been smoking a while now

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello All...
Been smoking for 5 years now. Started with a hot plate/pie pan of saw dust inside a flower pot. My wife liked the food (or most likely was embarrassed) and bought me a Big Green Egg. Love the egg. DFW TX

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 a few 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!

I just got my large BGE this summer. I have smoked once, a Boston Butt that had a dry rub and turned out fantastic. This week I'm going to smoke a Turkey: brined, injected, rubbed and butterred! I have smoked on many devices, but finall got the Egg.

I love my egg.  The turkey you cannot see was brined, injected, dry rubbed and then wrapped in cheese clothe and buttered.  The cheese cloth holds butter well. In the end I cut the cheese cloth off ABOUT 3 hours before I pull off the smoker.  I added chips when i cut the cloth off for a little more smoke.


Pulled pork is my favorite to smoke.
