Hello from Cali...

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

Recently got into smoking. Girlfriends dad bought me a cheapo vertical water smoker from harbor freight in payment for fixing a car. Best 36 dollar gift EVER PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif. Done a few tri tips and some baby backs. Looking forward to many more and love all of the useful information that is available.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I will have to setup a photobucket soon. Pops had some ribs from the last batch and came home the next day with 8 lbs of babybacks. Guess I am already in need of that bigger smoker if I am not able to come up with something else. Looking forward to trying to 3-2-1 or 2-2-1 method. These look pretty meaty so 3-2-1 might be in order. Thank you again for the warm welcome. Happy Smoke!

Yeah, I was not able to find it online, thinking of getting another one for larger get togethers, I happened to see it one day while there with my girlfriends dad and he bought it for me as repayment for fixing his car.
