My 89 year old grandmother fell and broke her femur at a family get-together (playing Cornhole of all things :? ) and had a hip replacement due to the break back in October. After months of hospitals and rehab, she is finally home and managing to take care of herself (for the most part). I like to keep her freezer stocked with meat she can easily thaw and eat or else she would just live on cereal. On Saturday I smoked a brisket, a pork butt, 1.5 racks of spare ribs, spare rib trimmings, grilled some pork chops and chicken breasts along with a crockpot full of pinto beans. I didn't get pictures of everything, but here are a few I did manage to snap. I spent a few hours Sunday getting everything packaged up and vacuum sealed in meal portions her. Anyhow, here were some pics of the cook.

Sorry to hear about your grandmother's misfortune, tex, but it's good to hear that she's out of the hospital. She's lucky to have a grandson like you.

"Lucky" is almost too small a word to cover it, too. That's a lot of meat, so it sure looks like she'll be eating well for a while to come. :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Ribs were for me, about half of the brisket and half of the pork butt were for me. I grilled up some chops and chicken breasts for her as well. Once vac sealed, it lasts in the freezer for quite a while. :)
