Mr. B’s Texas Barbecued Texas Brisket


There are a number of choices for smokers.  We have this one from

The Sausage Maker in Buffalo, NY

This small guy is great when we make sausages.



The Best Tacos Ever!

This is a ‘Dove Tail’ recipe.  Yesterday Mr. B smoked a brisket in our little smoker.  This was a 10 pound beauty.  There is absolutely no way the two of us can eat 10 pounds of meat in one meal.  Thus beautiful, wonderful brisket left-overs.

Let me back up a little.  To Dove Tail is to take a dish and turn it into a completely different meal.  You will begin to see a trend with me.  Dove Tailing is a common occurance in this home.  Once upon a time with a house full of kids, I’ve always cooked for an army because I never knew who would be at the dinner table.  Growing boys, a growing tom-boy, their air-soft buddies, their girl friends or half the kids in the neighborhood, we always played “guess who’s coming to dinner“!

Back to this monster brisket.  I sectioned it off into about 2 pound hunks, one went in the refrigerator for tonight’s tacos and the rest in the freezer.


What I am sharing with you today is more of a technique than a recipe.


A Best Friend

One of my very best friends lives 1200 miles away.  She stayed put and I moved.  Though  you know you love someone and care deeply about them, you don’t realize what you are leaving.  I thought I knew but I really r-e-a-l-l-y miss our time together.  In retrospect, it is kinda’  funny the way we met.  It involved kids and a BB gun.  We both cried, we both laughed, and we both shook our heads in amusement.  But I have to thank her kid and my kids for that BB gun incident.  It brought two strange – oh uhhh, strangers together.


Who is Someone that Makes You…

I think I am going to try something new.  On Sunday’s I will have a question and I will give you my answer.  There is no wrong answer and it’ a rhetorical one at that…just something for you to ponder or something that will bring a smile to your lips and a twinkle in your eyes.

Who is someone that makes you…


It makes me smile to know that Kid #3 came home safely to this

beautiful little sweetheart.
