Hello from Texas

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone. New here on the forum from Texas. I am a member of the Fat Ash BBQ team. We have only done 3 competitions so far, but have already won 3rd place and 1st place trophies. I would say I am a little more seasoned than a beginner but I have a lot to learn. I am the pit master in training. I am also the drink master of the team or mixologist if you will. If you want to know more about our team check us out and like us on facebook. Just look up FAT ASH BBQ. I hope to learn a lot on this forum and share ideas with everyone.


Darren (Seasoned Ash)

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
