    Have no idea what I'm celebrating but if it involves southwest cuisine and beer, I'm in! Anyway, I trimmed and scored a flank steak and marinated in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic, salt, pepper and a few other things I can't remember and let it think overnite.

    Fired up a small amount of lump in the Weber Kettle and thru it on.

    This is probably a philosophical difference I have with others as in my opinion some cuts taste better grilled and charred as opposed to slow smoked. Flank being one of them.

    Pulled the flank off the grill at about medium doneness and sliced across the grain with the knife on a slight angle.

    Served it up with some grill peppers, onions, lettuce, cheese, sour cream and my favorite.... corn tortillas

    Went great with a dash of Taco Bell taco sauce(none better) and a cold draft Bud Lite! T'was a great holiday.

    Where's the Corona? Nice job and a tasty treat too. My dinner was New mexico green chile potato soup, New mexico green flat enchiladas, pinto beans, and apple empanadas. No Q View as my wife made it all while I was in the garden. Oh well, to some it was just a dream...

    That was one great lookin' dinner you had there. Were there corn tortillas involved? Your kegfridge is nice, I like the side draw-distribution method you have designed. Opens up a lot of ideas....

    Nice, Lou. The corn tortillas are the best, too.

    Good lookin fajitas!! From the looks of the plate you don't fold your fajitas very much. I like that the you had a backup plan for the keg at least.
