Cooking for a crowd?

RE: Cooking for a crowd?
"1"x2" furring strips in 3 places horizontally across your wall- top, middle, bottom."
That's what I did. Minus the plaster. Actually about 6 places for the taller boards. It's hard to see in these pictures but behind the bar each borad is 4" wide and goes from floor to ceiling. Around the rest of the basement, the boards are random widths 4", 6", 10" and only go up about 4 feet.
You did say plaster. Is it drywall?

RE: Cooking for a crowd?
Yep I said plaster. The house was built in 1964. Solid construction, but there is not one spec of drywall in the house. Its all original plaster walls, but not with the lathe strips that I can see. Looks like its been retextured a couple times. I cannot really SEE whats behind the plaster, but even upstairs is all plaster.

My thought is to put up 1x4 slats up top middle bottom, and then run the knotty pine slats vertically around the entire room. Its a 14 x 40 rec room area I am using for my office. The eventual goal would be to clean up the walls with knotty pine and run trac lighting lengthwise in the room on either side. The only problem I see right now is the trac lighting and the heat ducts which are in the ceiling.

I'm at the *other house* INTERNET and battery are iffy. Before I came here I prepared the prime rib(s) that's right 2 of them are ready for the rotisserie. I cut the bones almost off then seasoned all around, then tied the bones back on. Put them inside to be sure they fit (9+ pounds).
Tomorrow I'll cook them for a few hours (Medium).

The Salmon is in a lemon pepper marinade.

I hear the Hubby making "Homer" slobbering sounds as he looks over my shoulder at the view.
