I am leaving for the lake tomorrow morning, I'll be gone 'till Monday. No salmon there... but if I hit Sam's Club on the way there... it will feel pretty close to Alaskan heaven once I fire up the grill!

If going to the lake, wood fire might be closer??

If I had a source of cheap hardwood, I would than use that I think. But this charcoal is not expensive, a bag lasts me for several fires. And I also buy chips: apple, hickory, cherry and other. Smoke fish mainly.
On a regular Weber grill and cheap smoker. One day, I will graduate to a seperate fire box and smoker.
M-m, my own smoked sausage, ham.

HMMM .... We are looking to move to Wasilla area. We currently own 3 vehicles so planned to sell one off before coming up. From the sound of this I almost wonder if it would be worth taking all 3 up with us...(truck for utility, Ford freestyle for when I want 4wd and hauling lots of passengers or cargo, Toyota Corolla for good gas mileage for day to day commute when weather is not bad.)

It's not a bad idea to do so, especially if you might end up buying one.
