It is strange to be buying tickets for concerts again, more so when the date is over a year away.

OTOH, I now have tickets to see one of my "bucket list" bands...

Lorge is not ready for Monday. I am with you, buddy.

Now I am going to watch some @vindiesel@twitter.com movies with my wife.

It has been a good day.

Since I used @bombshellbeer@twitter.com Lady in Red for the beer can chicken, I decided to pair is with one of my last cans of Triple Vixen. And now I am full of beer, chicken, potato salad, and slaw.

And here is the pork roast, ready to go into the fridge until tomorrow when we take it to Mom’s House.

Ok! Here we are three hours later! Look at that roast! Now into foil and back on the grill for two hours!

Not shown: beer can chicken now also on the grill. Any recipe that starts with “drink half a can of beer” can’t go wrong!

Unless I need to, I will not open the mail chamber for the next three hours and will only be adding wood to the burn chamber.

I’ve got a chicken (not one of the flock) to put in for the last two hours. That is dinner tonight.

It is now under smoke, with a probe thermometer to make sure all is well.

I am using Apple wood chunks, mostly since Lowes was out of hickory. I use the 3-2-1 method - 3 hours under heavy smoke, 2 hours wrapped, and an hour for finishing if I am using a wet sauce or glaze.

This is a 7-ish pound shoulder with the most basic of dry rubs : one part each kosher salt, paprika, and ground black pepper.

This is just after the run down and before the hour or so rest.

Mother’s Day 

Since we are all vaccinated in the family, we are having the first small gathering tomorrow since the 2019 Holidays.

I am smoking a pork shoulder for it.

The patient is recovering and demanding mealworms. Yes, I delivered.
