Just got back from a few weeks hiking and camping around the great and beautiful state of Alaska, home of the prettiest VP candidate ever nominated (whether you like her or not, she's pretty hot!). I didn't get one of those nice $1200 checks she passed out to each of the AK citizenry to keep them loyal, but I did have a great time. Unfortunately, about the only smoking going on while I was up there for me was from the campfire! Browsing around the forum, it looks like there continue to be many successful smokes. For my first smoke after my trip, I am going to try to do a 9 lb. pork should this sunday on the ECB. It will be a real challenge and I may need to finish it in the oven, but I'll get her done, hopefully with some good q-view. Great to see all the folks posting their q-view and enjoying their great food. It's good to be back!
