    Hey guys, i recently purchased a gas smoker and stumbled accross this site while looking for some tips. I am totally new to this world of smoking, but have loved to cook for a long time. i am a virginia resident, and look most forward to smoking ribs, pork tenderloins, briskets, and cheeses.

    I look forward to learning the tricks of the trade through this site.

    Hey Va,

    I think baby back ribs are the first thing I smoked and when we ate them we knew exactly what we had been missing by cooking ribs in the oven. Dont get me wrong, I have made some great ribs in the oven. I think you need to be a good basic cook to be a good BBQ chef. However, the deep smokey flavor that my ECB added to the ribs just cant be done any other way. You have to smoke the meat to get that flavor that we are all addicted to. Glad to have you in the SMF and good luck with your smoking.
