Finally got serious

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello all!

My name's Darren and I live just south of Indy. A couple of years ago I was at a buddy's house in Tennessee who smoked a pork butt one Saturday. Watching his process got me interested so when I got home I bought a Chargriller with the side smoke box. Results were spotty to say the least.

This year I started getting serious about smoking and I think it's paid off. I'd lurk around the forums to get ideas and have not been disappointed yet! So far this summer I've smoked a pork butt, a chicken, a rack of ribs, and this past Sunday a pork loin. Everything has turned out wonderful. This Saturday I'm attempting my first multi-smoke. I've got some friends and family coming over and I've told them I'm going to get 2 butts to throw on the grill. I finally feel comfortable enough to cook for other people so hopefully all will go well!

My pork loin that I just did turned out real nice. This was the first picture taken from my phone so forgive the thumb in the corner. icon_smile.gif

I've got a few more pictures still on my camera at home that I figured I'd post when I got a chance to move them over to my PC.
