Holy Smoke!

I'm not a religious person, but I've just had a religious experience.

Ribs from the Reverend Dr. Biggles.

When his crazy neighbors rejected his offer of leftover ribs, this dear man called me so I raced over to his house to pick them up right now! My mother didn't raise any fools.

Open the foil covering - the first sniff wafts up like the song of angels. The first bite sends your taste buds heavenward. Porky, meaty, smoky and lightly salty, these are the same ribs he brought to the Food Bloggers' Picnic and they are divine. The man is bucking for sainthood, both as a great Dad and as a godlike chef of smoky meats.

My Beloved and I had a heavenly summer dinner in the soft evening light. We are not religious people, but we said our own version of Grace.

I am so jealous. His neighbors are idiots but you guys obviously are not only smart but lucky (:::::gggggrrrrrrr::::::)
But I'm OK with this. Really. Some people deserve all the luck. Really.

Actually, those are a little different. These ones here were smoked in a wood fired pit, whereas the ones I brought to the party were cooked in a smoker fired by an electric hotplate with a smoke generator. I have to admit, they're both fricken GREAT.

Hi Cookie!

If I lived in his neighborhood he wouldn't have to come to me. I'd be on his doorstep with cookies or something before they were off the grill asking to make an exchange!

The Reverend does a good Job. I wish I was in the Inner Circle.

Dagny, I like being the object of envy!

Greg, yes, he is!

Cookiecrumb, maybe you'll get the nod next time...

Anna, and you a peskytarian! :-)

Nancy, yeah, I kissed up a little and it paid off!

Biggles, thanks, I stand corrected. And blissful.

Mrs. I, I'm glad I don't have to compete with you!

Chilebrown, I think you are in the inner circle - don't you meaty guys do things together all the time?
