These guys are fantastic. I wish I would have found them about oh, six months ago.
There is some bad news/good news from them though. Good news is they got everything installed today and all that's left is to wire it up, which he said will take about a half hour. Bad news is they commented on the gas line to the smoker and said they didn't think it was up to code. After a few calls, they were right. And I paid some motherfarker $800 to run that line and all for nothing. Absolutely ridiculous. Good news is they are going to fix that issue tomorrow as well, and they are glad they caught it before calling the inspection only to have that end up derailing the whole thing again.

I can't wait! I want to work all day every day. I can't be cooped up in this house any longer.
So close yet so far. Mechanical inspection is officially scheduled for Thursday. Now, I just need to call the health inspector and beg him to come out on Thursday at the same time, or right after the mechanical guy comes so we can flip the switch and open the doors. I told both of those a-holes that they need to get on the same page and come on the same day so this nightmare can come to an end and not get pushed off another week.
That means come tomorrow morning I hope he's on board and can give me an exact time he will come by, which would then give me an official opening time on Thursday. Hopefully early enough to open for lunch, but even if we can only open for dinner, so be it. I'll take anything at this point.
