  1. Not sure what it is you want but I just edited the AD to show other items and the costs and location of them.
  2. I have a brand new rib rack that I have never used for my BB32. I also have a roti setup with all baskets(i have used one of them the other new) and the heavy duty motor. Selling it all. I will add more photos when I find them. This motor is the OneGrill Heavy Duty which works perfectly. If you want to use the righthand wing table it will rest on top of the motor when the motor is running, but probably not recommended although I cooked a turkey that way and never put anything heavy on top of that table during the cook. I just used the table for tools and mitts during the roast. 50% of retail buys it and you pay for the shipping. I live in Western Washington State.
  3. A Serious Gate.maybe "The Ninth Gate"?

    Yes, intentionally weak. Not positioned to be able to get bolt cutters on it but a torch would defeat it. The lock in the photo was switched to a more robust one once Icould source one. the doggy is number 6, the two previous ones are pictured here with an ex girlfriend while on a walk.
  4. While living out in the sticks for over 20 years we had our wooden gates destroyed by chainsaw, truck or whatever method a deviant could conceive. So after much though I build a gate that was almost indestructible. The concrete columns are 20" in diameter poured at the same time as the the 6ftx6ftx18" thick footings that were then surrounded with mortared in place rock. If a truck tried to push the columns over their front tires would be on the footing they were trying to remove; a non-starter... The 8" diameter cross arm was steel tube filled with concrete and 3 2oft lengths of 1/2" rebar and the counter weight end was all poured at the same time, as was the adjustable counter balance. There was a hardened steel rod (5yd truck axle) embedded in the turntable end that stuck up into the pivot point maybe 8". The pivot was 2 steel plates that had a machined race for tank turret ball bearings to make it move smoothly. Once it was all built we lifted the cross arm and placed it with a D-5 sized bulldozer since the cross arm weighed a bit more than 5,000 LB. It moved much like a very heavy vault door, if you have ever had the chance to play with one of those. It would be similar to moving a larger KK. No gate problems after that install

    Yep, paradise is indeed elusive , I currently have an easier life but much condensed going from 20 acres to 1/4 acre and a much more noisy, urban life. Only 1 GSD now, not 2, who is a great alarm system and a continual source of entertainment and companionship for my wife and me.

    They WERE, we moved because of my deteriorating health and need for better healthcare than a hangnail clinic. A few of the neighbors knew me well enough to know I was an Army combat veteran and liked me, the rest thought there was a crazy person living up there and it was best to not mess around with that person who lived there; possibly a correct assumption. Of all my immediate neighbors I was the only one to get any permits for anything so the neighbors could not complain about what I was doing on this property. This is the compound I built. It was possible to travel east 35 miles, north 90 miles and south 6 miles without hitting another road. 2 miles west was a paved road and a general store.
  7. A Serious Gate.maybe "The Ninth Gate"?

    Tyrus, there was a very steepslope, more of a drop off, on the hinge end and there was a corresponding uphill grade on the latch end. It was a logging road built around the early 1900’s to haul logs to steam powered high lead logging equipment. The home site was an old landing site for ferrying logs in the air to the railhead 2 miles downhill. A motorcycle could go around on the foot path or be dragged under the gate but the biggest deterrent from that was myself and my 2 german shepherds. The community warranted a secure awareness and that was proven many times of the 20+ years i lived there withe a neighbor (a college professor) who murdered his wife and chopped off her head and left it a mile away. Byanother neighbor whose wife chased him around the home and property blowing holes in everything with a shotgun, the other neighbors shooting at a person who was on his property trying to steal pot, which was illegal to grow at the time. Security was essential in such a seemingly bucolic setting, and when first seen it lulled you into a very tranquil complacency until it hit the fan This was the landing site.

    The steel locking pin went 2 ft into the end of the cross arm and the pin was made of 4140 steel which is pretty tough. The weak link I designed into the gate was the padlock which could have been torched off, but easily replaced. It was never messed with.

    Those pups are approved as cute and tons of energy.

