There are several amazing benefits to having so many boys. Each child brings so many unique traits to the family. The laughter, humor, and creativity comes in many different ways.
Our son Andrew and his wife are back from serving at a AFB in Idaho, now living with us. While their house in ID. is being rented out, we get the pleasure of having them live with us. A gift. We get a daughter, extra hands on the property to help, and with new farm dreams for our property. It's a flashback to Tom and I, 25 years ago.... We are loving every minute of it too!
Andrew has been doing things that we have wanted to do but just never seem to make the extra stuff happen. This week he was busy in the barn building a barrel smoker.
Last years pig feed barrel has now become a very cool smoker. We know you can buy kits for this kind of project but he made it happen with heavier duty parts to last longer.
Today was the maiden voyage with the smoker. Ribs, ham hocks from our pigs and a little trout. I'll admit, I'm not a fan of smokey meats.. yet. But so far they look and smell amazing, and with a quick little pull of the rib meat, they taste amazing too. I might be changing my mind on how I feel about smoked treasures that come out of the pig feeder smoker. 🐷🦃🐖🐔
