Hello, all. Glad I found this sight. I've been grilling and smoking food for years, but this summer the BBQ bug has really hit hard. I've been doing spareribs and chicken for main courses, with an occasional pork shoulder or brisket. I also enjoy making crab or crawdad stuffed cheesy mushrooms, and jalapeno poppers. Currently, I use a little chief that I've had for years for initial smoking, and finish up on my Huntington gas grill (with foil packs of smokewood). I'm looking into the propane smokers that wally world carries (it's a weber or some other brand) side load for the perfect size.... or maybe I'll just invest in a Traeger at some point. I usually use apple/cherry, mulberry, hickory, or occasionally "Stubbs" brand chips for flavor. I use Sweet baby ray's hickory and brown sugar for BBQ sauce. We like it sweet and smoky here in northeast Kansas. Glad to be a part of the forums, and looking forward to learning some new recipes and picking up some more advanced techniques.
