Greetings from Metro Detroit!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hey!!! New to the forums and smoking in general. I travel to texas often and fell in love with the BBQ. I also started watching a lot of BBQ pit masters and thought if those guys can do it so can I.


I started smoking ribs on my Blue Ember grill. Needless to say I couldn't get a good smoke mostly due to my lack of knowledge about the process. One of the most important which I've found out reading forums is NEVER trust the stock temp gage. 


Anyway I've since bought a masterbuild propane smoker. I'm using the cast iron mod and plan on sealing the doors with oven seal.

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!
