It's about time.

Many of you can relate to Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" and what we do to follow our dreams.

There was quite a bit of Ground Fog this morning as I headed into Work. It was surprising to see Ron’s car already in the parking lot. Since his partner is off on Vacation this week and it is only a Four Day Week he has to work longer hours to get everything run through the Powder Coating System.

This morning I was once again filling in for Dan the Welder who is off on Vacation. After welding another Four Dozen Seat Brackets the Owner came up with a plan to modify the Rotisserie. While I was busy cutting Material on the Saw he was busy figuring dimensions that we would need to locate a new Mounting Plate.

Another Job came up that needed to be out the door by the end of the day so I was sent to work on that with Jim the other Welder. He made the assemblies while I started the welding. The dimensions called for a tolerance of Half a Millimetre. Since they were being Powder Coated we also had to clean them of all Splatter and Smoke Marks. They were shiny by the time we were done.

I finally got the Rotisserie modified just on time to be given another Job. This Job had already been completed according to the Print but the Customer’s Print was wrong. Now I have to use a Cutting Wheel to remove Forty Pieces before putting them in their proper location. I’d barely started that when I was told the Prototype will be back tomorrow for a few Modifications. That was a great way to end the day.

I was half way Home when it started to Rain. The closer I got the harder it was coming down. Once I was finally parked on our Site I had to sit in the Truck until the Rain slowed a bit. As soon as Kathy saw me heading for the door she opened it.
We talked for a while before she served a delicious meal that she had in the Crock Pot most of the day. We had Pork Roast with Sweet Potatoes and Carrots for sides. She then served us Yogurt Cups and Cookies for dessert.
Glad the Rain cooled things down.
That warm shower felt wonderful and really helped to relax my aching muscles.

One Question that we often get on our Blog about grilling Store Bought Pizzas is how we do it without Burning them. Due to the size of our grill we have learned to use a 12” Pizza Stone which helps to distribute the heat evenly. We tried putting the Pizza directly on the Stone with a disastrous result. We have also tried Pizza Pans that have holes in which might work over a Charcoal Grill but not ours. When I turn on the Weber I leave it on High. We then take the Store Bought Pizza from the Freezer and put it on a 12” Pizza Pan that has No Holes. By now the Pizza Stone is nicely heated and I simply place the Pan on the Stone and close the lid. Fifteen Minutes later l use a Spatula to make certain the Pizza is not sticking to the Pan and rotate it slightly because most grills seem to have a Hot Spot. Another Five to Ten Minutes use the Spatula to check the crust. If it appears to be toasted it is done. If you see smoke coming from under the lid you are burning your Pizza. We prefer Thin Crust Pizzas compared to the Rising Crust as they tend to overcook the bottom while the top is under cooked. The Pizza Stone will be Hot for an Hour after you turn off your grill.
It doesn't look like the forecast.
Tomorrow is another day so we’ll see what else we can get into. Thank you for following along and feel free to leave a comment.
Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

  1. Thank you for the pizza tips. I'll try it on my grill. I bet the flavor is much better! Sounds like you are very busy at work, but it's a nice distraction until you are ready to had south.

  2. Thanks for the pizza on the grill tips!! We have never cooked our pizza on our grill....we have a Blackstone. I do think it would work in a similar way. Kathy's dinner sure looked my crockpot!!
