1 Year Smoker from WV :)

  1. Howdy Ya'll,

    I've been smoking with Jeff for about a year or so now, and I am loving it! I have been cooking for many years and consider myself a well seasoned cook. I still have a lot to learn about smoking though, and I hope to learn from all of you seasoned smokers! So let's get our smoke on! LOL

    Welcome to the SMF family! What kind of rig do you have?
  4. Probably a dumb question, but what is the Qview? Thanks for the warm welcome :)
  5. I have the Cajun Injector Electric Smoker. I am disabled and it is so easy for me to use, and it works great. Set it and forget it most of the time.

    Q-view is just pictures of your food as you prepare it and prepare to eat it (also referred to as the "Money Shot" when you show off your smoke ring).

    What the heck are you doing up so late?!!! Go to bed, for God's sake! LOL!
  7. LOL! I am a night owl, plus I am planning my meal for tomorrow! Smoked chicken, smoked potatoes and smoked zuccini :) Trying to decide what kind of wood to use! Any suggestions? I have pictures for the Qview, where do I put them? I have an album made already.

    Dang! I think I'M a night owl! Nice to meet ya.

    Keep the wood a mild fruit or nut wood with poultry. Apple, cherry, or alder are good choices. If your inclined, soak the chips or chinks in a 50/50 bath of water and white wine before the smoke. It will add a nice dimension to the bird!

    There is a picture button on the toolbar above the text box. Just click it, find the picture file you want to insert, double click the file and click "submit."

    Now I'm not gonna tell you again -- go to bed! Sheesh, you're like my teenagers!
  9. Heck my teenagers were in bed by midnight LOL! I am going to bed now! I don't sleep well when hubby is on night shift. Going to use Pecan I think :)

    This was my first Applewood smoked pork chops.

    Did you flippin' get any sleep???!!!!!  [​IMG]  
  16. LOL! Not much :( Hubby woke me up at 8:20 AM by turning on the T.V. which came blaring into my head, scared the crap out of me LOL! Didn't go to sleep until 4:30 AM. Which in turn woke up the litter of puppies that I have right now, they instantley wanted their breakfast. So, the kids and I got up and started doing the morning dog chores, feeding, letting them out etc... Oh, you're probably wondering what the heck I am talking about. I breed Long Haired Miniature Dachshunds :) I have 14 plus 6 puppies right now. I wanted to get dinner started by 11:00 so we got that on as well. My thermometer isn't working I don't think. The internal one that is. Reading 176 after only an hour and a half at 250 degrees. This is one of my English Cream puppies Moses. Did you get any sleep?

  17. Hi momma, welcome,nice to see another hillbilly on here,lol
  18. Howdy Kaveman :)

    I am a WV transplant, moved here from Pa where I lived for 20 years. Before that I lived all over, father was in the USAF. My mother was from LA, so I have a pretty strong Southern/Cajun back ground LOL!

    I love WV! Great weather, and great people! Hubby is a pure Yankee though, never knew what good food tasted like until he met me LOL! I'm pretty new to Smoking, but I am a well seasoned cook! Loving Smoking more and more everyday! I am going to try to find a forum on here for sides and start contributing recipes on it :) Hope to see more of you on here. :)
