Tuna Salad Sandwich

Okay, take some tuna (preferably solid white), add a little Vegenaise, Salt, Pepper, Celery Seed, Dill weed and diced zesty dill pickles. Mix it all together and put it on toasted seedy bread (I really like "15 perfect grains" from Green Earth Baking). Top it with a fresh herb salad mix with a dill pickle on the side and you have a great lunch.

Smoked Steelhead


First you catch a little fish


Then you fillet and brine a fish

Hang out and enjoy the smoke rolling. Normaly I would smoke fish with Alder but this time I used Hickory and it was delightful.


If you are lucky there is some left over for a photo...

Smoke Roasted Pork Loin

First, select a long play record. This one by Kerry Livgren came out in 1980 and featured Steve Walsh, Phil Ehart and Robbie Steinhardt as well as some vocals by Ronnie James Dio.



Cut up some onions

Saute in olive oil. When carmelized, add chopped rinsed Kale and cook down.

Take a ugly heirloom tomato. Cut it up. Add a little salt and pepper to taste and toss with fresh basil.

Pull the pork loin off the smoker and let it rest.

Eat a delicious dinner of smoked roasted Pork Loin with steamed Baby Reds, Heirloom Tomato Salad and Kale & Onions
