have enough left over to buy all the ingredients and a box of of beer and throw a party :) Jul 5, 2015 19:56:45 GMT
Admin: To be honest Jerry I was looking at them and almost hit the buy it now last year, its a good product watched a few YouTube's and they perform very well. Jul 5, 2015 19:58:02 GMT
rod222: Hi Kirk ! welcome back.....what was your "big project" ? Jul 5, 2015 20:59:44 GMT
