Post Memorial Day Malaise

May 31 2005 - 4:51 PM

Another Memorial Day goes by without any solid BBQ. Plenty of sausages, hamburgers, hot dogs, corn, etc… but no smokey goodness. For a city boy with a patio the sizeĀ brincolin of a large freezer the lack of smoked, pulled meats from any backyard foray is a marked absence. But there is hope… maybe I can smoke some meats on my miniscule patio.

I was going through my TIVO’d episodes of “Good Eats” and came to the one with the plant pot used as an earthen smoker… I’m intrigued. I’ve spent the day planning my route home to purchase the necessary bits.. plant pot, some hardwood, an electric hot plate… with any luck I won’t burn the place down.
