    Moneys been tight this year, the worse income for me in ten + yrs. My boys are now 16 and 18. I was depressed yesterday about not being able to "load the tree" with gifts like usual. The last 2 days have been so very enjoyable because of the family and friends that I have surrounded myself with. We/I have had the time of our lives with laughter and friendship, and mixed with good food and drink, That has been the best present ever. My kids expressed there happiness to me also, and thanked me more than once for the gifts I was able to get for them. I did get a gift from my computer geek son of more memory for the old pc( I thought it was plenty fast) and a really nice book "Peace , Love, and Barbecue" by Mike Mills. It covers the history of Barbecue and a ton of great recipes, and info about many of the old time, and current BBQ places all over the country. It looks like it will be a great read.

    Merry Christmas to all my new friends here, and a fun and safe New Years to all.[​IMG]

    Wow two posts from the great white north, looks like I am not the only one in the snow on the forum. I didn't get anything smoking related myself. But I told my family next time think pork

    yah money has been a little tight for us this year as well. i am a commission salesman and they were down about 70% compared to years gone by. we had a good day, lots of great phone calls, lots of fellowship and lots of good moist turkey. this was one of my best x-mas's as well

    side note:

    capt dan, if you are ever in my area hit me a PM and we will hit the hard water for some fun and fishing. i have lots of fatties that i can bring along as well

    Got some Lodge cast iron stuff that I'm looking forward to get seasoned and in the smoker: A dutch oven and a drop biscuit pan.

    Not smoking related, but I also got a Kitchen Aid submersion blender. On a side note, it has a food processor attachment that makes one heck of a margarita!

    I didn't get anything smoke related either, but still had a goodtime with family. Lots of good food and good memories made and shared. It was a hard Christmas this year here too. Not so much finacialy wise, but with this being the first Christmas since we lost my grandfather a few months ago. But I did get a few gift cards, so I am seening a few new smoker related things coming my way and maybe even a new smoker. I am thinking if I can find a deal one, maybe getting a Masterbuilt electric smoker. Well I am glad everyone had a good Christmas.

    I finally got the smoker I wanted! I got A GOSM (the bigger one of the 2). Tommorrow I'm going to season it and get ready to smoke something (food of course)! This has only been my first year playing with this stuff. I got an electric one last year.
    I'd just like to say thanks to all the help everyone has given me this past year. You guys make me look like I know what I'm doing.

    Well nothing smoking related....wait a minute, I did get some beef jerkey [​IMG] . My wife is always giving food. Something you never have to take back for an exchange. I don't need much, got things for the house, mods for the guest bathroom. Did get a new fishing reel for grouper and a Garmin GPS 330 for the van. [​IMG]
  12. Good morning everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve posted a message but my smoke has rolled on. Quite frankly the smoke has rolled on more so throughout October, November and even now in December than I would’ve guessed (first year smoking, so technically first winter with the smoker).

    Nothing extravagant to report regarding gifts, at least grill related gifts. I did get a nice grill light, which I know will be valuable because I’ve already had many late nights at the controls in the dark. I didn’t really think to ask for grill gifts – I know – stupid, right? Well, I’ve begun to make notes for next year.

    Not to focus too much on my naivety, but I got a slap in the face today (Christmas) because my in-laws decided to have Ribs for dinner. Prior to my smoking career, I had few objections to my in-law’s boiled/quickly grilled ribs. Today I was reminded why we do what we do in the “pitâ€. You get the picture. It even made my Johnny Walker taste funny… rrrrrright.

    Good night and Merry Christmas.
