New, Texas smoker

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by notquitethere, May 27, 2013.

  1. I I've tried smoking off and on for years. My first attempts were on a grill using indirect heat. Then I remembered having El Cheapo Brinkman that I had purchased 15 or so years ago and used strictly for the propane burner during my years brewing beer. This morning I'upgraded to a Master Forge 2 door propane.
    I have had past success will poultry, moderate success with ribs and about a 30% success rate with brisket. I am hoping that I can gain a little more control of slow low heat and even temps using the vertical setup.
    I will spend most of my time browsing, ask a question or two and offer advice when I have something worth sharing.

    If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums.

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!

  6. I've been on a lot of different forums but don't know that one. What is Q-View?

    I've also got a local resource. A pretty good friend of mine is a "foodie" he and is wife have a website tracking their adventures and spent a year doing a charcutriere challenge(a different meat each month).  He often has good advice when it comes to smoking.  But it will help to have everyone here as an additional resource.  I'm chasing him for now, but hopefully not for long.

    As a side note, my wife and I have challenged our kids(8 and 6) to help plan(menu and shop) and prepare at least one weekend meal a month. My son has asked to do smoked chicken with fresh green beans and homemade mac and cheese next weekend. Getting him started on the smoking train early.

    Q-Views are pictures of the smokes you and the family do.  Get creative and show from beginning to end!  It's never too late to get the kidlets involved!
