    Glad to see you found us here. This is the right place to learn about smoking meat. Just ask away, and some one (More like many more) will answer you. Hopefully the wind will be blowing towards Philly this week end. MMMMmmmm ribs & chicken with the sweet smell of hickory.

    Probe thermometer stuck in an apple?

    Yepper you hit it right on the head, It's really important to keep the heat just right on the time. I use a chuck of wood with a hole drilled through it. Never thought of using an apple.

    Tough Brisket

    I smoke mine at 230 untill 160 for sliceing or 200 for pulling. With a brisket there is no way around it. SLOW & LOW. Don't forget about cutting across the grain or you'll be doing more chewing and less swallowing!!

    2-2-1 w/foil pan?

    Do you just lay them in the pan and foil the pan instead of foiling each one? That sounds so much easier.

    Is the point system completely broken?

    I'm with "desertlites" I've been here a while, seen people come & go. I've seen WAY to many arguements. In my opinion this is the best smoking fourm there is. I've learned so much here. The people are so glad to help you out. I understand why some one looks for people with points to ask...

    Rib Disaster/Need Help

    Sorry to hear about your ribs, but like some of the others said I'm sure they were baby backs. I think your problem was the rub that you used. I've never had your problem, and Sam's is the only place I cane get baby backs. I think the grill mate rubs are to course of a rub. The only rub I ever...

    Walmart wood, can't get it to smoke?

    Maybe that thick ole cast iron pan needs more time to heat up. Like Travcoman45 I us an old loaf pan. That heats up real quick and strarts smoking fast. I don't think it's your wood, but that only my opinion.

    Problems with Smoking Pork Butt

    I agree with mostly of the others, you need to get a couple of probe thermometers. You can't really smoke with out them. As far as cooking butts the are really forgiving. I never brine them just rub them the night before, a little more just before putting them in the smoker. I keep the temp. ay...

    pullin up my skirt

    All I can say is like Rich said, deseed and devien them and cook them. Personally I found that the longer you smoke them the milder they are. But that may have just been a mild bunch of peppers also. I bet that's why they call them "ATOMIC" is because they're suposse to be hot!! I always like...

    Newbie, need all the advice I can get

    Dave as others have said, you can kind of smoke with a grill, but trust me you will never get the true effects of smoking with a grill. The whole idea in smoking is "LOW & slow" cooking. I really don't think you will be able to maintain the LOW temp. that you need to smoke. I'm sure you have a...

    My God are you bored? That was really good. 21.19 a gallon for water... so like how much for a gallon of beer. Hell if I drank a gallon of beer it would'nt bother me to walk to where ever I had to go. Heck that may be cheaper. I still have a 350 in my truck, the guy at the gas station waves to...

    Bush's grillin' beans

    Pinto are the best around, I'll cook them up and use the "wicked bean" recipe, and add a little brown sugar and a little molasas(?) I'll never learn how to spell that. I'm not much on store bought beans.

    Briskett Purchasing/Foil Wrap

    And after the next day, into the freezer it goes. It's just me and my wife and sometimes my brother. Plenty of left overs here. I often wonder how come there are never left over ABT'S?
