    Dry aged beef

    I've used the Cook's Illustrated technique several times with much success.  I wrapped my steaks in cheesecloth, put them on a baking rack, and left them in the fridge for four days.  They developed an out crust and much better flavor than steaks grilled straight from the store.

    Brand new smoker

    Thank you.    I have to share the story of how we got it:  it was advertised on Craigslist for $30.  Yes, $30.  As we were at the owner's house looking at it, another potential buyer showed up to look at the two Weber kettle grills she was selling.  Well, it turns out he is an avid smoker...

    I am, that is.  I've been interested in smoking for a time, and today I purchased a smoker, seen below: It needs some elbow grease so I'm reading up on how to bring it back to its former glory. Hello!
