Yet another smoke junkie

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

I grew up in Texas, and I now live in California.  Naturally, living in TX I became addicted for life to Mesquite Smoked Barbecue!  I've been grilling religiously with mesquite and hickory for years, but just this summer ventured into true Smoking.  How did I and my guests like it you ask?  Well let me put it this way:  One bite, and we are hooked for life!


This forum has been my major source of inspiration and research.  I would like to thank each and every one of you for being the wonder chef's you are!


The new tools I have acquired include an MES 40, a Brinkman Gourmet Electric ( which regardless of its limitations has produced incredible results ), and a Maverick E-72 thermometer.  I plan to get an AMNPS eventually, and buy or build a wood burning smoker at some point.


I should also inform you that I am fiercely committed to gorging myself on many other fine cuisines, including but not limited to:

Cajun / Creole





Anything and everything hot and spicy!  I have a tattoo of a jalapeno.  I am not joking.


Long live the smoke!

I tried searching but couldn't find it.


Isn't there a coupon code for Amazen pellet smokers for members of this forum?  I saw the cyber Monday code but it doesn't work anymore.


Thanks guys!

Thanks for the welcome everybody.  It's good to see some Texans and some Californians here.  And even a fellow jalapeno tattoo bearer!


Barney that's me in the reflection.  So yes, it is an alien.
