Only got down to 0 F. Balmy compared to last year. The shoulder clod was amazing. It cooked at 280-300 all night new years eve while we slept. No thermometer, but the 24 pound clod went on at 9 or 10pm, I wrapped in foil when I woke up at 9am. Had real nice bark. Cooked until we needed the egg to cook eggs (11am). Checked tenderness with a plastic knife LOL. Went into the cooler to rest while we tooled around on the snowy forest roads. 4pm got back and pulled the beef. Amazing sandwiches, and will cook a clod again. Hope I remember the plastic knife to check tenderness, cuz I got no idea what I cooked it to! Anyways, here are some pix. PERFECT weather for egging.
Listened to gurgling stream all weekend
Never had this beer, and never seen around home.
Our egging camp!
Beef shoulder clod and fatties
Tooling around on Middle Mountain road. Trecherous conditions, and you can slide off the hill anywhere....but fun!
Zero degrees enough to start freezing a cold creek overnight.
Happy New Year to all!
