It certainly felt much cooler today - although still well above the historical average I'm sure. We didn't resort to lighting a fire in the fireplace - although it's not impossible we will want one before the week ahead is over. Rather, I uncovered the grill and barbecued some pork.
The process of adding a few coals every half an hour or so and swapping out the hickory chips in the smoke-box was a good foil for our kitchen activities today. It also made for a very tasty dinner of pulled pork sandwiches.
I'm not sure it was the best pulled-pork ever - but it was the best of 2012 so far and E5N1 in particular was a big fan of the type of meal he calls 'fire-food'!
