Finally got around to it

Cut the handles off my kettle to install it in the outdoor kitchen. Had a buddy of mine make up a ring to hold it in place. Didn't even have to pay him with "Q"! Siliconed it down and gave it a trial run this past weekend with a few burgers. I have to see how hot it gets before I install the concrete countertop, doors and stucco. I still have to but a coat of silicone around the ring so it can expand when it gets hot without cracking the concrete. One or two more trial runs and I'm ready to form and pour!








I had to use up the last of the italian bread so I didn't get any rolls. Larry, just for you, I didn't use my burger press! Pigs, just for you I misspelled a word in here, see if you can find it!

I'm going to put vents in the back wall. Then when I cook, I'll open the doors for more air.
