    Went inside to eat lunch at work today, it was around 53 degrees outside. Came outside after lunch, it's up near 78 degrees!! Wacky stuff, to say the least!

    Haven't seen a temperature swing like that in quite some time around here!

    Here's to hoping it stays warmer. I want to be done burning for the season.....

    You'll be itching to burn by about September.

    Tuesday AM it was in the low 40's...turned the heat on in the truck on the way to work. On the way home it was in the mid 80's...windows down and considering some A/C.

    Yeah, I know......but for now, I need a break! With the lawn mowing and house projects, not to mention little league games and other activities....I need a break from the stove!

    It was in the low 40's here last night. We built a fire in the NZ3000 for the overnight. Let it go out, and I'm glad I did. Its 80 outside, and 67 inside.....which I consider to be just about perfect!

    I'm assuming you guys got the same heavy frost we did yesterday morning, Scotty? Had to do a double-take when I woke up, as it almost looked like snow! I had mowed the lawn Monday night.

    Yes, indeed we did, Joful. The leaves on our maple trees are still floppy and droopy looking, I'm hoping they recover! I actually had a very heavy frost on my car's windshield, that's the first time I have EVER had to scrape my windshield in May......

    You need to fire up the outdoor fire pit while you mow the lawn, you gotta do something with all that wood this summer.....

    When the weather's right, we're out there every other weekend, my friend......
    We do steaks, fish, shrimp, scallops, corn, wings, chicken breasts, burgers, brats, cheddarwursts, keilbosi........you name it, we cook it on there.

    I have stacks of applewood, some hickory, grapevine, pear, and cherry that I use to make it taste really good!!

    If you haven't noticed, there is a fair pile of folks on this site that go all out. Folks with dedicated pizza ovens, to awesome firepits, smokers, etc. We LOVE our food.==c

    That's a lot of different critters. I'm pretty much to the point where I cook the entire meal on the grill/pit a couple nights a week. Some sort of meat, a couple veggies, taters, toast up some garlic bread, etc. Makes the wife happy because there are 0 dishes (other than plates and such) and she doesn't have to cook.

    On the menu for tonight - grilled pork shoulder steak with homemade asian bbq sauce, grilled marinated okra pods (out of the freezer from last year's garden), a potato boat (foil filled with taters, onions, garlic, peppers, cheese, etc), and some garlic toast.

    Exactly what I'm planning to bring.
    I Love Yuengling lager, the one beer I'd choose if I had to choose just one for the rest of my life.

    is this face because you question the rum and rootbeer combo, or is it the look of enthusiasm?
    rum+rootbeer=delicious....and not bacardi...a real manly rum, like El Capitan, or Mount Gay.

    Far from a look of enthusiasm. ;lol

    I love a double shot of Captain with a slug of cheap root beer.......or you can substitue Dr. Pepper for the root beer.
    Say what you will, but when you have a wheat allergy, you have to improvise a bit. I LOVE Yuengling lager, but it doesn't particularly love me!!
