Thanks to everyone for the kind words and to all that passed on some rep points! This post alone jumped me from rep power 2 to 3, gave me a new green square (whatever that is) and jumped my rep points from 60 to 100! I smoke for my simple passion for it, and I like the comments I receive in this forum as much or more than the direct feedback from the people fed. You guys in here understand that it ain't just "set it and forget it". From the prep time (rub, brine, wrap, coring the jalaps, etc), to getting the smoker ready, to keeping the smoke and heat right, to the pulling, slicing, and packaging, I think I spent over 33 direct hours prearing this feast. But it is nice to get some recognition from my peers and mentors in here!!
