Smoke meat anyone?

Well I'm back to share what hubby and I did from early this morning, we prepped 150lbs of pork butt(store bought) and made smoke meat. We had the meats cut up this past Thursday evening, had it soaked in our special sauce and today we had it smoked. It took 3 1/2 hours to smoke but prepping it was the longest, we were up wee this morning.  Each strand of meat was hung up with the large paper clips with took (3) boxes of 100 in each one.  Then starting the fire, which we use Ohia wood.  Hubby built this smoke house several years ago, we both use to go feral pig hunting every weekend up on the high elevation of the Hamakua forest.  Sometimes we would hit 1 or 2 pigs and boy that would be the hardest to pack down from the mountains... Hubby would skin it and would have to pack it in burlap bags and hike it down the river banks to get to our truck.... Those were the good old days, we haven't done that in such a very long time, I don't think I can do it now... With him working (6) days a week we don't have that extra curricular time for our weekend sports activities any more... LOL!  Thank God, hehe!!
So here's the outcome of it... We also had two special orders for some friends of ours that have some graduation parties coming up..  This is what's for dinner tonight!  Yummy!
Back of our lot, that is our neighbors house on the opposite side

Cooling off!

My Mimi - his been inquisitive and wants to know
what's smells good, hehe!
My Taco was taking his nap so he wasn't available for
a snapshot......

Will be back later~

Best Friends!

Quick post to share a card that I made this morning.  This digital image was a freebie from Jade Dragonne.  She sure is an artist I found some very interesting digi images that you can download all for free.  

papers from Doodlebug
Spellbinders - scallop rectangles
gems, copic and Spectrum Noir markers.

I will be back later with another posting, something that hubby and I were doing from early this morning.... Yum, yum!

Have a Sun-shiney birthday!

Happy weekend all my crafty friends~ Hope you all have something awesome going on... I have a card I wanted to share and I don't know who to credit this freebie that I got awhile back... I have a poor habit of downloading these freebie digis that I get through FB or from blog sites.  I usually right it on a scratch pad that's on my desk with other notes and compile it with other notes and sooner or later I can't figure out who belongs to what digi. And because they are digital's I file them in one file that's call freebies and don't give it a name.... Anyhow it came with (3) different cute mermaids and they are just adorable... Got the other two colored up but haven't worked on laying it out on my cards yet. Being that it was free, I'm sure I can share it if any of you would want them. Just let me know in my comment section
So here is this first cutie:

digi image - freebie (?)
papers - Doodlebug
Spellbinders oval & scallops
Spectrum Noir and copic markers
gems, stickles, skittles(from Carrie)
