    Waxing poetic

    The thing about smokin' a brisket, or any other big hunk-o-meat, is that you've got all night to fill your time (and brain) up with somethin' else to do besides stare at your iGrill device. I was on my iPad, mindlessly browsing, when I came across a version of Simon and Garfunkle's (the group, not the rub) "The Sound of Silence". I didn't ask my brain to go all artsy, but in the wee hours, you sometimes have no choice. This is the kinda stuff that happens when you've been up more than 24 hours...

    The Sound of BBQ

    Hello Jambo my old friend
    I've come to cook on you again
    Blue-gray smoke is softly creeping
    While the normal folks are all sleeping
    And the smell of smoke is planted in my brain
    I cook again
    I'm cooking on, my Jambo

    While others dream I cook alone
    My only friend my new iPhone
    Neath the halo of a Coleman lamp
    I cook out in the warm and damp
    The time creeps by upon a million clocks
    Throw more oak into the fire box
    I'm cooking on, my Jambo

    Ev'ry 40 minutes I'm Myron-spritzing
    Upon the brisket it is glistening
    Nitric oxide hits the my-o-globin
    Creates the smoke ring lying just within
    And it's all looking better cuz we got vorticity
    Bark's so pretty
    I'm cooking on, my Jambo

    The flavor in the brisket grows
    So pleasing to the tongue and nose
    While smoke coils skyward up into the dark
    Imparting flavor deep into the bark
    Got to tend that fire so it won't do any harm
    iGrill alarms
    I'm cooking on, my Jambo

    What if they smell the Q next door
    10,000 neighbors maybe more
    But the Q it is for my family
    Who'm I kidding it is all for me
    I'll have the beef sweats, before it's even noon
    I hope it's soon
    I'm cooking on, my Jambo

      That cook started at the end of a "normal" day. Up at 4, rounds at 6, work all day. Started the fire at 9 PM. Food on at 11 PM. Up all night tending the fire, spritizing, adding food.Turned out to be a 44 hour day!

        I wonder if you might also have been doing what Dr. Breadhead was doing, when he discovered the affliction of MCS. Wee hours, writing music &...........
        Regardless, great job with the lyrics.

          I've never heard ketamine- or versed-induced ramblings with such class....only brisket-induced (and maybe a dash of alcohol).

            You should see if Disturbed will record a version of it just for us here in the Pit.
