Hello from Colorado

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello to all.

I'm Gerald and rather new to smoking.

My loving wife got me a ECB about 5 years ago for fathers day. The first test run was a such a disaster that it sat in the shed until 6 months ago.

I could not get it hot or stay lit. So I converted it to electric and started out simple......

Now after:
1 Whole Chicken
Spare Ribs
2 large Colorado trouts (the best so far)
Beef short ribs (slightly under smoked and over temped)

I'm hooked and crave smoking....but my wife keeps me under control....kind of.

Got to run, need to prep two chickens for today...my wife's request.

Thanks guy.

We live in Fort Collins and love it here.

The only problem with smoking is my wife is a little is impatient...not a good combination with smoking.

But I'm working on that, and with the her request of the chickens for tonight I think she is coming to light (smoke).

I hope to learn a lot from here.

Thanks guys.

Welcome to SMF fellow Coloradan.....I am in Denver, so if something comes up...give me a shout....Come up to the Fort to see relatives now and then.
Plus have to stop at Jaks for all my camping needs.

Good luck with the chicken.....
