The brisket was a success. It cooked 7 1/2 hours at 225°. I sliced the rest today.
Looks like I’ll either be dragging brush to the brush pile, or cutting down the landscape timber to fit the hole for the gate. Even Big Lou with striking hammer abuse could not bust out the concrete. OK then…or neither.
I did manage to make a batch of homemade Cracker Jacks. Now I remember why I don’t make them often..
I got up to start the canning this morning. It do make a difference if everything is thawed, washed, and heated ready to begin…and that’s the easy part. It still takes a while to hit the 11 lb mark to start the 55 minute timer.
Note to self…2 40 oz bags of corn kernels is just barely over 7 pint jars.
We’re at 1243′ elevation here, so 11 psi is the target on the pressure gage. I’m there now, I just gotta watch it for some final tweaking; which seems to be constant.
I might make some Bert Porter Bread today. The wife says I shouldn’t be outside, and subject myself to a relapse..at least, not right away.
Bread is now on the first rise.
corn is done…
As I said, not much going on here.
The bread will be done in about 2 1/2 hours.
Fresh sliced bread with some brisket; hmmm.
