I got this recipe from one of Nepas previous posts: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/search.php?search=smokies Here they are about 4 hours in. I used my A-maze-N-pellet smoker with apple! I smoked for 7 hours until the IT was 160* and then hung to bloom. Here they are the next day! The taste is FANTASTIC! I think I may have found my favorite stick! They still don't look quite as good as yours Nepas but getting closer!!! Thanks for posting the recipe!!!
