  1. Just checking in as a new member to the site. I'm in my second year with my Weber bullet smoker and am really enjoying it. Did a ham last Thanksgiving for my wife's bunko group that went over really big and 2 Turkeys for Thanksgiving for the family. I can say I will never cook a Turkey any other way again. Doing a couple of Pork tenderloins tomorrow and found some info for my rub and a coca cola habanero bbq sauce that I'm looking forward to making. Looking forward to learning more from the more experienced smokers on the site.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the board! You said habanero. I'm digging a hole under your fence.

  6. Thanks guys...Greetings from sunny So-Cal. I'll be sure to post some pics of my pork tenderloins tomorrow. From what I've seen so far on this type of meat is a pretty short cook time, about 3 hours. Any tips from anyone? I'm using a standard homemade rub and trying a habanero coca cola bbq sauce. 
     
  7. Thanks Ryan, glad to be here! Looking forward to learning and refining my smoke processes. Let me ask you one question. The basic directions and a book I bought, (low & slow) says to wait for my smoker to stop billowing smoke, about 15 minutes, before putting the meat on but it seems to me that I'm losing some of the actual smoke from the wood I'm using. Am I thinking this wrong?

    If you're using wood chunks, 15 minutes will not make much of a difference. I use the minion method on my mini WSM. Do a search for The Dude Abides' post for beginners on the minion method. It really helped me to get started.
