After this week, I’m planning to not BBQ anymore until the first of September and so my friends have decided to load up. As a result I’ve decided to spread it over two days doing the short-cook-time items this morning and the big meat overnight tonight. This was a great opportunity to clean out the stuff in the freezer and here is a pile beginning to thaw. This is a little over half the total and I went shopping yesterday to buy the rest – I sure have a full frig (I have a separate one primarily for this). While this isn’t a lot for big time quer’s, it is for me: 4 briskets, 7 pork butts, 8 babyback slabs, a turkey breast, a couple of fatties and about 25 # of assorted chicken over the two days.
I fired the smoker up at 6am (first light), got the meat on at 7:15, and will report more tomorrow. I’m hoping to be done by 1 pm before it gets too hot.
After I got the meat on, I decided to fix myself a nice breakfast and still had just a little lamb remaining – just enough for an omelet. I sautéed some chopped onion, the lamb, some grape tomatoes that needed to be eaten. I removed them to a covered bowl while I cooked the eggs and when they were set, I added the stuffing plus some shredded cheese blend (couldn’t find the feta), folded it over, and topped with a dollop of tzatziki. Here it is before the cheese.
Ready to eat - it broke a little when I took it out of the pan.
Pretty good way to finish off the lamb.
It’s time to go check the smoker, so have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
