New Guy - Corona, CA

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by gto driver, Nov 11, 2009.

  1. I've consumed lots of great smoked meats over the years but after years of looking I can't find a good restaurant in Southern California that serves good smoked meat. I'm now on a quest to learn how to be a smoker. Finally decided to purchase the WSM and start on the road to smoking. I will have lots of questions so be hang on and here we go.

    Welcome to the site Ron, even if you had some good Q joints there most of them probably wouldn't seem that good after you learn how to smoke your own.

    Welcome to SMF.I had a JUDGE long time ago....
  7. Received the 5 day course and have read most of it. I've been really busy trying to determine what smoker I will purchase and it looks like the Weber South Mountain for me.

    Used to live in Kansa City....Leawood, KS to be exact and ate lots and lots of great meat at Gates and Bryants.

    Still have a GTO but this one is not street legal. I drag race a 1965 Pontiac GTO

    Welcome amigo,
    Being from California, I would suggest watching Guy Fieri on the "triple D" on the food channel on Sunday, 2:00 central. He owns several resturaunts in CA not necessarily smoked food but worth looking into. Also did a lot of shows regarding smoked meat, from Kansas and Oklahoma, where we reside. Last weekend we went to a place in OK City, the Cattleman Cafe, which was featured in the triple D show Guy does. Awesome Steaks, straight from the stockyard.
    I have his recipe book which has several mentions of good food in south CA.
    Anyway, welcome!

    I am in Corona too - and I agree  - hard to find good smoked food! Especially beef.

    I have a Masterbuilt electric signature series and a charcoal one. Both are great.

    I cook beef ribs (Albertsons near my house on foothill is the best place), chicken, pork ribs and have just started briskets.

    For great BBQ both the wife and I are spoiled by hoe cooking, otherwise its Lucielles by far and away, followed by a new place on hamner and hidden valley .
