    I was in Sam's club today and spotted a boneless, flat "slicing" ham, so had to give it a try.  Never seen one that way, so it's gonna be a new experience.  It is pre cooked, and at about 4 inches thick it won't take long in the smoker

    I have 10 pounds of highly modified Bear's beef logs in the smoke today[​IMG]

    I got outvoted on smoking Christmas dinner but will be serving lots of my smoked goodies Christmas eve. Sliced buckboard bacon, turkey pastrami, venison sausage, smoked cheese, and home made mustard. I do get to smoke a turkey New Years day and watch the Rose Bowl. Go Ducks!

    Yea, you have to try making some. It's pretty simple to do.

    Done it, but I can't believe I've not smoked any in a while, so gotta remedy that, and soon!

    I'll be in the dominican republic cooking up puerco asada, roast pig on a spit. The smoke and heat from the open pit fire is great. Thats kind of traditional holiday fare down there, but I have an offset stick burner at my place down there and I'll smoke some brined chickens, fresh caught fish, and maybe a side. The whole area kind of comes together down there and for the first time in years I'll be joining in.
     
  9. I too was outvoted. I will be doing a deep fried turkey instead of smoked for Christmas dinner. However, I'm going to smoke a duck this week for sure. Can't wait! Maybe even try duck pastrami.

    been raining/misting/raining here all day making it hard to control the heat in my old New Braunfels.  Forecast here is sunny and mid to upper 50's Christmas day.  Thinking I'll get the smoking done early and do a couple hours of deer hunting up behind the house with the smoke pole (Muzzle loader)

    No smoking for me either! However last night I smoked Driedsticks pretzels and tonight it's Scarbelly's sweet spicy nuts for our holiday gift baskets. Then tomorrow Bear's caseless snack sticks. I'm going to pick up a 3-4 bone prime rib for New Years. Not going to smoke it, going to do the salt pack in the Dutch Oven. Probably will do Smokey Au Jus for that.
