    My name is Kurt Whalen, I'm married with 1 son.

    I've been an out door cooking enthusiast for years. I cook on a homade Fire Pit (37' internal diamater) sometimes using a 22' skillet, a small Weber Charcoal grill, and My new Masterbuilt Electric Smoke house.

    I convinced my wife to let me buy a Masterbuilt electric smokehouse (MES) when I got a bonus from work and it's paid for itself already as much as we use it. She even admitted that it was a good buy!

    I've been reading this forum ever since I bought the MES and finally decided to join, and hopefully give a little back to the Forum that has given my family so much.

    Some things I've cooked in my MES so far are:

    Beer can Duck and Chicken.
    Chicken wings
    Turkey
    Prime Rib roast - best I've ever eaten [​IMG]
    Baby Back ribs
    various sausages
    Corn on the cob - best I've ever eaten [​IMG]
    Shrimp - best I've ever eaten [​IMG]
    Salmon
    Brisket (whole Packer)

    Some things I'm looking forward to cooking in my MES but haven't yet:

    Fattie
    Baked beans
    Potatoes
    Corned beef Brisket

    I look forward to getting some pics up and sharing some of my recipies with all of you.

    Definitely glad to have you with us at SMF, Kurt! Looks like a might fine resumé so far. One thing cut of meat I noticed missing from the list was a boston butt, or pork shoulder. Have you tried smoking either of those for pulled pork (just curious).

    Good luck, and we're happy to have you!

    I haven't tried a boston butt or pork sholder yet because my wife loves pulled pork so I'm kind-a waiting to do some other things first out of fear that once She starts eating the pulled pork that's all we'll smoke. [​IMG]

    I just read up on the ABT's and am definitely doing some of those tomorrow (if the weather allows)

    Thanks for all the welcomes
