I didn't know what else to call my introduction. Forty years ago, I saw my first player piano and was hooked. For twenty years while my girls were growing up, I rebuilt and refinished player pianos. About ten years ago, I started cooking. The joke around my house is that I'm a chef, not a cook -- only because a chef doesn't do the dishes. (I do tend to dirty a lot of dishes when I cook.) And this week, I learned that pastrami is really corned beef smoked! Once again, I've been hooked! Since then, I've spent many hours online and even a few days traveling to look at smokers. My next one will be my first one! I have no idea what to buy except that I've narrowed it down to either gas or electric. And, I want to take it with us when we head south in our RV. We're "Snowbirds" and I love to dazzle fellow campers at our potlucks.
