Well it has been a great time so far. We’ve had nice weather and a very cool location. Lou-Ann cooking her little heart out. She has been teaching us how she likes to be treated. So here are a few pictures, because it really is happening.

It’s a really cool rig it does take some learning though. It gets to temp in about 15 minutes, that was shocking to me.

Yea, that’s super fast for that much cubic feet of cooking chamber. That’s awesome! Those guys do know how to build a smoker though so I guess I’m not all that surprised. Haha

Looks like you guys were well fed... Be interesting to see pics of Lou Ann in all her glory...


Learning generally boils down to "Repetition or the avoidance of pain", some people learn by doing, some by watching and some just have to pee on the electric fence.

The salad is just for show to send to the significant other to let them know your eating “healthy”...
