New to Smoking....kind of.

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone I have been lurking on the forum for about a week and decided to join the group. I am new to smoking sort of I have a big pit that was made from old oilfield pipe but it has no fire box on it so I cook South Texas style mesquite coals well below the meat. Lots of work but it is a great afternoon. I am purchasing MES 40 from SAM's this week and cant wait to play with it. I mainly cook brisket and pork ribs but plan on trying pulled pork soon.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new smoker. If you can do brisket and ribs, you can certainly do pulled pork. Don't forget, we like Qview.

Welcome!! icon_smile.gif
Pulled Pork I think is the easest to do, however it is the longest from start to finish for me.

Did I say WELCOME? tongue.gif

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.

Thanks everyone I usually stay away from forums but I love to BBQ so i could not resist this one. I should be seasoning in the new MES this weekend as long as mother nature dosn't ruin all of my fun. Maybe even get in some spareribs on Sunday. Then if it is up to me I will smoke meat and cigars everyweekend after that.
