Brand Spanking New

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

I have had an interest in smoking/grilling for a long time and just recently decided "the hell with it I'm going to do it".  I bought a 24" propane Camp Chef Smoke Vault which should be very efficient for this outside, back yard guy.  I also took the advice of many and purchased a Maverick Meat Thermometer.  So...I'm ready to go I guess.

 

My wife and I live in the Phoenix, Arizona area so will be able to bbq/smoke year round.  

 

I did the burn in on the Smoke Vault and smoked an inexpensive chicken just to get used to the smoker and thermometer.  Things went fairly well except I injected too much so it was a little juicy Lucy.  Besides that the flavor was excellent and it was cooked perfect.  Tomorrow I'm firing it up again and giving ribs a go.  For my first try I'm just going to use some Jack Daniels Pork Rub but eventually will experiment with rubs and sauces.  

 

I'm sure I will have a gillion questions along the way so get used to me.  Thank you in advance for all your help and suggestions.

Welcome Milo. Sounds like you got a good start. A good cooker, a maverick and joining up here. You will find all of the answers that you need and you will benefit from a world of knowledge. BTW, if you are going to be cooking as much as it looks, you will need to start sending out samples. Can't wait. Anyway, at least send pics. Joe
