Yesterday I prepared corn bread, spicy barbeque sauce, and spicy pineapple bacon baked beans. I made large batches of all of that. Today I fired up the smoker for it's inaugural run and took two two pound beef chuck roasts, coated them with yellow mustard and a sweet and spicy rub, and gave it a go. After they hit the right temperature, I covered them with two layers of heavy tin foil, and put them in the oven at 170 degrees to tenderize. I then took half of everything over to Joe's as a new years dinner gift for all he does for me.
I then went out for the last run of the year. I covered 9K, completing 4 bye 6 minute intervals with 3 minute recoveries at around 10K pace. Felt o.k., other that feeling a bit like a horse at 180 holiday fed pounds. Got to work on that for the new year.
