New from PA - First QVIEW!

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 

Been Smoking on my own for about a year. Tried my first Pork Butt last year on my propane grill with a wood box.

Smoking on my new smoker for the first time this weekend on a Electric Red Bullet.


Actually spent around 6 years in the French Gourmet Culinary industry and did a bunch of smoking when I did that, but on more delicate things... Duck, rabbit, Salmon ex.


Love smoking meat, And have already leaned tons from this site in the week that I have been reading up.


Just a little about myself, I am 28 I am a salesman for Residential Heating and Air Conditioning systems and Solar Electric Systems.

I have been married for 6 years, and I have a 3 year old son and my wife is pregnant with a little girl right now


Happy Smoking,

From Lancaster PA

Already tried to post a Qview. I am smoking a 9 lb Boston Butt today. And I posted on another guys thread with pics, but it said it had to be reviewed by a Mod first.


Got a little board today, Here is a graph of the IT temps of my pork I am smoking :)

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

Welcome to SMF and the ever growing PA--Q--Crew. Along with other restaurants I worked, I did the opening, hiring and training for Lyndon City Line Diner on Manhiem Pike and lived in Colombia. So really familiar with the area. Looks like you got some nice butts there. Good luck with your new toy...JJ
