Done grillin'!

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by flintlock, Jun 8, 2009.

  1. Hi folks, I saw the History Channel's history of barbeque on Friday, bought a Brinkman Smoker the next day and will season the cooker this week. First on my list is a big, fat, thick chuck roast, then ribs of course, then who knows? Any tips on sauce? How about flavored chips? I bought Kingsford "competition" briquets and some hicory chips. Really don't know how to get started. Could use some advice. Thanks, Flintlock

    Welcome Flintlock! The best info I can give ya is to sit down for about 16 hours and read the forums about charcoal smokers and the beef section, there's tons of info to take in. That will get ya headed in the right direction.. enjoy!!

    You should check out the free 5day ecourse on the left hand side of the page. Once you have that done. ( can be read in less than an hour ) You will need a rub for the meat. http://www.smoking-meat.com/barbecue-rubs.html

    Pick your cut of beef and viola! Yer on the way!!

    Ask us any and all questions cause we love to answer. In payment you can post some qview ( pictures ) Which we love to see. Especially of a persons first smoke. The beauty of low and slow is You have time to ask questions as the smoke progresses and We have time to answer long before the meat is on the table.

    Welcome to the SMF by the way. [​IMG]

    Good luck.

    I typically recommend starting with chicken and sausage (maybe a fatty too) simply because they only take a couple hours or so.

    My only advice would be to either mix the hickory with a fruit wood or make sure u dont use to much of it, hickory can tend to take over and is mostly the type of wood that oversmokes a piece of meat (been there done that) Welcome and make sure you get some pics !! [​IMG]
