a break for something more important---

So we should have some news later this week on a minor code release with some helpful features in it. Can't say more until it comes out, but watch my blog this week.

In the meantime....  I have always been the grill-master at our camps with friends and family. My boys and I camp about 25-30 times a year. As much as I enjoy grilling, I was woefully behind in my smoking/BBQ skills. The difference being that grilling is cooking fast over high heat (think burgers, steak, and most seafood), and real BBQ involves smoke and slow-cooking over hours. Smoking is better for ribs, chicken, brisket and tri-tip. So I went to a real BBQ day-long class, got a small beginner's smoker, and now I'm smoking meat a lot more. Here's a pic of my last tri-tip in the smoker. Homemade rub and sauce cost just pennies compared to store-bought, and the meat is cheap at Costco. This may have been the best tri-tip I've ever made. Great smoke ring and flavor in only 1.5 hours. I was trying to tie this into the ZFSSA, but I just can't, so I stopped caring and now just showing off my new BBQ skills. Ha ha. Enjoy.
