Re: [Slovak-World] Slovak Smoked Meats
- I grew up in the city and never experienced any locally, home-smoked meats. One of my cousins who lives now much more "in the country" (in the exurbs of Cleveland) does have a smokehouse -- I gather that it's all really good, but I don't live in Cleveland so I've never had a chance to savor any of it!

A local TV station just ran a story that one of the
hottest gift items this year is a "Smoker".
One of the first signs that Christmas was coming
when I grew up in the 1950's was the smell at my
grandfather' s house when we went to visit.
His brother-in-law lived a block away and when he
fired up the smoke house everyone in the vicinity
knew there was ham and bacon smoking.
The city of Saint Louis issued a ban on new Smoke
houses built within the city limits last year.
How do the new smokers compare to a traditional
Slovak style smoke house?
Anyone have "Smoke House" memories thay want to share?
Uncle Mike's bacon and ham are meals I remember after
50 years. Must have been good.
