Hello everybody, my name's Bentley and have been smoking for a little over a year now. Started out on a cheap horizontal Charbroil smoker with no credible thermometer. Was still ablt to put out some pretty good meat though. Next to NCAA football it's what pretty much consumes my free time. I've been in the military going on 12 yrs now and have been stationed in Jax FL since 06, originally form GA. Learned most of what I know from my pops, uncles and grandfather... that man new his meat. But yeah, threw out the rusted out Charbroil and recently graduated to a man's smoker which was delivered earlier this week. I'll be breaking her in early tomorrow morning. I've peeked in on here a couple of times recently trying to figure out what I can do to improve my game. My Q comes out tasting excellent but the one gripe I have is IRT my ribs. Like I said the taste and tenderness is there but the appearance is lacking. They come out with a thick bark like on a butt and I'm looking for that nice glazed "red" look. I'll post some pics when I can into the appropiate section to better explain. In the mean time, I'll TRY to post some pics of the new smoker I'm working with. I know that it has to go through a filtering process so it'll take some time to show up but any tips on how to post an image on here? Thaks in advance.
