Southern griller turned smoker newbie

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by agoude, Sep 28, 2015.

  1. Hey guys. Anthony here in good ol North Carolina. 29 years old, married with a 2 year old boy. Started cooking when I convinced my mom at age 6 I could whip up a grilled ham n cheese on my own. Been manning a grill for 15 years or so and wanted change of pace. We just bought a new house and got settled in so I'm ready to jump in. I got a Weber Smokey Mountain, baby edition, 14.5. Budget was tight but wanted quality. First smoke will be this weekend, probably a batch of chicken thighs. So off to research as much as I can before I light the fire. Look forward to future discussions with you all.

    Welcome aboard Anthony.  Congratulations on your new smoker.  I've got the 18.5 version of the WSM.  Like it a lot.  I did chicken for my first WSM smoke also.  It helps start the sealing process and you don't have to worry about trying to keep the temps low.
  3. Thanks One Eyed Jack for the tip.

    Your welcome.  [​IMG]   Enjoy your first cook with the new smoker.
  5.  Welcome to the forum. I'm glad you joined us.

     I have never used a WSM but you can't beat their reputation as a good smoker. I hope you enjoy your time with us.

  6. Thanks Chuck
