Howdy

Howdy Friends.

I know it's been a while. I'm guilty. Been so busy. Cooked in the Royal and survived ball cancer. (let the jokes begin) "Uniballer" "Mono Ball Mike" "lefty" "Half Sack" etc... By now I've gotten em all. Feel free to add your favorite. I knew I had the cancer on the trip to the Royal so my team mates called it righty's farewell tour. Anyway picked up a new Trailer for comps and been doing a ton of camping too. (V9 we got to get out on a trip soon) Just wanted to drop in and say hi. I should be around a bit more now that things have slowed down a bit. Mike.

Hey Tri,
One ball is better than no balls. I have some friends with no balls . Nice trailer, you ever hit your head going out the back door?

Nice looking rig. Sorry about the loss of one of the twins. Sure they give you a nice big old cat eye marble to take its place. I had kin who used one of them for a glass eye one time. They versatile.

I was thinken about one of em steel marbles so I could do tricks with a magnet. I'm married, and done with kids. I quit making adult films last fall so don't care too much what they look like anymore.

Home depot actually. It's nicer than I thought. I had a 16 gauge steel circle cut 22 in dia. to put in the bottom so I don't burn out the bottom. The instructions recommends sand in the bottom. It lives in the trailer when not in use. Ive been doing quite a bit of dutch oven cooking and I want to fabricate grate to hang from my tripod I can roast corn on the pit grate and cook a roast, chicken or tri tip on the tripod grate above it hanging from the tripod. (see link) I like the pit too cause at alot of dry camp spots there isn't a pit or the pit is in a weird area behind my trailer etc. Also you have your grill/cook set up and when your done you got your fire pit all in one. The best is getting up at dawn with a hot cup of Jo and sitten by the fire while it burns down enough to start breakfast. Just don't get better than that.

Got an old cook chum who used a gizmo like that to preburn his fire wood along with a mix of charcoal to feed his offset pit. He did that religiously for years..then one time he run out of time and just burned the wood raw. Wouldnt ya know..1st brisket. He started just huddling around it with a cup o Jo after that.
