Thats cute when i took my boys fishing, when they were younger, I would clean the fish, make a brine of lawry's seasoning salt and sugar, with a little soy sauce, and soak the fish overnight in that, then smoke it, I bought a little chief smoker at wallmart and some hickory and apple wood, i mixed the apple wood and hickory half and half, the apple wood has a sweetness to it, we used to live in the foothills, and had bears, skunks, racoons, rattle snakes, deer, mountain lions, you name it, come down and visit , when I made that smoke fish, the racoons would come over for a visit, and for some fresh smoked trout :p those racoon were big too, they loved my smoked trout, as much as i did take care, Chellie

Great night for skunk watching. I had one come up and take a chicken bone out of my hand. Hot wings. Then came and took a piece of snickers from between my fingers. Sweet tooth !.

Got glue drying on Blue Baby 41".

I like orange wood to smoke with. Nut wood is good also. Apple is good but hickory is to strong for my taste.

Happy Daze

what kind of nut wood.My neighbor has an orange tree hmmm.I agree hickory is not only strong but slightly bitter but not as bitter as mesquite.Trout is my prefered fish but last time i did lean (not too fatty) catfish and i liked it too.Chellie i smoke my fish in a weber old style bar b que just have to use 6 or less charcoal and replace them every hour.Oh and 366$ sounds affordable to power a 20 $ foamie that must be a 40 - 60 sized brushless motor huh.I sure hope the dam thing flies i've wanted to model the B 2 for a long time.I did a 60 inch one 2 years ago but never flew it. its a long story i'll tell ya sometime .go to the other scrath built foamy thread and read my complete blog on the build of this one .Oh and your planes are really awesome Chellie t. c.

I used some pecan that I liked real well. Peach is lots like apple = (great)
Tried most all wood but orange is my fav.

Chellie ??? What kind of Xtals did you use in your Corona receivers ? And if you still have them send me an email. I'm needing a 6 channel Corona or something as good at a steal. I have one of the new Corona rec's that don't use a xtal but havn't fired it up yet. Will put it in the B B 41" when its done. I spend to much time playing with the skunks. Ha !

Those planes are amazing Crashalott. The Christen Eagle sure looks pretty! Is it hard to build foamies from scratch or relatively straight forward? I want to try my hand at it sometime soon .

Well i done the Maiden this mourning and boy the first flight was wild. The second flight after adjusting the right aileron was a little better but still wanted to bank left too much. I figured i didn't have enough eng. thrust so i redone the mount and gave her more right thrust. It should be close now. I will try again in the mourning if the wind is down.
