Baptized by Smoke!

  1. Good Evening Folks!

    Might as well jump in with both feet, since I have been lurking here just before Christmas...

    I am Duane and I live in the the Raleigh Durham area of North Carolina. I am married, and have been for 25 years (to the same woman) and have a freshman daughter who attends the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

    Before today, I was a complete newby to smoking meats, but after a generous gift from a vendor friend of mine, I have now been baptized in smoke. I am the owner of a 40" MES with absolutley no mods at this point.

    I have been on this site almost daily since just before Christmas, and have taken all 5 e-courses offered by Jeff.  I downloaded and successfully used both his rib rub and sauce recipes today with great success. I have to admit, that meat was pretty darn good, and I couldn't have done a better job (at least in my newby opinion). 

    I know, I know, with no pictures, it really didn't happen, but my belly, my wife, daughter and her boyfriend will all attest what a great meal we just finished. I promise there will be more pictures in the future.

    Well, that's about it for me.... I look forward to gaining more information from all of the experts here, and hope to contribute what I can.

    So I will thank you all now for what I have learned from you this far, and what I will gain going forward.

  2. [​IMG]   Good evening and welcome to the forum, from a cloudy, rainy and cold day here in East Texas. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about  everything. OK we will let you slide this time, but next smoke PICTURES !
