I don’t have is mesquite. So I thought after I got the charcoal and
royal oak going I’d throw on some mesquite pellets.

Then
I hear that you need to soak them in water and wrap them in punctured
tin foil and let them smolder. Then I’m told not to do it at all.

As long as they make smoke who cares. Oh well. I guess I’ll try
something to see what doesn’t work..



Too much time on your hands.

Those are your choices, eh? Maybe you should move to a place with more
eating venues.

Yeah, why learn to do anything if you can just pay someone?


Sort of depends on the quality of outcome you want, eh?


The only quality you can comprehend is the cosmetics on the outside.


You mean the beauty of your tiki bar is hidden?

The strength of the construction is there and not particularly well
hidden.
Several hurricanes later it is unharmed in any way.
You Northern folks can't say that. Any little dust devil or summer
squall devastates the place.
It is like "not quite a storm Sandy" that trashed a couple of states.

I throw wood chips in my gas grille all the time. It works if you can
keep them from just flaming up. On the metal plates, with low heat
they do smoke tho.
It may just be me but mesquite is not my favorite. I lean toward
hickory most of the time but button wood is good for fish like mahi


The foil packet with holes poked into it works great. No flame up, and you get smoke. Or splurge and buy a metal tray for the chips.

I have one I made from 304 stainless (check sorter parts). I found out
if I have the burners on low like you do when you are cooking chicken
or pork, the chips do OK on the metal plates over the burners. Soaking
them in water helps but that water steams out pretty fast.

The addition on the house has a load bearing beam that is far stronger
than the basic bond beam. This is 2 #5s and 4 #7s
http://gfretwell.com/electrical/addi...am%20steel.jpg
Even the cap tie beam is more than what used to be called a bond beam.
It is 16" of solid concrete with 4 #5s
http://gfretwell.com/electrical/addi...am%20forms.jpg

The Tiki Bars are post and beam construction with the posts notched
and the beams bolted in with 1/2" galvanized hardware (4 per joint on
the critical ones)
The posts are 6"x16' salt treated pilings, 5 feet in the ground.
A 40' mango tree landed on the old tiki bar during Charley and only
dented the aluminum roof a little. The beam was unharmed.
You also seem to miss a basic concept. A "Tiki bar" is supposed to
emulate a 3d world island construction. It is not supposed to be fine
cabinetry, hence the deck boards are different length etc. The newer
one has Ipe decking, mahogany and Ipe trim and both have granite
counter tops.
I just built mine to the 150 MPH code.
