My name is Dave, and I'm from Southern California!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

 

 

I'd like to introduce myself.  My name is Dave, and I have never SUCCESSFULLY smoked anything in my life! 

 

I do love BBQ however, and I am looking to step up my Backyard grilling game.

 

I recently received a Bradley Electric Smoker for Christmas, and want to do my best to do this thing some justice.

 

I have read a lot of reviews on this product, and a good portion of them seem to be negative, but hopefully I can familiarize myself with its' wants and needs and be able to get some practice in before I decide I need to grab a different unit altogether.  (Plus I dont want to hurt the gift-giver's feelings.  LoL)

 

Im interested in smoking the basics: TriTips, Briskets, Butts, Birds, and hopefully some Sausages/Jerkies down the road.

 

I have perused this site for a few days and seen a LOT of AWESOME advice and recipes that I look forward to jumping into.

 

thank you for letting me be part of this community, and I look forward to chatting with you!

 

Dave

SQWIB.. looks like I'm gonna have to get to know you.  LoL.

 

I ALMOST flew to Philly to see the Birds play the Skins on New Years Day, but Xmas bonuses came too late.  Dammit.

 

Flew out to our First Home game at the Linc last year for the last game of the season, and the wife is HOOKED.  (Thank GOD!)
