    @lkapigian better to be lucky than good any day.  Can't think of a better home for that grill.  You will do it justice.  Merry Christmas!
    So, once again I will ask if any besides @lkapigian have any insights regarding a Santa Maria grill.  Great insights from him and absent some serious issues I will go down that acquisition road in the next few months.  I totally don't need but "another chance to play with live fire".  Niche uses for sure but instead of tossing sticks on the burner I can turn the wheel for the height... oh, and also toss sticks.   =)
    Louisville; Rolling smoke in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!  Seems I'm livin in a transitional period.

    Met Newt Gingrich today at the American embassy's compound in Rome. Actually we said "hello" as he was on his way to meet his wife, the US ambassador for the Vatican. He knodded, only after we identified ourselves as Americans.
    I've been fortunate enough to speak with Newt a couple of times.  Super nice guy and amazingly intelligent.

    Isn't that the guy that dumped the first of his three wives and brought her divorce papers to sign while she was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery?


    I can't speak to the mans moral character.  I can only speak to my personal interactions with him.  He was very nice.

    @lousubcap I don’t have a SM grill but you have seen the hearth I have in my outdoor kitchen. I use a Tuscan grill over coals frequently. I enjoy the many opportunities to cook over coals on my hearth. If I were to ever build another outdoor kitchen I would build another larger hearth and install a grate I could raise and lower - basically a SM grill. 
    I would encourage you to make the leap and get one. I think you would enjoy it.

    Its 6 o’clock on Christmas Eve - I need to get this done quick otherwise SWMBO is not getting a gift this year.

    Hectic schedule - where we go;

    Boxing Day;

    Lunchtime : Spurs v Brighton : this is the return match from Spurs’ nadir under Poch’, when they got beat 3 zip by the filthy Seagulls.  Jose will be stung by the defat to Chelsea last time out - expect a fully fired up Spurs this time.  2-0

    3 pm

    Villa v Norwich : both need the points, Villa will think they have them - then concede to a late Puki equaliser. 1-1

    Bournemouth v Arsenal  :  Cherries all day long 1-0.  Arsenal are more out of sorts than something that has never even been sorted. 

    Chelsea v Southampton : Super Frank is Super Frank again after beating Spurs.   Ings has found form for the Saints, but not enough.  3-1 Chels’

    Palace v West Ham  : Can Palace do the double over the Hammers after beating them at their place?  Not a chance.  0-0 written all over it. 

    Everton v Burnley : likely another snooze-fest here.  Ancelotti has arrived but too soon to unlock the Toffee’s.  Dyche will want a post and will grind it out.  0-0

    Sheff Utd v Watford  :  Ole let me down last week by gifting the thugs of Watford three points.  The Blades will most defiantly not make the same mistakes.  2-0  home win. 

    Man Utd v Newcastle : The Toon have become reliable and resolute.  Utd remain topsy-turkey.  I reckon they will just about do this with a 2-1 win. 

    Stoke have slipped back to bottom in the table and face 3rd place Sheff Wed, just week after flirting with escaping the relegation zone. Half way through the season now and they need to to start seeking out points. A draw would be acceptable, a win fantastic. Let's go 1-1.  

    Tea time

    Leicester v Liverpool : fun times!  There will be goals.  The foxes got schooled by City last week and so it seems a valiant 3rd is most likely for them now but a win here might spark a flicker of excitement in to the title race.  A snazzy 2-2 seems appealing, but I reckon the Reds will squeeze it out for a 1-0 and on goes the roll.

    Friday 27th 

    Wolves v Man City : As exciting as they are, the Wolves just won’t have enough to bag the 3 points in this one.  City saw off the flying foxes with ease and I think will cruise to second place from here on.  They will concede - but at least 2-1 to City. 

    Right - is SWMBO getting a new socket set or washing up gloves this year?  Decisions decisions.....

    Other girls may try to take me away 
    But you know, it's by your side I will stay

    The DOD got today (xmas eve) off, so I cooked my xmas dinner today with leftovers tomorrow.  Ham w/maple smoke, chipotle sweet potatoes, and curried roasted carrots.  I screwed up, completely brainfarted putting the platesetter in, and direct-grilled the ham and carrots, nice & toasty-black on the bottom, but still good.  
    I wanted to repost that curried carrot recipe, couldn't find it.  Whoever posted that here, Thank You, those were delicious and a definite keeper!  
     
    And a question: I thought yams were orange, like sweet potatoes, but are they more white?  When I peeled them they looked just like white potatoes, but were nonetheless very good.

    They can be orange, purple or off-white.  just like carrots.

    17.5 lb turkey cut in half, with mayonaisse slather, salt and pepper. This cooked very fast. Resting now. Will be sliced and refrigerated, then reheated tomorrow for late lunch at niece's house.

    My other major forum is a gardening forum . The problem lies with people calling sweet potatoes yams, the two aren’t even biologically related. True yams are not sweet, are more starchy and can be larger. Sweet potatoes on the other hand are always sweet though the amount of sweetness can vary a lot. For colors on the inside of peel you have : white, purple, yellow, purple streaked yellow, light orange, and dark orange. Three years ago I planted two different yellow types, 1 white type, and 1 purple type. The next year it was just one orange type called Jewel. I highly recommend Jewel.

    Done the prep for tomorrow. Eggs cleaned out and filled with lump ready. I prefer to limit the amount of chopping that needs doing on Christmas day as it gets in the way of my day drinking.


    " I prefer to limit the amount of chopping that needs doing on Christmas day as it gets in the way of my day drinking."

    Good idea! Probably also lessens the number of plasters/bandaids needed.
    Hope you and yours have a pleasant Christmas.

    There are a bunch of international flags hung from a line in the background.  Why is it sagging in the middle?

    Well, considering they are upside down and they just flipped the image, why is it sagging the wrong way!???
