Hi, my name would be Flip and I like meat.

My neighbors think I'm a little on the odd side because I live in NE (west of Boston MA) and grill all year round on my Webber 18.5.

I picked up a WSM from one of my local hardware shops (Ray's True Value), grabbed a couple of therm's (polder and an et72 (shoulda gone with a 73!)), and purchased a membership at Sam's (used to do BJ's). That was on the 29th of January.

Did I mention I like meat?

Right. So why a WSM? I wanted a smoker that didn't need too many mod's to work the way I wanted it. I didn't want to have to add tuning plates or baffles or charcoal baskets. I wanted to be able to do a longer smoke (butts anyone?) without having to add fuel every couple of hours. I've used a Charbroil SS with side firebox and wasn't super impressed in the default configuration.

I've smoked every weekend since then (3x). First was the ribs for Superbowl (I knew I should have put money on that game!). Then came a 9lb picnic and beans for dinner with the mother in law. This past weekend was two whole chickens with beans and ABT's with the sister and her family. Had to do one chicken on the grill due to two pots of beans and a slight lack of room on the WSM.

My wood? So far, only hickory and mesquite. I've got a line on some apple though. Can't wait for that one.

Howdy. The name's Flip. But you can call me whatever suits your fancy. Oh, and I like meat.

Hi Ray, Bill, Flip, or who ever you are. I hope you like meat cuz that's what this place is all about. You should check into getting a WSM if you get the chance and maybe an ET 73... I'd skip the 72. Ohhh and don't forget to go to Sam's to get a bunch of meat.. I hope you like meat.

Glad to have you here with us and looking forward to your posts and sense of humor. Hang out and keep posting.

You do like meat.. don't you?

Not so much a writer... I think it's got more to do with boredom at the office ;)

Thanks though. Seems quite the informative little slice of internet you've all got here. That search button works wonders!

Howdy & welcome to SMF-low & slow with tbs around here. So quit flipping your meat and get back to work!!

Sure do!

Place tofurkey in oven at 350º for 3 hrs
Baste as needed to keep from drying out
Remove from oven when tofurkey is fully cooked
Tent under Aluminum foil for 30 minutes
Remove from foil
Slice into hearty servings
Place on disposable platter
Throw in trash - Go to Subway if you want to eat healthy.

So wait, are you implying that it's not healthy to wrap _everything_ in bacon before you cook it?

Say it aint so!

Slight change in plans...

Pork tenderloin tonight. And ee gads, it's already seasoned. And it's going in the oven.

But that's because I'm making Fatties for tomorrow night. Two of em. For me and the misses. On honey wheat english muffins with eggs and cheese. Yummo!

Found the JD at the second grocer I stopped at on the way home. Frozen, of course, but at least they were 2 for $5. Picked up 6 and might stop back if the Fatties come out splendidly. Now to wait for the thaw.

Welcome to the site, Flip.

You will be back for some more JD after the fatty smoke I am sure. I saw JD chubs for 1.49 ea at the local Kroger on Sat and picked up 8 of them. I froze them for later.

I need to get a decent windbreak set up for my ECB in these temps.
