I for one, have always kept pert' info' regarding smoking on flash cards. I have just gleened some interesting info' from the sages in this thread and made some new reference notes. I have my "Smoker's Note Book" with reminders.
As we become older and by rote we do what we have always been doing as "experts" for years,.......... we sometimes need a wake-up call. Graphically and physically, it's called, "A kick in the ass". Whom among us, after umteen years of cooking, hasn't forgetfully or by side-stepping rules, burnt a finger, while doing what we know we shouldn't have been doing?
If I am fast....I can pick-up this hot pot without a mitt. Scrub this clod in icey cold water? Ahhhh I can skip this step. I'm in a hurry and nothing's going to happen anyway.
Hey! Waasuhmadder? No thoughts regarding grubby smokers being harbingers of bacteria and disease? You can take that either way if you are awake.
