Chilling And Grilling

 Here are Rebekka's newest pets. The Turkit and the Ducken. They are so spoiled they have to be carried around in an Easter Basket during the day. If they know she is around they holler for her. It drives me insane. It is peep peep peep peep all day. If she turns out the light at night they are quiet. The turkey gets out of the pen to come to find her if she is in the house and he can hear her. I have no clue what to do with these two when they get bigger. The turkey is to small to go in with the bigger ducks and the duck has a bad leg. I guess they are pets but I don't think they will be staying in the house.
I slow smoked some chicken over a hard wood fire this afternoon. The burgers were ranch burgers and they slow cooked also. I made my own ranch powder. I used the following recipe all but the dill. I put in two tablespoons of pickle liquid (yes I am still out of Dill) and about 2 tablespoons of milk when mixing.

15 Saltines
2 tablespoons Dry minced parsley flakes
4 tablespoons fresh minced onion
2 tablespoons Dry dill weed
1/4 cup Onion salt
1/4 cup Garlic salt
1/4 cup Onion powder
1/4 cup Garlic powder

When they are slow cooked on the smoke fire they had an awesome taste. Even hubby like them and he is my pickiest eater.
