If You Are Not Smoking You Are Not Cooking

Aug 30, 2008
Some people really love to cook, and there are some that really love to smoke. Some people believe that if you can cook it you can also smoke it. They will build smoke houses for the sole purpose of smoking hams. They will build portable smokers for you to smoke your chicken or turkey. Some will smoke different kinds of fish. They will even use different kinds of seasonings to spice up these foods.

Smoked turkey is fast becoming the main dish on Thanksgiving Day instead of your regular turkey and stuffing dinner. Smoked hams are also becoming a very popular dish. Smoked salmon is a very popular fish dish. Watch out for buying this kind of fish out of season as it could make you very sick. Depending on the severity, it even may put you in the hospital.

They will also use different types of wood to smoke these different foods. It also depends on where in the United States they are or what part of the world they are in as to what types of food they smoke. Some people just cook. They will go to school to become the world's greatest chefs. Some just go because they want to be nothing more than a normal cook. They want to cook for schools, nursing homes, hospitals, or just to say that they went to cooking school.

When you go to a cooking school, instructors and chefs, obviously, teach you how to cook. They teach you the right ingredients to use in your dishes and the right spices for a great tasting dinner. They also teach you what pans to use and what temperature to set your burner on to make sure that you don't burn or scorch your food.

They will teach you how to follow a recipe and teach you the little short cuts they take. They can teach you how to whip up the fluffiest omelets, the lightest cakes, or the smoothest, most moist brownies. They will already have the best pans and the proper utensils. They will also have several sets of the best knives, and several of different styles of very excellent mixers. All of this so they can get your juices smoking to start cooking.

So get into the kitchen and start making the magic that makes holidays, friends , family worth having. Food is the one common bond that plays such an important roll in our lives, and the one who makes the magic is the place where all of these fond memories take place, so suit up and get the fires burning.
