Same here. I just finished a deer and a brisket on the smoker. I may skip thanksgiving weekend, but I'm sure the following weekend I'll be rolling smoke! It may be cold outside, but it is always warm by the smoker!!

I'm sure enjoying it down here this winter. Everybody should be able to move south for 5 months and then go back to a place like West Michigan. Of course if we all did that then the housing prices would be thru the roof and there'd be no room.

I'm with you RUB, We play all year round down here, probably be out in the Gulf 30 miles fishing on Saturday and smoking the catch on Sunday or perhaps Golf on Saturday and smoking ribs on Sunday, just can't decide..

No stopping for us for a bit -- a contest in two weeks, then a double over New Year's. Half of me is quavering, "But we didn't cook this week!" and the other half is going "Make it stoooooppppp....!"
Don't practice until you get it right; practice until you can't get it wrong.
Don't overthink or undercook.
