Load the smoker with a nice rubbed brisket and some apple wood in the morning, bring to 160 degrees and let her go until late afternoon. Consume growlers and nip a little frozen cane rum (Leblon) with friends. Eat, eat, eat.

Barbecue, fireworks, swimming and mosquitoes. But not necessarily in that order.

Good one, thebcman!
Red necks are called that because they worked out in the sun all day and the backs of their necks got sunburned. They were, and are, called peckerwoods because that is a southern term for the woodpecker, one species of which has a red band on the back of the head. Every time I hear or read this term I think of the movie Shootist with Mark Wahlberg, which is one of favorites. My family shoots off a lot of fireworks, I love the sound of things blowing up especially when they do it beautifully. I want an Abrams but so far have not been able to find one on E Bay or Craigslist. Happy 4th!
