As I want to save twinsfan's mesquite as long as possible, and my apple wood is just too mild on beef, I'll try beech next (I just got two small chunks from a neighbor a few days ago).
But right now I am working on an apple cobbler, which is to be served with self-made vanilla ice cream (made of extremely precious Tahitian vanilla) for dinner. The self made rye is also in the works, but I don't know if it is going to make it till dinner time. So more pr0n to follow soon.
