An unexpected prezzie arrived at my desk yesterday: my very own smoker! Which is funny because just last week I was rambling on about how I wanted to smoke my own my meat. It’s electric, so no open flames or burning coals, thankfully. The question remains: do I attempt to use it inside my apartment or snake a power-cord out onto the fire escape? Or up to the roof? Plus, there’s the excitement of what do I smoke first! Stay tuned – my new toy should make for a fragrant fall weekend.
