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

yo soy rey de pollo - i am the chicken king.

just slurped down another smoked chicken: after creating a gap between the skin and the meat with a sharp knife, i slid in about 50 capers and some rosemary. then made up a sauce consisting of olive oil, sugar, salt, and rosemary. basted just once. pulled the chicken off after 4 hours with the internal temperature at 180. used the capers to dress the white meat...

next up: honey basted with peppercorns.

after that: some kind of super hot pepper sauce.

i never thought i'd say it, but - I LOVE CHICKEN!!!!
