I came to learn

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
My name is Chris and I have a smoking problem.

I have always wanted to learn how to smoke and BBQ properly so I joined this forum to pick your brains and hopefully show off some of my future skills.

I recently aquired a used but in good shape BBQ Grillware vertical propane smoker and purchased a Taylor digital thermometer. I plan on purchasing the Maverick ET-73 thanks to this site.

First beer is on me!

For Those of you New to Smoking, be sure to check out Jeff's 5 Day Smoking Basics eCourse.

I Would Highly Suggest Reading these posts on Food Safety by bbally.

This thread will tell you basically everything you need to know and the man explaining it is
both a ServSafe Instructor and a HACCP Instructor.

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.

Hi Chris,

We all have the same "problem" icon_wink.gif

You have the tools ( propane smoker, Taylor Thermo and soon an ET-73 - Exactly what I use to smoke biggrin.gif) to turn out some great "Q".

Start off with something tasty and fairly easy......chicken or turkey (whole would be nice!) or a pork butt or 2.

Also.......very important.........Tell the wife/girlfriend that you must watch the smoking process carefully and consume many cold adult beverages during the process in order to achieve success icon_cool.gif

Welcome aboard, Chris! Obviously you have already discovered the wealth of info shared here by all the great members who hang out here.

I must warn you of thing: the next time you make a statement here regarding having a smoking problem, it will likely be in the context of not being able to smoke often enough...it happens to almost everyone...when you hit that stage, just smoke WAY more than you can eat so you can stock up the freezer for those days when you can't smoke. icon_smile.gif

Good luck on your growing addiction to smoke!
