What Was Your Labor Day Feast?

Well it's now the day after Labor Day so thought of it as a good time to learn what other Insiders feasted on for the holiday?

 

The IAHFLYR household got out the small charcoal grill and turned it into a mini smoker.  I got the temperature to 230 degrees and tossed some Pecan chips on the fire.


First on was a lone Pork Chop we had in the freezer and after thawing it rubbed it with a Tangy Mustard Sauce.  After 90 minutes I then put a small piece of Atlantic Salmon in the mini smoker.  Since Atlantic Salmon is a little more moist than Wild Sockeye, King, Copper River or other tasty Salmon from the Great Northwest Pacific waters we smoke the Atlantic.  Our favorite is Pacific Salmon over Atlantic Salmon when grilling or putting it on a Cedar Plank, but Atlantic smokes very well.  Of course a slightly smoked piece of Pineapple is always good to enjoy with Pork.

While I was playing outside with the grill Mrs. IAH was finishing off some Northern Beans in the Crock Pot that had been cooking low and slow for eight hours.  She mixed the beans with an Onion, Carrots, and a few Spices......WOW were they good.  It was her very first attempt at following a recipe from start to finish as she normally gives up on it and goes by taste (a shake of this and a shake of that), they turned out awesome.

After the Pork and Salmon were resting I got some Boudin out and used the remaining fire to put some smoke on it, yummy and it was eaten long before I could get the camera out.

 

A fun quiet day at home was enjoyed, so what's your story?

    Great grill-meisters think (and post) alike. This was our main course:

    Labor Day Canoe-B-Q shakedown cruise

    Love that smoky goodness!

    Yummy!!

     

    We had "Feast."  Yep, that's simply what it's called - Feast.

     

    My little grandkids think it's the coolest thing to be able to eat sans plates and silverware.

    The next morning, we made a Crab Quiche with the leftover Crab

    And then later, a Crab Cheeseball!

      I can't take any credit for it (except for the freezer paper that was rolled out on the table. )  Our daughters did it all.

      This looks incredible! Love the idea of having everything spread out on paper...

    My wife (right in yellow) and I invited our neighbors over for dinner Labor Day. Everyone brought something:  I cooked seasoned pork ribs in oven for three hours, then finished them off on outside grill with favorite barbecue sauce; others prepared deviled eggs, cold slaw, baked potatoes, and we topped off the meal with a fresh, deep-dish, peach cobbler, with vanilla ice cream. Had a few ribs left over for dinner the day after.

    While my hubby is a grillmaster, we had a big party over the weekend and he wanted to relax. So, we went with these monster sandwiches from the best place in town...there were no leftovers. IMG_3684.JPG

    It was my birthday week-end (and yes, I got an email from Marriott wishing me a Happy Birthday and my bonus night's credit), so we ate lunch out Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.  No cooking or clean-up for me.
