Thread Starter 

Hello, all.  Glad I found this sight.  I've been grilling and smoking food for years, but this summer the BBQ bug has really hit hard.  I've been doing spareribs and chicken for main courses, with an occasional pork shoulder or brisket.  I also enjoy making crab or crawdad stuffed cheesy mushrooms, and jalapeno poppers.  Currently, I use a little chief that I've had for years for initial smoking, and finish up on my Huntington gas grill (with foil packs of smokewood).  I'm looking into the propane smokers that wally world carries (it's a weber or some other brand) side load for the perfect size.... or maybe I'll just invest in a Traeger at some point.  I usually use apple/cherry, mulberry, hickory, or occasionally "Stubbs" brand chips for flavor.  I use Sweet baby ray's hickory and brown sugar for BBQ sauce.  We like it sweet and smoky here in northeast Kansas.  Glad to be a part of the forums, and looking forward to learning some new recipes and picking up some more advanced techniques.

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!


I use a Camp Chef Smoke Vault propane smoker.  Can do anything I want with it.  Check those out too.


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!

Thanks for the heads up, Kat.  Today, I've got chicken quarters and St. Louis style ribs, and tips smokin' with stubbs smokewood.  Jalapeno poppers on the top rack.  Finishing up today with mesquite charcoal, and foil wood packs.  I'll smear a little SBR's sauce about 20 minutes before they're done, to let the sauce finish up.

Along with the little chief, I have a Weber that I converted from charcoal to electric with a thrift store hot plate, and some insulated 12/2 cord.  I usually only use this during the holidays... Thanksgiving/Christmas.  I don't enjoy using it quite as much as the side load models, and will be replacing with a larger propane smoker at some point.  Top load just seems too inconvenient to be very practical.
