10/16/16 The subject:


Condition: lots of rust on the legs/triangle. Missing ash sweeps rusted in ash sweep bolt. White paint dots on the faded lid.  Usual cruddy bowl.  Missing handle.  Rusted/oxidized lid vent.  Missing ash pan.




Tackle the bowl with dish soap/water razor scraper/steel wool/sponge/paper towels.


Next, what’s left of the old ash sweep system is rusted in place.  Break out the oscillating tool and cut off the bottom nubs that went through and it broke free.


Now it’s time to clean the bottom of the bowl using the razor scraper/steel wool.


Having the legs removed start sanding them with 150 grit sandpaper using long strokes just as is advised in the Weber Kettle Club restoration guide, and then moving up to 250 and then finishing with steel wool and then polishing.

Legs and triangle before-


A finished leg on the left and an unfinished on the right-

Northeast BBQ

Found this cart locally and figure it will make a nice little staging area for the grill. I enjoyed the last grill table restore project but I’m thinking about going in a slightly different direction with this one.

You can check out the last project here-

It’s got some staining on the top.  On the last project I used spar varnish and the table came out great but on this one I’m thinking about sanding and then applying a stain of some sort and then Bobby Bobskill recommended a product called Poly Wipe.  Anyone ever heard of it?

Anyone know what…

I feel like I’ve been cheated by not going here sooner. I know Chef Doug Papows work is over the top spectacular but what I didn’t know was how incredible that space is.

You MUST visit the Pigeon Cove Tavern at The Emerson Inn in Rockport MA. The food, the decor, the space, the view, the service. It’s an over the top experience.

  We had an absolute blast at the Fishtown Horribles Parade and fireworks on the 3rd and Rockport Fireman’s Association Parade and bonfire on the 4th. I extend to all of the volunteers, organizations, musicians, and public safety officials a sincere thank you for making these events such a rousing fun success year after year.

Cape Ann is such a great place to visit, live, work, raise a family, and run a business. Not just because of the beaches, the woods, the dining, the museums, the arts, the sunrises over Thacher and the sunsets over Ipswich Bay. There is something far more powerful than any of that. It is the people.


Like us on Facebook and see all of YOUR awesome parade photos here!

  The people of Cape Ann are industrious, hardy, enthusiastic, and part of one community. As you can imagine that made it difficult to pick just…
