Smoking Newcomer

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Well, I've been lurking behind the posts checking out what everyone has to say and looking for tips and tricks to this art of smoking. I started off a few weeks back with a brisket flat to break in my MES 30. I must say that I surprised myself with a very tasty end product. I moved to ribs the following week with less than expert results (by my standards...although the family loved them). Come Thanksgiving, I made Jeff's buttermilk brined smoked turkey which turned out awesome! This brings me to this weekend...plans are for another brisket flat tomorrow...hopefully batting 99! I am headed out in the morning to pick up a 3" vent elbow to put on the vent to maintain a better temp because it is so windy here in OK. Happy smoking everyone!

Jumping into it feet first!  Turkey and brisket two of the more difficult meals to get right.  Good Job,  Let us know how the brisket turns out.
