smoke a brisket, a couple of beer can chickens, some beans, and my wife's potatoe (spelled this way in the spirt of Bush senior's VP) salad.

Of course BEER BEER BEER!!!!!!!
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

One of my most favorite holidays and we always go to something called the Blow Shit Up Festival, it's just at my mom's boyfriends, he lives in a circle. It's a whole neighborhood thing, they get hunderds of ears of sweet corn. $500 worth of fireworks, a parade which included floats and a Orange Country Chopper (my mom's boyfriends). Then we'll shoot of the cannon, they made it themselves, poured the iron or whatever. Was meant to be able to shoot golf balls, but the barrell ended up to small. All the fireworks are illegal, only legal ones are the ones that don't fly in the air, like snakes and sparklers, and those fireworks ain't the only illegal thing! ;-) ;-D

I'm going to Disney World for the 4th of July. So I'll be chillin' with Mickey and the gang, you losers!

...eh.

A few days later I'll be cruisin' to the Bahamas and gettin' drunk with dancer-chicks. ;-D

Since I'm not cool enough to hang with Mickey every year, I usually check out the fireworks with a few friends at Couer d'Alene Lake, off the resort... then a party or something.

How do you slow cook the hamburgers? I was under the impression that you need to cook them fast so they get a good sear on the outside and not get overcooked in the inside.

My girlfriend's dragging me down to the Detroit Riverfront to watch the fireworks this year :-o Eminem's supposedly rapping on the rooftop of some private party orsomething in Detroit. Just a random fact ;-)

No. No. No. You sear a pot roast.
The biggest mistake people make, IMO, when cooking dogs and burgers is having the fire too hot. And cooking too fast.
Spread the coals out and let thing cool off for a good 5 or 10 minutes before you even think about putting burgers on.
And baste often - even if it's only apple cider vinegar or worchestershire.
Let the burgers soak up all the smoke they can.
Sloooooow's the ticket.
That's my 2 cents, anyway.
