Here's a shot of me carving the pig at the piano nephew's
And another of the lead guitarist (my wife's cousin) frying
fish on a camping trip.
I haven't been to a "Do" where the piggy was that big! Impressive.
Smoked makes good eats.
The eggy breakfast looks might fine.
We ate well on our camping trips. We all got together, plus a bunch
of others, last May at a state park. Here's an excerpt for the post
about that. Somehow I neglected to take photos.
It was my nephew's 50th B-day celebration. We all went to a state park
campground. I had this giant cryovac thing of pork spare ribs. I bought
it frozen over a week ago, and it thawed slowly in my fridge. The grill thing
was one of those ones with a cast iron grate, and right on the ground; it was
essentially a fire ring, but rectangular. It was not the sort of thing you cook
two big racks of ribs on. Folks there were dubious, both that it could be
done at all, and if I would have the lasting power to accomplish it, both
because my typical go-to-sleep time is so early, and because I was drinking
The fire was hot, and there were flames fueled by the fat from the ribs, but I
kept at it, flipping them with a fork, and sometimes dousing the fire of
charcoal and seasoned oak with water, but by damned I didn't make it work
acceptably. They weren't fall-off-the-bone tender by any stretch, and there
was a bit of burndness, but not much.
