Hello Y'all!

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by joecarnut, May 28, 2013.

  1. I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself.

    My username is joecarnut, but you can call me Ken if you want.

    I live in South Orange County,CA and I consider myself a definite rookie.

    I have a  Masterbuilt Electric Smoker K37133 or otherwise known as 20070712 40" 3 rack smoker and a Nexgrill grill.

    Only tried smoking twice, once last year and yesterday.

    First time was spare ribs and I think I under cooked them although they were technically cooked


    Yesterday we tried Pork Butt, a Whole Chicken, and one slab of St Louis style ribs all with some rub on them and using Apple Wood for smoke.

    We did much better this time, but there were traces of pink in the Pork Butt and Chicken so we will put the remaining "pink" pieces in the oven tonight to cook them through.

    They were very juicy bit not much smoke taste.

    I had cooked them for about 6 1/2 hours at what i believe was 225 degrees using an analog oven thermometer.

    I have a wireless Target brand but have never tried it yet, but will find a way to check its accuracy.

    I already see I need to get some reliable temperature measuring devices.

    Anyways that sums up my whole meat smoker experience and I look forward to trying this much more this year. I'm looking forward to reading and learning on this forum about all your experiences and triumphs in smoking.

    I am pondering the purchase of the same model MB you have. Please send me a review of the Pros. and Cons. I would greatly appreciate it, Winter is getting to me now and Maw said she wants me indoors and not sitting in the Cold watching the temps  on my Stickburners.[​IMG]  That way I can go out once . start the cook and watch my Mavericks from the House.[​IMG]. I'm gonna have BBQ do or die.
