    Oh Yes! To plan a weekend around smoke! A few good cigars, a few beers, a few JDs on the rocks, some Jazz, blues or country, a day of smoke, the right frame of mind...and finally enjoying it with friends and family at the end. Nothing Better!!!!!!

    Jeff - That would be the Key West Cigar Factory, it is still there. You can order their quality hand rolled cigars on line at (Keywestcigars.com) They use mostly Dominican, and Honduran tobaco, which, quite honestly, are as good as or maybe even better than Cuban leaves. They do claim that their rollers are immigrants of Cuba. Rememer the cats all over the place? What a great place.....Key West.

    I believe you are correct, PG! I do agree as far as the Honduran and Dominican tobacco's go...........Cuban tobacco is very good, but a bit over-rated.

    If you play Blues Music while your smoking meat, It makes the meat tender!

    Dave, I thought Country/Western music (the old style) made the meat tender!!

    Now THAT'S too funny...I'm with you Monty...fast forward it is. I own my own home and I like the peace and quiet. I've got my dog, who is always happy to see me and never bithces when all I want to do is watch a ball game and drink a few beers... No way I'm gonna screw that up with another walk down the aisle!

    Cheers,
    Brian

    Iv'e been thinking about how Iv'e screwed up some good bbq. Has anyone ever bought a new smokey mountian smoker, and watched the video that came with the smoker? The video shows this guy with the smoker,and the smoker is pouring out smoke like a 55 Buick! Well, thats what I thought I need to do! :) Make it smoke! It took me a while to learn thats NOT how to do it. Just thought Id post this in case there are some newbies out there that think this is the way to good BBQ. Thin blue smoke is the way to go.

    I am inspired by these bbq secrets and will be printing them out and posting them on the sliding glass door that leads to my smoking pit so that everyone will have to read them before coming out to see me sitting on a lawn chair sipping whiskey and watching a bunch of thermometers.

    I've read this thread a dozen times and never could figure out what else needs to be said.

    However, 2 things ain't been said,

    1. The worst moment in my backyard with the smoker is better than the best day at work.

    2. Nothing tastes better with a spicy hot pulled pork sandwich than a 35 degree longneck Miller High Life. 8) (or if you're a teetotaler a frosted glass of sweet tea :D )

    We have lots of Sassafrass trees around these parts, and when the boys were little, my Mom would boil down the roots and make them Sassafrass tea. My oldest (25) still has the urge for some everytime he drinks a root beer. :D

    I gotta agree with you there, Caj. Though Coors Lite is my brand of choice, any smoke session ain't complete without a cooler full of icy cold brew, no matter what flavor... :p

    Cheers,
    Brian

    The only thing better than a cold Bud or a fine single malt scotch neat is a well chilled tall neck home brew. By next spring I will be back at my old hobby of brewin'. An let me tell ya I will have a very popular back yard on hot summer daze!

    One of the best kept secrets of excellent Q is the brew! And I am gonna let tha cat outta tha bag once again! Soon!
    Cheers!

    Well, Brian, I am shooting for an early spring startup. And if I can swing it the way I did back when there will be brew ready by mid May and throughout the entire summer.

    Don't go promising labor till you see the size of my garden!

    Cheers!

    That explains why I was not satisfied with my smoke session from today. I only had a diet coke to drink. I hate to drink and drive, and I was 25 miles away from home when I cooked pulled pork. It is good, just not GREAT.
