Go Huskers!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
First timer here from Nebraska. I got an MES about 6 mo. ago and have been hooked ever since. Soon I'll be moving to a 22.5" WSM or Traeger. Any Comments on which is better for true smokey bbq?
I'm a huge Nebraska football fan and can't wait to throw some football parties next fall combining my old love, football and my new passion, smoking.
I've been lurking for a while and find this site full of useful info. As a newbie I'd be lost without it.

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.

I'm a newbie here too, but it's a fun site with lots of information from some real pros. Thanks for your service to our great country. I've got a Traeger Li'l Tex but want to upgrade to a USA built MAK. Suggestion, hit the meat sales and stock up so you have plenty on hand to experiment with, summer is right around the corner.

All kidding aside welcome to the board and maybe we can meet up in Lincoln this November, I'll have my smoker full of some prime corn fed Nebraska beef!!

I'm always up for tailgating with some good bbq and a few beers. Look me up before the big game! That's a nice looking drum. Did you make that? I'd like to get one just like it...but in RED of course.

Yes, the spring game tickets are in hand! I'm also a season ticket holder and rarely miss a game.
