Hello from California!

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by rocapps, Aug 15, 2009.

  1. Hi Guys, been following the forum for quite a while - learning from your experience, and trying out new recipes. Thought I should finally introduce myself.

    My name is Robert, and I'm from Northern California. Though I'm no novice behind a grill, I recently ventured into the area of smoking meats. I picked up a Traeger Pro 124 w/ the 180 Degree Digital Controller about a month ago, and now the gas grill is gathered cobwebs [​IMG]

    The Traeger during it's first smoke!

    So far, it has been a great pit, have made several racks of ribs, canadian bacon, and just put my first Pastrami on the Traeger (QView to come).

    My first pork spare ribs!

    Picked up the BBQ bug while traveling about in Texas and the South, can't wait to try out some new recipes and techniques!

    See you all around the board!

    First off welcome to SMF. You'll like it here cause there are alot of good people here that would just love to help you in just about anything to do with smoking meat.You look as if you have the basics down pat and the Qview also so I guess all you need is time to smoke something and let us see what all you did on your smoker. So enjoy and

    welcome from NorCal.
  10. Welcome to SMF, where you at in N.Calif?
  11. I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area, East Bay to be more exact.
  12. I'm in the Sacramento area. The wife and I had to go to SF last Friday to pickup our daughter she flew in, returning from 3 months in Europe. We managed to take the tour of the King Tut exhibit. Very Impressive! Highly recommend it, if you appreciate history or ancient art. If you go don't buy any books there you can find them all online for less than half the price.

    welcome to SMF..

    Hello Robert. good to know you're part of the best smoking site on the net, SMF that is.
  15. Does anyone know how long new posts generally wait for moderator's approval before they make it on the site?

    I posted about my first Pastrami yesterday, but it never showed up on the site. Not sure if it got lost and I should repot, or it's just sitting in queue and I should be patient. [​IMG]

    Any help or guidance you have would be great!!
