    Howdy all and Merry Christmas.  My smoker has been lonely since I started my new job back in Sept but Wed is looking promising for a pork loin roast !!! I gotta pick up a new therm as I left mine outside and fried it in the rain..ooops! 

    Hope you all have a great holiday weekend with family friends food and your choice of refreshing drinks!  Be safe and have fun.

    as much as I love 2nd shift ( 3-11 ) I just havent been able to make my free time work for me LOL  I may be starting a swing shift where I have 24 hours off from one shift to the next, maybe I can get some smoke time in.  while I've been out cutting wood I have ran across a good amount of oak !!! I'll save back some for my smoker..now if I could find some more hickory ( what I had got turned into firewood due to its old age and some funky fungus growing on it ). I have 2 mulberry trees to cut still and I hear that works well on the smoker too.  My 5 gallon bucket of apple should be about ready to run in the smoker as well. 

    I've really missed firing up and getting creative, I'm so in need of a good fattie!  But first I want to do a smoked chili..hmmm that could be a good throw down !!! 

    In the near future I hope to revisit the homemade pickled sausage experiment I started last summer, This coming summer I'll be tending some hot peppers and get back to making my own homade hot sauce ( man I am so over due for a hab hot sauce ).  Other things still to come is summer sausage, and a UDS electric model for lower temp smokes !!! 

    For now..its surviving the winter and staying warm LOL. 

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
