    Got me some flatiron, picanha, some oyster steaks... a bunch of kielbasa for sausage on-a-bun, ground chorizo to crisp up in a pan with brussels sprouts and sherry vinegar... and finishing it all with rendered pork lardo butter to finish the meat -- and servin' it up with chimichurri sauce and dirty-ketchup.

    This is gonna be good!!!!

    What are y'all killin' and grillin'?

    Sounds like a plan... lol...

    Grilling/smoking a boston butt for a while before throwing it into a crock pot with chopped onions and garlic to finish it for a few hours. It'll fall apart, then I'll mix it with Sweet Baby Ray's Original BBQ sauce and some Cajun seasoning for some heat with the sweet. Serve it up with pickles and buns. Other than that, some homemade fat burgers and some franks. The kids are wanting brats, so some of those as well. Will make a huge cast iron pan of country squash from the garden out back as well and reduce it with onions and garlic and a ton of butter until I get a little char going and it's the consistency of mashed potatoes. Throw some shredded cheese on it and serve. Good stuff. The squash always gets wiped out first.

    And beer. Lazy Magnolia's Sweet Potato Stout. lol...

    Cooked two cheeseburgers on the Foreman. Corn on the cob and mashed potatos, and a few Bud Lites. Honestly, its a meal that my wife and I do a few times a month, but it felt appropriate.

    ive been to many barbeques and i can safely say ive only enjoyed about a tenth of them. A lot of people dont know how to grill, they just know how to burn stuff and give you flavorless pieces of rubber.

    Did you tell them how you wanted it before hand? Because otherwise, how could they know?

    My beef (pun intended) is when someone assumes that I want my food cooked a certain way because most other people do. Especially when I ask for it to be cooked extra well and they give it to me bleeding inside. Makes me sick. Had that happen at a resturant when I was on vacation a few weeks ago.

    You have to let meat rest, so it pulls the juices back in and the muscle relaxes again.

    Anyways, my meat turned out okay but not great imo. Others enjoyed it. I did the hangar med rare, the oyster med,and the picanha medium (just a hint of pink color left) for those who were concerned about undercooked meat. The sausages were the best, imo. Because I had so many people I couldn't execute in a timely manner on my small hardwood charcoal grill so had to use the larger gas grill. Lost a lot of flavor as a result.

    In future, I limit the invites. I hate bland meat.

    Chimichurri helped, but still. Missing that smokey wood flavor.

    This reads differently than intended.

    I mean this was a brazilian barbecue , as in all folks were brazilian, and I'm just sitting there not speaking the language but watching his moves, the only think that saved it was because he put that real coarse brazilian salt on the meat so..

    ya know that he did put a rack of ribs on the grill, and lot of folks think low and slow, hell he just cooked them til they were done, and there were just good and juicy, not like fall off the bone, had some give and take, but still juicy salty naughtiness, good flavor with all that caramelization from the fire..

    I like to surprise folks when I grill and go and find the fattiest pork chops I can find, and just threw em on there get em all crisped up and let em suck the juice and fat of the burt edges..they aways love it..plus its a finger food, don't need a knife or fork..always get same reaction..about 2 mins of silence then a ''damn, that was a good chop man''.

    cause folks don't eat pork chops so when they finally get one and its like that, where they cant sit there and trim the crap out of it and just eat it, they love it.
