Howdy, from College Station!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Howdy! I've been a barbecue aficionado for a little while now, but finally, with my wife's prodding, bought a smoker and am now trying to figure out what to do with it! While I was perfectly happy traveling around Texas, sampling the finest smoked meats available, my wife would prefer I make it for her!

I am the proud owner of a Oklahoma Joe offset horizontal smoker. I have already read about its deficiencies, and have begun rectifying those shortcomings.

So far, I have ruined one perfectly fine brisket, and one perfectly fine rack of pork ribs. As it happens, my Great Pyrenese has been eating really well lately!

I look forward to learning some tips and tricks and sharing my [mis]adventures with ya'll!

Welcome to the site J.  If you picked a brisket as one of your first smokes, you definitely jumped into the deep end.


Enjoy your smoking venture.

I am a believer in Ok Joe's cookers, like you say they just need some help and have a learning curve for sure

one of the first ones I 'learned' to cook on was an Ok Joe horizontal offset


I am pretty new to the this forum, but I am sure these guys have some already existing discussions on these cookers


Happy smoking!
