Still Abiding in Des Moines

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Hey there smokers.  I haven't been on here in forever so I just a quick note to say "hello".   I see the site is still as slow as ever.  It seems to run just fine if I visit as a lurker, but as soon as I sign in it slows to the pace of a snail stuck in tree sap.  But I digress.


Was smoking a ton this spring then it got hotter than hades here in the midwest so I had no desire to be outside anymore that I had to.  But now that fall is right around the corner and the kids are back in school, it's about time to get back into it. 


Keep on smokin' brothers and sisters.

Dude, Morning.....I wondered where you disappeared to.......thought maybe you were off to the neighbors doing more of that cold smoked bacon (old world style) you are famous for (in my opinion biggrin.gif). I'd hate for your "old world recipes" to disappear from here.....Dave

Hey, Dude! Glad you're back!


Yeah, site's a bit slower than we'd like...I got frustrated quite often when uploading pics there awhile back with freeze-ups, but it's been better for the past few months.


I hear ya on the heat factor...I haven't hot-smoked anything for several weeks here, either, but I do an ocassional cold smoke & sear with steaks or chops, just so I can get my fix.


Still in the upper 90's here right now, with a few days in the mid/upper 80's, and a few late evening thunderstorms to cool things down, so I need to pull something from the freezer and get a thaw going for another smoke one of these days.


You're probably about due to retock the freezer with dudestrami by now, eh?


Stay cool, brother!!!
