Who is doing the cooking?

 

Got up @ 0515: "First, you start a fahr..."

 

Will add a single normal sized rack of porkers around 1300.

 

Been on for around 1 hour (0722 as I tap this out), temp holding steady.

 

As usual, Major was going bonkers about the fire & doing laps around Earl.f5660d0629c54ef1f07fffcfb96e5389.jpga9388bea1502ffcf8370e168333e9900.jpgcf37e4a795a4b391bd291d1170ec22d9.jpge62df206c0833ed5daa9bd806b59d9dc.jpg7d6752f6e9cb92c514a08957cef722c5.jpg3c89567587b9bda2d72953f2e4f82994.jpg

I rolled up a boudin and cream cheese stuffed pork loin last night and wrapped it all in bacon. 

Hitting the smoke around noon.

Napped for 1 hour, came outside just now to this - not doing too badly.

Added 2 pieces of Oak, rolled up some new hot coals & stoked Earl again (still had a nice base in there but I didn't want to lose too much momentum).ba05dbfd9beaa6930783754908b0102f.jpg

Is that a threat or a mere statement of fact?

Wife is cooking because I bought her a new deep dish pie pan this past week on vacation.  Making some sort of beef tenderloin/ shrooms/ tomatoes savory pie.

and copious amounts of New Mexico beer ( i.e. La Cumbre Slice of Hefen and DeLaVega Pecan, among others.)

Having video chat with my boys later today.  'Twill be a great day!

My takeaway here is you are trusting a woman with a Ribeye.

Not really, but my daughter wants to make me a steak on Father’s Day.

Breffiss. Challah French toast, bacon, eggs, black coffee. Just out of view: plate with more bacon (the “strategic bacon reserve” only lasted about 30 minutes.)

In the fridge for dinner: two prime filets for steak au poivre.

Happy Father’s Day to all you Surly bastards living the dad life. My kid is seven, and it’s cliché to say being her dad is the greatest calling of my life. Cliché, but true.

Making me hungry already boys. Damn. I did ribs and chicken yesterday for my dad and father-in-law. Was too busy pounding beers and BBQ to take pics. Tonight, there’s a nice steak place downtown that will be serving me.

Happy Fathers Day!

Ribs have about 2 more hours and the strong pour bourbons are catching up to me, I either need to take a nap, pound some water or double down on the Basil Hayden

Wife bought 2 of these thinking they wouldn't be 2.5lb each. I said we are saving the other one and cooking it later. First father's day very excited about this steak. Will post money shot.

Breakfast was french toast with bacon and blueberry/strawberry.

My folks are in ill health at the moment - mom is in chemo (doing okay today, had a rough day yesterday), dad is recovering from hip surgery (doing well, but still needing some help).  And of course, with COVID, we've been limiting contact.

So, I - just me, not the grandkids - picked up some good tacos (barbacoa, lengua, tripas), and brought them over so we could  have a father's day lunch together.  Just the three of us, had a nice visit (kept my distance best I could, then helped the old man take a walk up and down the block for therapy).  It was a good visit, definitely made their day.

As for MY father's day?  I dunno.  I'm working, haven't decided on dinner.  A steak sounds nice.  I'd have to cook it myself, but that's not hard.  Picking up some bbq from a black-owned business (Slab bbq) sounds nice.  But I'm actually leaning towards a Savage from Conan's -- fuck yes, add the jalapenos and anchovies.  A couple of cold Firemans with a couple of those slices, and I'd be a happy man.  But I haven't fully decided yet.....

Yes.  Many different beers and my 21 year old son son celebrated his new legal status( with regard to alcohol) by getting me a bottle of Garrison Bros.

 

He is now my favorite son...LOlz.

My 13-year-old daughter is making prime ribeyes, Hasselback potatoes, and roasted Romanesco. She’s taking total control over the kitchen and I’m sitting back in awe drinking wine and not doing shit. 

A year ago my marriage had just been blown apart, and now I’m filled with joy and happiness. Fatherhood is a journey. Enjoy today, fellow dads, no matter where you are on the path.

Went with the pizza.  Picking it up in a few.  Got a medium Savage, all the fucking way, all to myself.  It'll be breakfast tomorrow, too.

A tip of the hat to my fellow dads celebrating with your sundry victuals

 

Had some brisket breakfast tacos for dinner, made ‘em myself (restaurant brisket). Now listening to my wife read to my pre-school daughter. Life is good

Any day with lengua, barbacoa, tripas, and a Savage can't be a bad day.  Pretty sure it's a law.

Beef plate ribs, pimento cheese stuffed and bacon wrapped jalapenos, and smoked elotes corn on the cob. Blackberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream for dessert.

Got an air fryer for Father's Day.  Ribs are on the smoker, but my kids were excited to watch me use it.  Fuck me, I have no idea.  So I Google and look around the fridge and I find that my wife has randomly purchased falafel from the local farmer's market.  What the hell, roll some balls, fry em up and put them in a wrap.

Surprisingly crispy and actually tastes fried.  Interesting cooker.  Will experiment further.

I'd give my left ovarie for a Conan's right about now.

Wife made some strawberry cobbler, but I was too damn full to even bother.

Funny story...they were out of large deep dish crusts.

Still, that pie was for me only, so plenty left for breakfast tomorrow. Cold Conans for breakfast is one of the holy things in life.
