Newbie in St. Louie

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. After about 6 months of reading all of your posts, I've finally gotten around to registering a profile.

My wife surprised me with a Char-Griller Smokin' Pro for V-day this year, and I've really been getting into it. In fact, I smoked a bristket the first weekend I had it, despite the snow on the ground! What an 'interesting' experience. Since then, I've made some of the suggested mods for the model, and things are going smoothly.

Anyway, my dad had a Brinkman offset smoker when I was growing up, and so I've always wanted to get into the game. I look forward to hearing all your advice and hopefully offering a fresh perspective on things.

Best Regards,

Welcome aboard, Andy! What took you soooooo long!?!?!? LOL!!!

As you already know, you'll find everything you need to know about outdoor cooking, but fire away about any questions or concerns, especially if you get stranded doing a search.

Everyone has a new way to look at things, so don't be shy.

Hi Mama's Smoke,

The brisket turned out okay... I hadn't flipped the charcoal trough over to use as a baffle yet, so there was too much direct heat assaulting the meat. In short, I think I overcooked it.

But hell, it was early feb. and I was so in the mood for some BBQ'd meat that it tasted great anyway.

I just opened my photobucket account, so there will be some Qview pics with my next post.

Welcome to SMF, Glad to have you with us. This is the place to learn, lots of good info and helpful friendly Members.

For those of you new to Smoking, be sure to check out Jeff's 5 Day Smoking Basics eCourse.
Click Here it's "FREE" ... 5 Day 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.


Here you can get the 2009 USDA Food Safety Guide from his site.

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.
