At last, our long-awaited chance to test out Dan & Gail’s spectacular new outdoor kitchen has arrived. Rotisserie, flattop, dual burners, sink, refrigeration…all here.
What to make for such a momentous occasion? What goes better with charcoal than pork? Nothing, in John’s estimation. So, Gail ordered a seven-pound bone-in pork shoulder from her local butcher. Anticipation whets our appetites.
John cruised the cupboards for ingredients necessary for John’s No-Joke BBQ rub. Check! A double batch is prepared (never know when we’ll need some on the road)
Trim, tie, rub, and insert onto rotisserie…ready to hit the fire.
After endless hours of watching and waiting, we’re finally ready. We added a quinoa/spinach salad, and a fresh green salad to the table. A couple of bottles of wine, and the porkfest is on. It’s beautiful….
Vegas isn’t all about Elvis, Wayne Newton, and gambling….we’re rolling out tomorrow with big smiles on our faces, and big bellies. In just a few days, we’ll be in Yosemite.
