Another Virgin

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Yep, that's me! I'm Joe from Riverside, Ca. 40 years old. I almost wrote 38. Must be old age. Bought me a large Treager about 6 months ago and still learning. New to smoking. I've smoked lots of Tri-Tips and a cooked few chickens in it. I usually take the Tri-Tips off when done and throw them in a small ice chest with a splash of red wine to steam for 20 minutes. YUM! Smoked some Salmon also. I need more experience with ribs and shoulder though. I'm sure this website will help me alot. Great website!!! You guys rock!

Welcome to the best smokin sight on the net.

It's hard to kill a butt (shoulder), give it a go.
After you build confidence with that the ribs will just come naturally. If you have any questions you can find the tips & answers on SMF, people are great & have a great wealth of knowledge around here.

Again Welcome & make yourself at home here.

Welcome to the SMF, you will find Butts are very forgiving. Do you have a Digital Thermometer, it will make life easier . Walmart has one for about $15
dollars and Lowes has these

Also check out Deejay Debi's site

I was politely asked to remove my avatar by the senior mod as this is a pg forum. No harm no foul. I'll have to find a different one. It was one I use on a Motocross forum. My bad

BTW...Thanks for all the nice replies. Feels like home already
