    I see your right down the road from me. We used to go to Valmeyer to play baseball and softball when the kids was younger.

    Me and a Buddy smoked a couple birds for a Christmas party, but in a moment of cloudy judgement I failed to take pictures, lol, so as the saying goes, No Q View, it never happened!
     
  17. I smoked a Ham and a Turkey on Christmas day. Sadly I have no pictures of either, was to busy cooking everything else for the meal.
     
     
  18. I smoked my first Boston Butts in our MES 40.  It took 20 hours!!  turned out excellent though.  still a bit perplexed about the time
     
  19. Hey there everybody. Thanks for the invite jrod62. I have been smoking for about three years now. I have two GOSMs and a Weber Kettle. I am mostly a pork guy but I did do my first brisket this past weekend and it turned out great so I will for sure be doing some more of those in the near future.

    I live north of Champaign/Urbana about 25 miles in a small town called Gibson City. I try to fire up my smoker once a week or so. Glad to be a part of this group.
