    Grabbed a ham and decided to smoke it with some little scabs of peach/apple

    Comp Teams Wood chunk rack at bro in laws garden/storage/Art Studio house needs tightening up a bit.........

    Peach and a little apple

    Onto the smoker at 300-350-not to worried about temp-just reheating

    Starting to get fresh apples from new york state

    Slice em and saute in 1/2 a lemons juice, butter,brown sugar, cinnamon and grated nutmeg

    Bake sweet potatoes at 350 or until skins soft

    Start building casserole

    Here it is after 25-30 minutes at 350 degree.Had to run over to garden so residual heat in oven browned the apple a bit,but spot on tasting...

    I glaze my hams at end with the juice of 1/2 orange-said oranges grated rind and add some of my neighbors fresh honey

    Served it with some fresh beans i ran over to garden to get...

    The casserole is killer with fresh ingredients.Gonna make a 5 gallon bucket worth when we do up a pig on the sisters hog roaster soon....

    Nice meal Alex, that casserole sounds really good.
    I liked the wood rack, much more organized than my piles of oak on one side, peach on the other and boxes of cherry and apple piled on top, then hickory in a few random bags on the porch.
    Only tossed the peach on once but it was really smoldering a lot so I just took it off and haven't really even experimented with it yet but looking at that ham I'm thinking I should grab one and fire it up with a mix of apple/peach wood.

    Have an orchard I go to for my wood so if there is anything you would like a box of I can always pick it up next time I run out there and bring it to you in DE.
    The had apple but are out till next year, have peach, lots of oak, cherry and I believe maple but the maple was in a random bin so I didn't get any of that.

    Thanks Jim.I would take some Peach when you come to our comp-still have a bunch, but i love it..Whatever peach you can get and will pay for it as well.We just cut down a huge mapple and i have a cord of red oak and cherry....

    Always interested in extra apple-keep you in mind for sure,but i am good for awhile.

    Peach/apple is a dynamite combo for light smoking....As always gotta season well....

    I was getting excited to see a sweet looking ham, but then that apple and sweet potato casserole looks outstanding.
