Ok, I am so not new, I have been readin for a long time and learnin so much. I am a wimp when it comes to smokin, I use a Brinkman plug in thingy. Oh yeah electric no fus no mus. I feel so not worthy, after lookin at all ya'lls wonders. But, it came down to this, I love smoke meats and love BBQ stuff, my dear husband does too. But, you see he works like a mad man at his job and then has a hobby of LBCs (Little British sports Cars) we have 13 of them. I would ask him to smoke or BBQ & he'd say yeah that sounds good and nothin. So I had to step up. I want to thank you all for such inspiration & the outcome has been so good. Today I have a porkloin soakin from a recipe I saw that NOLA Saints Smoker posted. Of coarse a cabbage this time with the bacon. And I have just perfected my BBQ shrimp recipe. I will share that after I make sure it works. Happy Mothers Day to me. yougottaloveit. Thanks again to all of you Menda Abbeville, La.
