I don't want a holiday in the sun.

It's time for me to spend more time outdoors. I don't plan on doing any camping or fishing anytime soon. I'm thinking of outdoor activities that involve a lot of sitting and watching. So today I went outside and sat and watched my smoker burn through stick after stick of hickory. Here are some pics. Sorry for the dull colors (almost yellowish tint). But what do you expect for nothing?

Thick cut bacon. Dredge it in:
Brown Sugar
Cayenne pepper
Smoke it for 2 hours (250-275*)

Brisket with burnt ends. Maybe someone who knows something about photography can explain why my camera makes this brisket look like it's slathered in mustard (it's not, really!!).

A good day overall. We had ribs as well, but my sons destroyed those slabs - they hit them like rats on a cheeto!

Here's my fist in the face of winter. Listen to this over a nice plate of Q - especially if you are knee deep in snow!
