    Your preachin to the choir here BP! But it,s getting harder and harder to come up with something new. But I'll keep trying. I think people get to hung up on smoking meat sometimes. There are many ways to cook with pellets. Think of smoke as a condiment, not a ingredient. Like you say..let the imagination run wild.

    That is the biggest reason I haven't entered the contests as often as I would have liked. I always like to cook something at least a little outside-the-box. While I absolutely love all the cooks other people have been doing, it is those people that "throw us a curve" with at least one part of a meal that catches my attention. You know the ones that you say to yourself, "Why didn't I think of that?" or "Wow, what a different approach!" Like Rick said, "Think of smoke as a condiment, not a ingredient."
