    I have not figured it out yet. Heading over to the family's place for Easter and I always bring smoked deviled eggs for sure but might need to have something else too this year.

    Same here. Good ole ham, veggies, salad, and fresh bread. Then a big glass of bourbon after the family leaves!
  5. Doing a boneless Pork Loin and Leg of Lamb.
  6. We are doing a whole chicken, and a 10lb pork butt (pulled). I am starting it all tomorrow to take with us this weekend and we will have ribs for supper. The pork butt is going to take a long time, so hopefully I can start early...

    Joe, best wishes on your recovery. I had one replaced 5 years ago, tough going at first but it gets better. A  couple months in I was doing good. One year post-op I was able to run for the first time in 20 years, it felt great! Good luck to you, David.

    We have headed north for Easter. Now in Cairns just back from markets now.All the tropical & Asian things you could think of. Huge bunches of Asian greens,herbs, couple of varieties of late season mango that I have never heard of,mangosteens,rambutans the list goes on.
    So Friday at my mates house we are doing a couple of big gold band snapper,some prawns all on the char grill. I will do a som tam,green papayas salad with the full Thai dressing that I have posted here before.I will do a version of a sambal water spinach,it's kam something in Thai,chilli,dried little fish,crispy red shallots. He has a lot of stuff in his garden,kaffir lime,chilli,bananas,galangal,
    Great Barrier Reef on Saturday , 7 hour flight to Tokyo on Sunday. Then we are completely winging it for ten days. Probably as much raw fish as your average seal colony eats per day, char grilled chicken hearts on skewers,beef tongue I really don't know.

    I bought a ham to double smoke. Its really hard to beat a double smoked ham with the trimmings. Found out tonight seems family is comming in. I may look for some crawfish. Boiled crawfish is the big Easter item here. Seems we are going to have a good year this year also so.........

    Now I am thinking about making crawfish pies. Its kind of like a Easter boil, but its kinda of unique. Its my personal recipe and its pretty dang tastee if I can get the crusts right. Sounds stupid but a good pie crust makes or breaks a good pie. I have not made a pie in awhile so I could be rusty at best.

    But right now I am thinking Crawfish pie with a double smoked ham back up........

    A good crawfish pie, a crisp green salad with everything in it, and an ice cold long neck. Maybe bread pudding or a carrot cake. Not like it needs desert, I would rather just have a second slice of crawfish pie...LOL

    @Sota D
    Thanks David, everything is going great. My first one was in 2011 and I'm doing much better this time. I may need to get the old one re done because of "heavy metal" leaching from the titanium. Oh well! Just another day.
  13. QView! Barely all fits.

    Looks like I will be doing a chicken, green beans, and mashed potatoes. Not exciting, but it will be good!

    My favorite! I'll be having a few of those when I'm smoking the baby backs for Easter Eve! Not to hi-jack the thread, but have you tried their Helles Yeah yet? Pretty tasty, IMO.
  20. All these ideas got me hungry!

    I'll be smoking a boneless leg of lamb.  Already in the marinades (red wine / rosemary and scotch brown sugar)

    Happy Smokin',
