Decided to smoke a turkey for the upcoming gathering. Having never before done so, had to buy a smoker (Weber Smokey Mountain 18.5) and do a trial run with some small breasts. Should have been doing this 20 years ago. First time was a charm. Best $330 turkey I've ever had. mmmmmmmm

Couple times a year we gather as siblings and help Mom & Dad stock up on winter wood for the stove. Decided to ride the ~18mi out to get some miles in and earn that great country breakfast Mom whips up for us at halftime (work 3 hours, eat, work slower for 3 hours). Road into the morning sunrise, past some fields and farms I hauled hay for 20 years ago, past the house where I first kissed my wife at a college party nearly that long ago. Miss that El Camino. These are good days.
