A newbie from Iowa

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hi! My name is Hank (female), odd I know but it is what it is. I did my first smoke yesterday and am so excited. It all turned out perfect. Made a turkey breast, a fatty, and some ABT's. Am raiding the fridge and freezer. Husband is laughing because he said the cat and dog may be in danger now.
This is a great forum. I do have a question. How are the ABT's re-heated? Wanted to take some to work.
Thanks for letting me join.

Welcome to a great place with great people with lots of info.

You can reheat ABT's in the microwave or i prefer the oven,make a little less soggy.

Welcome Hank -

Glad to have you aboard. Not alot of females here but it's a friendly group of gentleman and very helpful. Sounds like you had a great smoke and got right into th fattys and the ABTs now you hooked!

I prefer to reheat my ABTs in a toaster oven when posible. Even bought one for the office just for that purpose, but a microwave will do just put a paper towel on it don't spatter if they pop ad it won't hold the moisture in the bacons. Ask any questions you may have - someone will have the answers!

Have you found Jeff's FREE How To Smoke Meat PDF?

Thanks to All!

For the nice welcomes. I have the smoker going again today. This time I have pork chops, cabbage, potatoes, fattys, and of course the ABT's. Like I said in my earlier post, the dog and cat are in fear for their lives as I've been running around looking for anything to smoke. Neighbor kids will start calling this a Hansel & Gretel House. icon_smile.gif
Thanks again to all of you! Oh, I do have one more question. Do you all weigh like 500 lbs? All this good food, I can just see myself ballooning out.
I'm so happy to be here.

If that doesn't work and your'e not the shy type the people on the forums are next to none for great info. All you have to do is ask. Remember low and slow....Thin and blue!

All the best in your smoking endeavours....

Howdy Hank,
Welcome to SMF! I'm not from Iowa, but just 35 miles or so from Sioux City over in NE Nebraska. I'm pretty new to SMF and smokin' in general, and this forum has been really helpful.
