Default 4am Panic

I spent a fair amount of time yesterday trimming up a 25 pound inside round.
Sliced it and got it marinating for jerky.
Had an awsome dinner, came back to the office for a little bit, and fell asleep at my desk.
Woke up about 9:30 and thought Crap! I need to get that jerky in.
I got up, and went with the meat out to the smoker and loaded it up.
Went to bed.
About four this morning, a little voice inside says: Hey stupid did you turn down the temp on the smoker for jerky or did you leave it at *225?

Holy chit!!! My heart began to race as I envisioned little smoldering strips of beef helplessly curled up on the racks.

I quickly get dressed and run out to the smoker.

Major sigh of relief as I see that yes I did set the temp right.

Somedays I think BBQ will be the death of me yet.

Hmmmm ..... you mean I wasn't supposed to eat those things? They taste ok but I hate it when they get rolled around the rack.

Glad you did good! Hope you didn't age too much .... this time.

That is how I feel when I have to go back to find out if I locked the office door. It has always been locked, BTW.

Done that more times than I care to. Just because you know that you're paranoid doesn't meant that there aren't people out to get you.
