This morning, while all of Texas was still sleeping (well . . all of Texas that lives at my house!), I was up sticking a brisket in the smoker so it would be tender and juicy by dinner time tonight . . and it was!
Still haven’t found my fruit wood so yesterday I picked a dead twig off a mesquite tree in the yard. Vince said I wasn’t using enough but dang it . . I don’t like to use mesquite for my wood . . but you already know that.
Along with the brisket, we had pinto beans and potatoes with onions. The pinto beans were leftovers. The potatoes were last minute because I had planned to bake two potatoes but couldn’t find the aluminum foil . . which I found as soon as I chopped up some potatoes.
Anyway, dinner was great! Vince and I just came in from taking a walk along the lake. We didn’t go out on it but just walked down the street. We had never been all the way to the end of the street but now we have!
