Hello from North Carolina

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I've been enjoying the forum for the past 3 or 4 months and now it's time to introduce myself. I'm Tom from North Carolina. I have an 18" WSM that I've been experimenting with for awhile now. Some things have turned out good, others - well they were somewhat edible. Hey, I'm learning so it's all good right?

I've signed up and completed the 5 day smoking eCourse. I've set up a Photobucket account as I know y'all like the Q-view. And soon I will be attempting my first Fatty! You guys have corrupted me and I must taste the goodness!

Here's a few photos of what I've tried so far...

Smoked chicken breasts - tasted too smokey and way to salty - I screwed up the rub, I'll admit it...





Smoked chicken halves - these were great!



Smoked meatloaf - now that I've tasted smoked meatloaf, there is no other way to cook meatloaf!





Chicken breasts - second attempt. Much better...



Smoked turkey breast - a little too smokey tasting but better than my first attempt at chicken breasts...



Thanks for letting me hang out guys! You've already taught me more than you know. More Q-view to come as I "practice".

ALX = see you're Near Annapolis, MD. I used to live near North East, MD and loved every minute I could spend on the water. Still hold a special place in my heart for the Chesapeake Bay. Awesome crabs and a great place to get your priorities straight....

I miss it brother. I used to love catching stripers during the Spring at the mouth if the Susquehanna River and the North East River. We used to go to Sandy Point St Park off 301/50 with my buddy's Boston Whaler and go for stripers in the fall and winter.
