Saw this on the Internet and had to try it. My smoker needed a day off. My daughter made the pasta salad Cut at an angle in corkscrew fashion Sprinkle with rub. Get it in the cracks. It is easier if one person gently pulls each end while the other sprinkles Do we ever tire of looking at food? Yeah, didn't think so I used ConYeager Sweet Onion hamburger mix for the burgers. ConYeager has an awesome selection of spices, sausage making supplies and grilling stuff. I smoked this cheddar cheese, btw, but I must confess that I couldn't wait 4 full weeks for it to mellow. It's still quite strong. My daughter made the pasta salad. Nice compliment. Pasta spirals, tomatoes, asiago cheese, Parmesan, olives, EVVO, balsamic vinegar, parsley, pepperoni, genoa salami, red & green pepper. Very good.
