The Missions: San Francisco and San José

Unless the mission is oriented by charity, that is, unless it springs from a profound act of divine love, it risks being reduced to mere philanthropic and social activity...Consequently, being missionaries means loving God with all one's heart, even to the point, if necessary, of dying for him. - Pope Benedict XVI

the reason why Our Lord and Savior has chosen to seperate the sheep from the goats and send the goats into the eternal flames of the nether world became clear sunday: smoking goat smells delicious, but tastes, well, like smoked goat.

i think the trick to smoking goat properly lies in choosing a young beast, not that old thing i was trying to cook...

the beer-can chicken, on the other hand, continues to impress - the succulence of the bird soothes the taste buds.

the guinea hen was average: fact of the matter is that there isn't enough meat on those things.

overall the smoker provides a great respite from the fried and stewed meats so prevalent down here. i have 3 other people lined up to put birds on this sunday. still awaiting the slaughter of a pig so i can get some pork shoulder on there...
