New here

  1. Hi, I'm brand new here. I chose the user ahas because it means snake in Filipino. My wife is from there. I have been BBQing and smoking sausage for over 30 years, but you never learn it all. And, even with that much time stoking pitts I've learned a little just looking around here. I"m here to learn and share. 

    I usually BBQ on a pipe Pitt. The one I have now has a firebox, though I really prefer direct coals. Being from Texas I usually do brisket, but I also like to do Pork Ribs and chickens. I like mesquite wood and also use pecan and Live Oak. But on my present pitt I usually use charcoal and put a few mesquite chips on top of the coals every few minutes, like every time I turn and baste the meat. 

    Like was said here, low and slow is the way to go. I usually cook a 10 pound brisket about 8 hours at medium low heat. With the fire box system that's easy to do. With direct coals you have to watch it closely for awhile. Anyway, I'm sure I will get a lot out of this place and am looking forward to it.
  2. [​IMG]   Good afternoon and welcome to the forum, from a hot sunny day here in East Texas. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about  everything.

  3. Do you know were Atlanta TX is? I was born there and still have a lot of relatives there, When I was a kid in the 50s and 60s the big thing where you are was fried catfish and hushpuppies. But nowadays BBQing has become a way of life. When I go up that way I see more Barbeque pits in yards and sometimes on the side of the road where somebody is selling it.

    ahas Welcome to SMF you have come to the right place,reading some of the post will give you more ideas for BBQing,then you could imagine.

    "sometimes on the side of the road where somebody is selling it."You see a lot of that in the Philippines my wife is from their.

  5. Yep, I was through there about a month ago. I think since the BBQ shows started on TV everybody got enthused and bought smokers

    I'll bet most of them hardly get used.
