I've been a member for over a year, but am now finally going public because of a certain squealing "picnic" I've got going on in my smoker right now. Specs: Mike W. -- late 30 something year old Broomfield, Co Analog MES 30" -- highly modified I've smoked the usual suspects (with varying levels of success) -- shoulder, brisket, turkey, ribs But I love to experiment with my smoker -- burgers, ribeyes, bacon, salmon I've never checked the "Roll Call" thread before, but holy sh*t...this site is blowing up! New people sprouting from everywhere! Good for you Dave! P.S. If you other newbies have not tried Chef JimmyJ's smoked turkey gravy recipe from this site, you are not living! I would literally bathe in it if I could...... Thanks everyone! I've got an 8 lb'er shoulder in right now. I'll be posting qview soon!
