Hello fellow smokers.
I have been lurking here since May reading all the great information and decided to join. I come from the great northern state of Minnesota...home of Famous Dave's BBQ. Us northern smokers love our meat and love learning tips, secrets and recipe's from you southern smokers. I have been interested in cooking since I was a kid and have owned over seven cafes and restaurants during the past 25 years. I have always enjoyed eating BBQ and smoked meat, fish and seafood but never cooked that way in my restaurants.
I decided at age 57 it was time to learn a new skill so I bought my first smoker in May, a 40" electric Masterbuilt. I right away dove in head first and went smoke crazy with pork butts, pork ribs, beef ribs, chicken, turkey and my favorite...smoked salmon and shrimp!
After only 2 1/2 months I outgrew the Masterbuilt smoker and this past weekend bought a "Pellet Pro" smoker from Smoke Daddy. Wow! what a beauty this smoker is. I have already used it to smoke a pork loin, pork spare ribs and some whole chickens! Later this week my daughter is having a baptism party and asked me to bring some pulled pork for sandwiches. I cant wait to smoke a couple 8 lb bone in butts for the party. Anyone have a recipe for a good sauce to go on the pulled pork sammys?
Sorry this post is so long but as you can tell I am having a blast and am smoking up a storm! Now all I need are a few more mouths to chow down all this food! LOL Take care guys and thanks for all the good advice.
