i smell like a firepit

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

hello friends:

my name is justin, i'm from outside of pittsburgh. my wife is a big fan of smoked meats, so for mother's day i bought a cheap smoker for her to try out, which means i bought a smoker to smoke meat for her to make her happy. i'm quite new to this, but i've been watching a ridiculous amount of bbq pitmasters on tv. so far we've kept it rather simple, did a brisket for my maiden smoking, and made pulled pork with it. today i made some ribs for her. smoking meats is fun and all, but it really needs to be planned well in advance so i can babysit my pit. right now i'm working with a brinkman smoke n grill. i already moved the legs to the outside, and drilled some holes in the pan for airflow.  i'm here just to absorb knowledge like a sponge to try to impress my wife with my abilities. i have to come clean i've been creeping on the pages reading stuff, but now i'm officially a member. thanks for having me, and look forward to getting my smoke on.

Welcome Justin! As you have found there's lots of good information here. Don't be afraid to ask a question or use the search feature.

Most importantly show off you smokes. Even the failures. That's one of the best ways to get feedback and help!

Here is a photo of the ribs I just made. They surely were smokey.

Howdee Justin,


Nice to meet you, those are some good lookin ribs!


As to the smelling like smoke if you could bottle it, I'd buy it for perfume or after shave.
