Default Camping & Cooking. A boys weekend!

We abandonded my wife on Thursday. The boys and I and a neighborhood kid took off in a rented Motor Home and headed 100 miles up in the hills to a local "improved" campground by Roosevelt Lake. I want to take a minute to thank all who sent thoughts and prayers my wife's way after her cycle wreck. They operated to reconstruct her crushed wrist on Wednesday, and will do the same for the foot next Wednesday. She is doing very well, and it could have been a lot worse! Her Mom was available to care for her while we were gone.

Thursday night's dinner was stuffed burgers. Seasoned the ground beef with my own rub, and some "Famous Dave's Steak and Burger Seasoning". I formed 1/2 lb patties, covered one with onion, japs & sharp cheddar, then put another patty over the first and made a slightly better than 1 pound burger...6 of them! Used my Craig's List 20 buck score Weber 22.5 kettle and smoked them for about 45 minutes indirect w/hickory. Mmmm good!

Friday's lunch of ABT's and Fatties did not happen because I forgot to take pictures, but for something that did not happen they were pretty good!

Friday's dinner was Flat Iron Steaks and Ranch Style Beans! Nuff said there; That meal is hard to beat!

Saturday lunch didn't happen either, but it would have been smoked brats if I could have found the camera.

Enjoy the Pron, and thanks for stopping by...

Those burgers look fantastic, so do the steks and beens.
Hope you and the boys had a good time.

Also good to hear the wife is recovering. Let her know we send our best.

Man, looks like a blast! Good food and a lake nearby. Did all of you guys sleep in the camper? I'm meeting my brother and father in Maine in a couple months and can't wait for some peace like that.

That is my idea of "roughing it". Nice camper and great looking food.

Rosy is a beautiful lake, going over 4 Peaks and dropping down on the nw side of the lake is awesome. I caught my first monster catfish there as a boy. Nice lookin food, and I'm sorry to hear about the better-half, she is in my prayers. John

Great job, Bo! Camping is one of those things I really miss. Gotta get back to it.
