As Pags said, thanks to all for the tips, hints, guidance, as well as the camaraderie. There's a very solid group of members on the forum.
I had great plans and was fully stocked and prepared to double smoke a ham for Christmas, prime rib for New Years Eve, and Yukon River salmon as an appetizer for both meals. A few things fell into place and we made a very last minute decision to spend the Holidays in Spain. My wife, daughter, and I arrived in Madrid yesterday morning where we'll be celebrating with friends until Dec. 26. Then, it's off to Mallorca for New Years. From there to Barcelona for a couple days before returning to the States.
