Thats nice. Amazing how a demonstration can clear up my confusion! What do you use to raise it? Wire or cable or?

I got a bunch of 1/8" stainless cable 4-6 feet long if you need some for any reason. Quality stuff meant for kayak rudder controls.

If you guys want really cool grills, a relative and great guy owns this place - https://fire-boulder.com/ - buy some boulder grills from him so he can buy more cool guns to bring over to my place and let me shoot them.... :mrgreen:

Also landscaping stone and all sorts of stuff.

That worked great, Lenn. Nice way to break in your grill.
Say, what's that structure to the left in the background? I had a dream about a little steam engine on a garden railroad last night, and that reminded me of it.

Nice grill Lenn. Too bad you don't have a piece of dead cow to go on it. It's almost 9:00 AM here and I'm heading out to get another new knee. I too remember the RR track fondly. That's a really nice 45 you posted. I just have one 1911 left. All others grew legs.

Pray for me fellers.

Excellent idea and nice work!

Thanks, Pitchy, I'd really enjoy spending more time on this forum, and maybe I can soon. I've just been so busy that I feel like someone pitched me into a clothes washer and put it on the 'spin cycle', high speed.
