I loooove me some smoked brisket; so does the Hubster. When his brother invited us both to dinner at his house, we could turn down neither the great company or the delicious food.

You forgot your birthday? Seriously?” Then, realizing that I forgot it made me feel old. Boo. The Hubster andContinue Reading
