4&5 July Maine

The 4th of July was a rainy wet day but it did not stop us from having a great time with friends and good food.

The food preparations started around noon,Gary had the best racks of ribs smoked on his brand new smoker.

Coal was inserted into the small compartment on the left and the ribs after been marinated where put on the right side of the smoker and species were added on the upper side.

The led was closed and it smoked for 6 hours during when Gary was inspecting the process ,smelling poking and checking the heat from time to time till a fork was easily inserted between the ribs .IMG_0613

The smells from that smoker made it difficult to hold and wait till the guests were ready to eat–what a suffer….

I have a confession-I have never eat such ribs,it was soft and delicious even Jack (the Dog) enjoyed the left over's.


It was difficult but we got up the next day to a beautiful morning ,the sky was blue ,a color that was not seen for many days in Maine ,people say that such a wet summer they can not remember for many years.

We headed South to Stonington ,hour and half drive through beautiful landscape to have lunch in a restaurant on the beach.

This restaurant was “waiting” for Gary and Terri,on her last birthday they took a ride down there just to find it closed and now on the 5 of July we made it there together and had a blast.
