    Hello all. My name is Joe, i live in Las Vegas and im new to the world of smoking. I have a few buddies that smoke meat all the time and i kinda got curious, so i went out and got a brinkmann smoke and grill. I have made all the modifications to it and i have it curing as i type this. I found this fourm and figured i would sign up to learn tips and tricks to smoking everything from ribs to fish.
  2. Welcome.    I just got my own smoker about a month ago after a BBQ food truck kept coming by my work.     Its been a lot of fun, and quite the learning experience.     

    So what do you plan to do for your first smoke?

    I plan on smoking some rainbow trout to kick it off. Then maybe some ribs or chicken.
  4. Fantastic.    Can't wait to hear about the Trout.   I would like to do some fillets soon, and have no idea how they'll go.       Ribs are a great bet, a real show stopper.     The foil method seems really popular, but I just put them on the racks for 7 hours and they turned out amazing, and the easiest thing I have ever done.

    Well ended up smoking some ribs instead of the trout. I used St Louis style ribs (never again). I didn't like that style rib. I pulled the membrane off and rubbed them with some salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and California chili powder after putting a little olive oil on them. Smoked them for about 3 1/2 hours at 225 degrees with a mix of hickory and apple wood. I pulled them off when the internal temp was about 175 degrees. They were pretty good, i just need to make some changes to my rub so it has a little more bite to it.

    Great starter grill. As with all smokers you have to find your flavor. Getting the degree of smoke right can be tricky too. There is a point you can poor it on then to know when to cut down on it. I have had a few cooks that were a tad bitter with too much smoke. These are things we learn with each smoker because they all are a bit different in their cook. Don't be surprised when your full on with the BBQ bug and getting a bigger smoker.
