    I jumped in early.  There is (was) a fantastic butt under there.  This was about noon today.  I worked tonight and am working in the a.m.  Happy Fourth and belated Canada day you Canuckle heads.  Wave that flag  wave it wide and high.

    Here's what I cooked today. All sauces were from the rub and sauce exchange. Thanks again @boston_stoker.

    I put the Savenor BBQ sauce on the ribs and 3/4 of the boneless chicken. Everybody loved this sauce.

    The rest of the chicken got the Anchor Bar hot sauce suicidal recipe. Damn it was hot but very, very good. My sinuses are now cleaned out.

    The squash was tossed with olive oil and then a mesquite rub by McCormicks.

    Awesome, awesome meal.

    Oh, and here's the meat after cutting.  For some reason the color balance on the cell phone took out the vivid red and made it look overcooked.  It wasn't, it was purrrfect.

    Sorry, all cell phone pics...I was too lazy to get the SLR out.

    Thanks Nola

    I was shooting with the shutter on bulb, so as it got darker, I opened the app up so I wouldn't have longerish exposures. Kept the details better in the fireworks. I shot RAW so I was able to bring up the foreground in post a little bit.

    There was some light falling on the flag from a streetlight behind me... Using bulb, I try to trigger the shutter just as I hear the whomp of the shell being fired, find I get better results than waiting till the shell goes off.

    Awesome.  I remember the dark days of film where you wouldn't find out if your shots were exposed properly until a few days later after processing.  I have entire rolls where I didn't realize I had exposure compensation on -3 stops.  ;)  Used to look up the exposure for weird stuff like fireworks in a book.

    2 more days to submit you cook and patriotic pics.  @hapster is in the lead for the patriotic pics and @nollaegghead is leading the cook pic.

    Come on guys, are you really going to let Nola kick your A$$ in the throwdown?
