Sometimes you get lucky as a photographer. You stop on the side of the road, or maybe just look out the window and you find something fascinating to photograph.
Sometimes you are even at the grocery store. I mean really, where can you photograph an entire chicken wrapped in beautiful blue plastic with a $13.84 price tag attached. There was not ONE OTHER whole chicken in the store except these. That pretty much put the kibosh on my smoking idea for the day. Do people really BUY these??
I kept seeking out the perfect example of barbecue, when what to my wide open eyes should appear but a brisket. Not just ANY brisket, but a PRIME BEEF brisket and only HALF SIZED. In other words, I got an exceptional piece of beef that will only feed eight instead of eighteen.
That adventure is ongoing, even at 4:30 in the morning, so I'll finish the story tomorrow when I know for sure WHO will actually get to eat it. Me or these guys!!
It's pure luck when you look outside your window and see one of these silent visitors. Although they do seem to wander through more often during the day THIS year, they are usually pretty elusive. Isn't he a beauty?
Time to go check my brisket. This is going to be an epic event since it's 36 degrees outside for the next two hours. I need to find a blanket to keep the smoker warm. It's going to take around 12 hours to cook this baby, and of course all babies need to be babysat. Guess you know what I'll be doing today!!
