cinqo de mayo – fail


the fifth of may was going to be a great night of shared food and friends. but it was a rain out. the weather went bad and the people scattered. my bbq was finished indoors and not according to plan. very sad.  but things were still tasty just not what I was trying to demonstrate.

it was all for good anyways,  I wasn’t getting the results that i was hoping for.  I had broken my instant read thermometer and i was flying blind on temperature. I was asking too much of the bbq thermometer to be accurate enough for a long smoking session. I will have to try again on a nicer day.  just know that i tried my best, but low temperatures and pouring rain don’t mix with bbq.
