    I’m Not Buying A Blackstone Griddle

    Or, at least I had no intention of buying one! But a quick trip into Tractor Supply to buy the pups a new dog bed changed that! They had a Black Friday sale on the 17” for $99! And they just happened to have the display model left. Oh what the heck, grab a cart and put that bad boy in there...

    Please Help

    I don't know if anyone heard of this, but there was a drive by shooting a couple nights ago very near(100 yards) our house that killed a 3 year old. Very sad times indeed! They've caught one of the cowards who did this, and hopefully will get the rest soon! There's been a Go-Fund-Me set up to...

    The Many Uses Of A TVWBB Sticker!

    We’ve had this grill stand that we use for camping for about 15 years or so. Paid $30 for it at K-Mart, that’s how old it is! The last time we camped, a stray coal got loose and burned the top. 🤬 After wondering what to do about it, I remembered the TVWB stickers Chris gave out a few months...

    Target Pre-Labor Day Mark Downs

    After "pancake Saturday" with the grandsons, we go to Target to watch the boys while mom shops. This is the time of year that they discount all of the summer stuff so they don't have to send it back or warehouse it for the next 8 months. Last week I got a Weber chimney for $8.50 and I got a...

    Beercation 2021

    After not having our annual beercation (family reunion) last year, we’re making up for list time this year! And, as I’ll be 60 in September, we’re hosting here in Charlotte! 😄 Sunday was my great niece’ 19th birthday, and instead of going to a fancy restaurant, we made her favorite meat...

    End Of School Pulled Pork

    With the end of a crazy school year, we decided to have a few friends over last weekend for a cookout. Not as big as we’ve had before, but it was nice having friends over again! I put an 8 pound butt on the night before. Pretty simple rub. Paprika, brown sugar, S&P, chili powder, mustard...

    Bacon Strips

    Pammi went to Costco a couple weeks ago with a friend of hers and got some pork belly strips. Each was 12-14” long and right about an inch thick. Pammi snagged one for ramen, and I put the rest into SR’s cute last week, flipping the bag each morning. I rinsed them last night and put them on a...

    Pizza Night!!

    We broke down and bought the gas attachment for our pizza oven. What a game changer!! Using charcoal, it took about an hour and a half to get to 800*. With this, it heats up in about a half hour! And there’s a tray to put a piece of wood for smoke flavor. The only drawback is I had to get...

    New Grill, Who Dis?

    The last few years, instead of having people over for Smoke Day, we’ve been going camping and having friends over for a cookout. We had invited several people over, so I decided to break out the Jumbo Joe that was still in the box in my shed! We got a late start Friday, so we didn’t get to the...

    Easter Camping Pizza

    This is Spring Break down here and I managed to get half the week off. Time to dewinterize the camper and head to the mountains! We decided to bring our pizza oven to see how it’d travel. As you’ll see by the pictures, I think it travelled just fine! The set up outside the camper We brought...

    I Did Something

    For the first time in just over 25 years, I'm no longer haz-mat certified. I no longer drive a commercial vehicle, and the trucks they DO have me drive from time to time aren't CDL trucks (GVRW 26,000 pounds) I will be keeping my CDL just in case and I'm pretty sure that I can get the company to...

    Another Pizza

    The pizza oven we bought came with very few instructions. There’s much more info on YouTube and a Facebook group I joined. One of the biggest problems was getting it up to temp. After many questions, I figured out that I just wasn’t letting it preheat long enough. Today, I let it preheat for...

    Not A Weber, But Cool!

    When I made my pizza oven, I had no clue what I was doing, and didn’t insulate it. It leaks and loses heat and generally is a pain to use, which is why we don’t use it any more. Pammi saw this on Facebook, and we decided to buy it for each other for Valentines Day. It’s charcoal and wood...

    Prayers For Pammi

    Hey everyone, I need thoughts and prayers for my wife, Pammi, tomorrow. She's having her ankle replaced! It started back in the late 70's when she snapped it in between high school graduation and starting college in the fall. It's bothered her for the 21 years that I've known her, so now she's...

    New Bowl For The Kettle

    First of all, huge thanks to Jeff Boudman for the new bowl! Sorry it took so long to get it installed! Last spring, I got a DM from TVWBB member Jeff asking if I could use a new bowl for a 22” kettle. Not sure how he new mine was getting burned out, but thank you sir! I forgot to get pics of...
