Hello everyone...My name is Michelle and I've been reading this forum for a few months now and finally joined. Last July I received an electric smoker for my birthday...without really knowing anything we just dove in...started easy with chicken thighs, then salmon, then ribs, then ribs, ribs and more ribs...we've smoke blue fish and trout also. Today hubby is off and put some ribs in the smoker and he's going to try the 3, 2, 1... I have visions of grandeur for this summer and have picked up a few tips and tricks from this website. Look forward to putting my 2 cents in occasionally and sharing anything that turns out well! I will say my best so far were ribs I smoked for a Notre Dame tailgate party. Had 5 racks that I smoked the day before we left. Saturday game, bus load of ND fans, hubby and I in charge of tailgating, first course, smoked ribs, hamburgers, jalapeno hot dogs, kielbasa...Even though the ribs had to go through a re-heat they were excellent. They were definitely better when we first pulled them out of the smoker, but everyone said they were the best ribs they ever had...Everyones belly was full when we mentioned our main course... filet mignon, corn on the cob, shrimp, pasta with fresh peas and tomatoes and parm...to top it off, ND beat Pitt!!!
