So what that is like 34 degress outside.  So what if I am going to have to get out my snow pants for the 9:00 AM tee time tommorow.  It's Friday and beer and cookouts await.  What does your weekend have in store.

I cheaped out and bought a Big Steel Keg instead of a ceramic Kamodo/BigGreenEgg.

But am picking up a brisket for memorial day (trimming the cap, but I like some of the cap intact to autobaste), salt/pepper/garlic/MSG rub.

If I am feeling better and the weather holds up, will day trip out to Dewey Beach, DE Sunday, finishing off at the Dogfishhead Tavern in Rehoboth.  Probably will not be getting the 120 Minute IPA though..

This one is a Vision Kamado and not a Green Egg (although very similar). This one is a solid Kamado and priced really well at Costco! Man, being from Texas and having lived in Ann Arbor I used to grill with gas and charcoal. Once I got one of these, NEVER AGAIN. I've done a picnic,  pork shoulder, brisket, steaks, beer can chicken, vegetables and it all comes out incredible. Make room for one of these you won't regret it. Happy grilling friend.

I shaved my beard into a moustache yesterday and wore it to work.  Mostly because my boss is away for Memorial weekend already, and my job title is not 80's Porn Star.  It was the most fantastic day of work ever.  I just squinted my eyes and nodded my head at everyone who walked by.

True.  Luckily, I do not get the NHL playoffs here so I have no way of tainting the Red Wings run.  I just read the recaps on the blog.

Side note, how big of a fuck up is Bettman that playoff hockey, the only thing that comes close to rivaling the passion of college football, is not broadcast nationally?  He needs to go away.

Bought the supplies for tacos and caribou lou out of cups made of pineapples at the pool a few days ago, and now that looks like a dumb decision. OTOH tacos and liquor are rarely a bad combination, and I've always wanted to drink something out of a pineapple.

If anyone (everyone) is interested TomVH just put up an article over at ESPN where he talks with Naughty by Nature about Jabrill. Interesting stuff.

Parents are making the trip down from MI, looking forward to spending sometime with them.  Doing my first psuedo seafood boil on Monday (I have an infared deep fryer). 

Also, thinking about picking up some Gator meat and trying that out, any tips on how to prepare it MgoChefs?
