Newbie from Fla

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi, my name is Jim and I live in Clarcona, wideplace in the road outside of Orlando. I just received a smoker for my birthday. We did some ribs and they turned out ok, rub not great, working on that problem. Will do some more ribs tomorrow for the Superbowl, trying a couple of different rubs on those. I purchased some raw link sausage from Publix today and would like to smoke these. Any ideas they are already in casings. Not ready to tackle the sausage making yet, have to get my rlibs and brisket down first. Looking forward to some great smoking and reading this forum. Thanks for all of the help.PDT_Armataz_01_42.gif

From one Jim to another welcome to SMF. Tyhe great thing about this passion is that even our mistakes are still pretty tasty. I'm sure some of the sausage experts will be along shortly to answer your questions.

Well I escaped from Orlando/Winter Park almost 9 years ago. Can't say I miss it in the lease. At anyrate a very good store bought rub is Durkee's Chicken and Rib Rub. If you feel like making your own, Google up MDM Rib Rub. Don't let the amount of sugar fool you, it is very good.
Don't over do your sausage, once that skin starts a good wrinkle, you are done.

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.
