Smoking Kiwi

  1. Hi all,

    I found this website a few months back and have been sitting back taking it all in and learning as much as I can.

    I bought my first smoker in November 2011 after watching re-runs of pitmasters sparked my interest. I watched the entire season that day and decided to invest in a smoker. I purchased the Brinkmann Trailmaster Limited and haven’t looked back since.

    I watched hours of Modification videos on youtube and went to work on my trailmaster and came out with what I feel like is a relatively good product that fit within my budget. To date, I have smoked a Pork Butt, Brisket, ribs and my latest’s endeavor a rack of Lamb. With mixed results I still have a lot of leaning and experimenting to do!!  To say I’m a novice is an understatement!  I live in California but I’m originally from New Zealand where “traditional BBQ” is relatively unheard of. 

    Anyway, Just a quick introduction and a big thanks to everyone! There is so much great advice and information in this forum!
