Smoking away in Boise

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi to everyone! I have always loved to cook, and took up smoking as a way to do so this summer. A friend of mine came down and showed me how to roll fatty's and how to assemble abt's. I was hooked. Since then, I have smoked tri tip, brisket, short ribs, skirt steak and pork butt. Gotta say, i am a fan of the beef... I am currently using a brinkmann pitmaster deluxe that i have modified with tuning plates and lower exhaust tube. I am also working on two other smokers. I have a endless supply of propane tanks at my disposal of every size imaginable. So my options are limitless. As i progress, i will post some qview of the meat and smokers that i am making/using. Thats all for now from Bronco Nation!~! I have to go add wood to the fire!

Welcome to the site, what do you have going on the smoker?

Great that you found the site and are feeling the addiction, rare that you find others out there that know what a fattie is so your friend must know his Q. Stick around here and before long you'll be teaching him a few things.

Im definitely feeding the addiction. I have done 12 fatties this year since july, and countless hoards of abt's. I have gotten out of bed at 130 in the morning to start smoking a pork butt, just so it would be ready by game time. I love this art and plan on continuing as long as possible. I am currently smoking half of a 5lb tenderloin that i wrapped in a bacon weave like a fatty. Winco had tenderloin in the bag on sale for 3.50 a lb. Couldnt pass up the opportunity to try something new. I do love meat, and cant pass up a good brisket or tri tip, but i am curious what else can be done on the smoker with good beef. Im always open to suggestions.

Have you done a chuckie yet?
Smoking a chuckie has to rank in some of my all time top favorites.
At least every few months I smoke a chuck roast or bottom round and make Italian beef from it.

Have you tried a brisket?
I recently got into smoking briskets and turning the point into burnt ends and it has become one of my favorite/smoky/melt in your mouth form of Q that I have ever tasted.

Nothing short of ideas and different things to try on the site.

I haven't tried a chuck yet.. but would love to. I have done a brisket. about a 10 lb'er. Took a long, long, ..i mean it took lots of beer. The burnt ends were superb. Made up a batch of them the day after and threw them back on the smoker. They disappeared quickly.
