This was our 3rd annual 4th of July weekend celebrating this way.

My family has a farm up in Wisconsin, for the past 3 years for the 4th of July weekend me and a few of my closest friends go up for the long weekend.

We eat really good food, play with fireworks, shoot guns, and drink beer (after the guns get put away). We always have a good time.

I pretty much do all the grilling all weekend.

There is a local German Butcher shop that has really good meat and good prices.

We bought some burgers, steaks, and brats.

The burgers were made using Rub Co. Original mixed in the meat. They were great! - sorry, no pics.

The steaks were great too! Every one got to pic their favorite cut and seasoning, I went with a fillet with a little montreal steak seasoning. I got to use my brand new super fast and most accurate BLACK thermapen. - sorry no pics.

But the surprise star of the weekend were the brats. BEST Brat I ever had!!! The butcher shop called it a beer brat. I grilled them and served with onions that were steamed in beer on the grill. The smell from the grill was phenomenal. The pic I took or the brats on the grill didnt come out, But I did get a plated shot, with homemade fries (with liberal amounts of Dillo Dust).


I also had to take a picture of the scenery.


I hope everyone had a good 4th of July weekend!
