    Get a smoker and make your own. There are a couple of decent BBQ restaurants out here where I'm at, but every time I go to one of them, my wife and I end up saying we could have done it better ourselves. So now, instead of going and paying through the nose for BBQ (crazy how cheap meats cost so much at a BBQ joint), I make my own and it's a million times better. Had ribs a few weeks ago, and am going to be doing a brisket in the near future. Plus I really enjoy tinkering with the flues to keep the heat in the range I smoke at.

    Blue Ribbon in Newton was a mecca for me when one of my buddies lived down the street. Got burnt ends from them pretty much every time. So good.

    I used to with an old roommate, my current apartment doesn't allow for it at all. I'm looking to buy in the next year or two and a good backyard/patio setup (for grill, smoker, and fire pit) is #2 on my list after an open kitchen.

    I miss the process almost as much as the food.

    I always overcook pork. Not today, Satan.

    Spice rubbed pork tenderloin, cheesy potatoes and fresh grilled haricot verts from Wilson Farms

    We have a heat wave here in the PNW currently, 100 yesterday, currently 95 but it is expected to be 100, then a few lower 90s during the week so I made a gigantic Mexican ceviche with mango and papaya in a large bowl. It has avocado, mango, papaya, anaheim pepper, cucumber, red onion, heirloom tomatoes, cilantro, greenland shrimps (you guys have them in New England and in Canada) and scampi tails, the lower one in the pic is a scampi and the upper a shrimp. Then lots of freshly squeezed limes and then I add a couple of tbls of sweet thai chili to get a tiny sweet flavor.

    It's the spare 12-14 hours needed to keep an eye on the smoker that I currently don't have.

    *It's the 12-14 hours I don't have... I have the smoker.

    I hear you on that. I don't smoke every weekend, but rather every few. It's also on the weekends when I'm typically doing yard work and home projects so I'm not going anywhere and I have the time. I have smoked quite a bit since the pandemic started because I've been working from home.

    Just had takeout from Nancy Changs in Worcester. I forget how good it is and then I have it and remember why I love that place.

    Tonight I made filet mignons cooked medium rare with a rosemary chimichurri and an herbed summer squash and potato torte. Very fresh!

    I'm with you Lonnie. I like messing with the flues on my old Weber Smokey Mountain too. If you've got the money and don't want the hassle, you can go out and get one of those fancy pellet smokers, but that's cheating in my book. The stuff I'm making now is just as good, if not better than anything I get at my local BBQ joint.

    Just got back from Alaska a week ago and I've got a ton of fresh caught salmon. Some of that is hitting the smoker this weekend.

    That's awesome! I have a WSM as well and it's a blast to play around with it. I work with a guy that has an electric smoker and even he admits it's cheating, but he's too lazy to pay attention to a manual smoker...lol

    Made chicken thighs a little differently last night. Seasoned the heck out of them. S n P, garlic and onion salt, chili powder, italian season, and lots of Flavor Gods Chipotle. Seared them in a cast iron pan and removed them. Added diced onions, uncooked brown rice, almost a whole 14 oz can chicken stock, more S n P and let that simmer down for 5-10. Gently laid the chicken over the top, covered the cast iron tight with foil and convection baked it for a half hour at 400. Added buttered corn after.

    Some of the better chicken I've made, and very easy. It also chicken-ed up the rice and was delicious.
