My name is Anthony but I prefer Caveman. Someone here already has that name so I will use my alias, Sircave. I like to play chess, although my endgame is not as strong as my beginning & middle game, I read & I work & play on computers for a living & as a hobby. My rig is a Char Griller super model 2121. I have been using it for now for about nine to ten months with decent to fair results. Last week, my wife & I added a side fire box for smoking & OMG the results were interesting on my first smoke. I am a novice smoker, however I have done a lot of research & reading & decided to smoke a 26lb Turkey for Thanksgiving, 2009. Also, last weekend I smoked my first 6 pound brisket, chicken breast & a rack of spare ribs all at the same time just last week. ( I really should have taken pictures.) The week of the 13th of February, I plan on attempting another smoke with a 10lb Brisket, 3 slabs of Baby backs & two whole chickens. ( Having a function at my place with two other couples. ) I will take some pictures this time. Last time I used briquette charcoal & was only able to keep my temp at 150F. I think this was because of the ash burn. Of course it started off at 225F but then dropped. This time I am going to buy some green egg lump, as cowboy lump charcoal is all they seem to have around here & the reviews were unfavorable & see if I can finish my brisk on the grill instead of in the oven this time. Phew, that was a lot from a newbie. I hope I can contribute to the forum & learn from some of the other members here & I am excited to be here as I truly feel this is a hobby that I want to "Master" with great skill. Thank you for having me.
