I honestly never thought I would share something from Taylor Swift, but somehow I had missed this decision by Apple and this is a well written response.

+Joanne Yeung we couldn't have asked for better weather actually. It was unseasonably cool, which made all of the walking in the sun much more pleasant.

A few snapshots from an awesome 20km hike to an alpine lake (called Dragon Lake, or Drakolimni). It was hard work, with about 1.5km of accumulated elevation change, but definitely worth it.

(And yes, that's snow at the lake.)

I'm staying at the most incredible hotel right now. The views speak for themselves, the rooms are gorgeous and the owner, George, is one of the most friendly and welcoming people I have ever met.

If you ever get a chance, come here!

The results from my most recent pottery class.

I was focused on making bottles this time around, with the ultimate goal of making a sake set.

As you can see, I got a little fixated on the bottles and didn't make enough cups. I wasn't really expecting all of my bottles to survive to the end. Luckily, the cups are pretty easy to make.

Oh, and I made a couple of mugs as a warm up too, since it had been over a year since I last sat at the wheel.

The bottles and cups were all CTI over top of the other glaze.  It has an interesting dry texture and melds nicely with the colour underneath.  And, it's very runny, so you get an interesting interface between the two colours too.

A few shots from our final day in Papigko. The little river canyon where they go swimming once it's crazy hot out was incredible. I think it will stand out as a highlight of the whole trip.

A few photos from an evening stroll last night after dinner.

At the end of the "road" (more of a gravel walking path really, I don't think it sees much traffic beyond the occasional ATV maybe) we were on, there was a lovely slate waterfall.

Third Time's The Charm Brisket

The past two summers I've tried to smoke a brisket and been very disappointed with the result. I finally succeeded this weekend on my Primo.

The key ingredient: patience. Once this was in the smoker I didn't lift up the lid for 18 hours.

An awesome cut of meat also definitely helped, with lots of fat and connective tissue to break down.

Two lessons learned about my setup:

1) Don't overfill the charcoal. I had a very slow start with a lot of thick white smoke billowing out of the unit while it got up to temperature. Leave some room under the heart deflection plates for the charcoal to breathe.

2) Keep the thermometer probe cables dry. We got some rain just before I went to bed that made the BBQ temperature probe go haywire. I spent a couple hours fiddling with the vents before I realized what was going on.

(The second picture shows the charcoal after 18 hours at temperature. There's lots leftover for an even longer smoke if I ever need it.)

This was from a little while ago now: my first use of my new Primo kamado-style grill/smoker.

Coming from a Weber Smokey Mountain, this was a joy to use. Much lower stress due to the nearly "set it and forget" temperature control.

And the results were pretty good too, especially for my first try. I was never able to get that deep of a smoke ring previously.

And yes, a custom table is in the works :-)

I see much delicious BBQ in my future...

Pretty good for airport food, though a but salty for my taste. I'd go back.

Awesome brisket and ribs, but you can order most anything off the menu and go home full and satisfied.
