  3. Oh Boy, What a nugget, now I know how the gold rush settlers felt out on the trail. another great one for the REC TEC smoker. can’t wait to try. THANK YOU !!

  4. I tried this recipe but substituted the pineapple and cherries with fresh razzberrys. About 1 per square inch. Really good flavor with a nice tart contrast to the caramelish brown sugar and butter.

    Thanks for posting Malcolm
