This weekend I'm getting propane (3 tanks for my gas hog Weber), a haircut, oil change for the truck, and cleaning 4 guns before heading to the range. Not in any particular order...
Going to test my extractor on the Ultra and look the ejector over real good too while changing out the recoil spring. All this while trying to keep the wife happy :D

What about you??

I have no particular plans to the weekend. Will probably go to the LGS today. I don't enjoy large weekend crowds.

I need to check the schedule but will probably have some lacrosse games to attend.

There's a rumor the sky's will be sunny and warm. There's cold beer in the 'beer fridge' on stand by to help moderate any unusual warmth. I may need to spend some extra time on the back deck watching wildlife.

Keep in mind I for one always enjoy hearing about a visit to the LGS

I converted my Weber over to natural gas about 8 years ago and haven't looked back. I use it all year around, I've got a 10' hose on it so I can move it around if I need.

I love, I mean I really L O V E, having my grill on natural gas. That's why I'm wrestling with the whole charcoal/egg type issue so much.

But, dang, grills have gone up. Pretty much any run-of-the-mill grill is going for $800 or more (unless you buy a $300 rust trap.) Wish I could get a stainless, two-burner, natural gas grill at a reasonable price and still afford a small egg for smoking meats on the weekends.

I actually have a NG fitting coming out of the ground about 4 ft. from my grill. A few years ago I gave it the old college try of removing the cap..wouldn't budge. Then, I think I went to the beer fridge and that was the end of it. Maybe I'll add it to my to-do list.

Don't forget you'll have to change the jets on your grill to accommodate the NG vs propane. NG is lower pressure so the jets are bigger.

My 3 burner Weber is 19 years old, I've rebuilt it twice and had to weld up some rust holes in the frame two years ago. The last time I rebuilt it I replaced everything inside that I could with stainless parts. I'm lucky Weber has a factory about 25 miles from here and every year they shut down the factory and have a massive sale in the place. It's usually a 2 day event that thousands of people will show up for.

Weber makes a kit you can buy that will contain everything you need for the conversion. From the jets to the hose with a quick disconnect fitting on it.

You're speaking my language. I have my Weber 4 burner gas hog, 3ft Blackstone griddle and vertical smoker all lined up in series...don't have a pic of the Weber.

Yeah I called them before I tried removing the NG cap...lost interest at the time.

That is so cool. My father (who passed many years ago) gave me a Genesis 2000 3 burner when I turned 30. I have rebuilt it as well and still have it/use it. Starts up on the first click always. It is 23 years old.

I have a 30" Masterbuilt electric smoker that I've attached to a cart to make it easy to wheel out. Next to the smoker is my cold smoke burner for smoking stuff like cheese. The box under it holds my different wood chips.

Nice set up. I used to use the 3-2-1 method when I first started smoking but down to 3-1-1 @220 deg.
I know a lot of competition smokers who don't use foil at all in the smoker, but then again I'm not up all night nor desire to do that. Besides, my kids give me all the kudu's I need.

Now, tell me about the car please......:)

I was 24 years old when I decided I wanted a hot rod, not having any money I started hanging out at the local auto grave yard. I worked weekends for the owner and he paid me in parts and taught me how to weld. The frame is scratch built, the body is a 23 Model T bucket and a shortened pickup bed. I originally built it with an old 265 c.i. Chevy truck V-8 with a 2 brl carb. Over the years I worked my way up to a 283 chevy, a 350 chevy and now it has a 383 c.i. chevy V-8 (that's stroked 350). Right after I built the engine I had it dyno, it puts out a streetable 452 HP, the car weights 1800 lbs with a full 10 gal gas tank and me in it. Today the car is 47 years old, if I knew I'd still be driving it in my 70's I would have put a door in it.

You're giving his car to his son? Do you know something we don't?

My weekend will start with my Uncle Bud{Select}getting here and then my friend Johnnie{Walker}may show up later to help me with my targets for the range on Saturday.After the range,I will get my charcoal loving Weber kettle out to grill that Grey Goose that I have been saving.Since most "true grill masters"use the black/grey bricks to cook,I can expect an afternoon of steaks just smoking their little fat asses away....:cool:
