thesemicullen replied to your post: The downside of making head cheese all day
You know, there are plenty of folks out there who throw picnic or Boston roasts on the smoker frozen solid with results just as good as thawed. In fact, they say they get better smoke rings.
My days of tending a smoker all day may be on hiatus. I like being married with a 2 year old, and sacrifices must be made for the sake of familial happiness (I KNOW you get it). As much as I love my wood-fired smoker, I need to invest in an electric one that I can set and forget for a few hours.
