Surfing around on the web, I came across this site, so thought I might give it a shot. My name is Ron, I live in Orange County, Ca., and enjoy all thing BBQ. I recently tried my first attempt at Smoking meat, (15 lbs. of brisket), and it came out quite nice. The wife and kids were very pleased, and it was pretty much all gobbled up within a week. I have one of the store bought, propane, cabinet type smokers. It is a Stainless Steel, Smoky Mountain Series, by Great Outdoors brand. Yeah,... I know,.... It's not a trailer mounted, triple axle, wood burning, 3 man operation, with a log splitter on one end, and a keg with tap on the other,.... but it is a easy way for me to do it without going into a huge production. LOL! Anyway, I just wanted to say Hi, and I'm about to go fire it up and do my second attemt at hopefully a good dinner. tonights menu includes a Tenderloin steak that has been marinading in the wifes "Secret Homemade Special Sauce", some Chicken breast's with something rubbed all over 'em (she did it not me), and just as a Super Duper Special Treat for the munchkins.... a whole pack of hotdogs, LOL! (hey, they are only 11 and 10 years old, so hotdogs are still gourmet fare !) Wish me luck !
