You guys really have left overs? Seriously? If I smoke a chicken today, 1/2 is supper. Tomorrow the other half makes smoked chicken gumbo, smoked chicken salad, smoked chicken tetarzzini, smoked chicken spaghetti, Smoked chicken enchiladas, smoked chicken noodle soup, etc etc etc........ Its more versitle than shrimp from the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company! I have not tried it in a quiche, just seems wrong for some reason.
PUlled Pork is the same way. MY new love is pulled pork tamales!! OMGoodness that's a little bite of heaven.
Ribs are not usually left over. Ever, I can't even hide them from myself.
Brisket..... well its for special occassions, besides I like it best on a sandwich.
I think a vac sealer would be nice, but I am still using Ziploc's. Too many other things to buy before a sealer. A MEAT GRINDER!!!! LOL
I too have been trying to better limit myself on my smokes. By doing smaller smokes I get to smoke more often. And thats a good thing! And to say as those above, you will find as you start smoking, you'll have more and better friends and they'll drop around more in the evening about eatting time or just to chat when they smell that smoke in the air. You can't blame them. LOL
