New Guy from Northern Michigan

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey there everyone. Im 27 and just started getting into smoking. I just bought myself a small electric smoker made by Masterbuilt. It reminds me of a small college frig. Anyway I just did my first project which was a 2lb cornish hen. I made some brine up of tender quick salt and brown sugar and soaked it for 2 hours. Then I put it in the cooker for 2 hours at about 150 and then about 3 hours at 250. I used some apple wood chips that I cut myself. Anyway, im glad to be a part of the forum and have lots of questions.

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...

Thanks for all the welcoming messages! This site looks to have lots of information. I wish I had a full time internet connection to spend lots of time on here, but I dont. So for awhile you may not see me on here for some stretches of time. I will do my best to be part of the forum as often as I can. Thanks again!
