How's it going everybody? I'm new to not only smoking, but online forums as well. I just graduated from college, with 8yrs. in the Army before hand. I've always been proud of my grilling skills, but now I want to try my hand at smoking low and slow. My folks got me the Chargriller Smoking Pro w/ SFB for a graduation present, so now I'm "all fired up" to get started.
This forum has given me a lot of info and ideas over the past few weeks since I discovered it. So far, I've smoked some chicken quarters, bacon for Mother's Day, and some chicken breasts this past weekend. The breasts turned out great! I seared them over high heat and then smoked them in tin pie pans with a butter/basil baste (thank you Chris Lilly). This weekend I'm gonna try my hand at my first pork shoulder. I don't mind telling you that that's all I've been thinking about for the past few days. Is there something wrong with me? haha My girlfriend is starting to worry that I've found a new true love and will soon forget about her. well...... we'll see. haha
In closing, you'll see from my info that I'm in Huntsville, AL. If there's anything I can do for anyone, just let me know. I'm looking forward to learning a lot from everyone here.
