For those checking in on one of my favorite days, hope you and yours have a wonderful 4th of July! I like to stay close to home on this day, huddle with family, and do a little outdoor cooking and movie watching. Put two pork butts on the BGE last night and they'll be ready to pull this afternoon. Some homemade sauce and slaw, some baked beans, and we'll be set.

Still proud and thankful to be an American - as I will always be.

Hope you magnificent bastards have a great day and are able to celebrate with your loved ones!
