Smokestack flavor

I like it when I can add something good to the neighborhood, even if it’s just an aroma.  Grilling is a favorite hobby of mine, in this case dry rub spare ribs grilled with an orange glaze.  The smoke of the juices grilling pour out of the smokestack, and drift through the neighborhood.

But the best part of grilling is — you guessed it — the eating.  These ribs, pork chops and chicken breasts all got a special treatment, one that provided not only an aroma and a flavor but a loosened belt.  Even after we were full, it was not easy to quit eating.  Our mouths wanted more even if our stomach had enough.
