But first, a confession.
Sometimes blogging is a bit of a drag. I love this blog. I started it for me, but there is a LOT of pressure to get a million hits a month and make money off of this damn thing. And I think you can tell from my last few
Alright, enough of that.
New favorite thing:
No, not fire (per se) but using the hell out of the grill. But not grilling, either!
Smoking! That's right, I'm a smoker. And I'm not ashamed to admit it. Smoking meat is my new favorite thing to do on the weekends, and the rewards are sweet.
This is my grill/smoker/everything:
And I love it. I can toss some veggies on the left, and smoke meat on the right. And, keep in mind, I lay in the pool and read a book when I'm not tending the food. It doesn't suck.
I have now smoked and shredded multiple pork picnics (after rubbing them with a combination of cayenne, salt, and pepper), and then doused them with barbeque sauce. It's a feast for the senses. Really.
Rest-assured more smoking recipes will be coming. And for those of you who like details - it takes about 12 hours, at 250 degrees, to smoke a 12 pound pork picnic (bone-in) with applewood chips. You can thank me later.
