The pie should be the star of the show but I'll keep things in order. John, extend my thanks to Mrs. Bear for allowing such a delicious dessert to be shared.....it was off the charts good. Scored a 8 pound butt for .99 a pound at Safeway. Invited some friends over to help eat the monster. Into the smoker with cherry wood Tues night at 9:15 set at 225. Pulled off at 3:30 Wed. for a 3 hour wrap & rest. Some pictures are AWOL due to copious amounts of adult beverages being consumed getting ready for the dinner. There are missing pics of pinto beans simmered up with onions, garlic and bacon and Brussels Sprouts that were cut in half, then caramelized on the bottoms in melted butter while snuggled up close in a large cast iron pan. I made a Marionberry Chiffon Pie since I had those already. They are a hybrid cross of 2 blackberry varieties developed up here in the PNW. The rest of Mrs. Bears recipe was followed. More of these will be made...
