Busy Day

Wow,  The trifecta today.  HomeBrew, Home Improvement, and major BBQ.  I got the elevation added to the patio.  I added 3 and a half inches of height on the outside support.  Not the easiest thing to do and would have been so much easier with larger jacks and an extra set of hands.  It looks good though.  I’ll posts specific pictures showing the jacks in the gallery once I’m done.

Before I got to that, I brewed beer with a friend today.  5 Gallons of Black Hills Porter.   Finished up about 3pm and it’s sitting behind me as I type just starting to bubble away.  3 months down the road I’ll get to try it.   The whole time we were brewing, I had the first set of three packs of 4 sides of ribs.

The ribs are full length beef short ribs.  These things are huge. 3 ribs = 10 pounds raw.  This is the second attempt at cooking the ribs.  The first time I undercooked them and didn’t catch the temp right at the bone.  The meat was still slightly bloody.

This time I got the meat all the way cooked, but didn’t have it at temperature long enough.  Close but not quite. I put two of the four sides into the oven to finish them off, 10 hours of cooking and they turned out really well.

So a busy day, lots done

Next project

The Projects at fourth street have been going since I moved in it seems like.  There lots of things that need fixing here and so I’ve been starting on them.  So far there’s a new roof and patio cover that are almost done.  Pictures from that will be online shortly.  I’m getting into some electrical work on the detached garage and then just organizing all my stuff that’s in the garage.  Hopefully I get better before pictures on that stuff as well as the shower that needs to be replaced.

Tagless Software Changed again

I decided to swap out the software that I use to run Tagless to something simpler.  Joomla is an amazing piece of software.  I decided it was to much for what I’m currently using on Tagless though.  I switched over to wordpress since it is much more basic.
