"Yeah, I got my new smoker and wondered if you wanted to come over for dinner?"
It didn't take much to convince me! Nancy had told me he was looking at smokers and I told her I highly recommended the one I have.
Now most people who are new to smoking meat would start with a chicken. It is the easiest to prepare, one that any novice can handle. Not Robert! He used both racks of the smoker and had a pork shoulder on the bottom rack and a rack of ribs on the top!
It was an enjoyable evening and our conversation ranged from everything to the validity of taking down the Confederate flag to the crazy things I said as I was coming out of surgery several weeks back!
Nancy and I have plans to go paddling tomorrow. Robert is welcome to come along and use my kayak if he wants.
Nancy and Robert and I go back a long way. . . decades actually. I have always valued their friendship.
