Greetings from NOLA!

  1. Hello everyone! My name is Kevin, and I'm a SMOKER.

    I use a Weber Smokey Mountain for my pork and chicken. I'd love to do a brisket someday, but every time I try it, it comes out tasting like bland beef. I ain't rubbing it right or something.

    I use a Weber grill for grilling. I don't remember the model. I just know that it uses good old American charcoal - just like the smoker.

    I am stationed here in lovely NOLA with the USCG where I serve as a Marine Science Technician. I do a lot of boring stuff like deal with environmental compliance of foreign vessels engaged in trade, safety and security regulations for waterfront facilities, and spill cleanups. 

    When I'm not doing that, I'm a father of one. My son's name is William and he is 1 year old.

    When I'm not doing that, I'm making music. I'm pretty confident about my music. I plan on making a living with it someday.

    In the fall, everything takes a back seat and I watch Alabama football. I secretly also watch Saints football, but don't tell anyone.

    On top of all of that, I smoke and grill at least twice a week. It's my "me," time, and I feel like I've gotten pretty competent at it over the years.

    I look forward to meeting all of you soon. I've got to get off to bed now as I've got a smoke to do early AM. I'll post some pictures!

    Smoke on!

    Welcome to the group Kevin, and thank your service!

    The search feature here works great and if you type brisket in you'll find several days worth of reading.

    Good luck and don't be afraid to share your smokes!
