This weekend I ventured to Bend to spend the weekend with my little brother and his wife. I love visiting the high desert, especially when the valley weather isn’t so good. For my bro and I it is simple, shoot guns, then cook and drink well! And boy did we keep it simple, we BBQ’d both nights, and put about 300 rounds down range. The first night was beef tri tip and the second night pork ribs. Pictured above is a bloody from breakfast, pork ribs, and my brother’s smoked tomato salad with arugula, cow’s milk cheese, and egg yolk dressing, as well as their dog Tune! Something about family and good slow food that goes hand in hand!
