Smoking up a pork butt today while painting the living room. In the meantime, just had us some homemade buttermilk biscuits with sausage gravy. Added a splash of liquid smoke to the gravy for extra flavor. Biscuits n' Gravy may be my last meal request if I were on death row. ;)

I hope you didn't have the smoker actually in the living room with you... :wink:

Looks like a day of good eats! The pork turned out great but I'm with you on the biscuits and gravy, and I'm glad to see that your sausage gravy actually contains noticeable amounts of sausage!

Great looking eats there.

And if you're not comfortable having the grill inside, here is an alternative:

LOL that brings back memories. When I was 18 I bought Weber Smoky Joe. I lived in an apartment so I used to grill on my fire escape. One time I almost burned the building down using to much lighter fluid. learned a lesson that day charcoal is not all the same. :shock:

Many years ago when I lived in an apartment they expressly prohibited the use of any type of non-gas grills on balconies. Annoying but probably a good thing. Back in the day I probably would have burned the place down as well after a solid evening of drinking and getting home hungry at 3 AM. :mrgreen:

I guess that was the good thing about living in an urban area. The building owner probably never thought anyone would grill on the fire escape so there was no rule. I remember using A&P supermarket brand charcoal it kept going out so I loaded it with lighter fluid and when I lit it the flames shot up so high. I put the top on to smoother the fire the heat was so intense the enamel paint peeled off. I don't know if it is stupidity or dedication I continued to grill outside my window until I bought a home 8 years ago.

Awesome looking breakfast. Wondering how that gravy would be with smoked sausage and grilled biscuits. The pork shoulder photos below belong in the National Gallery!

You made my day, Steven! Thanks a lot for the kind words. Think I will do the biscuits and gravy on the grill next time. :)
