I've got 18.8lbs of pork shoulder smoking away in my ugly drum now... been in since 5:30 this morning. We may not get started on it tonight, but it will definitely be tomorrow's supper.

What is an ugly drum? Smoked pork shoulder is on the menu for Sunday. Simple dry rub on Saturday and smoke all day Sunday.

Geno it's a smoker built from a 55 gal drum. Online they are usually just called ugly drum smokers, or a UDS.

I made a big pot of chilli last night.Just your basic receipt,but it was good all the same.I am not one for food so hot and spicey,that it burns the bottom out of your stomach.

I agree Maynard, I prefer good chili to so spicy you cant eat it chili. I'm sure this is pretty universal, but i judge all chili against my Mom's recipe.

Darn it, now I'm hungry for Chili.

Tonight it was some venison loins marinated for 24 hrs in Encrypt's great recipe. They turned out great. The only problem was no gas in the grill, so they went into the pan.

Thanks again Encrypt

A large healthy salad with plenty of red onions and blue cheese capped off the meal.

Dave that looks great!

I'm about to go fire up the grill & cook up some burgers & hot dogs. I was going to do something else, but driving home from PT I smelled several grills cooking away... that was all the influence I needed

Our dinner tonight was leftovers. The other night we made thin cut pork chops and asparagus on the grill. We made more than we could eat so the wife saved the leftovers for a future dinner. My wife heated the chops and asparagus in a fry pan on the stove. It tasted as good tonight as it did when we first made it.

I don't know what the name of this is,but today I'm going to make a dish with haddock pieces and potato slices.And to pour all over it,a "ton" of onions fried in butter.Every time I make this,I always eat way too much,it's that good.

I'd love to try it. Let me know if I have the basics right. The fish and potatoes are already cooked? How did you cook them? Is that all, just those four things?

Thanks

I think we are having Reuben's for supper tonight.

Dave,and Kenny,
Take the salt fish (haddock) and soak it in water over night,to soak out some of the salt.The next morning,drain the fish,and put it in a good sized pot on top of the stove.The potatoes are uncooked at this time.Slice the potatoes up in the shape of french fries,and put them in with the potatoes.Now add water,enough to cover them over.Turn on the heat and bring to a boil,and cook for about 20 minutes.Or until the potatoes are cooked.

At the same time,take some onions (6 or 7 medium size),and slice they up in a frying pan,and fry them in butter. Or you could use a good margarine,but I like butter. You want quit a bit of butter.

Once the fish/potato mix is cooked,drain all the water out.Now put what ever portion size you want on your plate,and spread the onions over the top ,making sure to pour lots of butter on too.

I don't have any particular amounts of each ingredient ,I just put in what I think I can eat.You can add spices or salt and pepper if you like,but I don't.I like it just the way it is.The butter adds a lot of flavour.

Enjoy.


Forgot to mention.After the fish is cooked, make sure it has broken into small pieces,and is mixed throughout the potatoes.
