Sacred Heart Festival: June 12, 2010

After going to the mural opening where I was interviewed in Spanish by Telemundo….

we went over to Sacred heart for their street festival and had some nice fruit with lime juice & chile and some guava raspas. The grills smelled good, but it seemed too hot to eat anything heavy..

We watched some of the Zacatecan Matachines for a bit and escaped to our AC down Midlothian..

Evidently they weathered the late Saturday afternoon storm without a problem

Shoulder Clod: Round 4

OK, here we are. I got the smoker going at 5:30 this AM and put the meat on at 6:30 AM. I will take it off around 8-10 tonight.

Inside the cooker..

meat's on!
2 shoulder clods with a goat leg behind.

This is for a wedding up in Nelson County tomorrow. I used to cook goat for 300 folks at a whack back in the day in Texas.  Speaking of which, I may be able to be a judge at the World Championship Goat Cook-Off in Brady, Texas if I’m down thataway during Labor Day.

Now something from Wally Gonzalez, the Taco Kid.
