    Hi all,

    Just got on this forum looking for some tips and tricks on starting out in smoking.

    A coworker of mine got me introduced to doing this , and found me a great deal on a large Big Green Egg in our local online classifieds.

    Wanted a smoker for years but never got around to it. Getting the Big Green Egg has me going and I ambitiously did a smoked turkey on Thanksgiving for my first smoke after watching several YouTube videos on green egg cooking. Turkey came out OK but I was chasing temperatures through the whole cook.

    Got some tips from my coworker and my second smoke was some St. Louise style ribs. Still chasing temps but not as bad as with the turkey. Found out settings for 225 to 250 on the egg.

    Anyways I am noe into this and just bought a remote temperature probe a 732. So going to try some more ribs and hopefully getting a better handle on temperatures.

    Looking forward to some learning here on the forums.

    Thanks guys!

    Just found prime rib roast on sale at a local store for Christmas. Bought a 9 lb roast and am going to smoke it for Christmas!

    Trying another set of ribs today just to make sure I have temperatures right before doing the prime rib roast.

    Thanks again for the welcome!
