One of the reasons I’m still not in France is because I needed to wait until winter finished to do my Spring gardening. I’ve been listening for years to those of you who are both proficient and interested in gardening, which has made me also interested and a little envious. So this year I decided to join you “green thumbers” in a way. My way 😀
I wasn’t playing around! I wanted to ream out my dry and practically barren front garden and needed professional help with serious equipment. Bob Shupp understood what I wanted. The work is a bit dear but after I saw his tractor, I was sold 🙂 He can do everything, including cook!
Bob also raises his own pigs and cows. I’ve never been a big fan of beef brisket, it always seemed too dry, tasteless and with the character of a lump of anonymous barbecued animal. But Bob made the best brisket I have ever tasted. Ever! He says all he did was marinate the brisket in Italian dressing, smoke it for 14 hours in his Camp Chef pellet smoker, sliced it, and poured more dressing on top. I’m still thinking about the taste. Of course the meat came from his farm raised cow. Makes a difference.
When I come back from France, I’m buying a Camp Chef pellet smoker and some of Bob’s meat 😀
