Butt and Biking

As I mentioned in #10Everestsin2022, I went on a fairly long bike ride last Sunday.

62.8 miles to keep my #MetricCenturyEveryMonth streak alive.

I had committed to smoking a Pork Butt, and as you probably know, smoking a Pork Butt is an all-day process.

Luckily, like a lot of the things I do on the weekends, smoking allows for multi-tasking.

As long as I set up the kettle to burn long enough at about the right temperature, it doesn't really take a whole lot of effort on my side.

I just let the fire and smoke do its thing. I don't really have to do all that much for most of the hours the meat in on the smoker.

So, after putting the pork on the kettle, and making sure the temperatures stabilized well, I decided to get on my bike.

Rather than a big 4-hour bike ride, I did a series of 45 minute to an hour rides from my house, back to my house to check on the temperature of the meat.

My wife and kids were home if something dangerous were to happen with the fire. They know where the fire extinguishers are.

I've been doing this for several years, and nothing bad has ever happened, but I guess you never know.

Anyway, I got my bike rides all done around noon-ish, which was about the time to wrap the meat.

I even got to watch football, and drink some homebrewed beer in the afternoon.

The pork turned out delicious and I was able to get in a bunch of exercise, and I finished up my 2022 Cycling goals.

Win Win Win.

Of course, both the Broncos and Bears lost ... but I guess you can't have everything.

Regardless, it was a good day.
