Hello everyone, Mike here. I've been a huge fab of BBQ for many years and I love to cook. I just purchased (not arrived yet) a Traeger Texas grill, I added the insulation blanket (It's cold in Northern NM) as well as the cold smoking chamber. I purchased a pellet smoker cause we don't have much access to hard woods here. My plan with the smoker is to add some NM flair to the meats that I smoke, but I also plan on many pounds of traditional style everything. I look forward to online chats with everyone, I know there's a ton of experience on here :) My first plan is chicken (brined) and some ribs.
