Hey guys, I'm Stanton. I'm from S.E. Louisiana, but play all along the La. gulf coast, Houma, Franklin, Lacassine Bayou .I love smoked meat of all styles, and have been trying on my own for a few years, with mixed results. I'm thrilled to find you, to keep me on a consistant path to righteous meat! I just finished the e-course & have already found great info. Already made and learned from the creasote mistake, some time ago. Argggh!
Now, it's more about getting it "more right" than "what went wrong". Most of my smoking is on weekends with the crew @ our family "camp". Usually briskets, Boston butts, ribs, and/or our homemade deer, rabbit or duck sausage . FUN! I currently have 2 horizontal smokers (Backyard Classic Pro. from Sam's club, and a Brinkman Smoke'n Pit) and an electric Brinkman Gourmet .I'm planning to build a permanant smoker, just haven't settled on the style yet. I've also enjoyed cooking >20 whole hogs in my homemade "Cajun Microwave". I've got the hogs close to perfection, It's the smoking where I'll be bugging you for help! My Maverick ET732, with the dual probes and hi/low alarms is indespensible, thanks A-MAZE-N!
I know this is getting long, but I'm excited to find this site with such a great community. I'll be here to learn what I can, and to share whatever I know (that's worth sharing!).
TBS to all! .....Stanton
