I've done Burnt Ends with the traditional Brisket, Chucks, Pork Belly and CSRs, today I'm doing them with boneless Pork Shoulder. 
Pretty much the same as CSRs but using the whole shoulder split in two, looking forward to seeing how these turn out.
Also, going a little different on the Smoked'Mac-n-Cheese.
My last was a No-Boil, this one isn't.

Smoked'Mac-n-Cheese
15oz = 6 C  Elbow/Conchiglie pasta, dried
1 C = 2 sticks of butter
1.5C flour
32oz = 2# Sharp Cheddar/Colby Jack, shredded
7 C of Milk, whole
1 med Onion, chopped
4C French Fried Onions (FFO)
Salt and granulated garlic
 
Pre-cook pasta
Make a light colored roux out of the butter/flour
Add in cheese/milk a little at a time till all is combined into a smooth cheese sauce
Add salt/garlic to taste
Combine pasta/onion in casserole pans, mix in cheese sauce
Smoke uncovered under meat and let those drippings add their flavor
Cook till a good color is achieved
Butter the top and add FFO
Cover with foil and return to smoker

Fire up the grill and get it very hot, we want nice grill morks
Grill flat sides down over high heat till just tender

The Finale
 
These were pretty good, no different from CSRs, no surprise there.
The real benefits are the lower price per lb vs cut CSRs and you get to play with your meat more.

I've had this damned flu-bug for a week now, it has been one hell of a long week even if I've been sleeping 15+ hours per day...  This stuff is wicked.
So bad I had to cancel a three day hunting trip at the height of our Southern Rut.
Anyways, I finally starting to feel back to maybe something on the scale of at least sub-human and my hunger/thirst has returned... Big Time.
I craved some comfort food and so I coached my wife through a batch of Chicken-n-Dumplings, she did all the food handling to keep my bugs to myself.
 
Now I wish I could've smoked the Chicken, but I'm just not up to it.
But it still came out danged tasty, filling and reviving of the body/soul.
 
Without further ado...
 
Chicken-n-Dumplings
2 Chickens halved and seasoned well with Lawrys Seasoned Salt
(Yielded about 8-10C of shredded chicken, I put approx 7-8C into the soup)
(Any chicken will work, even canned)
6 Celery stalks, chopped
1.5 Onions, large, chopped
2 Garlic cloves, chopped
Whatever you like for dumplings, approx 12 servings worth
(I used 3/4 pckg of Mary B Dumplings)
32oz Chicken Broth
4 Cubes of Chicken bullion
1 can Cream of Chicken soup
Water
2t Cornstarch
2T Black Pepper, 1t Celery Seed
 
In a large stockpot add chicken and bullion cubes, cover with water and boil uncovered for 1.5 hours.
While pot is heating chop veggies and saute in cast iron until onions caramelize, then add to pot with chicken.
Prep your dumplings.
Remove chicken/veggies and set aside to cool, once chicken is cool debone and shred
Add the chicken broth and more water if needed, return to a boil, add dumplings one by one, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 45 minutes.
Add chicken and veggies back, bring to boil and add thickener, reduce heat to simmer again for 15-30 minutes.
Serve.

A bit of celebration was in order tonight.
1) Doctor says my pneumonia has cleared enough to go back to work.
2) Received my 2017 bonuses from work, with a little extra than normal.
Great news on both counts!
 
A quick trip to Costco yielded some nice Prime New Yorks and a few Choice too.
Choice for those cretins who demand an overcooked steak, I'll not ruin Prime beef.
They don't know or appreciate the difference anyways.

My wife and MiL were shopping at Costco and decided I was going to BBQ today.
Well dang, if I absolutely must.
 
They picked up chicken thighs and St. Louis ribs.
Chicken and Ribs, a Classic BBQ Combo!
 
Rub the ribs with my homemade pork rub.
Fire up the smoker to 225°-240° with Cherry for smoke.
Low-n-slow, no crutch, cook till they pass the 'Pop, Bend and Crack Test'.
 
The chicken got a good dousing of EVOO and a savory rub of spices.
They bypassed the smoker and went on the grill.
 
The women made some sides, they sauteed some asparagus and carrots, tossed a salad and baked some rolls.

Today the kitchen was mine, even the dog got the boot... And stay out!
 
I got up late and made a fine gut busting breakfast, after all a man can't cook on an empty belly.
Eggs, sausages and biscuits with jam/butter

The Menu
Carnitas de Cerdo
Arroz Mexicana
Frijoles Pintos

Traditional Carnitas de Cerdo
Dry brine 2"-3" cubes of pork, then marinate for 2-3 hours in,
3parts orange juice, 1 part lime juice, keep rinds in marinade and cooking.
Salt, 3 cloves garlic, 2 Bay leaves and Cumin.
Drain juice and everything else goes into the dutch oven, add in a quartered onion
I use enough bacon grease and lard to just cover the meat, and cook for 2 hours or tender over medium heat.
Then I switch to high heat to crisp the pork.

I tell ya what, all the design and formatting in the putting together of a cookbook is a very daunting thought.

Oh sure, I could pay someone to do the work, but then I'd likely never make a dime off sales trying to recoup the costs.

Add cheese and get a nice melt
 
My tips for great burgers

Do not over handle the meat and do not mix spices into it
Season the unformed chunk of chuck and then gently form the patty
Leave them thick and form a deep divot in the center, I use my thumb, this divot keeps them from shrinking up
Sear them well, this is beef, I cook to medium-medium well
