Germ bed set up and at temp. F-i-g-h-t-i-n-g urge to start. Just looked back and see on January 26th last year I dropped them in, so only waiting 2 more days instead of until February 1st. Looks like Saturday the starting gun will go off here.
The last 4 days with the boys and the computer off have been fun. Snow, games, airsoft, video gaming, and big fires at night. Feels good to get back in touch with what really matters. Regardless of how bad the rest of life may be, loving family is appreciated for their ability to make one forget.
Grabbed all of this years Douglahs from the freezer and loaded up the smoker with them and Chestnut wood. Plugged it in and popped a breaker. Unplugged one of the garden heaters for 5 minutes to get the smoker rolling. All back to how it was and the smoke is rolling.
