I'm new to smokin' & new to this forum! About 5 years ago, I moved from Texas to Minnesota and have really missed havin good bbq joints within spittin distance from just about anywhere. I especially miss really good brisket. ...soooo, when my boyfriend decided to take up welding and bought a welder and a plasma cutter, then asked me for a project idea, guess what I suggested...a new smoker! So, many hours and a lotta elbow grease later (yes, his project became OUR project), I'm just getting started familiarizing myself with my new tool and learning the art of smoking. I fancy myself a pretty decent cook and am pretty good with a gas grill, but grillin' is an entirely different (and much easier) skill than smokin'...at least for me. My first attempt was with ribs and, while eventually they ended up decent, they were far from what I would call a real success. Edible does not qualify as success! Yesterday, however, I tried my hand at my very first brisket and, while I do think there is ample room for improvement, I dare say it was pretty darned yummy! This is my first post, but I'll try and see if I can get some pics in here too.
Happy cook with vittles
Just wanted to share & say hello! I'll be around lookin' for tips and enjoyin' everybody else's successes and mouthwatering pics! :-)
Thanks for a really great and amazingly active forum! Great folks and great info from what I've seen so far and tons more to explore!
