New to the Smoke Ring

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by smokinhotrn, Oct 27, 2015.

  1. Hey guys! My name is Kelley, and I live on the Central Coast of California, but born and raised in Mississippi. I am new to smoking, but I love to grill/cook/whatever, so I know I am going to fall in love with smoking things! I am so glad I found this forum, as everyone seems so helpful and friendly. I'm not scared to ask stupid questions! 

    I got an MES30 for my birthday this past year, and have since smoked a butt, baby backs, and a turkey breast. Still some tweaking to be done, but I feel like I will get the hang of it soon enough.  

    I am excited to start sharing some of my upcoming smokes (I got elected to do the turkey for "friendsgiving" this year), so I am a little nervous about that. I am positive that y'all will be able to walk me through it! Again, I am so happy to be a part of the forum! 

    Namaste ॐ

    Welcome Kelly!![​IMG]

    Since you have an MES, my Step by Steps could come in handy for you (See Below).

    Sorry I don't have any Turkey in it.


    Just click on "Bear's Step by Steps". And take your pick.

  3. Thanks Bear! Those look great! I think I'm gonna have to get a prime rib, after looking at those. I have a couple of pork loins marinating now, and will get them in the box in a few hours. Any suggestions?

    Prime Ribs are one of the easiest things to smoke, with the greatest reward.

    As for the Pork Loins you have marinating, I would suggest smoking at about 225° Smoker Temp to at least 145° Internal Temp, but not over 150° IT.

    145° is the safe temp according to USDA.

  5. Welcome to the addiction from another on the Central Coast!! [​IMG]
  6. Well, I wasn't able to get the tender loins in the smoker (I work nights and had to sleep today!), so on the grill they went. Seriously, I think being part of this forum is going to make my grilling/smoking/cooking so much better! The missus said this is one of the best loins she's had! I'm on my game! Made a "potato pack" and threw some asparagus on there, had a meal in less than an hour. I know this grilled, but I had to share!
