    Best gas grill for the money?

    This is the gas grill I use. Stock photo. I love the built in smoker box with dedicated burner and the hide away rotisserie motor. I've had mine for 7 years and never had any problems. Recently got a traeger lone star and installed a external smoker box to do cold smoking. I do love the traeger...

    Barnwood Keezer

    Very nice keezer. One thing i regretted was i used the same caster wheels and they bought the farm shortly after the build was complete. Get 3-4 kegs, co2, nitro tank it gets heavy fast. Might save you a headache later. :mug:

    Water profile after ward labs test

    This water is straight out of our subdivisions well. It is run through the chlorination station and piped to our houses. I have no softener. I wonder if that high of sodium can have adverse health affects? So this water shouldn't be used for brewing due to sodium?

    Water profile after ward labs test

    Minimal Carbonation in Kegs

    One thing i do is hook a pressure gauge to the keg post to check pressure before i walk away, just to be sure that the regulator is accurate. Might be worth checking into. Go get a low pressure gauge for accuracy. I use a 30psi gauge and sometimes a digital tire pressure gauge to check manifold...

    Northern Brewer

    I've used NB for 99% of my orders but recently found they give free shipping on orders overy 59.00. I'm not affiliated with them just a pleased customer. Don't think I've ever had an order under 60.00 so what is there to loose? NB seems to me like they have to always have the...
