 We were all outside for a bit, the kids playing in the backyard and the pool while I did some reading and then prepped the smoker for some beef and chicken. All was going well, until Kiyan took the opened bags of chips and dumped them into one big pile. I can still use them, but now I can't mix a given ratio for the flavor I want. I am very irritated. This followed him dumping over the container of soaking chips, but they had soaked enough that it didn't affect the cooking. 

I got a sirloin roast in the smoker along with 6 chicken breasts. I used a combo of hickory and maple, usually fruit and hickory is used for poultry and a combo of hickory and hardwood like maple is for beef and pork, but I figured maple would be fine on the chicken so they can all cook at once. 

Combined with yesterday's chili, this should keep us fed through the weekend easily. In a bit we need to swing by the library to get the kids summer reading forms, and I need to send in Pari's 4H project list.
