A lot of Richmond smokers!  Sweet!  We are going to have to get a smoke off some time for bragging rights!  I actually just finished smoking a brisket and it is resting now.  I am going to post a Q view in a bit.  That dude is looking nice and I can't wait to cut into it.  Started it at 11 last night stayed up until about 4 so I could keep the smoke rolling but the beer caught up to me and I had to give it a final load and go to bed.  I was up at 6:30 adding more wood and taking some goody's powders to kill the hangover.  It cooked much faster than I thought it would.  After 7 hrs it was at 170 internal.  I let it go for 3 more hours then wrapped it in foil.  I took it off at 11 am then wrapped it in a towel and put it in the cooler to rest.  I am going to cut into it in 30 minutes.  I can't wait to see if it is as juicy as I think it is going to be.  Oh yeah, I can't wait to try my new homemade BBQ sauce either.

Tiki.. your ready.. don't count your self out.  If you read this forum and have fun when you are cooking then it will be good I promise.  I just picked up 8 butts, 2 top rounds and 2 briskets for a smoke tonight.  I will be sure to take some picts also.  I like the idea of a smoke off.  It would be fun.  At least it would be cool to meet the fellow smokers here in Ric.

Last week I smoked some wings and sauced them up and threw them on the grill to char a bit.  Damn they were good and just fell off the bone...  Thanks on the brisket.  We will have to plan something in a month or so and all of us get together cook some food and drink some beer.   cheers.gif

What were you doing in Mexico?  What brought you to Richmond?  I have only been here since July of last year.  We will have to get together sometime.

I had been going to Mexico for years ( on vacation ) about 5 years ago I bought a vacation home outside of Tulum  ( between Akumal and Tulum ) beautiful place 5 min walk to the best beach in the world !    Always dreamed about living there , so when the real estate market went soft, and my wife of 34 years decided to call it quits ...

I moved from Jersey to Mexico , started a little house care biz ( a lot of Ex- Pats who owned vacation homes or rental property's there had no one to take care of them or take care of the renters )    I LOVED it    however the bad economy in the states really hurt the tourist trade , and some home owners as well.

During that time , a client of mine who was also going threw a divorce from Richmond and I became friends , when she was down we went out , I gave her tours of the Mayan  ruins , little off the beaten trips to the jungle and so on , and well after a few years ...........Fell in LOVE and moved back to the states  to Richmond and here I am


I really like it here , and we both sold our homes in Mexico and enjoy our new home in Richmond , we are a short walk to the James , and a 5 min drive to down town Richmond .280683_2081710414375_1593531798_32013004_7911714_o.jpg
