    I discovered it at a potluck when a friend brought in a tray of cucumbers & tomatoes sprinkled with it. Good stuff!!! The only supplier for it, however, was Penzey's Spices (www.penzeys.com). Not knowing the company owner's liberal insanity (I mean he is OUT THERE!!!!), I bought my first few containers either online or at their store in L'ville. Then I realized I was helping support that nutcase & his anti-gun, anti-Trump, anti-anything conservative ravings and started figuring out how to duplicate it. They give you the ingredients right up front on the description ("Hand-mixed from: salt, freeze-dried shallots, chives, garlic, onion and green peppercorns.") so you just have to fiddle around until you get the right proportions. There's not really any good way to try it without buying the original though unless you happen to know someone who has some. (And if you decide to do so, I think the actual Penzeys site would be cheaper than Amazon.)

    Smoked a fawn ham while at the lake this weekend. It was awesome! Had that with some pulled pork. No ham left but lots of pulled pork left over everyone loved it. 4E2464E3-A360-488E-A46A-C330DFB1672A.jpeg

    I had some friends get hitched over the weekend (dont tell lil Andy;)) and they had waaay more food leftover bc the crowd was rather small 30<. I didn't get there in time for the ceremony but helped em float 2 kegs and got sent home with a smoked boston butt that hadn't had the foil unwrapped. Score!! :cool:
    Wish I'd took pics of the decorations along with the sunset on top of the cliff line. He used old vintage tractor seats and horse saddles as bar stools etc... which I thought was pretty dang cool.

    Another cheap meal thanks to the Mayo thread that's going on here that got me hankering for salmon.... Salmon smeared with mayo and then sprinkled with dill & garlic salt, butternut squash with brown sugar & butter, and turnip greens cooked with bacon grease along with some cucumber and tomatoes from our garden. (Only the salmon came from the store - everything else from gardens past and present.)
