    Here's a bit of a grill view... Had to eat tonight :) I did throw a bit of cherry and peach wood into the propane grill to get just a bit of taste -- it was perfect!

    Pork chops and a few baby bellas

    Ok, so typical of Costco, it's two boneless - which is fine, but today I decided to separate the two hunks into 4... I put these two on the lower rack:

    And these two on the upper:

    And because I think my propane-smoker-that-gets-used-like-a-champion-wood-smoker is a miracle worker that has turned this anti-BBQ person into a Smoking Goddess, I expect it'll come out like this!!

    Ok, maybe not, but I beat it'll be just as tasty!

    Just a few other pics of what's had so much of my attention lately:

    She's 112 days old and absolutely PERFECT! Kat, her eyes are green!

    Ok, I knew I'd forget something; brining chix in buttermilk and Cackalacky (a sweet potato base with some nice heat, almost reminded me of Tiger Sauce but a lot thicker with a really cool sweet-potato sweet on the back end- y'all gotta get you some!! OMG!!)

    But it's real thick, because the marinade is thick... I didn't add the typical blend of spices boiled together and then cooled with ice cubes and added to buttermilk, the near stroke in May has me not adding salt to items already heavy in salt-- do I rinse my chickys off or just kinda pat 'em dry and send them in?
