Finally got the smoker (friday) after nearly 2 weeks - not Todd's fault, that is just how slow things are getting here to the Virgin Islands. Been without smoked anything since just before Thanksgiving and was eagerly awaiting the package. Cheese got the starting lineup - been re-learning grilling and thought it was a safe bet with the new A-Maze. Smoked up some cheddar, monteray jack, Moz and a pepper-jack. Sure was good to see and smell that TBS again. Wife and I moved here from MN around thanksgiving and I sold the smoker before the move. NO ONE serves smoked food on the island (that I have seen or found) so I have been without since getting here. After the cheese, decided to do a bunch of Chicken leg quarters and they turned out great. Been a learning process all over again. Had an electric smoker, now just an 18.5" Weber Kettle. Gotta use what I can and that all I got! Almost afraid to try ribs, brisket or butts. Some day, when I get brave enough. The cost of food here is thru the roof so I dare not screw it up. Thank you Todd for your assistance with my shipping and the order the day after Christmas - talk about great customer service! ...of course I couldnt post without some q-view!
