Mid-Michigan smoker

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by fire34, Mar 22, 2015.

  1. Hello everyone so glad to find this site. I'm fairly new to smoking as I just started last spring and looking to learn as much as I can. I really enjoy eating smoked meats and enjoy cooking for family and friends just as much. So far I have found this site to be very informative and very enjoyable to read. I got my start last year after my wife's uncle smoked a pork butt for everyone and I enjoyed it so much I decided it was time to learn my self. I talked with her uncle and he gave me a family rub recipe and some pointers and off I went. Just two weeks ago I purchased an vertical offset charcoal smoker and I love it. Before I was just using my charcoal gill which worked but not nearly as well. Last weekend I smoked some pork chops with some applewood and had my mother try them (not a big fan of pork) and she loved them so much she asked me to smoke more. This summer looks to be a fun and full of good food. Thanks everyone and I look forward to seeing your posts, tips, ideas ect..

    Welcome to the forum, a lot of helpful people here if you need them.
  12. Thanks everyone. I found and joined the Michigan memebers group shortly after joining and it sounds like a wonderful group of people. I even recommended my coworker who enjoys smoking to sign up for this website and join the Michigan memebers group. When we get a chance to chat it's always about what we plan to smoke for the weekend.
