Last day of the month.
December 1 tomorrow, and begins the countdown to Christmas and the end of the year.
The wife and kid came home last night with a very nice fat removed 14 lb brisket. That was a response to my offer to the wife for an anniversary dinner.
So after a custom dry rub on the beast with some olive oil marinated overnight, I halved the huge brisket into 2 brown ‘n bags in the oven at 225° about a half hour ago…an onion thinly sliced with some BBQ sauce smeared on top.
It did not occur to me to halve the brisket, and hence it was not seared in the cast iron. By the time I remembered I could do that, it was too late; one does not sear brisket covered in BBQ sauce in cast iron.
I am thinking 8 hours will be plenty.
With the oven occupado, no pumpkin bread today…or any other baking for that matter.
Sunny and much cooler than yesterday’s 81 degrees..56° now.
I coulda done the bon bons, if I had softened a stick of butter…no cooking required with those, except for the dipping at the end. With the ambient temp as low as it is, the butter will take hours to soften on the counter.
I hate when I plan poorly.
I am calling November 12 my quit smoking day. Hope it wasn’t too late.
I still haven’t heard from the hardware store about my chainsaw…I may have to go by and see what’s happening. I think the guy wrote my phone # wrong.
