Oh, I've owned it in the past, but I'm taking it slow... I was going to hook the trailer up and head out with my ponies for a trail ride today, but opted out to set up my garden and just play with the fuel for my smoker and just take whatever time I needed to hook it up.
I did brine a side of salmon last night, it's now resting under a fan hoping it might form a bit of a pellicule, but because I will hit smoke it, and the way I brine it, I know it'll never happen, but that's ok, because it'll be awesome anyway. After a really great brine, it's now coated with a layer of mustard, blackening seasoning, rum, & a bit of local honey, under the fan, it'll get a quasi pellicule and go great in the smoker. As longer as I can get the smoker on point, it'll be an amazing side of salmon!
