Hello Everyone,

My name is Rick and new to smoking. I have always been interested in trying but never did until a few days before T-day. Thanks to Amazon prime and next day shipping I received my Bradley digital 4 rack the day before so I seasoned it and got a turkey in the Brine. Turned out great and moist. I have since done a few batches of quail,some meat sticks and turkey breast for lunch meat (Lot of questions on the last but will save for another post).

After a lot more viewing of this site I'm sure I could have taken a different approach such as PID (I think) and manual Bradley but will get there with time.  

Thanks to Pork being on sale for $.99 lb and lots of posts on here I just finished 20lb of breakfast sausage (5lb of 4 recipes)

Initial test sampling was all seem way to salty, will live a few days and try again.

Also thanks to the sale on A-Maze-N products on new years and all the reviews on here I just received an AMNPS and 40 lb of various pellets.

I hope to do some cold smoked cheese, lunch meats and pretty much anything else that sounds good to eat.

Attaching pictures but from what I read they have to be approved first. Had to cut Turkey in half due to its size and ate most the quail before the picture
