Smokin' and Grillin'

Ron and his friend Pat are going to be in a Barbeque contest this summer. To prepare for it and to enhance his techniques, Ron recently acquired a very cool new addition to our entertaining palate. A smoker. A very big, sturdy, serious smoker.
.
This weekend he went to the store and bought a little bit of everything, from a whole chicken to peaches, in order to give the smoker its maiden voyage on our driveway. I don't know who had more fun... Ron and his glass of scotch, thermometer and tongs, or me, watching him on the driveway totally immersed in his element.
.
I'm looking forward to many, many more afternoons of the same this summer. Bon appetit!

Scotch, huh? He may have to take the wheel when you guys come over. I don't think we have the same finesse!

So, if you need any taste testers to help give advice and opinions before the contest, you can give us a call. We'd be more than happy to help you guys out! ;)

Nice! I recently obtained a smoker...very similar to the one you guys have.

I was rocking a sour beer (Oud Bruin 529 from a local brewery) and the iPod...much to MY wife's enjoyment (I guess I was doing a Mr. Holland's Opus impression with the tongs).

The food wasn't too bad, either.

The experience has definitely brought back memories of my earliest experiments playing with fire as a kid.

Have fun, and good luck.
