    Fellas,
    Let me start by saying thanks. The following pic is the tray I brought to work for the holiday feast. It has pork Snack sticks, Beef peperoni, summer sausage, and smoked sharp cheddar, smoked swiss, and smoked pepper jack. All done in my big chief, using the cardboard box, fan, dryer duct cold smoke method for the cheese. It was a huge hit and I owe all my fame to the help I've found on Smokingmeat.com. Dutch, yer great pard, Jeff, I'd never even tried cold smoking till I saw the cardboard box setup.

    Take a look and yes it is better than it looks.

    Thanks Guys

    Hey I'm back to writing, Jake and Lydia are off on a new adventure and all is right with the world. I don't know about publishing, to self publish is expensive, but finding an agent and publisher is alot like the "the world's oldest profession". I just don't know if I got it in me. I may get around to it someday, but until then I enjoy being wildly famous in a small group. It may not pay the rent but it shore builds the ego and leaves me time to learn how to smoke like some of the pros around here. Thanks again for all the help!

    Long, If I could write as well as I smoke meats, I'd give up my day job! Have you talked to Tom and Charle about the agent they used to get published?
     
  14. longshot

    longshot Meat Mopper OTBS Member

    Yep,
    Both went to an on-demand self publisher. It cost Tom about $1800 if I remember right, I don't know what it cost Charlie. Got a Daughter headed for college and another getting ready to drive. Vanity publishing is a way off down the road, but I can always dream that someone from Bantam or Doubleday will start shooting CAS and happen upon the story and well you know the rest....

    Later

    HEy Debi,
    I already do internet publish of sorts. I post my stories on the SASS website. It is in no way official, and it don't pay nothing, but the rewards are many and I enjoy it. I guess though writing is a hobby that don't cost much, it's even cheaper than smoking!! LOL

    Thanks for the encouragement

    Debi- SASS stands for Single Action Shooting Society. Think of grown men and women playing Cowboys and Cowgirls, shooting old timey revolvers, lever action rifles and side by side shotguns. Here is the link to the SASS Saloon. Scroll down ‘til you find the thread “Strength of a Pillarâ€, that will be Longshot’s story. If you like to read Westerns, look for stories in the Saloon written by Elm Creek Smith, Charlie MacNeil and Forty-Rod. All have written excellent stories. If’n you come across some post’s by Ol ‘Satch, well, that ‘ll be me. I kinda help Longshot with his proofreadin’. Enjoy the stories!!
