Rookie in East Texas

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Glad to be a part of the group.  I am sure for a while I will be "lurking and learning."  Already have seen a great info and looking forward to learning more.


I live in Jacksonville, TX, 25 miles from my hometown of Tyler.  My vocation has taken me to many parts of the state of Texas and it is interesting to be back in the area where I grew up.


I began smoking about a year ago.  It was something that I had always wanted to do.  My son-in-law found me a smoker that a friend of his was selling and, after some initial reading and talking to others, I was on my way.  My best compliment was from my 94 year old Mom last Thanksgiving.  I told her that I would smoke the turkey instead of the traditional one she always bought from a local place in Tyler.  She said the turkey was better than any she had ever received from said establishment in Tyler.  Of course, she is my Mom and she is 94!  HA


I continue to try new rubs and, in the process, hope to develop one that is just right for me.


Good to be with you.
