When I retired, I purchased a Bradley Smoker. I have really enjoyed it. As I got used to using it, I had to try my hand at Montreal Smoked Meat. I love going to Schwartz’s when I go to Montreal and what they call Montreal Smoked Meat in the supermarket is not even close. Continue reading “Healthy” Montreal Smoked Meat
