gettin' out in the elements and cooking on the BBQ hurts the bones Stephen? Try as I may to decipher your post,I couldn't but it sure did make me laugh! If you like I can post some pics of the BBQ so you can have a good look at the panel lines though
Half the time I cannot understand what I write either.
The builder of my house (built in 1929) was the town's only mason. In a corner of the back yard is a stone cooking grill he made with a chimney about 6 feet high. It is deteriorating with age and weather but thats OK.
Its a stone and mortar thing so there are no rivets. Very relaxing.
But I was thinking of putting in a deck and instead of nails use rivets.
I prefer to cook indoors on state of the art cooking machines and then eat outside where I can feed the mosquitos and beat off the wasps and watch the muskrats, voles, chipmunks, rabbits, and deer eating all my flowers. The racoons eat the garbage and the red fox eats the smaller animals. Sightings of bears have been reported within town limits. Should be interesting.
