Before I reluctantly moved to WI., I do not recall any bad chow cooked in the high country over a coniferous fire, not that I would use it to smoke now, but it did not suck!

Yeah we're pretty limited on our smoking wood. Alder is about the most plentiful but I really only like it for fish. Other meats I like to use fruit wood.

I use a mix of Cherry and Pecan for everything. I smoked some bacon with Alder and it came out very nice.

It went well. So far everyone has been really cool. There were 48 teams. I only had one brisket sample that was tough and cold. I wouldn't have turned it in.


Had some very good ribs. Found out I like my pork belly burnt ends better than brisket burnt ends.


Free BBQ and I get to have an opinion about it so win win.

Probably my last meal on the woodstove this year and I am unemployed right now and too soon for garden produce so I cooked a meal with weeds from the yard. Only dandelion and plantain available right now, with rice and venison sausage. I do not need a phuquing grocery store!

Stop taking care of yourself like that. It's the governments' job to feed, house and clothe you. Deplorable.

I have a Marine buddy that lives out here that would go on the "fend for yourself" challenge every year, which consisted only eating what he found, grew, or killed, with the exception made for beer. This ended a few years ago after he ended up in the ER after eating some bad coral mushrooms...

Coral shrooms aren't among my favorites, cooked like a blooming onion isn't bad, but I usually pick them for folks who like that woody whole foods, soccer mommy earthy taste...stay white are you're usually good to go. Red coral or when the coral is dated and turns yellowish, often pulpy to the touch is a pass when I'm out nosing around. They do have a pronounced laxative effect is some folks....oysters are my favorites of all time, chantrelles run a close second.

I know, GS dude! Poor, poor, deplorable me! I ate a whole pan of dandelions, cleaned me out pretty good later! I like purslane, mallow, curly dock, in my chow but they are not up yet!

I have eaten corals only a few times, mostly out west. Did not care for them, mostly ate chanterelles, and king boletes . My skills are a bit rusty this year , but I have perused and tasted most of the edibles in this area, quite the cornucopia if one can take the time.

Morels are my favorite.

Don't get me wrong, morels are great...but done right, and for sheer versatility--the oyster gets my vote every time. Throw them in some Asian stir fry with a spicy/sweet sauce, their meatiness steals the show. I've done some lion's mane, again...earthy as hell but has some valuable medicinal purposes--hen and chicken of the woods, cooked any way possible is pretty damn tasty. Lobster, turkey tail and a few other spores aren't worth my time as their taste doesn't suit my palate--but to each their own.

I have not found chicken of the woods here yet, heard they are tasty and I have never eaten the oyster variety either.

Oysters and lion's mane are my favorites, and I'm *always* on the lookout for them out in the woods. Wouldn't have expected to find other mushroom hunters here, but I'm glad I'm not alone.
