Assuming you are here in the US... any plans for great food on the 4th?

Some pastrami. I've never made it before, hopefully it turns out well since it's a long process.

I'll be a guest on the 4th.  I think I'll bring a quinoa salad with asparagus and salmon.

I think I'll grind my own burgers... maybe 1/3 pound of ground chuck/short rib, medium rare on a butter toasted bun, sweet onions, lettuce, tomatoes, lettuce, mustard, mayo.

Potato salad (gotta have chopped egg in it)

Maybe grill some sweet corn

Watermelon for dessert!

I just started grinding my own burgers, it's a dang rabbit hole. I wish I could find short rib for cheap like other cuts though.

GF is in Germany so I will probably just go hang out at the NC State fairgrounds for a couple hours maybe. We used to take the grand kids there when they were young cause they put on one hell of a fireworks show for the 4th.
Hotdogs do sound good...

The Warden has vetoed the ribs and made a declaration of chicken on the grill. Cole slaw, grilled garlic bread and dirty rice to accompany....works for me! Brined overnite and will be done over lump and hickory  :drool:

We had hot dogs for lunch.  Baby backs are in the smoker for dinner.  We'll make some cole slaw so we can claim we ate our vegetables.
