FirstThink about trees nearby and how future growth may block views of the flag or branches get too close to the flag fully extended in a breeze.  Also, consider how close the pole is to buildings or rooflines which may cause problems when the flag is flown at half staff. you have to select the best location. Don’t settle on a location that can be challenging in case you decide on building expansion in the future. Save yourself some time and money by deciding on the best location for your flagpole right from the start.

Second –  Dig the proper hole for your pole size.  Your pole will extend usually 10% of the distance of the pole height above the ground.  Dig the hole about 4 to 6 times the diameter of the base of the pole and to the required depth.   Insert the sleeve provided with the pole into the center of the hole.

Third Fill the area around the sleeve with regular concrete.  Do not use a rapid setting mix as it will damage the sleeve.  Wait a day or two before inserting the pole into the sleeve.  Then plumb the pole with wooden wedges and fill the rest of the empty area with sand and drop flash collar to have a finished looking base. Oh, by the way, you did remember to add all the accessories and flash collar to the pole before dropping it into the sleeve, right?

They are always keeping on top of the latest trends that crop up and share your enthusiasm for the backyard grill. With that said, they want to provide you with some interesting facts that you may not have known about cooking your favorite  BBQ products.

To Marinade or Not to Marinade?

For example, the good people at K.D. Scholten will bet that you did not know there is a debate raging around whether marinades actually work or not. Some backyard chefs swear by them while others say that telling people a marinade will sink deep into the meat they are grilling is nothing but a myth. However, both sides of the debate agree that a good marinade will prevent food from drying out.

Fired Up?

There are a few things that most backyard chefs in El Paso agree on and one is that K.D. Scholten offers up some of the best BBQ products. The other is that spraying water on  grease fires only serves to move the grease around on the grill where  it will surely fire up again. The best suggestion when  a flare up occurs is to move all the food to one side and let the flames subside on their own.

Finally, it is a good idea to remember flipping food on your grill will not make the meat tough. That’s the best method to use to make sure it gets cooked equally on both sides and avoid illness. For the best BBQ products the Sun City has to offer, contact K.D. Scholten today!
