My name is Tom, I stumbled upon this site while looking up some info on smoking a brisket. I've already had some great advice from folks here, so I'm sure this is going to be a regular haunt for me.
Not really new to smoking, grilling or BBQing, but also know that there is a lot that I don't know. So, I'm very excited to pick some brains for wisdom. Oh yeah, you know that line "there's no such thing as a stupid question"? Pretty soon, I'll ask the exception that proves the rule.
The things I do well at are pulled pork, baby back ribs, and pork steaks. Not a real fan of pork chops. I'd be interested in learning how to master beef ribs and chicken.
I've had some success with turkey and brisket, but also have had some failures too. One that has me in court next week for food poisoning. (joke)
Have also worked up some interest in doing a beef clod from watching YouTube videos, but everyone I've talked to who has done one has advised against it. So, if you have had some success with the clod, I'd like to hear from you.
About me: I am 50 years old. I retired from the Army in 2008 after 26 years and moved back to my hometown (Jefferson City, MO). I work as an emergency response planner now. :-|
Coming up on 30 years of marriage, two grown kids, two awesome grandkids. I like beer, the KC Chiefs, the St. Louis Cardinals, the St. Louis Blues, military stuff and am learning to play electric guitar. Too bad the acid rock era is over. I make some awesomely weird sounds on that thing...mostly by accident.
Anyway - glad to be here, hope to hear from you all and looking forward to learning a lot from you all.
Take care and I wish you and yours a safe, happy and healthy 2014.
