Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe came from Mel Smith. Mel lived next door to John, Michael and I when we first moved back to Montana. Mel was also Ross's first cousin from his mom's side of the family.
Mel was a very colorful character, who had many tales to tell. He had lived his whole life in SW Montana and knew the country like the back of his hand.
