We are proudly flying the American flag on this 4th of July. This flag has very special meaning to me because it used to be my father’s flag. He would display it on all appropriate holidays. The actual flag has been replaced several times but the pole is at least a half-century old. This next shot is the Mad Meat Genius when he was only a child prodigy of all things meat. It feels good to still be able to wave the flag.
This 4th of July we had a non-traditional celebratory meal. We smoked a Snake River Corned Beef. This beautiful hunk of meat was smoked in hickory wood for 4 hours to create the most tender and flavorful pastrami ever. I cannot wait for sandwiches. I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July.
