    Tossed the brisket and pork butts into a 200° degree oven to reheat for about 6 hrs. before the party. While that was going on I put together two batches of baked beans one spicy, one not spicy, and got the beans and the chicken onto the smoker.

    (pulled pork at it's finest!)

    Bout an hour before food time the in-laws, cousins, nieces, and nephew showed up, so set some chips and watermelon out and let the kids play for a bit.

    .... dogs not to happy at being left outside.... but 300 lbs. of exited dog(s) is a bit much to toss in with a large group... lol

    After dinner we had some visit time then we walked a block and a half to a neighborhood school that got closed 5 years ago and watched the fireworks. Whole neighborhood shows up (about 200+ people) and after all the little family packs the big boys roll out the $$$ stuff and shot of big fireworks for about an hour and a half straight!

    God bless America! and many thanks to all the SMF familys that have either served or have love ones serving and giving us the oportunity to celibrate this wonderfull holiday!
