The Hampton Smoker

What's up wtih what's going down? Does a tree falling on the ocean with no one around make a sound? Barbecue, BBQ, Bar-b-que. It's all in how you sell it.

I Have Found a Way: in the smoke of morning

My friends, The Wife and I got out of town for a day and we spent the time eating and cooking. We took a break to walk on the beach in the pre-rain fog and mist, letting the big, choppy waves break on our bare feet, feeling the sand pull away beneath us.

I woke up at 6 on Saturday morning and lit a nice fire of Cherry wood and stood in the smoke watching it burn down to coals and waiting for the pit to heat up. We threw on 2 small briskets, 2 racks of babyback ribs and some sausage fatties. At the end of the night, I threw on some burgers made of sirloin and chuck and grilled some asparagus that we served with a white wine, butter and shallot sauce. The cold sides were potato salad and garlic marinated grape tomatoes.

Here're some sights of the foodfest.

Today's Songs Of The Day: Twofer

The Music Explosion: Little Bit O' Soul
T. Bone Singleton: Hello, Hello

The Music Explosion will appeal to any power pop, or old school rock and roll fans out there. If there are any. T. Bone Singleton is an old-school, Louisiana Swamp Boogie Bluesman, so that should appeal to fans of old-school, Louisiana Swamp Boogie Bluesmen out there, if there are any.

If I continue to get days off, I think there should be one or two updates a week from now on. Viva la blog.

In The Pines: Memories of

I miss the smell of the salt air mixed with oak and cedar, pine and earth. The sound of the thousands of leaves in the wind, applauding the changing seasons. When I stand still long enough, it feels like time halts, though colors change and the light shifts, perceptibly.

Visiting a familiar place, somewhere that has been the landscape of a large portion of your life, enables you to look into the deep rings of experience encircling memories. Over time, you see the gradual changes to the landmarks that we use to chart our path which have helped shape and define what we ultimately become. Much of this occurs when we aren't looking, of course, and is only realized later, when things start to erode, or decay and fade. When you reach back to grasp them, they are already too far gone.
