My name is Larry and I'm from Central Pennsylvania. Been bouncing in and out of the food industry for the last 20 years, mostly slinging pizzas and other bar foods. However, none of that background has included any smoking of meats.
Since settling down and starting a family, I have become more and more interested in the smoking arts. I've been doing the basics (ribs, chicken, butts, briskets) for the last couple of years, with much success. My equipment has been a cheap electric bullet smoker that gets the job done in my limited space. I recently came to discover that during this long, brutal winter said smoker has become dwelling of a family of chipmunks, which means I need to start shopping for a replacement. This all lead me to this forum, which I must say, is a revelation. I mean, come on... FATTIES??? What? That's a thing??? I can't wait to make one once I have a chipmunk-free smoker.
One question I have though, is there a glossary of abbreviations anywhere? Most i can figure out. But some I see being thrown around I can't hash out.
Anyways, I look forward to poking around and hopefully contributing to this wonderful community.
