Hello from Spring, Texas


Joined Jul 15, 2016
A quick introduction. My name is Alex, currently living in Spring, TX grew up in Cut-N-Shoot, TX. I'm an R&D operator in the oil, water and little bit of everything industry.

My first smoker was delivered 2 weeks ago, a Luling offset. The smoker and I have 1 smoke under our belt, 9lbs. porkbutt, bacon wrapped boneless pork rib's and chicken breast, with that south Texas smoke (mesquite wood). The wife was happy with the taste, I definitely have a lot to learn.

ALLRIGHT...another Texas smoker and on the Gulf Coast. I also am in Houston on the north side. You have found the right group of very experienced folks who have provided an apparently endless source of info, advice and encouragement. You will get to know the wizards in the group. The one that cooks in our kinda climate and has a great, long list of recipes and techniques posted is Gary S. Click the down arrow by his name above and Follow Him. That is a good way to follow the posts as you will get a daily email with his posts. I also recommend Following Chef JJ. As you have an offset smoker watch for those that also have offsets. I have and MES so I follow mostly folks with them. Gary S is the exception.
