Well, I heard that it is true of neighbors that catch a wiff of the amazing aromas of a smoke in progress. In my case.....on my first smoke.....there were no neighbors peeking out through the bushes and such, but a funny thing happened when I went to reheat (from frozen) my amazing first batch of ribs.... at work. They came all right! They ALL smelled my babies as they were warming up in the microwave and were awestruck by the smell. Poor suckers. Sucks to be them! ROFL!!
