Well tomorrow I'll be having the family over for an early celebration. Unfortunately, this is the first fathers day without mine (I know a week early, but the only time we could all get together) and in grand remembrance of him I'll be smoking up some ribs; with his rub that I learned how to make from him when I was in my teens, a tenderloin fillet-ed and stuffed (with my own recipe), some brats and maybe a chicken if they are on sale. I'll follow up with how things turned out and if I figure out how to, maybe a pic or two. Just thought I would post this, as a reminder that next week is a day to remember and celebrate how we got here. For me and my love the the grill, smoker, open pit, under ground pit and all of the other ways of using my thumbs with fire and flesh I can attribute to my dad, hope you all have found memories as well!
