Canyon lake smoker.

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
First of all i want to thank everyone for all their awesome information on smoking, im new to this and have found this to be the most informative site out there. In all my years of school i don't think iv'e read as much as i have since discovering this site.
A little about me and smoker, im 26 from Canyon Lake, CA. I aquired a Brinkman pitmaster deluxe from my neighbors trash when he moved out. He said he only used it a few times in the 5 years he had it, didnt have the patients for it. So i gladly took it off his hands. Since then which has only been about 6 months iv'e smoked close to 150lbs of meat, my favorite so far has been beef ribs and Tri tip. Iv'e always enjoyed cooking and BBQ and smoking is something i am now addicted to (pun intended). Anyway I'm excited what i can learn on here, and i hope one day i will be able to share some info thats worthwhile.

Welcome to the forum. Be sure to crank up your camera the next time you smoke - you've probably already figured out we love pictures.

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...

First question?

Thanks for the warm welcome, First question. I live in the southern california Inland empire area, is there anyone that knows where i can find Wood chips or chunks other then hickory or mesquite. those seem to be the most popular around here, and dont get me wrong i like the flavor they give the meat but for some things i dont want something as harsh. I like using cherry and apple, and have heard alder is good but it is hard to find. anything helps.
