Hey Ya'll,

Thanks to all who make this a really good forum for us wannabe's. I am here in search of the perfect rub, that perfect smoke ring and bark. The things that make smoking/grilling worth it.

Thanks for letting me share your experiences.

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...

First off welcome Lunchbox to SMF. You'll like it here cause there are abunch of good folks here that would just love to help you out with just about anythignto do with smoking. We really like to have newbies here because they can bring in a new propective to how things are done. There's nothing like a new set of eyes to give and new way to make things that little differant to make things alittle better. So I hope you know about the Qview here.
Here's a link to photobucket it's free and easy to download pictures. Then if your really new to smoking Look up the E-course.
It's also free and it will give you the basics of smoking. So after all of that you just need to go grab something to smoke and if you have any question just post them here and we will answer it quickly so you don't have any mishaps with your smoke.

First let me Welcome you to the SMF.

To answer all three of your questions....

I second the choice Jeff's rub, I got the Rub recipe and the BBQ sauce recipe when I joined up. It has saved me major bux over the past 12 months. I make it by the pail-full. I love the stuff.

The perfect smoke ring cannot be had IMO with an Electric only rig.
So that leaves you with Charcoal, A Stick burner, A Gasser or a combo thereof.
The smoke ring while pretty to look at does not add to the flavour of the meat.

The perfect bark? Now that is the easiest one to answer
It is made by your best friends greeting to you as you arrive home tired and worn out at the end of a long day. icon_smile.gif

Tell me I'm wrong I dare ya. icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the warm welcome. I appreciate all the experience here and the willingness to share without intimidating those of us wanting to learn and be a part.

In that vein, I am taking the liberty of providing two things that I have used extensively that I can't find after searching the board.

#1 - Raichlen's "The Barbeque Bible" - Recipes from all over the world. Great for getting you to thinking about wild and wonderful ways to use MEAT & FIRE.

#2 - Cook'n'Kettle - Cast iron kettle grill originally built in Tulsa. Mine has been handed down from my Grandfather, to Dad, to me. Expensive but "Hey, honey; It's an heirloom!" Super Grill/Smoker/Rottisserie. http://www.cooknkettle.com

If this is old news, forgive me. Just want to contribute what I can.
