Finally Got My Bubba Grills 250R

Image
I finally got my Bubba Grills 250R today.  It was nice to meet +Lonnie Smith today and get some pointers on using the grill.


Wondering what all this reverse flow business is all about?  Check out stickburnermafia.com for more information.

The trailer pulls real nice.  I was doing 70 MPH on I-&% on the way home and the trailer tracked true and steady.

Master Bathroom Remodel Weekend Number 20

Image
+Sylvia Wormley and I worked on a floor plan this morning.  I am sure it will change, but here it is.

I finally got all of the walls demolished in the master bathroom.





 On one of my trips in the attic today I noticed that the vent pipe for the Jack and Jill bathroom was drooping.  Upon further inspection I found that the original contractor had the vent piping supported by a single nail.  The rooking contractors had knocked it loos when they installed a replacement bathroom fan.  I refitted the pipe, which was unglued and put a temporary wire to support the pipe until I could make a permanent repair.



Finally Getting a New Smoker

Image
In May of 2014 I wrote about the Reverse Flow Smoker.  I am happy to say that I have placed an order with Bubba Grills for a 250R on a wide trailer with a bat wing table.  I should have delivery of the smoker in a few weeks.  I have been without a smoker for a few years now since a big hickory tree smashed my old smoker on March 3, 2014.  I like smoking beef brisket.






Outdoor HDTV Yagi Antenna with Motor Rotor, WA2608

Image
I bought on Amazon the WA-2608 and installed antenna this weekend.  I read the reviews for this product and I will admit I was skeptical.  I have a friend here in Albany where I live that recommended this antenna to me.   I trusted his opinion of WA-2608 and purchased the antenna.


Here is Albany, Georgia there are three local digital over the air stations, 10.1 NBC, 10.2 ABC and 10.3 which was weather until a few weeks ago.  10.3  is now airing old westerns and action movies under the banner of Grit.  There was an old Winegard digital antenna on the chimney when I purchased the house.  It was mounted on a mast pole that also had a really old satellite dish on it.  I removed the dish and added the WA-3608.

I had to make an adapter for the transition from the dish mounting to the WA-2608 mounting.  I went to Loews and purchased some 3/4 inch EMT conduit and some 5/16 bolts and made a fitting that would work.  It an''t pretty, but it ain't going nowhere.




Now that the new ante…

Mushrooms in my backyard

I don't know what kind of mushroom this is. I'm going to do some investigation and see if I can find out.
