New from PA - First QVIEW!

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by cororumrex, Jul 2, 2011.

  1. Been Smoking on my own for about a year. Tried my first Pork Butt last year on my propane grill with a wood box.

    Smoking on my new smoker for the first time this weekend on a Electric Red Bullet.

    Actually spent around 6 years in the French Gourmet Culinary industry and did a bunch of smoking when I did that, but on more delicate things... Duck, rabbit, Salmon ex.

    Love smoking meat, And have already leaned tons from this site in the week that I have been reading up.

    Just a little about myself, I am 28 I am a salesman for Residential Heating and Air Conditioning systems and Solar Electric Systems.

    I have been married for 6 years, and I have a 3 year old son and my wife is pregnant with a little girl right now

    Happy Smoking,

    From Lancaster PA

    Thanks for being patient Jordan, the defense system puts a hold on new member posts to cut down on spam. I think all of you posts are showing now.. If not, let me know.

    Welcome to SMF, Glad to have you with us.

    This is the place to learn, lots of good info and helpful friendly Members.

    Many of our members have years of experience in smoking meat.  They are more than happy helping Newbies learn the art.

    We have members who cure there own Bacon, Hams, Jerky, Snack Sticks, Make Their own Sausage, etc. if you want to learn,
    this is the place. 

    Don't be afraid to ask questions of them and follow their advice. You won't be sorry, you will be making great Q in no time at all...

    Just remember, when curing your own meats follow the instructions included with the cure to the letter, this is not something to experiment with.  

    Never use more cure no mater if it is Tender Quick or Cure #1 or Cure #2 than the manufacturer says to use, this can be very dangerous.

    Tender Quick and Cure#1 or Cure #2 are not interchangeable, neither Cure #1 interchangeable with Cure #2 or vise versa

    Tips For New Members.
    1. Go into your profile and Under Location put where you are.
    2. City & State or Area & State will do. This will help members when answering your questions.
    3. Go to ROLL CALL thread and tell us a little about Yourself (A Name We Can Call You) and Experience & Equipment.
    4. Do Not Post  your other questions and smokes in the Roll Call Forum.
    5. Post your questions and smokes in the Proper Forum, Beef, Pork, Sausage, Electric Smoker, Charcoal Smoker etc.
    6. Use the Wiki Section, many of our members have posted great tutorials and instructional threads so take advantage of them.
    7. When you can't find an answer ask plenty of questions, we have some highly experienced members willing to help you.
    8. When posting about your smokes be sure to post plenty of Qview (Pictures) Our Moto, "No Pics, Didn't Happen".
    9. Get a good Probe Thermometer, Don't Depend on the Built in Thermometer in your Smoker (They are notorious for being off).
    10. A good choice for a remote dual probe thermometer is the Maverick ET-732
    11. Remember, We Always Cook by Temperature and NOT BY TIME...
    12. Don't Take Chances, Always Follow USDA Safety Guidelines When Handling Meat.

    13. If you are wanting to get into curing meat, there are many members here more than happy to help and give good advice.

    14. If you are unsure of a procedure ASK, don't ASSUME, It will make your Smoking experience much more pleasant...

    Welcome to SMF and the ever growing PA--Q--Crew. Along with other restaurants I worked, I did the opening, hiring and training for Lyndon City Line Diner on Manhiem Pike and lived in Colombia. So really familiar with the area. Looks like you got some nice butts there. Good luck with your new toy...JJ
