Dave from Vegas

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm Dave, from Las Vegas.  I'm very new to smoking meat, but not new to cooking.  I'm a New York Italian who has been cooking for years in one way or another.  I'm looking for a new hobby and I figured my love of ribs and slow smoked meats was perfect "excuse" to get a smoker and get down to business.  I've only done two pieces so far on my gas grill with a chip/chunk box.  The brisket turned out amazing, but the ribs were leathery and funky.  They tasted OK, but the texture made me toss them.  I have just got a 30" Masterbuilt Electric Smoker with the digital controls, hoping that helps me keep a more consistent temperature.  I'm gonna try the ribs again, and maybe a tri-tip.  I'm sure I will have plenty of questions as I go.  I can't wait to learn from all you Pros.

welcome1.gifto SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! I love Tri-tips.  Almost better than brisket!

 

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!
