    Nice Job . . . so would you call that hot smoke? as everyone else mentioned, your hand cut is impressive.  I am planning another batch of homemade bacon once the weather cools down in fall . . I got cold smoke with the AMS unit in my BGE 
    Yeah...definitely wouldn't be cold smoked.  The smoke flavor is acceptable and it definitely is the best Bacon I've eaten.  I have some ideas to keep the temp down next time.  
    I have used a very small fire in a coffee can in the bottom of the Egg. Seems to work pretty well.

    @RiverDoc Did you test that Yeti ice yet?
    I went to pick up some Yeti Ice this morning but they were out of stock. They had something there that caught my eye. It was called Alaskan Artic Ice. It was 5 pounds, (one pound heavier than Yeti) and about 12 bucks cheaper. I have never tried it so I can't vouch for how it works. I can't help but to wonder if it's basically the same stuff though. Just thought I would share. 
    Artic Ice is awesome. A superior product in my mind. I have been very impressed with the 2 five pound units I bought. It's the same concept as Yeti but a better execution.

    They have a few different versions that all perform differently. It's worth a quick visit to their website to see which one is best for you. I like Alaska. They are also available on Amazon Prime.

    We went and tried a few mattresses today.  We narrowed it down to the firmest Tempur in the store.  It wasn't the most expensive but rather on the cheaper end of the Tempur spectrum.  
    And wouldn't you know it, we have nearly talked ourselves into the head-up / feet-up option for the mattress.  I am still a little sticker shocked but I have a lot of problems sleeping and I just felt good IN this bed. 
    We haven't pulled the trigger just yet but I will keep digging around and probably decide in a week or two.  It is just so hard to spend that much money for me right now.  

    You won't regret it.

    We have had the least expensive Tempurpedic for 9 years and it still feels like it's brand new. It is probably the best thing we have purchased. I highly recommend it. It cut my back and neck trouble by 75% immediately. Only drawback is that it sucks when I have to sleep on anything else. That mattress and my BGE are really the only two things I recommend to people.
