    lurker and reader, been reading SMF for about a year now, finally decided to join up.

    Middle of the road as far as experience, I've done turkeys, briskets, chickens, home cured bacon and ham, am going to be doing my first fatty today (no camera, so no Q-view, so it's isn't

    I'm from the middle of north texas (where hwy 82 crosses I-35) and my woods of choice are pecan, as I've got several trees that give me plenty of deadfall, and mesquite.

    Smoker is the cheap brinkmann box,(6 years with the firebowl dropped, and a custom water pan (a gallon stainless steel bowl..which may or may not be used, depending on what I'm smoking)

    I've smoked in everything from a hole in the ground, to a pair of clay flowerpots, to the square brinkmann, to an old gas hot water heater tank that I carved a door into the side and put a cheap hotplate in for cold smoking.

    I've learned a lot from you guys, and I'm really appreciative, and I hope to spend a lot of time here.

    btw- the 'imaginary' fatty I'm doing later- mild sausage, wrapped around diced chorizo, medium salsa, diced pickled jalepenos, mexicali corn (corn with bell peppers) black beans, diced fresh onion, and some 4 cheese blended shreds.

    No bacon wrapping, unfortunately, as I have yet to do any more. Shame on

    Welcome SC, surprised you could lurk so long without joining. But hey man you got to invest in a camera..everyone loves Q-View. It's no fun to talk about it if you can't see and if you need it, ask it

    Thanks for the warm greetings, and I think I 'might' have found a camera that works, so since I can't get before pics, I should be able to get some 'after' pictures in a little bit. Maybe. possibly.

    Welcome to SMF. Sounds like you have a handle on what's going on in the smoking world. If you have any questions, feel free to post them and someone will have an answer.

    thanks, and I've got my (lousy) pictures up of the fatty..can't see much detail on it, I'm afraid, as the camera's not 'good' for anything closer than 3'

    That and my friend who snuck into my kitchen while I was finding my camera chopped off the end and was busy getting hooked on the back doesn't show the sausage having smoke-ring through the entire shell, or the individual ingredients.

    Welcome aboard.
    I do suspect there used to be a lot of "smoked" cavemen.
    Hey Cheech, throw some more of that stuff on the fire! :)

    Sounds like a nice Fatty there.
