Shadow Shot Sunday - Smokehouse celebration

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is back and we celebrated a birthday (mine - 58 should you ask :) yesterday. Instead of a restaurant, I requested (and received) a family meal from a classic low-and-slow BBQ restaurant, the fun, delicious and smoke-house traditional Smoke&Bones in nearby Derby. 

What you see is what we had: ribs, brisket, chicken, 3 large sides, biscuits, Carolina mustard/vinegar and Kansas City BBQ sauces. The food was great with an unexpected side dish of shadows. As good as the food was, the conversation and family time together the best gift...and yes, there are leftovers - supper promptly at 6PM!

Is shadowy food better than non-shadowy food? :)
