New Texas Smoker

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Greetings to all from Pearland (suburb of Houston), Texas! Very new to smoking - had a Brinkmann Electric Gourmet smoker for about 4 months - very unhappy with the results (no temp. control), so Monday I bought myself a Christmas present of a 40" MES model 20070407 from Sam's club. I spent all afternoon Monday seasoning it (thanks to the instructions I found on this forum) and will be giving it a trial smoke with a couple of chickens tomorrow!

Welcome to the forum. Congrats on your present. It should provide you with the opportunity for many succesful smokes. Good luck with the birds and don't forget to take some pics, we love Qview

Welcome to SMF! I've been using an MES and it turns out some fine Q. It would be even better if the cook knew what he was doing! PDT_Armataz_01_23.gif

Make yourself at home and start smoking. Ask whatever questions you need to. smile.gif

Welcome to SMF Sgt. This is THE place.I live right north of Beaumont and visit friends in Pearland/Alvin everytime I am on my hitch home. Maybe we can hook up for a cold one in the future.

Welcome Sarge !!!!!


Completely off topic, but I bought my classic, 1970 Chevelle from a young guy, and his father, in Pearland.

Good to have you aboard.

Well I have died and gone to heaven! The chickens turned out wonderful. I brined them according to the brining recipe that I found here (what a wonderful website) & used no other seasoning - the wife & son both proclaimed it the best chicken ever and I've got to agree. Unfortunately I left my digital camera at the office so no qview. However I will be smoking 3 racks of ribs Friday and will get pics.
I was a fan of the old Sgt. Fury & His Howling Commandos PDT_Armataz_01_41.gif comic books back in the day and have used that handle for as long as I've been on the internet.
