    I want to appoligize for my lack of posting, I do look in I swear, but real life has been keeping me busy. Oh and its damn HOT outside...LOL

    So today being Father's Day, I fixed my Pop a steak for Supper. Sorry.........   not too many pictures, but a steak doesn't need a lot of prep.


    2 each, Prime cut ribeyes.

    Prep, set out the meat for three hours before cooking to come to room temp., rub down both sides with salt and ground black pepper. One side add a touch of garlic. Rub it complete with farm fresh butter, its a prime ribeye, splurge! My secret, now I do a single pass with the Jacard. It pushed the spice and butter into the meat while guaranting mucho tender. Make sure and butter rub around the sides too! That fat just melts down so beautifully. Lastly about three or four drops, not shots, of Lea & Perrin's. 

    Fire up the pit, nice and hot, I threw in a few pecan shells and oiled the expansion metal.

    Throw on those steaks!

    All the sides are made and even heated up! Now I become the steak whisperer.


    Damn I miss that smokie smell! 


    Flip 'em, I now understand you can do it more than once but with the short cook time I only got 3 flips. And a perfect medium rare piece of cow!


    I used to always order my good steaks thusly (even in the most expensive resturants); "wipe its butt, knock off the horns and run it across the fire one time, if it don't moo when I fork it, its too done!" I did these a bit more medium rare, Pop's getting older....LOL

    And the Bear view?


    Let me 'splain whatcha see. That's obviously a beautiful steak, fresh cantaloupe, green peas & fresh carrots w/ little pickled pearl onions, and spicy fresh peach, maple, sweet taters. I didn't make bread, didn't wanta heat the house up.

    Lastly, the man of the day, Minor league pitcher, WWII Vet.,self taught engineer, and will be 92 this year. My Pop.


    Don't worry he always looks like that these days. Just a crusty old fart! LOL

    Our car, he uses a walker to walk, the chair was because it was outside and we didn't know about seats. Complete originally restored 1931 Model A.

    Happy Father's Day to one and all!

    Thank you
    You know, I assume its near universal, as a pup I did not want to grow up and be just like my Pop. All I wanted to do was get away and make my own path. Then you realize one day what you missed, and work towards getting back to were you started. You wonder how it is that you could have been so blind. 

    And Thank you.

    Thanks and ya know, you maybe right.
    Thanks Gary. The car is perfect, the steak was outstanding, and Pop..... he's just Pop. We just finished bobing his second ear to get the cancer off. So he wasn't just really happy on father's day..>LOL  But when baby sis shows up he just turns plumb human again...LOL

    Great looking steaks, great looking car, and you are blessed to still have your pop around to cook for.  Mine has been gone for 7 years, and I would have loved to cook a steak for him on father's day.

    Good story all the way around. Steaks looked awesome. Car looks really good. Very nice pics of it. Sorry to hear about the cancer on your dads ear. Hope he does well. Been thru that with family member. Its a scary time. We all get to be crusty ole farts one day. Lol. All that you do for him. He knows. It all stems from Love. Dads are the best.

    Thank ya, Thank ya..... and they were awesome steaks!
    You know, I messed up, I should have cut those steaks open for a shot. Had I though, everyone would have needed a drool towel.

    I am actually calling these our "Bonus" years.

    Most folks have never heard of Hamm's beer, I think it was thier's anyway. Its a cartoon type commercial and they are interviewing and old looking hill lady and she says, "No I can't rightly credit my longevity to good good clean healthy living because that my grandma over there with the buck-saw she's 110 and she smokes and drinks Hamm's beer every day!" That's my Pop.....  LOL He quit smoking in his late forties and quit drinking in his early 90's.  Now he's just bored..>>LOL

    Thanks Dave, appreciate it.
    We've been removing cancers for 20+ years. Some bad, some minor.... Comes with where we live. I don't know if its true now but at one time the river here was called cancer alley. We had the large number of cancer reported in the country. All the plants here dumping into the river.

    After the first time Pop had his arms planed, sanded, he asked the doc if he needed tio wear a long sleeve shirt. The doc told him no, but he should have 50 or 60 years earlier.....LOL

    Its not about the amount of time, but the quality of it that matters. Let me link a great great vid link for you. They are all sub-titled.



    (BTW ya might want to find a clean towel before you watch it)
