It’s going to be an amazing day!

Well, yesterday I took a beef brisket and gave it a mustard rub down and totally covered it in a sweet and spicy rub, wrapped it in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge where it has been absorbing said flavors while waiting to do its think on the smoker. I also soaked two chickens in a brine for about four hours before rinsing, drying and rubbing down with some bbq sauce and a little mustard and then a generous amount of a rub I put together. There are also about 16 good sized burgers seasoned to perfection that are chomping at the bits to get onto my smoker. All in good time burgers, you’ll get your chance.

The very colorful salad is prepared, the homemade garlic bread is put together and only needs a little time in the oven. Let’s see, the home brewed Pale Ale is chillin’ in the fridge waiting for this evening as well. I have a feeling a few of them might volunteer to be consumed before this evening since who can spend a day smoking meat and not enjoy a few?

With all the bad going on in the world, the economy in shambles we can spend our days moaning and complaining about all that’s wrong. Or we can recognize there is problems, do our part to make sure we are not a part of that problem; then move on and share a wonderful meal with family and friends and focus on the good things in life.

Let me ask you, what is better than sharing a meal filled with conversation, laughter and smiles with family and friends?
