Uffda from North Dakota

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello. My name is Kevin Attig and I am in the Air Force stationed in Grand Forks. I used an older electric smoker on mostly grouse and rabbit when I lived in Alaska. The smoker has since lost the war on rust and I received a Luhr Jensen Big Chief for Chirstmas. I was so excited, I smoked my first block of Cheddar that day! It turned out really well. I tried making some jerky a few weeks after that and it tasted great however, I did a poor job slicing the pieces and I had to finish it off in the oven and they turned out crispy. Last weekend I smoked my second batch of 5 one lbs blocks of Cheddars and Mozzarella. I would like to learn to do a brisket and ribs.

Skol Vikes!

Welcome Springer Guy!

You've come to the right place to learn. Please consider taking Jeff's email 5 day couse on smoking basics. It is a great place to start.

Feel free to ask lots of questions. The friendly folks here at SMF will make answer.

There are special forums for beef, pork, chicken, cheese, etc. Look through them to see how others have mastered new techniques and recipes.

Take care, have fun, and do good!

Hello from Jamestown

I just joined last week. Great to see a fellow Nodaker! Just bought a MES from Scheels in Fargo. Love it! Smoking 3 types of sausage as we speak.

Ditto on the Skol Vikes!!!!

Thanks for the welcome, all!! I must correct mcoppin. I am not a "nodaker". I'm originally from Minnesota (go Gophers!). I do, however, really like it here. Thanks for the note!

Welcome Springer guy,

One of the keys to a good briskett is low and slow: 1.5 hours per pound at 230 degrees. We are eager to share our collective experience.
