    Starlink Satellites

    I have been watching this in the evening/pre dawn sky, not as spectacular as they were when first launched but still pretty cool to see. https://www.satflare.com/track.asp?q=starlink&fbclid=IwAR13cpl8BBH-jz7v0pR_n3pgS4NqDhvfUqqK9FruJpwPvcIHLnoaWtlUPNM#MAP

    Smoking with Hops

    Was at this Brew Pub and noticed on the menu their bacon is smoked using hops.Back in my home brewing days I used hops in pellet form so smoking with hops in pellet form would be easy. A couple of decades ago I planted some hop plants along a fence, now I have hop cones coming out the wazoo in...

    Outside Round Cooking Temperature

    I have a small 1.5 lb. Outside Round Roast I’m smoking today to an IT 135F. Since it is such a small roast I was thinking of starting the smoke at a lower temperature, say 175F. By starting at 175F this should give the roast more time absorb more smoke. Any thoughts, especially food safety wise...

    Anyone have any ideas on how to discourage seagulls from hanging around. We have hundreds hanging around on the water making a heck of a racket at daybreak. We are in a provincial park so firearms are out of the question.

    Recently salvaged 3 Partlow 1160 PID, having issues getting into the Setup and Configure menus. All three power up and do a self check which appears to be okay. Lots of info on the internet on the newer 1160 Plus which has helped somewhat but they have changed the programming(so I’m guessing)...

    Moisture on cheese?

    I have only smoked cheese 3 times. I'm following the thread https://www.smokingmeatforums.com/threads/cheese-lots-of-pics.286031/ When I do cheese the cheddar will come out of the MES with small cracks around the edges, I assume from moisture loss. The cheese's with a higher fat/moisture do not...

    First Cold Smoke at -22C

    First cold smoke with the MES, once I got a handle on how little heat was needed to maintain a 32F-80F temperature the smoke went pretty good. I read on here many people have to wait till the temperature is just right, not too hot! No problem in Canada, I have to use heat to keep the cheese...
