After nearly a year of work, delays, and frustrations our backyard is finally finished.
So, without further delay, my new covered cooking area, our dinning and firepit sections, and Rhett's yard.
I custom made an exhaust vent to help carry the smoke out from underneath roof. It has an opening at the top, but we were more worried about potential smoke marks/damage to the wood finish.
The Jack Daniels whiskey barrel we picked up in Lynchburg on our Nashville trip last year. This isn't just a typical Jack Daniels barrel either. We were told that the grooves on the inside were specially done for the Sinatra Select batches.
One of my birthday presents to help keep my beer cool, and Lee Roy the pig with wings.
This is the wife's garden that a few weeks before this had 2 massive zucchini plants that nearly took over the entire garden. Yes, that's a penguin pirate flag.
And this is my little buddy Rhett. This project ended up costing more than we were expecting, but to watch this guy run around the yard, and try to get out the door every time I go out to cook, was worth every penny. He enjoys it just as much as we do.
