Looking to Learn

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by txsully, Dec 23, 2009.

  1. Neat Forum! I have just jumped in to / invested-in the smoked meat adventure, and this looks to be a great resource.

    I have tried to do a little homework to get myself set-up. The NB Hondo was about the best in my low price range so I picked one up last weekend, and made a few mods based on my internet research...added a baffle at the hole to the firebox, mounted the thermo near the grill, made a charcoal basket, & lowered the chimney to grill level. I have a Maverick ET-73 thermo on it's way in the mail and have given the Hondo it's 1st "burn" with the entire interior coated with veg oil, about 5 hours. I am hoping to try it out with a brisket this weekend, we'll see how it goes.

    I have just signed up for the eCourse, so Im sure that will be a great resource.

    Thanks to all of you who take the time to add posts which are sure to really help the newbies like me.

    Sounds like you're on the way a brisket is a bit of a challenge for a first smoke and can take more than 10 hours for a large one, but not impossible for a newbie to do with good success.
    Its not rocket science and if you have the fine folks here on SMF to guide you through it. You'll do fine.
    Here's a link to a brisket tutorial. http://www.smoking-meat.com/brisket-smoke.html

    If it turns out wonderfully you can invite me to the tasting... hint hint....lol

    Welcome to the SMF, I think it's the best place to find anything out about smoking. If it's not known here, it's probrably not worth knowing, orrr we just haven't done it yet. [​IMG]
