Thank you Kieth! It was a lot of fun and the company always is a key factor! These people have been through a lot of ups and downs together with us. The wives support each other when we are gone…and are hone, while the guys stare at flames and red meat nodding between sips of bourbon. It’s a great group I’m blessed to share. I appreciate your time and compliments!Wow Jed that's a fine looking spread right there ! I'm sure it tasted even better shared with friends and beverages.

Very appreciated Ringer!Crazy epic meal man, well done!
Thank you Jeff! You actually got me into the Sazon Goya with that awesome tomato soup recipe! I meant to give you a shout out, sorry! Ever since you introduced me to it I buy it obsessively and have used it in a lot of different ways. Most of these recipes on this cook are inspired or influenced by you guys here! A little of the SMF family contributions in each biteJed not to overuse the word but man you went EPIC! Everything looks fantastic and the post was enjoyable to read the details on. I use the Sazon Goya achioto y cilantro in many things myself.
Thank you Jack! I would have enjoyed a clone! My wife offered to help, but I get a bit obsessive and she doesn’t like how I ask her to do things So, it was just a lot of notes and steady grind!!! But I was wiped out and slept until 10 the next day! Probably would’ve slept that long even without the booze I appreciate your time and compliments!What an epic meal Jed. How many clones of yourself were helping?
If I'd done all that by myself, I'd be worthless for a couple days, but then again I'm old and mostly worthless already.
Ahh! Thank you Brian! I can’t recommend that sauce enough, it’ll go great with those steaks you just prepped! I shouldn’t have been lazy and included it, I appreciate the effortWow Jed!!!! What a cook and great time! Had to find that wine sauce:
@bmudd14474 got me spinning last week with his egg rolls and the discussion. It was a long weekend of cooking and a lot of fun! I tried 4 or 5 variations on about 6 different recipes and combined them in different ways or with different cook technique. It’s hard to organize into a thread. I...www.smokingmeatforums.com
Thank you Robert! Your technique for red meat is spot on! The long rest before a pan sear kept the red where it needs to be, like I told others, there is a lot of SMF help in all of those recipes and techniques and I really appreciate all you guys have taught me!Absolutely incredible Jed. A truly stunning array of food and a monumental effort. I would have been honored to be in your company and sit down to a plate (or 6) of that. What an amazing feast. You have some very lucky friends.
Thank you Al! I really appreciate your time and compliment!Holy cow!
It doesn’t get any better than that, Jed!
Thank you! It was a great time and always fun to do these things for friends! I appreciate you!WOW!! What a meal, Jed. It's all simply amazing and what an effort for your friends, I'm sure that they all enjoyed it immensely...

Nice job bud .
Thank you Sandy! I was in a coma for about ten hours after they left! I appreciate your time!That is a load of goodness there! Man I would have a beef coma going for days.
Thank you! It was a lot of fun! You guys have ruined me in all the best ways everyone here helps keep the ships rising in a very healthy way. Great place to learn and work to do better with each cook! I appreciate your time!Bucking for promotion there buddy. Holey feast! That is an incredible cook, write up and presentation. Absolutely phenomenal, it’s final, we have officially ruined you. You will never again be the same. Just out of the park on this one. Wow.

Thank you John! Yes, maybe a bit better than what we are used to or deserve If it makes an old Army Dog feel better, the bourbon was cheap so it balanced out!Outstanding young man! That is next level stuff there.
I like to try new things but the way you thought out and plated all of that is inspiring. Just what I needed. Thanks.
I do have to wonder if the meal was too good for a bunch of Jarheads? Haha, JK I'm ex Army had to do it.
Thank you Chili! Thats a big compliment coming from you, I’m always impressed with your plating and posts! I appreciate your time!Fan'F^>/<ing'tastic!
You're were absolutely correct in plating for them.
A meal like that should be served as the chef sees fit to compliment each course.
No worries my friend! Things get busy, I have a hard time keeping up here too But I appreciate your time and compliment! It’s an honor to serve and privilege. Thank you for your kind thoughts.Jed, my friend… so sorry to have missed this! That meal is beyond phenomenal and top notch! It should have its own separate category! You hit a Grand Slam there bud!
Thank you to yourself and your friends for defending our freedoms! Also, my families sincere appreciation for you and your friends and families sacrifices! And the ones that were lost… our prayers for their ones left behind!
My Grandpa seen the worst of WWII, on the front lines for the duration of the war! I now know how lucky I was to get to know him. He served from day one and one of the last to come home! He would never speak of it!
