We have had such great weather lately that I decided on Saturday to plant some bulbs. See, last year when we moved in, I bought a bunch of tulip and daffodil bulbs from Home Depot in one of our many trips there. But I procrastinated, and by the time I got around to planting them, we had cold temps and the ground was frozen. So I put my bag of bulbs away to be pulled out this year. So I went to the broom closet and pulled out my bag from last year, and finally found the source of the fruit fly infestation I have been fighting for weeks. The bag of bulbs was a mushy mess of black and buzzing fruit flies. So much for that idea….
So I went off to get more. Came home with a good selection:
I also decided it was a good weekend to fire up the smoker and make a brisket thats been taking up room in my freezer. This was part of the 1/4 a cow we purchased last fall and man its good meat!
The above photo is after about 4 hours on the smoker. I let it go for about 6 hours, and then wrapped it in foil and stuck it in the oven at about 215 for a couple more hours. Then put it in the fridge to reheat.
