You are well ahead of me.  I am eating tuna sandwiches just in a pita.  Not real exciting on my end.

Furu, I hate to say it, but ever since I saw your first post somewhere else,  to this day all that comes to mind is fu-man-cho!
 I mean no disrespect, just saying , you know, and well the wife did it not me, and it was good, all done, but the sink now,, then back down to the basement for building more board games,, corn bag ones for one of Christy's friends' husband's Christmas present,

That is kind of funny. 
I came up with Furu quite some time back as it is a Norwegian word for pine or pine tree.  Since I have a tie to Norway and the forest  I decided to use a Norwegian word.

lol I love me some grits and I don't care where they come from!

Wife and daughter will be making a mess of Christmas cookies soon and I can't wait.  I'm fat enough and don't need any but by golly they're a weakness of mine and I pig out once a year.  I'll try to sweat them off next season (spring,summer, fall).  I don't do much outside in the winter if I can help it.  Shop work and busy work mostly if all goes well...

O.K., so until I get a data base of photos, the only useful tool will be the imagination of the reader..  I'm making beef vegetable soup/stew, still working out the kinks in the approach,  and all the while my wife just baked a cake for the birthday party in a few days,  and is working on a cheese cake,,and I also have some venison back loins thawing out, and working on my approach for this,, so, yum! and yum!  and tummy tum tum!  Merry Christmas you all!

d - you rascal!  You just made my belly grumble!  I'm waiting on supper at the moment - hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls and baked, along with seasoned baked french fries.  Simple, easy and pretty good.  The dogs are those Gwaltney chicken dogs that taste more like a hot dog than most of the other regular ones and are surprisingly good for you.

I wet cure it.... soak it in a mixture of 1 gallon water, 1 1/2 cups Kosher salt (may reduce that to 1 cup), 6 tsp Instacure #1, and 2 packed cups dark brown sugar. Mix till dissolved, soak about a week (depending on size of ham). Remove from liquid, rinse, pat dry, put it in the fridge UNCOVERED overnight. Hot smoke it around 250-275 degrees for 2 hours, then glaze with brownsugar/orange juice/garlic about 1-1 1/2 cup brown sugar and just enough orange juice to make a thick paste, garlic to taste... I like lots of it. Return to smoker till you get an internal temperature of 160.. then eat or cool and refrigerate for later..
