This evening at 5pm L.A. (lower Alabama) time, I put a 7.5 lb. pork blade shoulder roast, Boston cut (that's the new butcher name for Boston Butt) on the EGG. I will take it off tomorrow at 5pm. I know, yall are thinking,, UMMMMM!, great dinner tomorrow. NOPE! I am going through this in preparation for Brunswick Stew, compliments of the recipe from djm5x9. I printed his recipe when I saw it on the forum and as I kept reading it, I knew this was the type of stuff that will make a Bulldog hug a hound. It sounds perfect for a winters day. It's so cold down here,, why just the other day, I heard a terrible commotion and when I went to investigate, I saw a beagle with a rabbit froze to his nose. It's 48 degrees on the island and the dogs are staying away from fire hydrants. I'm having to wear sweats over my swim suit. Yes, cold days take my mind away from seafood and put it on quisines that are more inline with landlubbers and highlanders. This stew should be a Boston Butt kicker. But that's not the best part. First thing in the morning (after I check the forum) I will start a big pot of Dr. Chickens chili, cooked in a giant Dutch oven on the BGE. I've been doing firehouse cooking long enough that I can read a recipe and rate the outcome. A fireman,, sorry ladies, I meant firefigher just naturally knows what's good for your innards. Doctor Chick's recipe is a winner and I will do full sea-trials tomorrow. Even though I hate to brag on yankee cooking, (what's that brine stuff all about anyway)I will give him a fair review. Are midwesterners yankees? Hey, you guys up north,, did yall have any midwesterners on yalls side. I don't remember any noteworthy ones wearing gray.. They must have been cowboys while we were fighting. Oh well, I'm going to give his recipe a try. Dave, we're friends, but be prepaired for a disappointment if I don't like it. You probably should have stuck with the butt. It's a universal winner that bridges all latitudes and longitudes. Come to think of it,, that may be why djm5x9 used it in his recipe. Being a southern boy, when I think of Brunswick, it brings back memories of blind dates at the bowling alley. Brunswick was stencled on the balls and the gate that fell in front of the pins you left standing. And, my northern brothers, I promise to brine something,, one day..
