Excellent advice, especially the draining of the grease and nice plan with the cornbread on the side.

Be you must include beer for refreshment.

I think it may be a law in Texas something like: You must have a beer while cooking and eating chili.

That should be the easiest advice to follow. Thanks for reminding me.

Yes, you should have waited. Then you could have sent us a picture of the Mrs fixing the fence. And a picture of you and the Fonz sitting in your lawn chair watching.

Sounds good. Will probably have some leftovers I can use for that. Can't get fritos here so must use some other corn chips.

I bought one awhile back as well. I taught the Mrs how to boil water and drop the bag in it to heat up her meals. Progress.

We use our vacuum sealer a bunch.

Hint for sealing stuff with liquid - fill the bag, freeze, and vacuum.

Dropping frozen bags of pulled pork or brisket into simmering water works like a charm.

Thanks for the tip. Have no experience in using a vacuum sealer.

Yes, EH advised to fill the bag then drop it in the freezer for an hour or 2, then hit it with the sealer. Great advise.
