I'm testing out a new Jamaican jerk rub on a batch of nice, thick loin chops. Gonna smoke them for an hour or so, with a chunk of apple, then a quick sear at the very end.

DOH! Late entry.

Had a couple of big t-bones on last night. Came out yummy. A little dry (still working on technique), but yummy nonetheless. :)

I'm in the same boat, Sqeezy. My wife doesn't care for the smoke flavour, but loves beer can chicken off the gasser. When I do chicken this way I usually do 3 birds and freeze 2 of them. She loves it.
Weird, eh? :lol:

Do the frozen ones reheat well? I think they would lose something ....

You're right that is weird ... :)

I think it loses some of the flavour and moisture when it freezes, but my wife doesn't seem to mind. She has a very peculiar diet to begin with, due to a medical condition. I prefer to get a good feed when it comes off the grill, but then leave the rest for her to deal with over the next week or so.
