Hemming BBQ

If you’ve seen Paul’s account recently you will see the awesome BBQ shack he is building. I can’t wait to see the finished results. I may have to borrow some ides for mine! Banging out some awesome pizzas on his Ooni, and cooking an impressive variety off meals - the ribs in particular looking good to me!
