Haha, I don’t know how many other people on this forum have a framed autographed pic of Freddie making the catch over their desk at work, so I’m glad I can add something new to the mix! Fun fact: when he signed it for me, I asked him if he could also write The People’s Champ on it. When I asked him, his face lit up like a Christmas tree and he yelled “my man!” PRICELESS.
Flyboys, good to see not only a neighbor, but another Flyers fan. Watched the preseason game last night and am certainly excited about the youth coming to the team in the next year or two.
Mrshep70, I have a very, very beginner setup. I have a Master Forge MFX784BDP gas smoker I purchased from Lowe’s last weekend and a standard Chargrill gas grill for basic burgers, steaks, etc. I originally had a Masterbuilt smoker I got from Home Depot about a month ago, but after several fixes and attempts, I was never able to get the temp below 300 degrees. Ever. No matter what I did, haha. I did a whole chicken on the Master Forge right out of the box, and aside from initial lighting problems, everything went as smoothly as possible. The temperature held perfectly throughout the whole process, and the chicken got me very excited for all other smoking ventures going forward.
Again, can’t state enough how excited I am to try all kinds of new sauces, rubs, and techniques that everyone is sharing on here. You all have been doing this much longer than I have and I’m ready to read, listen, and learn accordingly!
