Hello: Former Lurker Reporting In From Houston

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
My hobby is cooking. I like to smoke, but with everyone's kids reaching adulthood, family get togethers are down. I'm down to cranking-up my smoker 3-4 times a year. But I've resolved to get back to smoking. I'll just put the extras in the freezer.

I've visited the forum periodically, but only just joined SMF. I've used the forum to refine my techniques. Yesterday discovered fatties on SMF, and was inspired to make a couple today for Thanksgiving. I also made a pork shoulder, a beef shoulder, a duck, and jalapeno poppers. The fatties were an especially big hit.

I have been smoking on a New Braunfels smoker for probably the last 6 years. Not sure of the model, and the manufacturer no longer exists. But the unit is similar to a Brinkman Smoke`N Pit Smoke King. The design is workable, but has some flaws. Basically, the smoker is a jack of all trades, but master of none. It's not a design I recommend.

Welcome to the SMF!!! I'm sorry your post made it to the second page of history before someone responded. I guess the forums have been hectic!!

I'm glad you signed up and decided to participate. I'd love to see some pics of your smoked food. Or as we call it here, Qview! :)

Again, welcome to the SMF

First off welcome Barbocoa 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 anything to 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.

Welcome Barbacoa. Like Racey said, it's been hectic around here with all the Thanksgiving threads and questions. So, apologies for you not getting a big welcome.

Sounds like you've got plenty of experience. Looking forward to checking out some of your work. Be sure to take some pictures and post some qview next time you smoke. Learn lots and help others. That's what this place is all about.
