Ron, thanx for your prompt response.
Well, I was prepared with parchment paper to address the puncture issue, but no matter. If I were looking to smoke a rib roast, I’d want the bone, but for a few steaks, it will be fine. Still, like those “Cowboys”.
The fridge is a full size 19 cubic footer. He USES it for beer, but it seems ideal for this effort. It has wire racks so the air should circulate fine. Humidity may be a factor, but I have no way to test it, presently, and as soon as my bags arrive, in the fridge it will go. We have tested the temp for a few days and it is always in the 34-38 degree zone. Will I need a fan, or a desiccant of some sort?
