Well I had to break down and fix a small batch of chili yesterday.
It wasn't done on the grill or the smoker, but it was still good just the same.
My son called and said he was going to smoke some chicken breast. I said good luck with that because it was too cold for this old hillbilly to be outside. I haven't heard how that turned out yet.
It was his first attempt with a Brinkman water smoker. I'm sure we'll have to make a few modifications to it from what I've heard about them. But at least he's trying to follow in his old dads footsteps.
It may be a good year after all...
