    Smoking pork in cold weather

    Buy a reflective insulation roll. Use some over the smoking chamber (not the fire box..) and the rest of it around the house the savings will pay for itself.

    Japanese steel - how to take care of it?

    Takeda makes some great knives. Try a baking soda slurry rub down. Also 3M 3000 grit wet dry automotive sandpaper to take off some rust as it shows up.
