Mother's Day...............
« on: May 12, 2013, 09:02:13 PM »
 The wife has a habit of bringing me gifts on her days ( B-day, Mother's Day, etc. )

Today, she & her younger daughter planned a Mom's day event to paint a bunch of the seashells she brought back from Galveston Bay Texas on a recent vacation.....
So, of course they needed to get "stuff" to do this & went to the arts & crafts store ~~~~> Came back w/ a prize for Dad....



Wait a minute.....let me get this in focus.....



Weird, what is it?



Ah.....Bacon.....



OK......I'm covered....what's up for the Moms?

T-tip........all injected up w/3 different mixes.....


Rubbed w/ gran. garlic, some Texas rub she brought back & Pappy's low-salt....


Having led a fairly sheltered life, this is the1st time ever, in the history of the world I've used a charcoal basket....no idea what I'm doing.................
the Brownie....


Lulu ~~~~>


Found my ancient charcoal rails that I bought new, way back when.....of course they're hanging right where somebody left them 5 years ago......
Used them on one side w/a basket.................


the single moved along just fine @ 275...


The one w/ the rail & basket skyrocketed to 400 & I thought  for a time I wrecked 'em.....last tip foul ball was over 4 years ago, so I was hoping it wasn't a mess...........
These one's had a fatcap which burnt right up at those temps...


Pulled & wrapped @ about 155 & when rested, came out just fine....


About a 3/4 cup of pre-made ajus per....


3/8" slab brisket bend test....


Also did zucchini slabbed & a bend test there also...........


Med. well & not quite, but almost fork tender........




Fed the gals here, then drove Mom some across town & when I got there she said the wife had called....I forgot to take the strawberries, great tomatoes & apple tart we got at the farmers market early this morn.....BACK in the truck, back home, get the stuff, back to Ma's, back home, message on home phone: "That's the best dinner I've had in a long time; I ate some of all of those things & it was just perfect !!!"

Makes it all worthwhile.....

Happy Mother's Day  !!!

That looks great! I should figure out what tri-tip is called 'round these parts (or pick out some other cut of beef that can be cooked similarly.)  Or I could thaw some of the standing rib roast that I squirreled away. ;)

I like zucchini on the grill as well, particularly when I've just picked it from the garden. That's a ways away though. Not even planted yet and we've had frost the last two nights. :( But I am getting some walking onions and they grill up nice.  :D
kettles, smokers...

BOTTOM sirloin tip, not to be confused with sirloin tip roast......Hell Fire Grill put together a thread on Smoke Ring all about it, I'll see if I can dig it up.......shows how-to, incl.vids, carving, what to ask butcher for, etc.

Well, says right in there....have no idea what I'm doing &"The one w/ the rail & basket skyrocketed to 400 & I thought  for a time I wrecked 'em.....last tip foul ball was over 4 years ago, so I was hoping it wasn't a mess..........."

So that's how the charcoal basket worked out....teetering on the brink of disaster.....

Thanks, Bob Hope !!!

Cheap entertainment, eh what?


Tip was very good, Ron...thanks.....just not the medium rare the rest of the world demands ~~>
