    from what I can see... I'd say Florida is a boy... a little droopy but a boy.

    Compared to California, we're fully erect and capable.

    I’ve been following it closely. All the people I know near Apalachicola Bay evacuated, and that says something because one of them is a 2nd or 3rd generation shrimp fisherman and his wife really had to push him to leave, grumbling as he did. Looking at Highway 98 from Eastpoint to Carrabelle I think he’ll be glad he left.

    Very little known about where we stay because power is out & the bridge will be closed for awhile. What I’ve seen from earlier looks bad, though possibly not near-totaled like Mexico Beach. I understand they predict the bridge into Carrabelle is gonna wash out. That’s not a little bridge.

    It surprised me by retaining Cat 4 winds well inland. Just incredible.

    Hope we can go back next year because winter would be long without it, but more concerned about the locals & property owners. It is a beautiful place. IMG_5078.JPG

    The wife and I adopted Pensacola, Apalachicola hunk of the world as our getaway destination because it's easy for us to get to and not expensive to stay and eat. I'm sick for these folks down there and hope they can get their lives back soon...

    :lol: I have the exact same rig; one of those fancy new Webers with the thermometer.

    And aren’t those Weber chimneys the schizzle? I’ve had mine for about 6 years, where all the pot-metal junk I had before rusted apart in about a year.

    Whatcha cookin’?

    Yeah, having the tmometer is good. Don't know how accurate it is but it works for me. Mostly love the ash capture. Anyone who has a wooden deck would understand how important it is!

    The Webers are the best for smoking, because they're so well constructed for even heat retention.

    I have one, and of course, I also use it for grilling.

    But for grilling, I can use any piece of crap.

    The new Webers are garbage. Bought this one two years ago and the paint on the inside has already pealed. It sucks because in every other respect, it's a very good grill. I have Pit Barrel that I love also, but it's still at my son in-law's (not really my in-law, but practically) house.

    I brined a whole chicken last night, with rosemary, thyme, shallot, garlic, lemon, and a jalapeño.

    Sitting here in the dark now, listening to The Band by candlelight, waiting on my chicken.

    It doesn't get any better than that! Is the weather at least comfortable?

    We lost power for a week with Wilma, 2005, but the weather was still marvelously cool, a rarity for down here.

    Did you season the grill before cooking the first time?

    But I don't doubt that Weber may stick its name on stuff nowadays that doesn't match past quality.

    You could be out of power for a long time.

    Don't get your hopes up.

    Probably morning. There's no reason they couldn't be out there now, but they're waiting till the AM. Whatever, we're okay at least.

    Are you sure that's paint that's peeling on the inside? My Weber is about 12 years old, and through heavy use it gets large layers of creosote/whatever built up on the inside that peels off. Knock it all loose with a scraper, wire brush the rest as well as you can, and there's still a solid coating of paint on it.
