A Different, Smokier, Tastier Direction

So to anyone that still reads this thing, it is obvious that I do not post much. Frankly I dont have the passion to post regularly and often do not have the time either.

There is however one thing I do still tend to get excited enough to share with other people, BBQ.

Last fall I got me a Weber Smoky Mountain smoker and I have to say it is probably one of the best purchases I have ever made. Since my purchase, I have done several pork butts, a few racks of pork ribs, a turkey (my only failure so far) and two briskets.

Tonight I will be starting another pork butt, this one is the biggest I have ever done and I will document it here. Also in the plan for the next few weeks/months are smoked chicken drumsticks, a smoked leg of lamb, a bacon explosion roll, smoked salmon fillets and more. Since I really enjoy both making and showing off these kinds of things, I will start doing so here.

I will not be removing any of my older posts but I may be changing the title and/or the URL of this blog. I also think that I will find that this helps me want to post more often about shooting related stuff as well.

So as I said, tonight I will be starting a pork butt, this one is huge, just under 12lbs. I was able to get it on sale a while back and it came out of the freezer yesterday to thaw.

I'll go start the grill

Someone else bring some beer.


I am just imagining them wrapped in bacon and slow cooked over some apple wood.

FBI Makes a dynamic entry into a house with a chainsaw.

So, yet another raid on the wrong house. Yet another family terrorized. Only this one is different:
“I just happened to glance over and saw this huge chainsaw ripping down the side of my door,” she explains. “And I was freaking out. I didn’t know what was going on.” Within moments, the chainsaw had cut through most of her door, and someone on the FBI’s arrest team kicked the rest of it in.
Ya, that is right... They cut out the center of her door with a chainsaw!!!

Apparently someone thought that the best way to make a dynamic entry was to rev a chainsaw for a minute or so while they cut through the door.

Now I don't know a whole lot about door construction or chainsaw use but I have used a chainsaw a few times in my life. they are loud and they take a bit of time to cut through things.

Also, I have watched my fair share of horror films and I know that chainsaws through doors always end very badly for the people inside... I can tell you this much, I would have had an immediate fear that my life and the lives of my family were in danger and would have felt totally justified at shooting straight through the door at the person attacking my house and family with a chainsaw.

Only a few weeks before my last post, I had just started a new job with a major IT company. I am happy to report that I am still at that job, still very happy with that job and still (amazingly) considered a new guy!!! The job has been very demanding, that is why I have not posted in a while. I aim to fix that. I will be posting the rest of the Lucky Gunner Blogger Shoot Photos here soon. I promise! Oh and apparently blogger has a new way of embedding photos, so the new posts will be different looking than the old ones.
