Greetings from West Texas!

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by preacher238, Jun 6, 2013.

  1. I just got into smoking meats about 5-6 months ago.  I currently own a Outdoor Gourmet Triton Gas/Charcoal/offset firebox grill (the Academy Summer special...LOL!)

    I bought it last summer, but only used the charcoal and gas grills until about 6 months ago when I decided to try smoking a brisket.  I did a lot of research, and it actually turned out pretty good..but not perfect, so I was hooked!!  Since then, I have smoked ribs, chicken, sausage, and even more brisket.  Yep..I am addicted!!!  Gonna try a pork butt in a couple of weeks.  We shall see how it turns out.

    As for me, I am a retired USAF dude...24 1/2 years worth.  Enjoyed it, but after my last deployment...most of the time spent outside the wire in Iraq, it was time to call it quits.  War is a young man's game, and I am no longer a young man!  I retired here in San Angelo, and now hold a civilian job, helping veterans get treatment for PTSD.  And I also am the assistant pastor at a church here in town.  So I spend lots of time practicing grilling/smoking at our potlucks!  LOL....

    Anyway, happy to be hear.  Glad I found this place!

    Greeting Preacherman, Thank you for your service.

    These people are the most amazing source of help and inspiration. I find something new to try constantly, be it a wood, a spice, or I just saw today, smoked eggs...... I tell you they make it all look so easy, and will help you, when you find its easy because they have been doing it so well for so long.

    You found a great spot to get comfortable.

    BTW I have eaten many a steak at Zintner's. Thats sure pretty country, just goes to show you what all of Texas would look like if they had water!
