Spotlight on Diana
DianaOur beloved Office/Sales Manager, Diana, is a valuable member of the SmokinTex team. She says, "My main duty is keeping the guys in line and reminding them who is in charge ha ha!" 
We get many emails from customers commenting on her great Texas accent, her helpful manner and pleasing customer service.
"We have a motto here at SmokinTex, we are certainly not the biggest outfit in the business, but customer service is usually not a function of corporate magnitude. Just as we are unique individuals so are our customers and their needs. So we make sure each order is filled and shipped to the very best of our ability," says Diana.
She says, "The most frequently asked question by our customers is, 'Where do the 2 black pieces of metal go?'" She assures that they are only for packing and shipping. 
Born and raised in McKinney, Texas, where she still lives, Diana loves riding her horse Sammy. She adds, "You gotta love that country living." Her daughter, Jaime, has blessed her with three wonderful grandsons, Lane, 15, Cody, 13, and Levi, 5. Much of her time is spent on soccer fields, basketball courts and football fields. In case you didn't know football is real BIG in Texas.
She smokes at least 10 briskets a month along with 5 or 6 pork shoulders. She says, "We can always think of a special occasion. We never have a problem celebrating happy birthdays, happy anniversaries, happy Tuesdays, happy Sundays and so on."
Diana is looking forward to attending the annual dove hunt in early September. Here is a family favorite snack she makes with the doves.
Bacon Wrapped Dove Breasts
Depending on how good of a shot you are depends on how many snacks you can make.
dove breasts
1/2 bacon slice for each
sliced mushrooms about 1/4" thick
black pepper
tooth picks
1 oz. apple wood chips
Remove meat from the breast bone which is easily peeled off by using your thumb. Cut connective tissue with knife.
Season dove meat lightly with pepper. Lay a mushroom slice on each breast half. Wrap each with half slice of bacon.
Secure bacon wrapped breast with a tooth pick or put several of them on a skewer.
Smoke for about 1 hour at 225 degrees F in your SmokinTex smoker.
They make an excellent little snack to munch on. This makes good eatin'!
Thanks, Diana, for all you do.
