Hi Everyone - It's me Josie aka SmokinVegasBaby. Today was one of those days when I needed some "food for my spirit" so I sat down and re-read all of your heart-felt messages. Your messages really lifted my spirit AND my soul. These last six months have not been easy - some days are more difficult than others. All thanks to GOD, my family and my awesome friends I am getting thru it all. I am happy to report my cooking (and smoking) passion have returned. As a matter of fact I will be firing up my smoker this weekend - if the weather permits and I will be sure to post my Q-views. Hope you all are having a great summer. We are in the monsoon season here in Vegas so we get these dang annoying showers almost every afternoon. I am having a hard time picking a day that will work for smoking. I hate getting shut down by the rain. I will be checking in more often and looking forward to chatting with all of you soon. PM me anytime - love hearing from my SMF friends. Warm Blessings to ALL............. Josie and Sophie aka "the beagle" P.S. Here's what I made myself for 4th of July - Smoked Bacon Wrapped Red Onion Swiss Cheeseburger and it was off the chart good! The smoked Applewood Bacon Wrapped Red Onion takes this burger over the top with flavor. yes there was a bun underneath all that green leaf lettuce lol. My Jerry used to say, "babe why don't you put a burger on your lettuce!"
