Smokin' in York, PA

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

Kevin here. My brother gave me his side fire box horizontal smoker about a month ago. (He went propane smoker) I have already done the ham for Easter and ribs. Tomorow will do a whole chicken and my first fattie (Philly Cheesesteak style) All of our pork is from the hogs we butcher during the winter. The hams were locally cured and the sausage I'll be using is our own make. I will be using a country sweet sasuage. So far all of my wood has been local mixed fruit wood that I get from an orchard down the road from my house. Will follow up with pics tomorrow.

First off welcome Kevin to SMF. You'll like it here cause there are abunch of good folks here that would just love to help you out with just about anything to do with smoking. We really like to have newbies here because they can bring in a new propective to how things are done. There's nothing like a new set of eyes to give and new way to make things that little differant to make things alittle better. So I hope you know about the Qview here.
Here's a link to photobucket it's free and easy to download pictures. Then if your really new to smoking Look up the E-course.
It's also free and it will give you the basics of smoking. So after all of that you just need to go grab something to smoke and if you have any question just post them here and we will answer it quickly so you don't have any mishaps with your smoke.

As promised, here is the Qview from today's adventure! It was ahugh success!

It was a great day! I learned a lot. I did not roll my fattie tight enough and most of the cheese leaked out. I also need to practice my weaving techique a few more times. But I did not let a little rain stop me and the flavor was awesome. Plus I did get to drink beer while I was a smokin"!!
