Hello! From Texas Smoker

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by overwe1ght bbq, Sep 7, 2014.

  1. My name is Casey I live in North Texas, I currently use an offset makers mark, hand-me-down from father in law. I hope to be getting a new vertical smoker, probably the meat locker from big hat bbq, its in my price range. I'm stuck in a rut all I ever do is smoke a brisket or ribs. So I'm hoping to get some new ideas, and maybe some new recipes. and mabe some advice on the next smoke I purchase.

    Welcome Casey, i am sure you will like the forum and newsletters on the main site. 

    I am sure you will get lots of input, I just started smoking a few weeks ago and I am enjoying it. Although I am new to smoking i am not not new to grilling. Definitely not new to cooking. I love food, all kinds of food, from all different parts of the world as well.

    I have a charcoal smoker and an MES30 (Masterbuilt Electric Smoker 30inch), already. Plus a few gadgets.  Try Jeffs Jerky, its one of the first things I tried, last week i made about 3.5 pounds of it , gone in about a  day and a half, my son, daughter and i ate all of it. Everyone i have let try it has said its the best Jerky they have ever eaten..


    Where in North Texas. ?

  5. Hello and good morning from beautiful and cooler  East Texas, welcome to the forum. Lots of great information and real good people here.

    Nothing wrong with brisket and ribs, but I get what you are saying, If you have brisket down, most everything else will be easy, Try a pork Butt next time, and throw on some chicken leg quarters.
