I am a recent transplant from Maryland to SW Florida. I am still on my first dedicated smokers, a Masterbuilt electric purchased about 18 months ago. I Still have my trusty 30 year old Weber kettle (and a cheap propane grill for quick and less flavorful grilled foods). The whole low and slow is fairly new to me (with the acquisition of the Masterbuilt). I really didn't try it on old trusty, although I know it is very capable.
I have been working out a few failures with chicken and pork. I have also had some delicious successes and well.
I just bought some pork belly and am about to cure then smoke my first go at bacon! (I'm pretty excited about the whole thing).
Looking forward to learning from the group and sharing successes (and failures). Anybody else from SWFL, please give me a shout out. I'm still looking for quality local markets to find the meats and poultry I want. Pork belly and local chickens are not proving to be easy. (Maryland was awash in these local farms.)
