St. Patrick's Day in Savannah

Savannah claims to have the second largest St. Patrick’s Day parade in the country…second only to NYC. Savannah is a city of about 400,000 people and this years’ parade hosted close to 750,000 people and it lasted for over 2 1/2 hours. TG has never seen so many ‘kilted’ men and the word on the street is that the sand gnats really enjoyed all those bare legs (and other body parts.) The traditional St. Patty’s day meal consists of corned beef brisket, boiled potatoes, carrots and cabbage. Now here is a twist on the “boiled” meal…try smoking your corned beef brisket. Treat it just like a pork butt using indirect heat and run the internal temperature up to 190*. Smoked corned beef is really delicious. You can also smoke your cabbage by coring out the center and replacing it with a stick of butter and some Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce. Then loosely wrap some tinfoil around the cabbage to keep the outer leaves from burning.
