I have grand plans to fire up my smoker tomorrow, but only have a couple pounds of stuff to put in. If you want to smoke some meats, feel free to drop me a note and plan on coming by tomorrow early-afternoon.
We can hang out with beers in the afternoon while meat soaks up tasty flavor! Nom.
(I suggest an overnight brine to prep it.)

beah and I have a pile of meat in the freezer, but neither of us know much about smoking, so I'm not sure if there's anything suitable to bring. Unless it's possible to smoke a brisket. Hmm. Actually, we have spare ribs and short ribs that might smoke well. Of course, they're frozen solid at the moment, so I suppose I'd better brine now, if those are worth bringing. What time were you thinking of?

Takes at least an hour or three to smoke, and this is cold smoking so it's really just adding flavor. Take 'em home and roast them in the oven to actually cook them.

I wouldn't bother brining pork ribs, maybe the spare ribs though. Do some googling.

Thinking early afternoon-ish, almost certainly no earlier than noon. Let me know if you wanna come by and I'll call or email when I have a better time guestimate.

Looks like brining won't make much difference for cold smoking. I'm defrosting the ribs tonight and there are a couple cheeses in the firdge I might be interested in bringing over too. (Mmm, smoked cheese) Let us know as the schedule develops. :-)

Sadly, I'm going to have to bail. I seem to have come down with something, so it's a day flat on the couch for me. :-(

well golly!

I have to be at my house around 5pm to prep for Factory Seconds shenanigans, but this sounds like a great way to pass the time. I do not have meats... I mayhap have some garlic or some tofu which might have fun in a smoker?

So we have family obligations this morning/early afternoon, hence me taking the day off, but we'll ping you when we're home to see if people are still around to be sociable. Rumor is that the weather is going to go south, but we'll see! =)
