    Winter-time No-Smoking Meat Blues

    I am grasping at straws. First, let me say that I am broke, so I must work with the equipment at hand.  I have a Kingsford offset smoker that has served me well for a few years now. It is not insulated and therefore is nearly worthless in the winter. I am really craving some smoked butt. What I...

    Reposting from another sub forum

    I apologize if this annoys any of the 15 that read it before over in the "Wood Smokers" section, but I was really hoping for some info.     I am considering the possibility of adding an afterburner to my smoker.  I normally would be opposed to this entire line of thought, but circumstances have...

    Possible conversion of my Kingsford offset smoker.

         I am considering the possibility of adding an afterburner to my smoker.  I normally would be opposed to this entire line of thought, but circumstances have forced me to consider it.

    3 Butts 4 Chuckies

I never seem to have very good luck freezing pork of any type for more than a few weeks. It always seems to get a funny taste...

    Grape Vines

    I grew up basically in the woods. We would often go out and swing on the vines hanging from the trees. These would vary in thickness and have a thin shaggy bark on them. We always referred to them as grape vines. To the best of my knowledge I never saw a single grape on one though. Does...

    Family Gathering w/ Q-view

    I had a big family gathering this week. I tossed a couple butts, a brisket, potatoes and corn on the smoker. Everything came together just about right, although I think the brisket could have cooked longer in the smoker, it was a little bit tough, but still very edible and quite tasty...and...

    Greetings from Indiana

    Howdy all! I'm a 37 y/o Paramedic from Indiana. I got a Kingsford grill with side fire box a few years ago for Father's Day, managed to get it put together this year. I'm learning how to smoke things now. I figured I would at least say hi instead of just lurking. Hope to learn a lot here!
