Saturday was a beautiful day for the The City Beer Hall’s annual Bacon Fest. Perfect for sitting on the patio, catching up with friends, enjoying some cocktails, eating some pig and cooling down with some Nine Pin Cider. Let’s take a look at the food porn.
A shot from this weekend’s pork butt, after an overnight of brining and a good rub down. I hope you now have this song stuck in your head the rest of the day.
A little New England Distilling mojito for Elise while she was sunbathing and reading a book yesterday. Me? I wasted away the entire day sitting on the couch recovering from Saturday’s fairly successful first BBQ with the $20 Weber turned 5AM bottle share. No pics as I was busy as hell cooking but here’s the grill menu for the day:
So yesterday my big shipment from Weber Grills came in and I pretty much immediately got to work tearing the grill apart and putting some elbow grease into making it look like new again. The previous owners didn’t take much care of it, but luckily after scrubbing away all of the filth it’s about 99% rust-free. I’m totally happy with that for $20.
I’ll be upgrading the found-on-the-side-of-the-street $20 Weber grill from Silver to Gold, while replacing some of the old nasty rusted out grates and replacing some missing pieces to the ash catcher. Before and after pics to come!
