My husband loves to grill and use the smoker. We just gave away a charcoal grill, so we are now down to four, a smoker, an upright smoker, a gas grill and a charcoal grill. I find it interesting that men LOVE to cook outdoors, but put them inside, and they aren't nearly as excited. Must have something to do with being outdoors. Oh, and the beer consumed while cooking. Think that's a factor??
So the hubs is hard at it with a beef brisket. It's his first time with this - his real specialty is ribs, but we are doing those next Sunday for Father's Day. He has carefully prepared the brisket with a dry rub that he put together from a combination of recipes, a basting sauce with Guinness extra stout and has also made a spicy mustard based dipping sauce for later. Oh, did I mention the dipping sauce also contains beer? Yum-O!
