bruno is alway stealing things. wood splits, wire brushes, he'll shred a bag of charcoal to bits. he's ran around the yard with my maul and a weed burner tank and all. and then there is the grease bucket. if I don't get to it he cleans it out for me. I tried to make an aluminium foil cone to keep him out but he just ate the foil

Gretta does! I have not found a good deterrent to keep her out of it. I just watch her close.

When the pit is going, JayBob raids anything remotely related to a few grease spots on the concrete etc. Their Nose Knows.

You cant blame Bruno. He knows you are fixing something good. Just consider him part of the labor for great BBQ. One day you'll look back and smile.

Yep. They love grease. Mine eats the lump charcoal out of my UDS basket, from the previous cook because it has fat/meat drippings soaked into it.
Bruno did a number on your wire brush handle, I see. :-D

I don't have a dog, and have a good fence. I had a little grease in my bucket on the bottom rack of my cooker, and was worried that it might tip over. The other day the bucket was tipped over, but clean. Either a rat or squirrel, I don't know for sure....

That must make some fun pooper scooping. I am glad i am not in charge of scooping our rotty's poop.

Not a squirrel. Possibly a rat but most likely a cat or raccoon.

he did a number on the brush head too. was rather angry that it bite him back. he's okay inside and only chews toys but outdoors he is a menace. there were some floats left in the pool and the wind blew them out today. he popped 2 and partially ate another

Put a pickle/spaghetti jar or larger if you need it inside the bucket then cap it when things cool off.

Dogs will be dogs. Want to know who loves you more, your wife or your dog? Lock them both in the trunk of your car, come back in two hours and see who is happy to see you.

If I let idiot out, he's all over the drips on the concrete patio.

You know those smaller grease cups of light aluminum under the gasser?

I'd usually have to go find it in the yard after a cook on it.

One time, it was totally perforated and looked like a sieve, as they licked it to death and then chewed the chit out of it

My dog has generally left the grease drains alone. But leave a couple gallons of oil in the turkey fryer after doing a couple turkeys, and he'll drink it all. I like to think for the next 3 days he regretted his decision. But I've never given him an opportunity to repeat since.

In the litter box they refer to it as "Almond Roca"

Basically, with dogs you have to protect them from themselves. Wire bristle brushes coated with grease need to kept out of reach. Buckets of grease need to be emptied or blocked off. Training works to a degree but can't be relied on if there is too much temptation and you aren't there. And yes, I've had to search the yard for drip pans and grates.:blabla:

Dogs can be a pain, sometimes. Our boxer mix, when denied going outside with us or on a car trip, will find shoes and hide them if they are left out. She doesn't chew on them, but my wife currently is in search of two sandals from two different pairs. Not a problem for me, I put mine away when not wearing them.

I once left fry oil out in the car port to deal with later...

2 months later 1/2 was gone... evaporation? hummm

6 months later I talk to some lady who's dog wanted into my carport... She says the dog got awful sick and Sk!T up the whole house about 4 months ago and it happened again 2 weeks ago when her dog got loose...

It hit me where the fry oil was going.... I had to hold back the biggest laugh of my life while keeping a strait face talking to her...

when she left I looked in the fry pot and the oil was GONE!

Must be a Bruno thing, our Bruno is a farker too. Licks my grill brush, tries to take greasy AL foil from trash, chews my wife shoes (maybe she'll put them away one day:roll:).

My little mini wiener is to low to the ground to notice my grease bucket. However we will be taking my daughters two dogs when they PCS to Hawaii next spring. Guess I will need to pay attention to this thread.

I ran a hose from pit's drain down to a gallon pickle jars with a PVC nipple in lid. Got the grease trapped in sealed jar. Dog hates me now.

I do too... Works great for preventing chapped lips. Rub a small dab on every morning and you'll never lick your lips again! :loco:

Yeah. Wife was worried sick the other day because one of the dogs was degreasing my wire brush without asking first.
