Hey y'all. I went to college in Memphis and graduated about a year and a half ago and work in Memphis now. I have been eating great BBQ here for a while and figured I would try my hand at it. I have done a few butts, racks of ribs, and this past weekend did a pork loin. I have a horizontal offset smoker that was given to me by a friend who inherited it with the house he moved in to. Needless to say it is not the greatest smoker, but for now it does the job (I plan to invest in a better one once I save up the funds). Each time I smoke something I try and do some research and try a new rub. I look forward to hearing other and more experienced smokers opinions/tips/advice.
Something I haven't tried yet, but want to, is to start smoking sides for my meals. I always smoke the meat and have chips and dips and other easy sides but I would love to served a smoked side.
Thanks for having me and I apologize for all spelling/grammar errors.
