Smoking it up today

  1. Perfect day for smoking and not one cloud in the sky so NO chance of getting rained out today...........thank you LORD! 

    Anyway, today I'm smoking baby back ribs, a 8lb pork butt, beef short ribs, chicken lollipops and kielbasa sausage (for the cook).  Wasn't quite sure what category to put all of this in.....sorry SMF moderator!

    Along with all this amazing smoked meat, I'm making a couple of savory dishes; Ditalini Pasta Salad, and Fresh Coleslaw.  For desert; Double Fudge Espresso Cupcakes with chocolate filling and topped with a Kahlua Chocolate Cream Frosting.  These are definitely adult cupcakes lol.  I will post pics as soon as I'm finished with them.  Here's my q-views so far - more to come.  Happy Saturday everyone!

    With the amount of people this will feed, seems to me you could fit one more in!

    Never invite a fat, old, Canadian to a meal. He may show up.

    Nothing is better than cooking for and sharing food with family. Enjoy!

    You're gonna put those $10 buffets out of business! That is some great lookking food!!!
     
  20. my family dinner was amazing.  I loved visiting with my big brother and his long time girlfriend.  The food was off the hook good.  I know my Jerry was looking down and was saying, "everything looks so good babe as always."  Yeah to bad you gotta work tomorrow brotha J.  I fed 4 of my neighbors and I still have a ton of food leftover.  My brother said they are coming back over tomorrow for lunch!  Here's the last of my Q-views.  Everyone left about a half hour ago........time for a nightcap on the patio!  Tell the kids "hey" from Sophie!  Be blessed my friend.  Sista J
