Newb in Nebraska

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hey, my name is Gabriel, I'm 28, and I live in Omaha, Nebraska. I just started smoking recently after wanting a smoker for several years. My friend's dad always smoked food around holidays and I always wanted to learn how to make food that delicous.

I have a Charbroil Silver Smoker, Charbroil, and Grill
Product Number: 07201560

I'm pretty new and looking to learn alot from the forum. Already things are looking up, since this appears to be a very active forum, which I will love!

Actually I'm in Bellevue, but for simplicitys sake, I just say Omaha.

Welcome aboard. How many smokes do you have under your belt?

I'm still a total newb as well. I've used my brand new Brinkman smoke n pit a grand total of 4 times.. and once was just to grill some burgers.

Each time was mouth watering delicious.

Welcome to the smf gabriel. You are in the best place to learn. There is a wealth of information here.

I'd been using a smoker for over 3 years. Then i found this place and found out what i'd been doing wrong.

Welcome aboard.

I've only smoked once, I did a 5lb brisket that ended up somewhat tough but smokey and still pretty damn good, and some pork ribs. I didn't have a temp gauge, so keeping my temp was impossible. I've since ordered that and hope my next experience will be a little better.

I have some friends coming over this weekend, one of which is a vegetarian and another is not a huge fan of pork, and I'm debating my upcoming smoked dinner this weekend.

You'll get sucked in pretty quick.

I don't know what I'm doing next.. I have 10 lbs of chicken quarters.. two whole chickens.. and 10 lbs of featherbones.

I think I'll be doing the whole chickens... I got the idea from here.. and just can't get it out of my head.

Hey Bowvalley, know anyone around eastern or south central area who sells cheaper smoking woods? I would like to go to all wood smoking and get entirely away from charcoal except just to start my fire.
