Sounds like you have a good day planned out, Cactus. A simpler menu that'll allow you to have more time with the family.
I put the ribs on around 7:30 this morning so we can eat by early afternoon. After Mrs. Chicken leaves for work I'm heading to the driving range.
Fun day but cook not as planned - Local multi-ethnic grocery where we buy most of produce has choice beef tenderloins on sale for $5.99 lb. - I'd planned to go get one. Got a nice 5 lb.'r. Friend that was coming for dinner was not up for hot dogs. Ended up slicing 2/3 of the roast into fillets and vac packed the other 1/3 for another time. Bought deli potato and macaroni salad and precut cole slaw - made a vinegar & olive oil based dressing. At least I got my store bought apple pie for dessert (with a nice slice of Wisconsin sharp cheddar melted over).
Tenderloin is really nice - going back tomorrow for another - I might even get two!
Hot dogs, chips, and Bush's Beans will be tomorrow's dinner.
Cooked today on an old CharBroil 26 3/4" Magnum that I was cleaning up and seasoning the cooking grate for a niece. Just added some fresh charcoal to the scrap charcoal, that I had cleaned out of my other Webers. Haven't used this grill in 7 or 8 years. Stored my Weber charcoal holders, some extra cooking grates, and grill brush in it. She knew it was her's if she ever got it off my deck. Her brother is coming on Saturday to pick it up.
