This past weekend we got to go home for a wedding and to celebrate my sweet husband and father in law’s birthdays. I was quite excited this year for John’s birthday because I had already decided on what I was going to get him a long time ago. The problem with giving gifts for me is that I give them before the actual day. This stands true for all of his birthday and Christmas presents. This year was no different. I held off until 4 days before. All-time record for me!
The first gift was wood chips. We have a gas grill back in Alabama and decided to get a charcoal grill when we moved up to Indy. And John recently had bought a lot of Mesquite wood chips and Apple wood chips to use when grilling. Both were great, so I did some research and found some small bags for more flavors…Oak, Cherry, Pecan, Maple, Peach. Can’t wait to try them out!
And his big gift was a meat grinder. Since John is a big hunter and usually gets his venison processed somewhere I thought it would be fun to do it ourselves. And eventually make our own sausage.
