Hi I'm Craig and I have a problem...

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
The problem is I found this site, I think I have an addiction to meat smokingicon_smile.gif .

My old Brinkman bit the dust, I found this site and bought the Great Outdoors propane smoker at walmart for $99.00 after reading the suggestions from some of the existing threads.

I seasoned it yesterday (the smoker) and I'm smoking some Snow Goose jerky right now. Everything seems to be going great. I read some of the propane smokers have problems with lower temps. I can adjust mine (loaded with the goose) to 150 ish on low.

I'll let you know how the Snow Goose jerky tuns out. I got some deer lined up right behind it once the goose is done.

you found the right place

Smoking adiction is a very serious disease and must be treated frequently.
There is even a step program here , like , jerky of several kinds , briskets , ribs , chicken , fish , fattys , apetisers , abts , beef roasts , pork roasts , more jerky , pig candy , smoked vegies , ....... well that is just a few of the steps PDT_Armataz_01_18.gif
One of the most important steps in the treatment of your disease though , is taking pics of all of your smokes and sharing them here . That step is really important for the rest of us addicts that may not be able to be doing one of the other steps on that given day icon_smile.gif

Welcome , enjoy , and have fun PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Snow Goose came out OK, not bad fo the first batch thru the smoker.

I had two chip boxes in it, the one in back was a bread pan. I think it flamed up a little. My jerky in the back of the box dried up a little to much, stuuf in the front was a lot better.

Running the deer jerky thru with just one pan to see if it make a difference.

PS. just curious what do you tell the doctor when he asks you if you "smoke"? I mean do you just give him a big "hell yes" or what?PDT_Armataz_01_27.gif

Just one of those smart a$$ days for me ( it's both the heat AND the humidity eek.gif )

But my response would be along the lines of " well , what would you like to smoke ? " From there a long description of my enjoyment of smokin' fattys , butts , and turds.
If the good DR ain't caught on yet PDT_Armataz_01_18.gif I'd just do my best to recall some of the more creative thread tittles I've seen here and hope he's taking notes on ,"can in the butt chicken , awesome butt rubs , great smokin' breasts" and finish by saying, that" my hard wood rocks and works best for the long and slow process that makes everyone I know's mouth water" PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Your milage may vary , but I am not a fan of DRs ( oh , except the few that saved my life and the reason I'm still here to post cool.gif ) but really enjoy messing with them on the rare ocasion I have to visit them PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

Some days are better than others but the addiction doesn't go away. Just be careful looking at the qview, sometimes you can almost smell it...that just makes the symptoms more compelling.
Welcome and good luck!

Welcome to the forum! Looking forward to your qview from the new smoker. Oh ya...there is no cure for the smoking meat blues....just keep on smoke'n.

cgeb, there are a LOT of things that are far worse to be addicted to than smoking meat!! My wife thinks I have almost officially lost my mind for always wanting to smoke something, for spending way too much time in the meat dept (even when not shopping for meat), for wanting to take pictures of every step of the smoking adventure.... Hell, I can't remember the last time I went to a bar with the guys. I'm happier with a tasty beverage beside my keyboard spending time in this forum!

Oh thank goodness! I'm so glad there's help/hope!!!!
