Scott, sorry I am getting in to this post late but things been a little hectic up here.  Man all of that meat looks absolutely fantastic Scott!  I could have done a fine number on a big chunk of that pastrami and about half that Canadian Bacon both.  Just give me a knife and fork and go hide and watch me!  I really like the way you did the Q-View giving all the instructions and recipes as you went, heck, I think I could do both of those now!  Absolutely delicious Scott.  Keep up the good work and the Q-View.

Your SMF Friend,

Barry

Thanks Barry. I believe that every person on here is quite capable of making anything on a smoker. No matter what you choose to make there will be a thread somewhere about it or a member more than willing to help out. Heck. I didn't know anything about smoked meat except that I liked it before I found this place.

Last nights supper. Made a sammie with the pastrami on the side. The fried pastrami was killer.

Now I'm hungry again, Scott! -----Looks GREAT !

Funny how so many things (bolognas, strami, etc), we smoke, can even be better fried up at a later date!

I wish someone would explain something I noticed.

That last batch of 9 pounds of "Bear Log" I made, I added some heat to it (1 TBS of each--Cayenne, Black Pepper, and Red Pepper flakes).

Now when I slice it at about 3/8" thick, and eat it cold, it takes about 3 slices for me to notice any heat,

but when I fry it very lightly, I notice the spice heat in the first bite, and it's just right (for me anyway).

Any spice geniuses out there have a reason for that?

Thanks,

Bear

When the spices are heated they release their essential oils. I guess they are muted a bit when refrigerated.
