Smokin in Chi Town

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Just purchased a Great Outdoors Smokey Mountain 16" propane smoker at Walmart. I don't know how, but it rang up for $60 bucks and I never turned back. It listed for over a 100.

Anyway, I'm new to the art of smoking. I remember as a kid back in Poland, nearly everyone had a brick smoker in their yard, where I lived in the village. The smells of sausage and bacon stuck with me forever, and now that I got a house and family, I decided to start smoking myself.

So, I used the smoker about 6 times already, smoking Baby Back Ribs, Spare Ribs, Boston Butt (so good!), and Beef brisket (need more practice). My favorite has got to be the Baby Back ribs, with a dry rub applied 1-2 hours before taking it out of the fridge to let rest at room temperature.

Now that I'm getting a little better, I'm trying to improve my smoking skills with trying out new rubs and techniques. That's what I hope to get on this forum.

Welcome aboard, Martin! Fellow GOSM user here, love that thing! Sounds like a heckuva deal you got on that GOSM...mine was a 100 bucks 5 yrs ago. I also have a bit of Polish blood running though my veins...love kielbasa. Lots of info on methods for most everything you mentioned smoking, and some new ideas for potential smokes here and there.

Anyway, you'll find plenty here, whatever you can't locate info on, just drop a line in the forums and fire away with your questions. We'll be glad to help.
