RE: Smoked Chuck Roast

The result was probably very similar to brisket on a smaller scale. Good food! Yeah. Kind of. It's definitely a different cut with different characteristics and even a different flavor. The chuck is more marbled but the brisket has fat caps and the big fat separator between the flat and the point. The chuck is kind of too ugly to slice, but the brisket looks pretty sexy when you slice it. I guess the biggest difference between the two is the scale though. You can probably find the brisket for a buck a pound less, but a whole brisket is such a big cut that it's a more serious investment. I probably spent under $20 for the chuck, but a brisket is at least a $75 cut. You're taking a bigger risk if you mess up a brisket than a smaller roast. Plus the brisket is a bigger time investment (usually 12-14 hours). Briskets are a lot of fun though. Plus there's SO MUCH you can do with the packets of leftovers compared to the chuck. It's all a lot of fun though. I think my favorites are still the pork butts because they're such a no-brainer and the leftovers are so amazing. I parcel mine out into vacuum-sealed pouches and freeze them for later. Two good sized butts will keep us in tacos for months. Smokers are great for so many foods. I usually add a little broth to my leftover roux when I refrigerate it to keep it from turning to cement. What kind of wood did you use for your cook?

RE: The GEO Method and Space Heaters - Thoughts?

I enjoy winter camping. One thing that made a big difference is a Mylar blanket (space blanket) UNDER the bottom sheet of the bed. Much warmer.

RE: Cleveland to Upper Peninsula of Michigan

As has already been stated, the bridge is very safe. (It will be closed to traffic on Labor Day for the Bridge Run). I75 is your quickest route, but good alternatives have already been suggested if you have the time. If you just want a break from I75, you could pick up US23 north of Woodville. This is a nice route along Lake Huron that will still take you to the bridge. Have a good trip! As I said earlier, US23 north of Woodville (or Pinconning) would give you a break from the freeways. (Exit 188 on I75)

RE: Favorite way to skip the interstates?

We get AAA maps of every state we are traveling through. For states where we are spending extended time such as Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, the Dakotas, and Idaho, I carry the Delorme Atlas & Gazeteer for each state. Mine are a few years old but they show (almost) every road in each state. We carry a plastic tote in the back seat of the truck to store all of our maps, camping books, and atlases to keep them in good shape when we are not using them. I also preplan our trips on the computer with Google Maps. The road less taken is more interesting. Stop frequently and actually talk to the locals. They will point out some amazing places to visit. I agree with using the DeLorme state maps. These show an amazing amount of information. I don't believe the interstates help you enjoy the TRIP; only the DESTINATION. Before retirement, we also felt the need to hurry through the 'let's get there!' portion so we could enjoy our destination. After retirement, we found it much more enjoyable to meander. General direction and vague destinations let us enjoy the whole trip.

RE: What size generator to run AC??

... more expensive and more maintenance but combining a pair of 2000w generators is also viable Personally, I would go this route instead of the much heavier 3000+W generators ! Assuming you are reasonably healthy, the bigger unit is my preference. Only lifting is in or out of the truck (it sits just inside the tailgate). After that it pulls around on wheels. The lifting is offset as the bigger units often come with electric start. If you are physically limited, yanking on the pull cord while bent over is likely to be challenging. The Champion 3400 has a nice handle / wheel set up for moving it. I just walk it up a lightweight truck ramp onto the truck. Easy.

RE: What size generator to run AC??

I've had no issues running everything with a Champion 3400 with propane. It is NOT a lightweight machine, but I run it out of the bed of my truck with no problem.

RE: Cooking surfaces and tools, What's your favorite to use!

Another vote for the blackstone. Other than a pretty pattern, does great on just about anything...and try to make eggs or pancakes on a gril. I have no problem cooking eggs, pancakes, or most other conventional foods on my pellet grille. Cast iron can cook about anywhere.
