It wasn't the big blowout I wanted for the end of summer, just a chicken and some brisket that wife made in a slow cooker (good, but no comparison to a smoked 6-pounder). It was a beautiful day however, made better by great weather and homemade blueberry-vodka spiked frozen lemonade. Also, I spent two hours on Saturday cleaning out the 620 gas grill. Many parts are beyond ever getting really clean, but for the first time I paid close attention to the burner tubes. No more orange flames or clogged holes, though I was surprised it seemed to take longer to get up to temperature the first time on. Not so the second time. Most importantly, I remembered to turn off the gas and unhook the line *first*.
Self portrait - getting my art on.
Lime butter for the corn, nicely warmed on the side burner, which I have come to love.
C'mon - what are summer cookouts without corn?
My last two Saturday's in September are wide open. Smoked brisket will be had. I think I have to try our some pork shoulder too. I'm much more amenable to long BBQ days when it's not in the 80's or 90's.
