Sob Story Ahead
I bought a nice nine-pound brisket Saturday (at 88 cents a pound-woot!) and 150 lbs of smokin' wood at Albertson's, cuz I was out. I fired up some of the mesquite to cook burgers that night (OK, so I'm nuts) and the stuff just sat there and sizzled instead of burned. Wet, wet, wet... Instead of driving across town to a sporting goods store to get wood that has been sitting inside I went to the local place where it sits out. Duuuuh. I dried it in the sun all day yesterday, but now my brisket is not to be schmoked until NEXT weekend. <cry>
I did do some lovely rib eyes on the grill side last night, though (with mushrooms). Does that count?
