Skirt Steak on a weekday no less...

Skirt Steak on a weekday no less…

And no, I have not started inhaling again…

a few weeks ago Mama Bear brought home a nicely marbled skirt steak, so I did what any guy in my position would do, I put a nice rub on it and smoked it, on a weekday no less, for dinner.  We enjoyed it much I must say.  The few leftovers there were went well on sandwiches the next day 🙂

Today I spent the day in a mad flurry of yard work, working around the house and smoking a Sirloin Top.  I am finding I really enjoy smoking for roasting, not just the typical smoke something to the point of being able to shred it for pulled whatever.

Today’s smoke was an almost 9 pound sirloin top, it smoked for almost 6 hours and was a really nice medium.  The finish pictures will follow, but here it is sitting after I put on the rub and was prepping the smoker…

And on the house front, I finished a project, finally.  The shelves over the entryway are done and just need to be painted.  Painting is not my responsibility, which given my apparent color choices is a good thing I gather… but check that one off, and I was able to make some progress on the fireplace, the frame is up above the mantle, so a little more engineering and I should be able to put the TV up so it is out of the way.
