Already thinking about Steer 3

If last week it was intimidating to get in a whole steer, this week I am beginning to understand the patterns that may emerge. It seems like we will go through 1 prime steer and 1 burger steer before needing another prime steer. Friday we called to order #2. Tuesday we will probably get the ball rolling on #3.

Meanwhile, this week is going to be tongue (pickled AND smoked?) Beef Shanks (which everyone is wondering about, whether or not it will sell or will be delicious…) And we will smoke up a brisket.

Speaking of the brisket, Gerry is all about smoking both of them. I am voting for one of them being a pot roast. His argument is that it is so rare (only 2 on a steer) that it must be done in the smoker, that being the best way in his opinion. I personally am a fool for pot roast. Gerry thinks that the chuck will serve better as pot roast. I think the chuck smokes up superbly. Meantime, the illusion of democracy pervades, and opinions are flying. (A good, solid dictatorship works best under the illusion of democracy.)
