another new guy from michigan

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey ya'll , i'm a tool maker from the northern suburbs of detroit(actually just north of the burbs in the cornfeilds!) i've been learning to smoke meats since fall, i got a new braunfells smoker similar to the one charbroil sells now. I have been watching shows and asking questions of friends who have been smoking for years. I am starting to get the hang of it !!! but i still have lots to learn. i have smoked chickens that you can cut with a fork and ribs that fall off the bone!!! but i haven't taken the leap of faith and tried a brisket yet. tomorrow i'm doing some cornish hens and a slab of ribs!!! anyone have any tips on the hens??? i use charcoal (with a chimney) to get my fire started and i usually use oak with the bark removed for my fire. sometimes i experiment with hickory chunks or cherry pitts for smoke. i also keep a tray of water mixed with apple juice next to the fire for steam.
Hope to hear from ya'll and maybe meet up sometime!

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...
