Hi everyone,

  My name is Bob and I'm been living in Georgia since 2002. Originally from Pa. and also lived in Ct, NC and current at Ga. Married with 3 kids and one grand child. Very new to this whole thing. My wife Betty has been an unbelievably great cook from the moment we met back in 1998 and is not afraid to create pretty much anything (she's looking up making a rub as we speak). My family bought me a smoker for Christmas and handed me a beef brisket and ribs as part of my gift. I've always had a passion to be a slow cooker but too intimidated to cross the line so I guess you could say my family pushed me over the line. I am now the proud owner of a Master Forge 2 door gas smoker. Got it for Christmas and put it together yesterday. All I've done at this point is season it. Looking forward to learning and meeting new folks.

Hey Roman! I haven't been back to Pa. in a long time. Guess I'm enjoying the Ga. life too much. Originally from the Pocono Mtns. My brother in law and family are down below in the Peachtree City area. Maybe we'll hook up at a BBQ contest one day!

Well considering it's my first time ever doing this and I mean first I was pretty happy with most of it. I smoked hot italian sausage,kielbasa,baby back ribs and a flat beef brisket. My neighbor who has experience in this recommended that I wrap the flat brisket in bacon which I did. Problem I had was i did about 1 hr. per pound of a 3 pounder and I took it out and checked the temp which showed 155 but when I cut in to it after letting it sit it was completely red. Would appreciate some help as to why that happened.

My wife made an awesome rub that we put on steaks last night and I rubbed the brisket in it. I'll post it later.

Overall I was very pleased for the first time doing this and first time using the smoker. Here are the pics of everything.

Bob
