Hi Everyone,

 

I am new here and my experience in barbeque and smoking is "newbie" unless you are talking about eating it :icon_wink:. I am from the Philly area and I would like to start Barbequing with a smoker. I am looking at getting a Webber smoker just not sure which one to get 18" or 22". I have been thinking of doing this for years but life always got in the way. Why am I starting now? well a few of our friends and us are going away on July 4 weekend for vacation in the Outer Banks and each family needs to cook dinner so I thought.......... BBQ. I am not sure if I will be up to speed by then but with a little help I think I can.

 

Questions:

 

1. Do you guys keep a log book and if you do what are you documenting?

2. Does anyone have a base line rub and sauce that I can work off of? I know this is a loaded question but I have no clue where to start.

 

 

Thanks in advance for everyone's help,

Bob

welcome aboard!

 

do a little search and check out the free 5 day course Jeff has put together that covers all the basics and then some. he also has available recipes for sauce and dry rub that are great and also a good launching ground for when your ready to adventure out. he also has released a great book that covers most everything you need to get started, these are all in my library or on the pantry, just my recommendation for where to start. the most important is spend time reading and reading more because there is an incredible amount of resource / information on this site.   :beercheer:
