First of all I hope you all enjoy the day and take time to remember the sacrifices made by our service men and women who defend us each and every day and the ones who gave us this freedom from a few hundred years ago ( give or take). I am very thankful I live in a great country with great people like the ones on here who are all very helpful in any way.

With that being said, I just threw a nice 10 lb butt in the smoker for my cookout/ fireworks show tommorrow. It's gonna be a long night for me but my 9 yr old daughter is willing to stay up with me and tommorrow it's gonna be a turkey which is in the 'fridge soaking up the brine. I'll try to post more pics as I go.

ty. as a vet and as an american i can't say a thing except... i plan to show the kids ho to really blow things up wed. & make the cows nervous. i just couldn't not cook (only done like 150lbs of food in the last 10 days) so i think of all the food i froze ( y'all saw the pics), i will go donate some to the pva(paralyzed vets of america), the local women's shelter, & do a few hours @ the local american legoin hall &/or vfw as a pit tender. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
