Ello from north louisiana

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
well i just found this place, while browsing around on the net for some more ideas... so here i am! ...

who am i tho? .. hmmm well i am Freddy ... born and raised in north Louisiana ... and did some time in south Arkansas (it was not voluntary i swear, my mom drug me up there for almost 14 years before i could move back to Louisiana) ...

now that i am back home ... i have settled down with a family ... living in the country ... (grew up in the city) ...

i have had an old offset horizontal smoker that i used as a normal BBQ grill ... but a few months ago i decided to give smoking a try ... heh, it changed my life! ... now i want to do it every weekend! ... lol

i just picked up a few slabs of ribs and some sausage ... filled up the small part with charcoal and lit it ... after spreading the meats out up top .. with a small pan of water ...

about 4 hours later it was ready ... and a few min after that i couldn't even hardly walk i was so full ...

yeah i got a lot more to learn ... but i can tell it is gonna be a 'fulfilling' experience... lol ...

OK enough of the BS .. i could type for days...

Hmmm, I did 35 years worth of time in Southern Arkansas & loved nearly every minute of it. But I must say the last 15 years in the Ozarks have been much better. I wonder if it's the scenery or the fact that I'm that much farther away from North Louisiana that makes it better? Oh well welcome anyway.

i just found out the 'vintage' grill i have .. (IE, rusty) ... is still being made ... never knew i cost that much tho ... it has been around for at least 20 years ... and shows every one of them ..

a Brinkman Smoke-n-pit Pitmaster ...

if i had a choice it woulda been the Ozarks as well for me ... but south arkansas is where my mom took us .. (camden to be exact) ... it wasn't to bad ... but at the age i was .. the move sucked ... from a town of 80k+ to one that barely had 12k in it .. lol

a little later, i am going to head on into town and see what i can find in the meat dept ... then i am sure i will be making a few more posts in some other sections ... hah! ...
