    July 4th gathering required somebody cook something. I obliged. Fired the pellet grill up bout 10:00 a.m. and threw on a couple racks of spare ribs.

    Let em go low n slow for a few hours, then wrapped for a couple more hours. Threw on the chicken thighs about 2/3 thru the cook and they all finished bout the same time.

    Had the sides ready to roll about dinner time. Everybody ate well.

    BTW...I'm still doing a little habitat work these days. Got up bout daybreak on friday and mowed the clover and a trail through the pines that leads into the largest plot. This trail runs thru a narrow strip of thinned pines flanked by hardwood draws on each side. Deer that enter this plot on the south side usually do so from this trail. Seems they also like the path of least resistance.

    It's seriously as good as it looks Drycreek and easy to make. The cranberry nut/seed mix as just the right amount of sweet/crunch with a little protein thrown in to boot.

    Pictures of food give me an appetite. Here's our July 5 spread, seared Australian steaks, t-bones, cheese hamburgers, cheese dogs, lamb chops etc, all grilled on white oak coals at about 700 degrees. And a country boil on July 6 with corn on the cob, sausage, shrimp, new potatoes etc.[​IMG][​IMG]

    lak...I'm with you on the fried okra! That was a regular at our home when growing up. Had to be almost burned in a black iron skillet. I'm always amazed at how much fried okra cooks down from the time you start with a big ol skillet of cornmeal breaded okra and when finished, it's about 1/3 the volume of where it started. Folks fight over the bottom of the skillet.

    Craving flung!!! You guys did it up right with that heapin' mess of goodness!
