Been lurking for a while. Used the "Smoking Meats" to research some things and receive update emails on recipes and such. Purchased a Kamado style cooker a few month ago. Still playing around with it. So far it has surpassed my expectations for everything from smoking a pork shoulder to beer can chicken. Food is an adventure. Love watching the "Bizarre Food". Great ideas come from that show. While most people would settle for pan-fried pork chops, mashed potatoes and canned corn. I transform that into cherry-wood smoked pork, roasted seasonal corn and bacon-garlic smashed new potatoes. Now to me that is living.
