How to Cool Your Garage DIY

How to Cool Your Garage DIY

Caitlyn and I spend a lot of time in the garage.  Now that BubsandHoneyCo is in full swing, we are frequently both in the garage printing and working on other projects.  Since it’s “basically” Summer in Louisiana, it gets pretty hot out there.  I’ve been […]

Percy Quin State Park

Percy Quin State Park

We are always looking for quick weekend trips that require less than an hour drive.  We live just on the other side of Lake Maurepas from New Orleans, so we’re lucky to have a number of places that fit the bill.  Percy Quin State Park […]

The Best Place to Camp on Dauphin Island

The Best Place to Camp on Dauphin Island

The sleepy beach town of Dauphin Island has really grown on Josh and I this past year. It’s close to home, it’s underdeveloped (this is good, in our opinion), and the word “touristy” never comes to mind. These few points makes it close to perfect […]

Bogue Chitto State Park

Bogue Chitto State Park

It’s surprising to think that as close as this state park is to our home (the closest), Josh and I hadn’t explored it yet. I suppose we tend to picture our “get away” as getting a-w-a-y. Craving a camping trip so last minute, it was […]

If you’re just now jumping on board my “building an offset smoker” wagon, you should probably go and read part one first.  This post will make a lot more sense! Once we get to this part of the build, it’s important to note how much support […]

Building an Offset Barbecue Smoker – Part One

Building an Offset Barbecue Smoker – Part One

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m maxed out with my current cookers as far as capacity.  Thirty pounds of meat is about as big as I can go, and to go that big requires a whole lot of extra work maintaining two cookers that function and […]

Summer Barbecue Plans

Summer Barbecue Plans

Most everyone that knows me, knows that I love barbecue.  Not just in the sense that I like to eat it, but all the small acts that come together over the ten plus hours it takes to cook brisket, pork shoulder, ribs, chicken, whatever.  I […]

What to Pack for an RV Trip

What to Pack for an RV Trip

Updated 6/26/2017 Josh and I took our second trip with the camper this weekend. We’re hooked. As big of fans as we are of tent camping, we’re not sure we’ll ever stay in a tent again! Okay, okay maybeee that’s dramatic, but our camper is […]
