Smitty if you watched the video and saw how they made it .. I can't believe you never had the opportunity to make it yourself........
In fact, I could imagine you using the ice auger to help stir the pot.... .. ..
I'm gonna fire that recipe over to the wifey - she loves to cook, and I love to eat so It'll be perfect.
I've got the auger reserved for the mash tun.

Yeah I hear you there - I went just 1/2" less exposure on the barn and ended up a bundle short, then had to use the old leftover house shingles for the caps. The second vertical section in the back I left - it already had 3-tab on. They're old and green, but they don't leak ... and I was outta cash anyway.
At least 95% of the roof is new.
The vertical section on the front got the hurricane nailing pattern (went through a shitload of nails!) - was going to keep that pattern for the whole roof, but was taking way too much extra time and extra money I didn't have. When I finished the whole roof, I went back with the heat gun and stuck down any that were sticking up. Had some pretty steep angles to form around, so the heat helped big time. These are architecturals - seems to be the only style you can buy around here anymore. Just getting 3-tab for caps is a pain in the ass, unless you know someone in the business - all the places stock architecturals, but you have to order 3-tab. MA has strange market strategies ...
Anyway, here's the barn. Can see a couple of my screwups if you look closely. I didn't strike one chaulkline the whole job - did it all by eye:
