What's cooking for the holiday?

A few weeks ago, I renewed my call for "Backyard BBQ" pictures. Today is another perfect time to do so again. I'm sure many of you are smoking meat today, and I'd love to see what's cooking. Email me pics! Happy 4th!

Texas BBQ Wannabe: 141

141. Mike's Smokehouse (Eau Claire, Wisconsin) - "Great authentic Texas eats in Eau Claire. Whet your appetite with our menu below, and come on down to Mike's Smokehouse! Mike's Smokehouse meat is a distinctive pink color. Pink meat isn't a result of undercooking - it's because we cook our meat in a closed pit. The smoke infuses aroma, flavor, and a distinctive pink color. Don't be alarmed! The pinkness doesn't mean rare - it means our meat is slow-cooked for hours and perfectly done. The sign of authentic, Texas-style BBQ!"
