More o' the 4th




Nothing says HOLIDAY like beer can chicken, except for this chicken is on a soda can filled with wine. Kind of the same, except different... Another monsoonal day where little charcoal is needed and it seems more tropical than desert.

This side of town didn't get much if any rain, but the wind was pretty blustery and we got the inevitable dust cloud. Not enough of a problem to keep one from applying mesquite smoke to chicken, especially when there is a very capable helper on hand.

Tonight it's back to the grill for Italian sausage, the type of grilling that requires a beer in one hand and tongs in the other. Hope that if you celebrate the holiday you have a good one, if not take a break and have a beer anyway, what the hell.
