Yesterday was a great day to sit inside and watch the rains come down. After days of watching the rains miss us here in northeastern Brazoria County, they came down with a vengeance yesterday afternoon. We still have water standing in all of the low spots around the yard though the ditches have drained...The weather prognosticators are predicting more for today. At least all the rain keeps the temperatures down. Or it does till the sun comes back out to stay, then its just like living in a sauna.
I was really lucky to have made the decision to start my brisket on the smoker on Sunday. By the time the kids arrived yesterday afternoon, the barbecue was done to a turn. Nothing like a long slow cooking to make a briskets dissolve in your mouth with just the right amount of smoke flavoring. So even though the weather didn't cooperate, the traditional start of summer barbecue came off fine...
Well I am running late and I spent some time this morning catching up with some of the folks on my blogroll so I have to hit the road...Later.
Tuesday, June nineteenth - Warm and muggy, tropical air, no cooling rains... a gulf coast morning coffee muses.
