What to Cook?

Ok, DD, you made me think of this.  Since I really don't like turkey,,,i started doing something different years ago.  The first time was doing a big brisket on my electric smoker,,,YUMMMM.  Mouth watering melt in your mouth good to the last drop, brisket.  lol.  Had an aunt and uncle here that year, and they were going back and buying a Mr Smoker, (electric) too.  The reason I keep mentioning electric, is,,,, you put your whatever on, plug it in, leave it til it's done.  No tending.  You put things in the water pan for the flavors, like Italian dressing for poultry, bar-b-q sauce for beef,,,etc.  You add soaked wood chips on the little cover over the burner, I always used mesquite.  This was Thanksgiving, way back.  Over the years, I cooked those, or turkeys, and when we used to have them, capons.  Now, a smoked turkey is GREAT.  And, DD, it doesn't taste like chicken,,,lololol,,, it tastes like ham.  Sorta.

Then a few years ago, I started cooking my famous roast.  I cook them waterless, on top of my stove, in their own juices, with a lot of seasonings.  After the meat gets done, I put it into a huge roast pan, add all the veges, put in the oven til they get done.  The cheapest cut is the best, has all the marbling to cook out.  My brother does them now.  The taste is totally different.

Now, i'm starving... lol.

No freezing stuff here yet, but the forecast is for later today thru tomorrow.  Keep wondering if my son will be able to get back from Vegas tomorrow. 

Ok that's it for today, yall tc, and