  12. That is sooo incredibly sad,,, Our hearts and prayers go out to you and the rest of the family. Senseless act hardly covers it.
  13. First car, I owned 1/2, a neighbor kid and I bought it for $50 each and we took turns driving it. Second car. 3rd car, 1937 Ford. This is a photo of another one but the only difference is that mine had black lacquer fenders. 4th, 1959 Sprite. Got broadsided in a parking lot so I cut the front end off, put a frame under it and a small block Ford V8 in it. You can just barely see a holley 4 barrel sticking through the hood. Although I did not "OWN" it I certainly called it mine. I was in charge of it and drive it to hell and back. 5th, 1968 TR4a-IRS after putting 60k miles on it in 14 months I stuffed a 289 Ford V8 under the hood. 6th, 1971 3/4 ton Ford Van, converted for camping. 7th owned at the same time as the 6th. My commuter vehicle Honda 600 Sedan. 600cc air cooled was a great little car to drive until I got run off the road by a drunk. It was either a headon or take to the soft shoulder and when I steered it back onto the road at 50mph it tripped on the asphalt lip and went airborne! Pretty dramatic but no injuries for me or my Girlfriend, which was amazing. The drunk never stopped but I encountered someone who also saw him weaving and speeding on that mountain road. Mine was white. 3 days after the wreck. Amazing what duct taped and convertible rear window plastic will do in place of glass. I drove it 400 miles home in the rain with the wipers going! The we decided to fix it. We chopped the roof did the bodywork and ran it another 25K miles before selling it. 8th, 1968 VW Bus in Baja California on a fishing/surfing trip and Santo Tomas Quatras Casas. Fun machines to use when taking the VW Bus into the desert. I had a rack on the rear of the buses to take them. d d 9th, 1972 VW Van. Loved driving this but had to sell it to buy a work truck. Sold this to a sweet looking blond woman that looked very secretary type with pantsuit and all. Turned out to be Secret Service Agent!! Always wondered where is was used after I sold it... 10th, 1970 1 Ton Chevy, converted to utility. I also owned this while I had the work truck. 1966 Bug. 1937 D-2 Caterpillar I owned for several years making trails and hauling firewood. I came in handy pu;lling neighbors out of ditches I traded a 1" drive Proto ratchet wrench and a $100 for the utility bed! Drove and worked it for 20 years. 1968 Pontiac. My $135 roller to get up the dirt road comfortably. It finally biodegraded.. Had the truck at the same time. Road AFTER the phone company worked on it... More like wrecked it!! Had this at the same time since it made getting around in the mountains very easy. 11th, Pontiac Grand Am, the smile was more a shriek of horror and panic! It had the second worse brakes of any vehicle I have owned. It would have made a good target. 12th, GMC 1994 3/4 ton Suburban 4x4 with all the HD towing stuff. The worst brakes, ABS allowed me to cruise into vehicles and make a big mess twice! Unplugged the brake system and it worked fine. Finally gave up and got a Honda Element which had great brakes! Honda was a good car but very noisy interior! The current rides. 2009 and2011 MINI's.
  14. Cars you have owned that made you smile

    How many miles do you have on that little stealth rocket?
  15. Cars you have owned that made you smile

    You need a track on which to ride that thing! What does it weigh with that 146hp?
  16. Cars you have owned that made you smile

    How does the new one compare to the old one?
  17. Peeling any ideas is this normal

  18. Peeling any ideas is this normal

    I have dome peeling, cap peeling, firebox(grilling area) peeling. I have to make sure the the particles are off the grill before food gets there.
  19. I had a steep grade, a flight of stairs, used heavy equipment and got creative on the stairs with plywood sheathing on the treads and rolled it down the slope with a chainfall arresting the fall of the KK 32. It too myself and one other person. Enjoy your new 32, it's one heck of a cooker!
  20. Hummingbird and Royal Oak Lump

    They are amazing little birds and their aerial antics are second to none! A modern jet fighter could not do those maneuvers.

    I'll try taking square photos with the iPhone and see if that meets the criteria.

  25. Oak Smooked Santa Maria Tri Tip

    As a kid we did our part when camping by removing oak bark from fallen trees to be used for the BBQ/kamado my dad brought back from Japan; that was 1959....
