Jerry from Batavia, IL about 50 miles outside Chicago. Love barbeque meat and love being outdoors. Have been a serious griller for about 10 years (chicken breast, hamburgers, vegetables and seafood). Thought it was time to step up to BBQ and smoking.
Have young children, so have little time to spend smoking meat - So, I started with a propane smoker (The Smoke Hollow LP), as I thought this would be a little less time consuming than tending to a fire all day.
Finished my 1st session on Saturday, baby back ribs and pork shoulder - Great smoke, great flavor, but not as tender as I expected (probably didn't cook long enough).
Posted a thread on my first session if anyone would be kind enough to advise.
I can see this becoming addicting.
