    I guess I feel compelled to post this due to all the craziness that is going on around here lately............and Bubba's recommendation to use the oven is what prompted me out of the closet. [​IMG]

    I give a lot of people a hard time about finishing stuff in the oven that started on the smoker..........I do that in jest. I don't care how or where you finish your cooking........or where you started it for that matter........I always assumed that 1. no one really cared what my opinion was and 2. that most people would take it for what it is........a little ball busting.

    I have been surprised on the amount of PMs I have recieved both in support of the "no ovens allowed" and against it. Both make me laugh because I never really assumed that anyone would take it too seriously.

    I cook with charcoal and wood and what I start in the smoker, finishes in the smoker. It is not becuase I am opposed to oven usage, but rather I that I enjoy smoking and the challenges it presents. I like knowing how to handle every situation that comes up to keep the smoker going and the temps steady..........if it rains, I just get wet, if it gets late, I break out a light, etc but the food isn't going in the house until it's done.

    Richtee called me a thow back......or held back. LOL (I don't remember for sure) but that was funny to me. As I posted and PMd, I cook on a Stumps and that holds temps steadier than the oven........not much of a throw back..........and I wasn't offended.........it is almost cheating like you gas and electric users.

    Anyhow........rambled long enough. Thanks for your time. Please remember, when in doubt, assume I am joking, if you don't know (and actually care) then post or PM me.

    Just wanted to clear my part of the air.

    I've used the oven once.....but don't tell anyone, my less than adequate reputation would be in question.

    Come on..fess up..you don't have an oven do you..another case of oven envy [​IMG].

    Funny chit that there is a need to defend a an opinion on oven use..LOL.



    Disclaimer: I may, or may not, smoke on a stick burner, an electric, my gas grill, frying pan, easy bake oven (ya the kid's one with the light bulb), any other heat generating device and may, or may not, use my regular oven. I take my rights to use, or not use, these items very seriously. I may, or may not, sometimes joke about these things but do reserve the right to be serious, or not be serious, about them if the situation arises. I maybe joking right now, or maybe not, I do retain my rights whether or not to fully disclose my joking status. I may, or may not, laugh hysterically at any correspondences received on the subject. BTW..this is a joke.

    I know........I really debated on even posting any of this nonsense. There is probably no need, but I will sleep better at work today. [​IMG]
