In Aurora, Colorado...Struttin with some Barbeque!!!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 




Troy here in Aurora, found your site looking for tips to make my COS work, and many great smokes! Now refurbish an old heavy

NB Red River, and cant wait to use it! I'm guessing early August at this rate, and could use you tips and tricks ( see my thread in Charcoal smokers)


Really loving my home smokes, Commercial BBQ in the Denver area is disappointing at best. and isn't what it is back home in New Orleans. But I love the road trips back home and all the BBQ spots an the way. But smokes from home are the best!


Wife and four terriers, Jazz is all I do anymore.. nothing better than tuning in to WWOZ, grabbing my favorite cocktail, and making my wife moan in pleasure as her lips meet my........pulled pork of course!!!

I'm also a Louisiana transplant to denver....you are right about the Q here. I've found only 1 good place and it's in lakewood. I just started smoking meat, so we'll see if I can fulfill my desire for southern smoked BBQ. Best of luck!

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
