We are having some of the most gorgeous weather. Not a cloud in sight, but it is COLD! The morning started with a good layer of frost and then as the sun came out, it warmed up to a balmy 41*.
Since I didn’t get to my to-do list when my December vacation took a turn for the worse, I decided I would spend a little time in the yard on my MLK Monday off. I spent the day smoking two (yes 2!) pork shoulders. My vertical drum smoker took a little more baby sitting than in the prime of summer since we started in the dark when it was 31*.
I mostly smoked these to babies to stock my freezer, but of course I had to enjoy some right off the grill. There is nothing better than fresh off the grill, melt in your mouth, pork shoulder. I can easily be gluttonous standing in the kitchen and eat most of it right there. But tonight, I made mini pulled pork sliders. I love sliders, it’s built in portion control.
yummmm… this week’s off to a good start. Hope you have a good week (it just might not be as yummy)
