Did something similar and my HOA sent me a letter stating no permanent structure allowed without prior authorization. It was up for 3 total days - went up Friday Night came down Sunday afternoon. I took a pic, printed it out, went up and down my street, got signatures from my neighbors, scanned it all. Then sent it to my HOA stating if they notified me for something like this again, per guidelines I would file harassment charges against them. WHO THE HECK thinks an EZ-UP is a permanent structure!!?!

Anyways - got side tract - love it! Great pic. How'd the meat turn out?

I've been in your shoes. Had to rig this up on Christmas Day one year. Rain to sleet then snow all that day.

I can imagine you get the "drools" every time you put that umbrella up!?

It's all the extras that make a tough cook all that enjoyable...

Is spring here yet?
