New Bay Area Guy Here

  1. Hi all
    Lurked here for a bit. I have a old New Braunfels vertical smoker that I nearly gave up on because it didn't have a thermostat and seemed like a pain to work. Good buddy of mine has a BGE and has been making ridiculous Q the last year so I gave up. Recently I drank a bunch o beer and watched a marathon of BBQ Pitmasters. Said "to he'll with it, lets try it again"

    Installed a thermometer and read abunch on this site. Made 2 slabs of St Louis ribs last weekend that were the best I had ever made thanks to some of your tips. My buddy with the egg was floored. Smoked the spare ribs at 250 for 2.5hrs, wrapped for 2 with a combo of Mixon's rub and Johnny Trig's wrap. Loved it so much I took today off and am trying another round.

    Thanks for sharing the knowledge and the wealth of info on here. I'm hooked and can't wait to spend the summer smoking.

    PS My Friday afternoon...
