My Partner is turning 50 this month. 

It’s a big one, as birthdays go, right? So we’re upgrading our outdoor entertainment space for the party and I’ll share our best finds with you.

I’ve been researching for months to decide how best to maximize our budget. This has been quite a project! But I think I’ve gotten some good bargains on quality items. I’ll post party pictures afterward!

Jack Daniels Wood Barrel BBQ Chips
Chopped up bits of whiskey barrels. They add a lot to the flavor of ribs, especially.
