New in Northern MN (Q view!!)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 



I recently got a smoker for my birthday, and after doing research this was the first forum i found, and it looks like a good one.  We live in Norther MN, Winton Minnesota to be exact, just outside of the boundary waters.  My Wife picked up a Cajun Injector propane smoker in May for my birthday, and so far i've done two Chickens with Snake Bitten Rub (guess where i found that recipe icon_lol.gif) and the chickens turned out great, here is a picture of the finished project.




Currently in the smoker at around 235 degrees i have my first attempt at a Fatty, personally i'm proud of the bacon weave



And here is the finished roll-job



So far everything is going good, i do seem to have problems keeping a steady temp going, but I'm guessing with practice that will get easier.  The only thing left i feel i need is a good thermometer with two probes, the wireless "redi-check" i use now just has one probe, but i think that will make a good Fathers Day gift...

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
