Greetings from St. Louis

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello all, very new to smoking here. I love to grill, and do so 3-4 times a week, even if it's just boneless skinless chicken breasts.

That said,
I have a Brinkman Smoke'N Grill that was given to me by my father in law, and I'm going to learn how to barbecue.

Got some mesquite and hardwood charcoal today, and I'm going to see about doing a whole chicken to start. Looking forward to learning here.

Welcome aboard the SMF! Be careful with the mesquite as it can be over powering. You may want to mix it with something like hickory or cherry. Of course, it's all personal preference. Good luck with the bird and keep us posted!

I used to grill 3 to 4 times a week too......then I got my GOSM.

Now I smoke one day of the week and we eat like kings the rest of the week. My wife is a pork junkie and I simply love to make the best possible food I can and keep my family happy and licking sauce off their fingers.

Welcome to SMF.....you grill is going to miss you. icon_sad.gif

Truth be told....I grilled hamburgers today because my wife didn't want the kid's eating all her pulled pork....not ours...hers..tongue.gif

Well, after doing a bit of research, I've canceled the smoking with mesquite.

Instead, I picked up some hickory chunks and a small (3.5 lbs) brisket from Costco. I'm smoking it in the morning on my ECB.

Using a basic rub from Stephen Raichlen's Sauces and Rubs book for the moment, though I plan to purchase Jeff's to see what all the hubub is about.

I'll get some pics posted after the smoking session. :)

IMHO Mequite is good with hickory, apple, approcot, pear, and or mild wood.

Just smoke lightly with it and it's not bad.
