Wife is GONE!!!!!!!!!!!

Discussion in 'Blowing Smoke Around the Smoker.' started by martin1950, Apr 16, 2019.

  1. Made the round trip in and out of Chi-town yesterday, put the wife on a plane to Idaho for 2 weeks. I ain't seen that much traffic since I left the Bay Area. Being home all alone, except for the horses, cats, dogs, parrots and 3 tanks of Koi, I've decided to catch-up on my smoking tomorrow and I'll start with a 9# Butt, 4# pork loin, couple of beer-can chickens, 2 chunks of beef and 7 blocks of assorted chesses. Even warned the fire chief that I'd be using both smokers and the smoke was going to be rolling out of the garage because of a good chance of rain. The only problem is I just can't decide on what to have for supper tomorrow nite. But that's a good problem to have. Heck, I might even put together a pan of beans tonite. Even got a new 5&1/2 qt Dutch oven I ain't used yet. 20190416_135402.jpg

  5. Dave, it's no secret to her that I can cook. When we met over 45 years ago she was a civil contracted K.P. and I was the Mess Sargent. She knows.

    I love to cook, don’t mind shopping, and hate cleanup ... and my wife of almost 40 years is complete opposite ... perfectly complementary.

  9. Ain't quite set-up for a gathering yet but I wouldn't rule one out in the future. I'm only on 2 & 1/2 acres and most of that in horse fencing.
     
  10. I have several pasture's as well. Wouldn't be the first time I've slept in one. :emoji_laughing:

    That's enough of a feedbag for the Koi, but what are you, the horses, dogs, cats and parrot gonna eat?

  15. Way back when I was in the Army, the word was Army cooks go to cooking school to forget how to cook. LOL!

    I wasn't sure where you were going when you said the wife is gone then proceeded with: Being home all alone, except for the horses, cats, dogs, parrots and 3 tanks of Koi, I've decided to catch-up on my smoking tomorrow...I was half expecting a bad divorce and you were going to cook most of the animals you listed for revenge.

    I'm glad there was a better outcome than what was in my sick mind. :emoji_wink:

  17. Well after 11 hours of running to and from the garage tending 2 smokers and a meat slicer, EVERYTHING is done. Not only that but everything is sliced, pulled, sectionalized, bagged and tag and the kitchen and slicer and pans are all clean. Made a few oop's but they were minor. All I'm doing tomorrow is dicing some potatoes and putting the hash together. And I even got some PP to my farmer neighbor as a thank you in time for supper. Now if I starve to death in the next two weeks it's only because I broke both legs and can't get to my freezer.

    hb99, funny, I was trained at Ft. Lee VA. yeah, on an Army base. I'm sorry if my opening sentence confused ya, nah!!
