  1. Wow, I am making this *right now*! Looks fantastic, beautifully photographed and blogged. (I have a blog to, and appreciate how much work it is to upload and place the text and all the photos! Not even talking about taking the photos in the first place.)

      1. It’s definitely on our regular rotation now. I use smoked salt instead of salt and liquid smoke, and pomegranate juice instead of water. We LOVE it, and it’s a great lure to get friends to come over for dinner. Thanks again!
