It's true Georgia and South Carolina are looking down the giving end of a double barrel storm shotgun with a very negative outcome predicted by the National Weather Service. So, being the dedicated husband I am, I decided to make a nice grass finished braised beef brisket and root vegetables crock pot meal and stock base while marinating about 4 pounds of steak for jerky and steak sandwhiches. I'll use about a cup of the crock pot stock to make tonights' french onion soup and some of the marinated steak to make steak/farmer cheese sandwhiches on fresh baked rye with horesradish aoli. The rest will go into the dehydrator latter this afternoon to make some beef jerky. The brisket will hold for sandwhiches latter this week if we lose power.
