Was meant to run the smoker overnight, but lousy weather meant I ended up doing it in a casserole, with a couple cans of cider in with it. No idea if it's going to be particularly nice, but didn't have much of an alternative. To serve with BBQ sauce, brioche buns & coleslaw.
Was okay, less flavour than on the smoker, but the texture was good.

A five bean salad with mint, a tub of humus and some water biscuits. Did the trick seeing I was almost out of food.

After spending the entire day yesterday sat in our friends' garden noshing on bbq and drinking copiously, I'm going to do a roast dinner tonight and then eat it in bed. Beef with all the trimmings, I think.

I made a chilli con carne and added a couple of frozen Carolina Reapers.

It was hot. ****ing hot. In fact far too ****ing hot.

My hoop is going to be in bits by the morning. :oops:

Very good steak & chips with mildly disappointing salad.

^ You don't win friends with Salad.

Evening meal for me was a Baguette from Tesco, with an Aldi combo of their Topside sliced Beef, Horseradish, Lettuce and Tomato.

I love Aldi stuff. I was a bit of a snob about the place until I first went there this time last year. Their Pate's and Cheeses are outstanding.

Chicken breast and crispy streaky bacon in a toasted bun with lettuce, red onion, gherkin, Mayo, American mustard and Cholula chipotle sauce with fries. Superb.

After a skin-full last night I fell into a curry house at 1030pm. Sphincter has been in all sorts of bother today.

Made a lentil salad with chicken. I surprised
myself with how good it was.

The second half of my weapons grade chilli con carne.

Suprisingly, didnt seem as bad as yesterday. Either its mellowed or (more likely) Ive destroyed my taste buds.
