Hello from Cebu, Philippines!

  1. Hi Guys! My name is Joseph and I'm from Cebu, Philippines. I found my way here when I was googling on smoking meats (pastrami to be exact).

    I haven't tried nor attempted smoking meats yet but I found a nice slab of beef brisket in the grocery earlier and I knew I had to make pastrami out of it. I figured I have about a week (meat in brine right now) to work out the smoking bit.

    For now, I do have a small barbecue grill that I could probably use to smoke or I could borrow our neighbor's grill if necessary.

    I also roast my own coffee and hopefully I could also learn smoking meat.

    Welcome to the board! You are on the verge of inventing smoked coffee *G*
  3. hahaha well when you're roasting coffee, it produces a lot of smoke along the way :D

    What kind of grill do you plan to use? Brisket is an ambitious first try. You might want to practice first with something simple like chicken, just to get the hang of the rig.
  5. yeah, I sort of realized that as I was reading on the threads earlier. I didn't really think it through when I bought the brisket earlier. I just sort of went for it.  I was planning to use this one
