    I'm a western Pa. foodie who has been cookin with smoke for 25 years. My current rig is a green egg, but I've used several homemade rigs and contraptions over the years. At 55 I still have way too many bad habbits, like dirt bikes, quads, guitars, beer....but what the heck, lifes short ! I'm self employed as a bathroom remodeler operating my buisiness "The Bathroom Company". I've been using my wife and three kids as my official taste testers,( as well as a few choice neighbors ) to refine my recipes. I'm looking forward to following this web site and sharing ideas with people who enjoy filling the valley with hardwood smoke as much as I do!!

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    Thanx all for the welcomes! My exact location, (Where I call home,) is Elizabeth Pa. Its about 12 miles south of Pgh.Elizabeth is exactly where Rt 51 crosses the Mongahela river.My last smoke adventure was last Sunday. I was returning from the finger lakes region up In central New York (an absolutely wonderful area) where my wife and I went for a little micro vacation, and stopped at a place called Leper Market in Leper Pa They have a little butcher shop on site so I bought these center cut, bone in chops that were close to an inch thick. I evood + dry rubbed em, and stuck em in the egg at 150 and was carefull not to let the temp pass 190 for about 3 hrs. I tossed a couple of dry apple chunks on the lump charcoal, shut the bottom draught down to almost nothing and opened the top up.The results were moist, soft chops that were completely done. Maybe a touch over smoked, but only a touch. Next time I'll cut back off on the apple and close the top down a little to try to correct this. I finished them on my gas grill to crispy up the corners a little. Good Pork!!
