If anything is really big we are leaving. I'm about 20 miles or so from the coast so storm surge isn't really an issue.
sounds like a plan!

How's the boss liking retirement?

How's the new family?
I bet that's a huge adjustment. PCSing is bad enough, couple that with retirement and I'm sure that fact that you're in training doesn't help.

You should cook her a nice steak dinner.......

Family is doing great, the dog is a little depressed (just got his nuts chopped) so he's sulking a bit......

I'm going to hook her up tonight.

So, will you finish out there at Barksdale?

Not to threadjack but I did pull the trigger on a Big Green Egg. I debated gas vs charcoal, but the ease of gas just didn't outweigh charcoal flavor for us. As it turns out, the Egg is a great compromise. The thing is easy to start with just one paraffin block and is ready to cook in 10 minutes - no chimneys, no electric starters necessary. The ash is neglible, so cleanup is just not big deal. It grills and bakes (pizzas are big around here, and one of my biggest scores has been meatloaf with some vidalia onions chopped in and a handful of mesquite chips on the coals). One of the best aspects is that there are no hot spots - every place on the grill cooks the same. I built the cart out of cedar - the pneumatic tires give it all-terrain capability .

We've been dedicated charcoal grillers since I was a kid - Omaha steaks way before there WAS an Omaha Steaks.... I felt like going with gas would have been turning my back on my heritage. This type of grill has been an eye-opener for me, and a real advancement in the art IMHO.

That looks great Mac! I can't wait to use ours.

Ric, you can buy the cart or just the plans. My wife purchased the cart for ours.
