Well here goes...
Since this was my 1st smoke on both of these items I decided to give Bearcarver and Pop's method both a try!
I won't go into every detail (I'll leave that to Bear) but here are some QViews...
Fry test. Delicious! More sweet than salty. I almost stopped here it tasted soooo good!
on to smoke with a hickory / maple combo
all cooled down and ready for a couple of days in the fridge before slicing!
