Hello Redsy,

A few months ago me and the family went to Austin Texas. We had BBQ beef brisket and it was wonderful. I have made one since and it was great too. I will be putting one on tonight around 10pm and it should be done tomorrow around 5pm. It is a little bit of a pain but it ranks right up there with our beloved pit cooked pig BBQ. If anybody around here heard me say that, Id be ran out of the state! Happy 4th to all.

Mmmmm, sounds like a great idea! I think I'll put one in the oven tonight too.

We're having a 4th of July Block Party with some of the families on our block and then when the fireworks start we'll be near enough to the field (a mere couple of blocks away) to see the show. We may also want to stay close to home in case a fire starts and we need to evacuate... lol! [Linked Image]

I remember last July 4th. There was a professional fireworks display close enough for us to see from the upstairs front window.

In fact, not only could we see and hear them, we felt them as well. The windows rattled!

We stay at home, due to all the lunatics that are out on the road...however, we can sit on the roof and watch giant displays from Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, and about a 1/2 dozen other places all at once.
The downside to this is that the majority of fireworks are sent up by residents with (here) illegal rockets, etc...not to mention the occasional 9mm or 30/06 round shot into the air by fools...S

BTW Paul,

What is the story behind the Spring & Summer "Bank Holiday" ?

"Bank holiday" is the British name for a public holiday (i.e. a day when the banks are shut). Some are the generally accepted Christian holidays, but others were pretty much chosen at random and don't celebrate anything in particular.

Here's a brief historical note:

To all of you in the States, have a happy and safe holiday.
