    Actually I meant that we don't seem to do BBQ around here unless it is below freezing. :)

    There is a backstory to this about a hangar BBQ...

    Well the smoker has been going for a couple hours now, and the rest of the food is starting to filter in. It's a little after 9:00 a.m. PDT and the smoker cook has already started in to the Modelos. I suspect a drunken orgy by 3:00 p.m.

    When the smoker has to start at zero dark thirty to get pork butts finished by 3pm I always figure it's 5 o'clock somewhere. That's the cook's prerogative, isn't it?

    That's why Bloody Marys and bourbon laced coffe were invented.

    Well here we are, carne asada ready for grilling. I'm thinking it's going on the grill before two.

    Well, have fun.

    FYI, of course carnitas is barbeque. It just is neither Carolina nor Texas.

    The way some southerners talk about barbeque, you would think they invented it. They didn't.

    You laugh, but I spend a lot of time in Southeast Asia where a meeting with government officials consists of a drinking event that starts about noon local time and lasts until about three or four, at some restaurant where you have a private table and staff to serve you beer and food, which are brought out continuously during the whole time.

    Hint - you don't get fat on fish, shrimp, squid, snails and veggies, no matter how much you eat. And their beer is all rice brewed, minimal calories, maximum strength.

    Just don't drink that 333 crap. I think they wash their dishes in that. Well, it tastes that way anyway.

    Well guess what. I did an 86 mile bike ride today. Powered by leftover carne asada and carnitas. Just made a couple foil packs I could stuff in to my jersey.

    Well I also brought back a couple grilled tamales. They smell really good but I won't eat them myself.

    No, I'm fine with beef and pork. It's the other stuff that I can't eat anyway that causes extra boost if I do.

    Beans are completely out. It isn't just about farting, it's about being doubled over in pain due to an inability to digest them.
