Cochinita Pibil
Spicy Pepita/Pumpkin Seed Brittle

Just like following a recipe only not as much fun.

Arrived in a box and after carefully reading the instructions like a recipe, and getting my mise en place,  6 1/2 hours and a few Advil later I have my new grill assembled and ready for dinner


and I did it all by myself. 


The first thing I did was season it. I wiped it down with vegetable oil inside and out, 
then I cranked it up and "baked" it for an hour. I'll be grilling chicken wings tonight. 

The directions said it's a two person project but I did it all by myself.
I know I'm breaking my arm patting myself on the back ;-)

When things got a little wobbly and I needed an extra hand I used masking tape to hold the pieces steady while I put them together and sometimes I used cans to prop up or hold pieces steady. When I was finished I had only one screw and washer unaccounted for so I don't think it will fall apart soon. 

Excuse me, I need to get the chicken on the grill now. 

And that's that.
