Hard boiled eggs go good with boiled cabbage, broccoli, and cheap beer...

Started 10 pounds of Maple/Pepper/Rum bacon curing. Except the maple sugar is MIA (I suspect my MIL with the sweet tooth), so it's Brown Sugar/Pepper/Rum bacon.

What kind of wood? Who split it? Looks good, but wouldn't last more than a couple of weeks here.

Mesquite. And this is Arizona.

We do need to pick up another cord, or maybe two. The next batch will be cedar, if we get it from the same source.

I exaggerated a little when I said it would only last a couple of weeks here! I'm sure you have thought of this, but you could saw/split some of that mesquite into smaller chunks to use in your smoker(s). Up here, we have to buy that in a (expensive!) bag. I have cut some of my apple wood into small chunks for BBQing and such.

Some of it will certainly be used in the smoker. And we have two apple trees to prune this winter.
