Newbie from New England

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hello there everyone.  


As many have said before, I am SO glad to have found this site.  All the preliminary information I have used in my first few rounds has helped out a great deal. 


My sons bought me a GOSM propane unit for Father’s Day and we have been having a blast with it. We have made our rubs and tweaked them to some of the flavors we like.  So far we have gone through a turkey, a picnic shoulder, a brisket, pork loin and a couple chickens.


So far everything has come out fairly good (although the brisket needs a little fine tuning and the burnt ends need A LOT of work).  I am looking forward to learning more along the way and getting better with each batch. 


There is Bayou Classic assembly waiting in the tool box so I can fine tune the temperature even further in the hopes of doing jerky and salmon.


Here are some of the pictures.

welcome1.gifto SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! Would you mind updating your profile to show the other SMF members where you are located?  Might meet some neighbors!


You might want to check out Jeff's Free 5 day E-Course, it has great information to use no matter your skill level!


We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. 

If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.


If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!


If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
