I had to take a vacation day today because it is my duty to stand outside all day long today and smoke meat for my family Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas day dinner. As I am typing this, there is a ham, 5lb chunk of bologna, pork loins and mushrooms all on my grill being smoked. Every year the meat changes but the tradition is always the same as far as my ass being outside on usually a cold day. Today it has been around 30-35 degrees so that is pretty pleasant. Last year it was 20 and there was about 4 inches of snow on the ground.
Well gotta get back out there...I just wanted to take a moment to warm up and wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
