    Default I need Burlap!

    Not for my smoker fuel but for my Niece's wedding. She needs a 100 yards. 60" is what she has found but prefers 72". Best price she has found is $220.00 for a 100 x 60. Figured someone in the bee nation knows a dealer or knows someone that can hook a brutha up. Let me know.

    Natural Color is that makes a difference.

    All of my burlap has "Product of Chile" printed on it. Probably won't work?

    Give Wal-Mart or Cloth World a try if you got them nearby.

    Neil obviously has never been exposed to wedding planning mania. You don't ask questions if she says "get burlap" you just ask how much and how soon.

    I've bought it at Walmart in the past, but our local one doesn't carry it anymore. We still have a Gibson's store that carries it, and I'll check their price next time I'm there (next week).
    So many weeds.......so little time.

    You might want to check with Sacramento Bag Company in Woodland California. Doubt if there's free shipping like Mann lake around the corner but might be worth a gander to help you get what you need.

    Just picked up two bales of scrap for the old smokers there today.

    In the past they have had rolls of new stuff of different weights (density) for sale. 5- 6 feet wide if I recall correctly. Would work great for tablecloths and who knows what else.

    What a way to help celebrate a wedding. Since the old groom will be "burlapin" the bride once the weddings over it might as well put it to double use.

    Better than reusing old coffee bags in the smoker fer sure.


    For all you history or linguistic buffs who happen to be beekeepers you need to check out the following links especially if you "burn" burlap in the ol' smoker.

    In the early part of the past century the people in a little valley north of Santa Rosa came up with their own language. One of the words they "invented" was burlapin which referred to taking a romp in / on the sack. Check it out.

    Next time you throw some burlap in the smoker just keep in mind that it might have been used for a better purpose.


    Ever wonder why the smokers get red hot when you pump them so fast. Now you know. Everything in life has more than one meaning I'm sure.
