I have bought plenty of cheese to smoke as well Stan. Probably have about eight, 8oz pieces now. I think your gonna need to bring both your smokers for sure.


I'm also planing on making some ABTs to snack on. Forgot to mention that before.

If you drop it off with your smoker we can smoke it for you and have it ready by the time you get here with your fork. 

 

What flavor of smoke do you want?

We can do two cheese smokes if necessary and then we can use two different flavors of smoke.

 

Right now the weather on the 18th looks perfect.  Partly cloudy and 57*.                     

 

Scott do you have a vac sealer?  Do we need Cams?

I have one I can borrow from my parents if necessary. It's a basic food saver.

The Wonder Dog and I bagged a goose so looks likes were gonna be making some goose jerky Saturday!


The goose was damn near the size of Hooper! I wasn't sure she'd be able to retrieve it but she did!


Me and the Super Champ with the goose. That's her proud "I know I'm a badass" look.

Sh*t! That's awful Towerclimber. I'm sure Stan will document with pictures but that's probably just gonna make you hungry. Lol! Hope to see you at the next one.

Cam mentioned a winter cheese smoke this weekend so maybe you can make that one.

Hey gang,

So sorry for being MIA lately. Been working a lot of overtime (I haven't even cut my grass in 3 weeks!).

 

Sadly it looks like I'm going to miss this one :( I'm really bummed about it too. My wifes family is having a gathering up north near Houghton lake and I was spending the last few weeks trying to finaggle doing both events, but my wife played the "we have a new baby" card and I lost.

 

I'm even more bummed after reading that you guys need some extra smoker space because I have been wanting to bring mine to an event and show it off. Sigh. :-(

 

Have a good time, and take lots of pics. See you at the cheese smoke this winter!

I was right about my wife holding a surprise "honey do list" for me. 

It seems like now we are going to be trailering two horses up to Gaylord, this weekend. Our granddaughter's, and now our daughter's also. 

 

Our daughter is going through a divorce right now and the horse is not being cared for properly by her ex, at the farm.  He was told by the farrier she sent out,  that he had to do something, or he was going to turn him in for animal abuse.  (The farrier had no idea when he told my wife about this horse he had seen the other day, was our daughters horse.  LOL)   OOPS!  Foot in mouth moment.  ha ha

So our daughter's ex called her and said she had to get the horse out of there.  What an Azz!

 

Would've been better if he had cared for the horse a little bit.  You know... like not turning her well built shelter into a drinking/party/man-cave or what have you?  Grooming or feeding?  Horse has no shelter at all now, no graze.  Not even a 3 sided walk in.  Not groomed at all, and underfed.  Farrier said at least 100+ lb. underweight.  Him & Jen have only be separated about 3 months.  So that tells you how underfed the poor horse is.  Losing 100+ lb. in 3 months is severe loss.

 

On a bright note though:

Watched our granddaughter, with her horse training lessons last night.  The trainer (also the same farrier mentioned)  is great with her, and has helped her a lot with her horse. 

 

So anyway, we are hauling both our granddaughter's horse, and now, our daughter's horse, up to our friend's rescue ranch in Gaylord. who will board and care for them, just for the actual cost.  No profit.

 

I wish we could have attended another smoke with you all though.  My memory is fading as to which first name goes with which screen names.  LOL

Hello Guy's.

Unfortunately this week has not been well. Lost another relative, and a must work day tomorrow.

Very sorry. I hope all will be good for you all.

Sorry to hear of your loss Rob. Been a tough year for you it seems.

We will miss the East Side crew, but I am certain there will be a cheese smoke at some point this winter. That will cure the blues..

Cheese and hand wash station. Check.

See ya about 5ish Hillbilly.

Pecan or apple would be my first choice(s) for the cheese smoke.
