Long Island, NY - First Time Smoker

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi All,
My name is Frank. I'm from Long Island, and I've never smoked anything until today. For my 40th B-Day I was given a Perfect Flame vertical(propane) smoker.
So, today I smoked (2) racks of baby back ribs and (4) meatloafs, and used mesquite (soaked) wood chips. It was definitely a learning experience and had so much fun in the process. During my smoke, I had a few questions that I posted, and got some helpful immediate responses. You guys rule!
Anyway, everything came out out great, and I'm looking forward to many more great smokes!

Welcome Frank, Glad to have you with us. This is the place to learn, lots of good info and helpful friendly Members.

Be sure to check out Jeff's 5 Day Smoking Basics eCourse, you can find it here it's "FREE"...5 Day eCourse

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics... Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Yea Frank. It is the exact smoker u have.... If u have any questions about, feel free to ask. One thing for sure, do NOT trust the built in thermo on it. Buy a good digital therm..

Ya know, Mike...I had a feeling about the thermo not being accurate....Yes, I will definitely look into a oven thermo or something like that.

Thanks!
Frank

If you dont mind me asking, what part of long island? I live in East Meadow, its not very often you hear about people on the island using a smoker, the guy two doors down ironically built a smokehouse though. Im jealous.
