A "smoker" in the family

Yes, we have a "smoker" in the family!! But we are happy about it! My DIL bought my son a smoker for Father's Day and Darrin has been 'smoking' up a storm!
I think this plate looks like something from Gourmet magazine! This is what Darrin made yesterday for dinner and were joined by Auntie and Uncle Jeff.
When I called last night, all I could hear was Nick talking about "turkey legs" and everyone else saying how good the food was!

Here's what Darrin wrote in his email he sent along with the pics!
"So this weekend, we thought we would keep it on the lighter Side…so the Turkey Breast hit the Smoker for some good old fashion slow cooking. I used some Ginger Ale to soak the Turkey Breast; then some nice sweet season and let the smoke/slow cooking do the rest…Yes, it turned out very nice and tender as I thought it would. Nick wanted some Chicken Legs, so we added the legs to the batch and added some honey glaze…Wow!"
How good does this look!

Yes I have been beading but no pics yet. I'm trying to finish up one of the 'Twins' and I'm now ready for the binding. To be perfectly honest, my hands have not been co-operating lately but I'm trying not to complain. I could be in worse shape...just have to keep everything moving. I did go on my bike ride Sat. but it's already 77 @ 7:15 a.m. so no bike ride for me today! Thursday, I'm meeting my Florida friend, Carol, to do some shopping! We always have a good day and I'm looking forward to getting together. This week we had dinner with Carol & Tony twice and met yesterday to go to a graduation party. It's almost like we're in Florida!


  1. Your smoked food looks wonderful! I love my smoker -- the neighbors, not so much ;-) -- but I do all kinds of stuff -- tomatoes, corn, chicken, salmon, and I'm going to be smoking some salt next time I get it out!

  2. Yum! I'm not familiar with using a smoker, but this looks so good. Enjoy.

  3. My hubby is a smoker Robbie. we eat all kinds of smoked things. Yummy!

  4. I'd love to give the boys a smoker for the mackrel they catch in the summer. Love the pear collagraph prints you made - I use (not enough!)a mangle formerly used to wring water out of sheets - the rollers don't meet evenly all over, tho I love the idea of a car tyre!
