I have a low end smoker that I use occasionally to make some fancy pantsy meals that have smokey tastes. It is too small for the big meat events and lacks macho control needs for a more robust event. I just like it. I was out using the gas grill to make some steaks and took a look at the smoker only to discover it had rusted through in the burner box area. Pop rivet and sheet metal time for little smoker. I am not a toss it out type chef when I have skills that translate out of my cooking skills area. Time to get medieval on its buttox and wrap the good metal with new metal and rebuild a burning box. We will see if I merit in that area and get a smoked mac and cheese in the belly of my gal this weekend. Will add my photo or two later.
Craig Gosselin began his food tour at the Ashgrove Inn of Saratoga Springs NY. Starting at a young age, he worked almost all the restaurant positions. After working the chef position in several Saratoga Springs restaurants, Craig bought a small coffee shop in the West Palm Beach area of Florida. He owned and operated that restaurant until it closed. Today, Craig hails from KY and assists the owners in the kitchen at a Louisville tradition called J Gumbos (Clifton Area). Stop by and sample the tastes that bring Louisiana north.View all posts by Chef
