    My wife was also not the biggest supporter of my smoking hobbies. She loves pulled pork, but I can't make that every weekend, it's just too much. So I tried country ribs; she didn't like. I tried tri-tip; she didn't like. I tried brisket flats; not impressed. She was convinced I was wasting my time and didn't hesitate to let me know verbally. Then one day I did cornish hens, and she ate it like a hyena tearing through a carcass on the savannah! I sat there silently amused, then after 5 minutes of silent eating asked her how she liked it, she said "It's Ok I guess". Which in her stubborn language means, AWESOME! A week later I was doing 6 of them for her girls night gathering.
    I love it when families and friends get together for Sunday afternoon gatherings. Usually a glass of wine or beer in hand, watching the game, being loud, socializing and catching up on what happened that week. Then dinner is served and a hush falls over the crowd! That's when you know its good!
     
  12. I hear ya Humdinger! The wife is something else sometimes. She does like the ribs. There may have been too much smoke on the chicken for her. I'll give her that. I will try the cornish hens though! I usually chalk it up to foolish pride though. Hey, this is good therapy! What do I owe you guys for your services????[​IMG]

    Sounds good. And the same to you. If you're ever in the Detroit area let me know. It's WAY cooler than what you read about in the national magazines/papers. I'll make sure you're well taken care of!
     
  18. Sounds good my friend!
