Rockstar the Hickory is a bit stronger then Maple or fruit wood so I would only go two hrs on your first smoke with it.  I have not tried peach yet but plan too.  I have done a mix of 3/4 apple and 1/4 hickory for 4 hrs. and thought that was good.

Makers 46 is real good. I've never used pecan but planned in buying some until I saw the peach. I'll buy some down the road for sure.

Sure wish I had stumbled onto this group before now.

 

I'm so-o-o tired of this cold winter.  Had zero degrees again two nights ago.  It's the end of March for crying out loud!

 

I've been thinking of what to smoke first this spring and decided on cheese and bacon while it's still cool/cold.  If I would've seen this thread I probably went down to visit with you all and pick up some tips.  I've never smoked cheese before.

 

I heard a noise a few days ago and couldn't figure out what it was.  It was the tarp flapping in wind on the smoker outside the back door.

It''s been buried in snow since end of November and couldn't flap until now.  LOL

I'll try to make another get together if you have them off and on.

We've had a few since last summer. It's a good group of people who know a lot about smoking everything from ribs to watermelon. Welcome.

Thanks you for the welcome hillbilly.  We'll probably meet someday. 

 

Come on Spring!

Hey frank,
It's good to hear you're interested in participating. Hopefully this recent thaw we've had has gotten you closer to your smoker. If you have any questions about smoking cheese, let me know. I've done probably 20-25 pounds and several different types.

Thanks Humdinger.

I'm a sissy.  I don't like cold temps in the spring.  Fall cold is not so bad because the ground is warmer to stand on.  I have some foot problems.

 

If the forecast holds true, I probably fire up and re-season the smoker/grill this Sunday to get ready for the season. 

Then just wait for a good day to do something in it.  The ice has finally melted where I stand at the smoker.  LOL

 

What a brutal winter huh?

I have not been there yet but if you want to go then check out Groupon they have a 50% off coupon for Meat.  I bought one for the son and DIL but they have not gone yet.  I told them if there was one thing there better then I make I would go and try it.  The potato salad sounds good.  I went to the Kings place and was disappointed so I want someone else to try Meat first.

Old town is the north end of downtown Lansing. A bad area that the city has been cleaning up the last few years.  Meat is a BBQ restaurant on Grand River in the Old Town area.  They close when they run out of food.  I have heard good and bad but mostly good.  Google Meat restaurant Lansing mi and you will see it. There menu is online too.

Just remembered I signed up to these forums when I was thinking about what to smoke this weekend now that the weather's not so horrid. Forgot there was a Michigan group too, but somehow stumbled back here and had a look through the thread. The cheeses look awesome! I have to try it sometime. I've vowed to get a lot more use out of my smoker this year, but I've only been focusing on meat. Forgot about all the other stuff you can do! Thanks for the pics and ideas!
