Greetings to everyone.

  1. I just purchased a propane "GOSM" . I have never smoked and would appreciate some advice on smoking some basic meats. I do not want to smoke a turkey just yet but I think I can handle some pre-turkey ribs or salmon. I purchased a few bags of the Jack Daniels smoking chips so thats what I will be working with. Thanks for your time.[​IMG]

    Greetings Pancho, and welcome to the SMF. Be sure and checkout Jeff's 5 day ecoarse, good basic reading/review. Do a search for the 3-2-1 method of smokin' ribs, very good. Salmon can be smokes several ways, with or w/o brining. Invest in at least one meat probe thermometer, as we cook by internal temp and not time. Happy Thanksgiving... and Viva Villa!

    Hola PV ... welcome to SMF! You'll like those JD chips except for the fact that chips burn faster than chunks ... not to worry ... it's only money! [​IMG]
    If there is anything you don't understand ... just keep asking

    Buenos dias!

    Nice to have you on board. And, just in time for T' Day. I too, have a GOSM vertical. It is strait forward and really doesn't have any hidden surprises, so you shouldn't have any trouble. Even though yo are skipping a turkey for now, I would bet you will be ready to tackle it soon enough.

    Once again, welcome to SMF.

    Welcome Pancho -

    Glad to have you aboard! Butts are about the easiest IMHO. Almost can't miss unless you loose patience waiting and waiting and waiting ... and they can get stuck at the same temperature for hours and hours ...

    Chicken is a good first smoke it's quick and not a problem with higher tempes if they get out of control on you.
