A noobe checking in

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello all,
I've been lurking here for a few days and decided it's time to check in. I've done some attempts at smoking in the past with mixed results, I used the cheepie Brinkman and an incredibally cheap electric in the past. The electric was OK but just barely and was highly dependant on outside temperature, not a good thing here in MN. So, as a retirement gift (from myself to me icon_smile.gif), I got a Cajun injector electric unit. I was looking at the MES units and trying to decide between the stainless steel Sams Club unit or the basic black models I've seen at Lowes, then a local outlet (Fleet Farm), had the Cajun version on sale for $170, which I scored on.
Today I did my first batch, got some fresh brats and smoked them at 225 for 4 hours using a mix of 3/4 hickory and 1/4 apple, results were AWESOME, wife is making a list of just about every form of edible dead animal one can imagine to put into the smoker. icon_mrgreen.gif
Looking forward to picking up all kinds of tips and techniques here, and maybe even share a few of my own as my knowledge grows...

Welcome to the forum. Log in often and consider this your higher education. Hang on, the professors will be along shortly to introduce themselves. The first class you'll want to attend is Jeff's 5 day course in smoking. Can't wait to see what you'll be posting down the line.
