Sorry for the delay Rich.
Here is the report on the stew. Unbelivable!!! I was a little concerned that the smoke would be overpowering. The meat had the nice kiss flavor of smoke, the gravy was the best, it had a nice rich beefy smoked flavor (thanks for the wine tip Rich). Just a great stew, Can't wait to do this again. Wish I took a qview but we ate all of it before I got a chance.
Oh I made some biscuitsto sop up the gravy...Yum!!
Many thanks for your help.
