It’s getting cold here in Massachusetts. As fall wains and winter starts up, I will have fewer opportunities to get the smoker out.
The price of beef is really high right now and I don’t want to waste the few remaining times to smoke this year worrying about the price of brisket. I am experimenting with mushrooms, cream cheese, queso, chorizo, bologna, ham, hot dogs, and other cuts of beef.
With the challenges of prices and supply chains, it is a good time to try some new things. You might surppise yourself and you might disocver something new.

I have really loved smoked queso with chorizo as of late. It tastes great, pretty cheap, and an easy template to experiment with. It’s also a crowd pleaser on Taco Tuesday. Try some cubed Velveeta cheese, grated cheddar cheese, green chilis, and a sweet BBQ rub. You’re are going to love.
