    Well, I moved to the west coast of Florida 8 years ago after researching land fall areas for our Hurricanes. The Cedar Key area has some of the lowest landfalls for Hurricane history. But at this point, this is what I am looking at.

    It is coming right into the island that I fish out of. [​IMG]
    But, I have watched it move from landfall in Alabama to Naples in South Florida, then back to Cedar Key so.......It will probably change again. Atleast I hope so.

    Since I will probably be busy for awhile or may lose power, here is my Chuck Underblade Roast and some ABT's

    Marinaded in Mojo, then a good douse with Jeff's rub.

    Some ABT's too. Trying to be more healthy. So some lite Cream Cheese, lite Sharp Cheddar, one half of a little smokey and half of a slice of bacon. Gave them a good dusting with "Slap Your Mama" Spices.

    Around 4 1/2 hours I wrapped the roast. Probably around 158º internal. This one was taking its time.

    ABT's were done on the Gas Grill. We did these for appetizers and glad we did. We were getting hungry waiting on Chuckie.

    With Chuck getting close, Cher started some Okra.

    Chuck finally made a showing at 205º. 80% of it pulled pretty easy.

    Had some nice color, bark and was sure tasty.

    Dinners on. Can't forget the Yellow Corn.

    LOL, Cholesterol report came in the other day. 199......whoo hoo!!!
    looks like I can keep long as my smoker doesn't blow away.

    Keep me in your prayers everybody. [​IMG]

    I used to go to Cedar Key a lot, before they stated building a golf course... Beautiful place.

    If you go above 199, just BBQ and invite me up to eat it for ya... I'm still holding at 158 at age 43. Whoo hoo!

    Golf Course [​IMG] Nothing in Cedar Key and a small one in Chiefland.

    I was 219 before, but I have great levels of HDL. Lots of fish I guess? So my ratio kept the Doc with messing with my level of meds I take. My wife can't believe it because I have gained around 8 lbs since the last test, plus all the ribs, butts and chucks we've eaten. [​IMG]

    Last time I was up, I read in the paper a developer was planning to put up a resort with condos and a golf course. Well then, I need to come back![​IMG]

    Good looking chow! And here's wishing us all luck. Right now, it doesn't look like a real rip snorter but that could certainly change. Looks like it's going to the east of me but I'm keeping a close eye out. I sure hope I don't have to board up the windows ... what a pain in the neck.

    Flash the food looks great...I'm gonna have to try one of those under blade roasts!! All looks great! I love that fact that a hurricane is on it's way and you fire up the smoker!!!! I'm just picturing you and the smoker tied to a tree blowing sides with TBS going!! No joking though you and your family stay safe!!

    Not Cedar Key, but I think up around Horseshoe Beach there is still a battle going on. I think our little recession has slowed those thought down. Atleast for now.

    LOL, well there is always this years. [​IMG]
    We ended up getting 6 1/2 inches of rain tops. Across the Suwannee River (way down upon the Suuwaanneee River) about 13 miles away from me they are facing major river flooding. Around 13 to 18 inches of rain. [​IMG]
    Now we have another one coming. [​IMG]
