Happy 4th to you too.  I've got brisket on the smoker, my neighbor is doing ribs and I just tapped a keg of my saison last night,  we have friends coming over and there will be kids in the pool(drunk adults have to wait til after dark).
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Lucky dogs. I'm almost done with work. After that, I think I'm going to open the bottle of mirror, mirror I've got downstairs and watch whatever baseball game happens to be playing on this timezone...

I just put some babyback ribs on for a slow 4hr grilling, started the
mash for a batch of yellow fizzy beer :D  Some kinda Belgian Blond, 1.062-31ibu

Should be a nice afternoon of brewing & drinking while splashing in the
pool.

The only bad part is I have a nasty sinus attack, can barely taste or
smell anything.

Later I have a half-brick of firecrackers just begging to be lite ;D :D

Had some folks over for beer and BBQ yesterday.  I'm brewing today, but I'm moving really slowly!

Happy fourth everybody. I got a party to go to this evening but I'm gonna get some good brew for afterwards. Other than that I plan on doing jack-sh!t day.

Nasty sinus attack? I had one last night carrying over into today despite pollen.com forecasts being low. Maybe it's all that African dust blowing in.... ;D

I made some baby backs yesterday. I'll post pics in the BBQ thread. Today it's all the leftovers with some beer of course. I also rescheduled my brewday to next weekend as much needed yardwork got in the way.  :(

Local fireworks are set for tonight.

Smoked a 5 lb. pork butt rubbed with a Southwestern rub on Saturday.  Using the leftovers today for street style enchiladas.  Going to make poblano rice, guacamole, and some sort of frijoles.  Not traditional "american" fare, although I guess it depends on where you live. 

Happy 4th everyone!  Cheers!
