    I usually shower about an hour before the meat is done, however when I don't, our guests have no doubts as to who the Pitmaster is. lol.

    Always shower before serving or eating. Even if I plan to eat outside, I'll shower first. Guests or no guests.

    This phenomenon was never more evident than Sunday. With so many people over and so many cookers to man, I didn't have time to shower and de-smokify myself. While I though the pulled pork tasted very good, the smoke wasn't very evident to me. Yesterday we had leftovers, and the smoke was very evident. The only real difference was a clean nose.

    Smoke a cigar or a pipe along with your cook. I dunno....maybe you could really confuse people.

    Why not - they have bacon body wash.

    If I'm having guests over I will hop in the shower once the food's ready and I don't need to man the smoker anymore. Even if the food's still on the smoker, I don't mind running out quick to grab it after I've showered. Neither myself, my family nor any of my friends are cig smokers, so I don't want to smell like smoke, even if it's wood smoke, at the dinner table if I can help it. But, it does go with the territory and most understand that.

    Hmmm... When I'm smoking meat my ONLY thought is getting the cook right... Taste, moister, temp, flavor. How I smell has never entered my mind.

    If my food blows my guests minds with flavor... They don't care what I smell like!

    I love the smell of wood smoke and don't worry about it. Of course, I shave my head so I don't have the smell in my hair. And I agree with John - actually I think it was Dr. BBQ's book that I have that pointed out that your sense of smokiness is dulled from doing the smoking.

    Agreed... But I stole your funny smiley face flipping burgers. 😎

    I just take a shower once the smoke is gone, about 2 or 3 hours into the cook.

    I guess I fail to see the problem of smelling like a campfire myself... I LOVE that smell. But yeah, I smell like that too.

    Is it just me, or is smelling like somebody who sat in front of an intense campfire all day, a problem? I love to smoke meats for my family and friends, but can't avoid smelling like a overly-smoked brisket myself. Other than taking at least a couple showers throughout the process, any suggestions?
