I should have been working this week, but things changed and I'm not. (Adam I'll fill ya in later)

So with the week off I'm doing projects I had planned for later on.

My fire pit had almost nine years of ash that was over flowing. I wanted to move it and do a complete new pit with fire brick and all, but for now this will have to do.

I dug all the old ash out and tried to sift some of it to add to the garden, but the sifting got old quick.

I ended up just shoveling the ash into five gallon buckets and dumping it in the weeds. Hard to believe but I got 26 buckets of ash out of there.

Once the ash removal was complete, I leveled out the dirt and threw down some brick for a hearth. I broomed in some of the sifted ash to fill the cracks and then got busy with the food.

The foil pack has Callaghan Potatoes in it (ask Huck if they are any good)
Cajun seasoned chicken breast and asperagus topped out the meal.

That looks awesome all around there buddy. Nice clean pit and some good eats.

I would have given up on sifting ash pretty quick too specially considering it was pretty windy out there today lol.

You need to get some dimensions and pics off Jesse for his cooking rack. That thing is SWEET.
