Whew!!!!

Did my last job of the season yesterday and it was a SOAKER!!!!! Rained all during set-up Friday afternoon then, thankfully, it stopped between 6 pm and 6 am so I did not have any trouble Friday night. It started at 6 am Saturday and rained all through my 3:00 pm serve time!!! Then, thankfully again, it stopped at 5:00 so I could load up and go home! The gig was a huge success. 120 adults and 32 kids. Food was brisket, pulled pork, salmon, redskins w/ onions, green beans, and bacon, baked beans and tossed salad. Good season. I did fewer jobs than last year, but that was by choice. I have 5 regular repeating jobs (for the past 4 seasons) and am certain I will get 5 new ones from referrals next year. Salmon goes over like GANGBUSTERS ( 3-farm raised fillets on a foil cakepan with Texas BBQ Rub liberally applied and smoked at 220 for appx 1 hour until firm) as does the brisket. Alot of work and worry go into it and I am glad to be free for a while to cook for "fun!" WM

I didn't take ONE photo this summer! I guess I am too busy cooking and the like! Has the thrill worn off?

Uhhh..excuse me.. Am I to assume that there was in fact no cooking over the summer as we all know no pics = ...well you know the rest.

Did you do any prep to the salmon other than rub and smoke ?

No prep. Take out of the package. Lay flat on pan. Sprinkle both sides with rub. Smoke. I guess you could marinade in teriyaki or soy sauce first.
