Not to hijack Gulf's thread anymore here's my last post on his thread and going to move to mine. But here is a picture of the how LarryK fastened the copper shingles to his masonary cover which was glass fiber reinforced concrete which was about 1/2" thick and precasted and set in place then the shingles attached with 5/8" ss self tapping pan screws.

Deer season! Sigh. We have lots of feral deer here. I know a bloke with an organic orchard, and the deer are jumping his fences and nibbling the buds off his trees at night.

He's a shift worker, and he can't be there to sort them out.
They come in from the National Park, which is well stocked apparently, but our city-centric Government wouldn't do something as sensible as have a season and issue permits to recreational hunters. Heaven forbid we might actually have some enjoyable hunting.

Glad to hear that Tom,

The older that I get the more that I seem to worry about folks that I know who are on these highways. And to think about it for a second or two,........ I just got back from the redneck riveria an hour or so ago myself .

I hope that on your next trip to MS, that I can be home and by that time maybe have some WFO ecooking experience under my belt.

We made it home no worries, Lafayette yesterday for tailgating at the UL game, then home today. The scene of that wreck was about 2 miles long on both sides of the highway and it was not hard to see. Jeez, what a mess.

Hey Gulf,

What's been happening with the Queen? I am pretty much shutdown from a construction view point only hit a high of 21 degrees yesterday, in the 30s today. Been slowly procurring materials and tools for the dome covering but other than that not so much, Your weather probably allows you to keep on putting along. I guess your done curing?

Yes, I think that I am done with curing. From my experience, The Dude's heat beads (charcoal briquettes: the american translation ) is the "ticket". I believe that it is a much milder way to cure than doing increasingly larger wood fires. To paraphraise David S. on another thread, the fires still create extreme temps on the apex of the dome well before doing any thing for the sides.

I had to wait about two weeks after the charcoal cure (due to other obligations) to use well seasoned limb wood to see and smell my first dome clearing. (I still used the method of increasingly larger wood fires, though.) Wow, it was a sight to see this thing start turning white at the apex and slowly consuming the black smoot until the entire dome was clear. I did notice that there was no more damp heat coming from the vent hole at the top of the dome and the shell felt almost an ambient temperature.

After clearing the dome, I placed four foiled potatoes and a sirloin tip roast in the large flue/entry of my oven. I placed my Willie G. Blast door and and tweaked the damper to get the flue area to about 340 degrees F. The potatoes were placed about half way between the inner arch and the center of the the flue/entry. The roast was placed closest to the outside of the flue. They both turned out great.

I am finished with my "Red Neck Rivriera" side line job and hope this weekend, that I can do a little more experimenting with the MQ.

Thank's V-wiz, you have one heck of a back drop for your oven. That is a beautiful view. I really do like your old brick. They will look great on your stand, but if you can get enough of them, the limit is only your imagination .
