My wife surprised me by flying in my mom and dad (pictured) to try out my brand new father's day gift: a weber smoker. He was in the air force, flying the back of the very planes they keep here at Offutt AFB.

Perfect Nebraska day, we smoked a dozen drumsticks, a pork butt, three salmon filets, and countless bacon-wrapped poppers. Dad was only here for about 24 hours, and at least six of them were spent keeping us in the
"smoke zone."
