Cooking Meat

I celebrate Independence Day a little bit differently than most people. Our church hosts a massive BBQ and the youth ministry is in charge of cooking the food. So on Tuesday night we started smoking around 1600 pounds of meat - brisket, pork, and sausage. We smoke it all night and start pulling it off to slice it on the afternoon of the 4th. Then we serve dinner for free to anybody that happens to show up in our parking lot starting at 7:00 PM. We really have no idea, but we guess that we served about 1600 people this year. It's a major production, but we see a lot of guests at it, and it really gives us a presence in the community. I just wished I like BBQ better. It seems like such a waste of time. JM
