Smokin' In Texas

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by southtexasbbq, Jul 13, 2009.

  1. Hey, y'all!

    I'm new to the forum, but not to smokin. Been doing briskets for many years. I'm really picking up some great tips from this site, though. I never knew what a fattie was until I read about it on this site. I've done three of them now and all I can say is YEE-HAW! The first was a mushroom and swiss with the bacon weave and all. It was AWESOME! The last two were cheeseburger fatties with beef. My wife wants a pizza fattie next. I aim to please!

    I use a tiny Weber for tailgaitin', a Charbroil electric for quick and easy porch grillin' for hamburgers and such, a heavy gauge smoker that holds two briskets, and then there's the "Big 'Un", a large heavy gauge smoker built by a highschool welding class from East Texas that I can pull behind my truck and smoke five briskets on the main surface and a turkey or sausage in the smoke stack.

    I'm not a pro, yet, but I'm working on it as fast as I can. I've already learned a lot by reading what y'all post. Keep up the good work and I'll be readin' and sharin'!

    p.s. Thanks to Cowgirl for helping me get my posting activated.

    Welcome aboard! When you mentioned brisket, you had my un-divided attention. I just did my second one a couple weeks turned out great and I have a new found favorite now!

    Anyway, you came to a great place for smoking ideas and tips.

    Welcome SouthTexasBBQ Glad you found us. Sounds like we might be able to learn a thing or two from you as well. Be sure to put up some pictures of your smokes. There's a little saying around qview, never happened.
