I've mentioned before that I have many friends who love to cook. Well, there are the ones who like to cook on the stove, and there are the ones who have made grilling an art form. Saturday night, I got to be part of that art form.
A invited a bunch of us over to his house for some smoked pork and brisket. Plus mac & cheese, potatoes with onions and mushrooms, salad, and broccoli. And dessert. Obviously. Let's start with the meat. It was in the smoker all day. A won't tell me what he seasoned it with (super secret rub recipe, apparently), but it was outstanding. It was juicy and tender, and though A wanted to have it more as pulled pork, it worked just as well when it was sliced. The brisket was just rubbed in a tiny bit of salt and some black pepper. So simple, but so good.

|Look at the beautiful broccoli!|
|This was my plate. The mac & cheese is kind of hiding under the salad, but it was still there. Delicious.|
|Partway through the firing of the sugar.|
|The finished product. Before we delved into it like hungry wolves.|
