About that smoked pork picnic I cooked

First of all, I am so glad I got back to smoking food. It really is one of my favorite things to do.

That is a whole picnic pork roast, coated in rock sea salt and my homemade sauce. The recipe for it is below.

Thrown Together Sauce

1/2 c. ketchup

1/2 c. brown sugar

1/4 c. vinegar (your choice) Hot)

1 tsp. lemon juice

hot sauce of your choice to taste (I used Franks Red Hot)


This sauce is easy to make and in fact, I made it up on the spot. Slather the sauce all over the roast and place on prepared smoker rack or Weber grill with your favorite water-soaked wood chips. I used apple this time.



40 years ago today – I joined my country’s service – United States Navy

After joining the reserve in August 1975, I left for basic training on this day 40 years ago.

Time for Peyton and the boys

The only Broncos.

In this family, we have watched the Broncos since I was four years old. In Denver, you are a Bronco fan, even if not at first.

My first live game was in the fall of 1965, with Johnny Unitas and the Baltimore Colts versus the Denver Broncos. The AFL was five years old at that point.

Time for drinks, homemade chili, and snacks.

Style Weekly continues to allow an error to stand in their Confederate culture list

Style Weekly Confederate culture list names school in Richmond (named for a leading educator of African-Americans) and lets it stand.

If Richmond wanted to remove all references to Confederate figures from public property, what would have to go? The list may surprise you.

This from Wiki:

Dr. Davis died suddenly at his home in Cartersville, Virginia on April 15, 1947. In Henrico County, Virginia, Jackson Davis Elementary School, dedicated in 1962, was named for him.[2]

The Jackson Davis Collection of over 5,000 photographs and numerous manuscripts and documents was given to the Special Collections Department of the University of Virginia by his daughters and additional papers were late added by his granddaughters. The collection is located in the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia.[2]

The comments contain the truth, but they haven’t been noticed by the journalist(s) yet.
