  1. Hi all,
    After years of experimenting and mostly doing it wrong, I stumbled upon these forums and began my journey into the wonderful world of smoke.
    Being new at this but not wanting to completely skimp on substandard equipment, I picked up a propane Brinkman smoker last week and have smoked everything but my dachshund.

    So far, I've dona a decent (not great) brisket, fantastic hickory smoked chicken, some ABTs, and a version of BBQ Engineer's 'Buffalo Chicken Wing Fattie':
    I made 2 & took them to my VFW. I hope there's no war hero heart attacks tonight. [​IMG]

    Who I am: Pennsyltuckian, USAF Vet, 4x4 enthusiast, meatitarian.

    Look forward to learning from all of you.

    Go meat.

    Hey SecretSquirrel,

    I am honored that you would try the buffalo chicken wing fattie. Welcome to the SMF. It sounds like you bring some good skills to the group and will fit right in. Ask away, post away, smoke away...it is a great place to be!

    Remember, to eat meat is an instinct, to not eat meat is a choice, and my instincts are pretty strong!

    On Edit: Sweet looking truck pics BTW!!!
