As Promised

As is an update on that hunk of rusty metal Trey calls a smoker currently sitting in our driveway. Many, many days passed with not an ounce of progress. The three phase reconstruction project was just a bunch of hot air and wild ambitions. Then, this weekend Trey actually got a little motivated. For several hours on both Saturday and Sunday he worked his butt off trying to sand the rust off. Sunday a miracle occurred. Trey's mom found someone who would sand blast the thing for him and then would do some welding work. Praise the Lord and hallelujah!!! We may actually have briskets some time in the near future. And this thing may actually get to make an appearance or two at this season's TTU tailgate parties. If this contraption does get into working order it really will be a miracle...right up there with the parting of the Red Sea and the feeding of the 5 thousand.
On a sweet note...guess who has been Trey's biggest supporter through this whole ordeal. Brit. Daily he talks about the day we will have brisket. When we ask him what he wants for supper the usual answer of "chicken and french fries" has been replaced by "bwisket." He may be even more excited than Trey about the possibility of a never ending supply of meat. I've told Trey that he better remember this, that he needs to never forget who his biggest cheerleader was. When no one else believed...Britton did.
