I couldn't stand it much longer - The snow is driving me crazy - It's been a long time!

Howdy Folks,

 

It's been a long time since I've smoked any meat, much less posted a smoke.  Here in northern New York State we are still up to our butts in snow.  A week ago we got 29 inches that we didn't need.  My back yard still has piles of snow over 5 feet high after I cleared the snow from the roofs ahead of the last storm which gave us rain instead of snow.  I think you can see the picnic table in the pic.

I decided that I would smoke some beef eye rounds for some Italian Beef sandwiches.  So I fired up the gasser with some oak chunks in the wood pan.  Before long I was smelling what I had only faintly rememberd from last year.  (It has been 5 months since either of the smokers were fired up.)

With melted mozzarella on a roll served with some leftover rice.

Man it was good!  I've been using up the pulled pork I did last fall all winter long, but it was nice to have some smoke in the air today.

 

 

 

Take care, have fun, and do good!

 

Regards,

 

Meowey

Very nice....beef looks great on those sammies. Born and raised in NYC, living in Oregon now, and I gotta tell ya I don't miss the snow at all. But I do have to contend with hellacious wind and rain most of winter. Plan on smoking some pig tonight, wind be damned.

That sammie looks awesome Meowey. Isn't it funny how you get so relaxed & happy when you start smelling that smoker. Spring is right around the corner.

Glad you got to smoke and it looks very good, also glad I did not get that much snow this year, last year was enough to last me a lifetime :)
