Been toying with the idea that maybe a life change was in order for my wife and me. Well, today we got the news we had been praying for. At the end of November, we will (hopefully) have sold just about everything we own and are moving to St. John USVI. Pretty big change from the frozen tundra of Minnesota.
In all of the talking about it...the major thing I demanded (ok, I whined about it) was that my Cookshack smoker makes the move too. We fly to the island on Tuesday the 12th to see the place we're going to be living at as on-site caretakers. We have seen pics of the villa, but not the caretakers place. Kinda feel like Steve Martin in "The Jerk"...all I need is my smoker, and this lamp, and my bird, and that's all....
Did some online searches and couldnt find much on smoking woods, then learned that the USPS flat rate boxes are good for St. John - so I'm pre-packing several boxes of wood chunks to ship to myself. That should be interesting, but will be good to have the wood variety on the island for smoking.
Anyone know if there are "exotic" woods for smoking that I can get there?
