Hello from the SF Bay Area-East bay actually

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by kumitedad, Nov 24, 2009.

  1. Hello. My name is Ray and I got started smoking meats when I got a Brinkmann Smoke n Pit from Walmart. Been using it for the last 10 years now, one of these day I will upgrade. My status would probably be described as Talented Amateur. People love my ribs and pulled pork, and I am branching out to chicken now (leg quarters are soooo versatile). Doing Smoked Duck and Turkey breast for Thanksgiving. Looking forward to being a contributing member.

    Oh also, am a graduate of California Culinary Academy Got a Baking Certificate when I attempted a career change sometime back. Will go back that someday. People also love my bread, and I make a mean white chocolate cheesecake

    Welcome to the site Ray.

    All you need is a chicken and you got yourself a Turducken.

    Would love it if you could post your recipes for bread and the cheesecake, love trying new recipes and this site isn't just for smoking.

  17. Will be posting soon, but a this being Thanksgiving, a lot of smoking to be going on here. We have a two dinners: small family dinner on Thanksgiving-bigger get together on Sat. Tomorrow is Smoked Duck and some sausages and maybe chicken. Sat will be Turkey legs, some pork roast, hot links and whatever else I can convince my wife to let me do [​IMG]

    My motto is " hey why waste the fire-throw something else on!"

    Happy Thanksgiving
    Merry Christmas
    Happy Holidays to you all
