My friends all call me Bert and I stumbled on this forum by accident. I was looking for recipes for stuffed jalepenos (ABT's) when I found this forum. My wife's nephew just got back from serving in Afghanistan and is coming to dinner this weekend. She asked him what he wanted to eat, he told her stuffed jalepenos. Now the hard part for me is deciding which recipes to try first. I live in northeast Texas and enjoy all kinds of cooking. I am somewhat of a novice in the area of smoking but I have a good mentor to help me when I run into a problem. I am not sure what brand of smoker I have but I do know it works good. I have had success with ribs and pork butt roast. I am really looking forward to exploring this website and learning everything I need to know about smoking meat!
