Hello from Kingman, Kansas!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I'm Kenny Youngers, 38 yrs old, married with 4 kids, been living around Kingman my entire life. I have been smoking meat for about 3-4 yrs., and have been a big fan of Smoking-meat.com and this forum since I started. I have an old Coleman "smoke machine" upright propane smoker that my wife found a garage sale for $10, and decided I would try a learn how to use it. This unit uses a propane burner, lava rock, and a water pan with upper and lower cooking racks. Since I got it, I've modified the burner area by cutting and adding a door to it to add wood easier, and I use metal baskets to hold wood chips/chunks right over the burner. I've actually had pretty fair luck with this thing, even though it's made of thin material, etc...I have to cut spare ribs in half to fit them in...but I've had many great meals of ribs, pulled pork, turkey, and ham from this thing. I really can't complain about it. Then, recently, I found an old Oklahoma Joes horizontal unit at a garage sale for $30 that you can read about in the wood smokers section of the forum. I haven't gotten to cook with this one yet... I've learned a lot from reading the forum, and having my questions answered by all of you very kind people! Thank you!

First off welcome Kenny to SMF. You'll like it here cause there are alot of really good folks that would just love to help you with anything to do with smoking. Now we like having new folks here to give a new prospective on some of the ways we do things around here. Now if you are really new then I would suggest that you sign up fir the 5-day E-course it free and it will give you the basics on smoking and a few recipes too. Here's a link to it:


then you will have a method to your newly found madness and believe me it will be a madness. Then when you start smoking things you will have to learn how to post the pictures / Qview 

here. So here's a link to a tutorial on how to post your Qview so we can see what your doing.


Now the next thing you have to do is run out and get something to smoke. Then just smoke it and if you have any questions just post  them here and we will answer all your questions that you might have. Oh yea there's no stupid questions we were all there in the beginning and we just really like to help others enjoy the fabulous smoked foods that we do. So again


Welcome to Your New Addiction

thankx everyone for making me feel so welcome! I will try to post some pics of my next smoke. There's an amateur bbq contest coming up at my local hometown county fair, and I'm thinking of trying it. We'll see if my 3-4 yrs. of experience will be good enough...
