Christmas Eve went great, with the ribs&sauce coming out tender and tasty! All were in good spirits and left before I had to kick them out!
Christmas Day, I had committed to smoke a 10lb prime rib for dinner. I have done many things in a smoker, but never the "King of Meats"! Came out tender and tasty-not overdone, and not too smoky. Two days in a row of cooking as intensely as I did leaves me somewhat drained. No more special meals 'til New Years' Eve!
The gifts were well recieved by all. I wish the kids would stop giving me stuff, as they know they have plenty of other spots I'd like to see them spend it!
It was good to see my son in from K.C. as it has been a year since we were out there. He is putting a tutorial on my computer so I may someday show pictures of the events and things I describe so poorly in my words alone. Hope everyone had a wonderful time, and hope the New Year is even brighter for all!
