    [​IMG]Hi all, I  have been making my DO table since last fall.  My first meal was stew, sheepherders bread and a very sinful chocolate cake..

    The next day I made cinnamon rolls out of the left over bread dough.  Was surprised that they were the best cinnamon rolls Ive ever made..A couple nites later t  made chicken and dressing and froze and used the left over bread for the dressing..

    And last nite I made pork, taters and corn.. forgot the biscuits tho..dang.. Anyway here are my pictures.. You can see the table in Wolmans DO table build on page two.. I posted them earlier when it was finally finished.. The pictures are loading out of order, but you get the idea

    Wow great job
  13. That looks awesome. I hope someone at the South Florida gathering in Nov. is going to do a DO gig.

    I'm fascinated by it. How in the world do you control heat?

    Again, nice job...James

    Dinner for around 50... Parents nite at Scout camp..Simple meatloaf around the inside with asperagus trees in the center.

    Looked and tasted great!!

    I feel a lot better today than I did a year ago.  I am very grateful to be alive today.. My motorcycling days are done.

     Thanks and have a great day!!


    I am planning on bring at least one of mine. Prolly make some deserts and jambalaya, chicken and rice or paella.

    Controlling the heat is easy...once you have done a few it gets real easy.

    Well Im a 60 yr old grandma and have been cookin all my life, so I check the heat by lifting the lid and feeling the heat....But I did a whole lot of study on how to do this and there are charts to show how many coals on top and bottom to reach the right heat..But found that its no different than cooking anything in a pot in the oven.. Baking was my big fear and it was just so easy..Give it a try. And the meat is so tender and juicy cooked this way.. Debra
  16. Hmnn, I see another section of my lanai taken up by equipment soon. And to think my wife wanted to put an in ground spa there indeed.

    Thanks Debra...James
  17. Cool fpnmf, I'm looking forward to learning from you, SmokinAl and the rest. It is going to be a blast.

    That looks like one great dinner and you cooked on your new table. I am impressed that you can cook like that. If I ever make it up there I will invite myself to dinner. LOL It would be a great bike ride in that area once the weather gets better.
