PostSubject: Christmas dinner   December 23rd 2013, 10:28 am

I'm firing up the smoker tomorrow. Doing a pork shoulder, a brisket and some sausage. Prime smoker weather too. Cool and crisp.

We do Christmas at the inlaws every year and their turkey and ham resembles an Incan mummy. Dry and dessicated. So I volunteered to provide the goods this year.

Plan to fire it up around 7am for an all day cook.

What are your plans?

And Merry Christmas and Happy Hanuka, Festivus, Kwanza and/or Just Another Wednesday to all of you misfits.

No way we can't beat that. I'm working tomorrow. I have the same amount of work to complete this week even with 1 less day plus covering other staff that are off. I need to retire so I can enjoy the holidaze!

My folks are coming to town tonight. We aren't the best of cooks. Fortunately my mom loves to cook. I love steaks etc but my wife is vegetarian. We'll slap something together as usual. sigh... Smile

And a big merry xmas to all!

Me, the Missus, Daughter and Grandson will be having a duck dinner here tomorrow and then myself and the Missus are having turkey dinner at my sisters on Christmas day. Ham dinner at the Mom-in-laws on the 27th and a seafood feast at sisters again New Years Eve. After that I probably won't eat for at least a month.

Smoked brisket would be an awesome addition though... hint, hint

Happy santa

I know we have a ham. But since my better half takes care of that I really don't know what's going with it. But now I want to smoke something   . Think I just may have to pick up some small ribs. They only take about 6 to 7 hours to smoke, so I could do that without killing the whole day.

Most Christmas, we do a nice Prime Rib, but we never put our order in at the butcher this year. We will end up with turkey, which I can eat every week and still enjoy.
A smoked brisket sounds good, but my smoker doesn't keep the heat in the colder weather. Next smoker will be wood fired instead of the electric one I bought at Cabelas a few years back.

I'm making the 20 minute journey to your place. What time do we eat? Smile

Merry Christmas, I'm liking this.

I'm clearly not going to be eating as well as you, Jason!  pale 

As for me, we are driving out to my Sister's new place that is located up in the boonies, errrrr, I mean way up Coos River.

I think we are having ham (and all the other stuff that goes with it.)

.

Merry Christmas, Guys!  santa

Christmas at my house for my wife's family. I will make it down to see my family likely 2 or 3 weeks after Christmas. Don't know what we are eating. Doesn't really matter to me because I will eat it regardless.... hehehe

Busy! Been putting a laminate floor in the back room. Got it finished yesterday morning before work. Put Kilz on the hallway wall Saturday after work, texture the next time morning and then helped Maggie paint it that night. Also after work Saturday I had to move the new refrigerator off my front porch. We bought a Maytag on Black Friday for $998 plus tax and they postponed delivery from the 14th til the 21. No big deal, I'm pretty easy going and it would still be here by Christmas. But then Maytag postponed until the 28th. Then I was irritated and Maggie was pissed. She went to Home Depot on Saturday and after 3 hour of calls and calculations they got approval from the higher ups to get us a Samsung of the same style (french door) that's usually $2700 that was on sale for $1999. They delivered the same day. The HD ppl said Maytag was blaming bad weather but they didn't believe it and said they didn't expect anything until end of January. So I have to give HUGE thumbs up to HD for stepping up and fixing an issue that wasn't their fault.

Also on Sunday my FIL was in the garage resanding the dining table to put a lighter stain on. We were also moving furniture into the back room from our spare bedroom and the garage. The house is jow set up for Christmas and my garage in entirely covered in a fine Lauer of sawdust from the sanding. Projects and plans that have been in the works for months all came together in 36 hours. EXHAUSTING!!!

All that's left is to buy and put the tin on the back porch I but and clean up the garage a day backyard. Another days jobs.......
