I too have a GOSM. Check out the Propane Smoker part of the forum. It helped me answer questions that I had about ways to use my smoker. Please also consider taking Jeff's 5-Day E-Course on smoking basics.
Ask lots of questions. The folks here know smokin', and take care to give you answers based on their experience.
I am just up the river from you in Oklahoma. You are in the right place. I got a GOSM not too long ago and found this forum. I have learned alot here from everyone. I have meatloaf on as we speek. I hope its ready in time for the Texas kickoff!
I've got in-laws in Lewisville... Well I did until last week. They are moving to Grapevine... A get together would be cool. We could do it someplace close, maybe next spring or if your willing to drive about 1 1/2 hours, my in-laws have a big ol' patch of land out in Lipan... of we could make it a weekend of beer drinknig, lie telling and Q cooking out at a co-workers acreage in Will's Point... If ya want, we can work on something like that.
There are a couple of other Forums that I'm on that have annual Q-fests/bashes, but I have not had the opporunity to attend...
James im game anytime. make it a pot luck type event. if they have acreage then maybe i could pitch a tent? i hate to drink and drive, after 3 beers i have to pee, then every beer after, it takes too long to get home with all that stoping.
you let me know when you would like to do it, fall, winter, spring, summer, falter, wiring what ever is good for me.
Sounds like it could be a ton o fun.... The in-laws have plenty of space for tents as does the other place I mentioned. My co-workers place is where we all congragate for our annual company party. Learn a lot about folks you work with when you start feeding them barley pops and takillya shooters...
Now, it will be at least next spring 'fore I could even think about getting this on the calendar. Will be out of town no less than 2 weeks a month until end of March and all of my other weekends are taken up with family stuff.
But hey! That would only give us some time to plan!
that looks awsome!!!!! just let me know what time you are thinking and ill be good. ill start thinking of a way to make a smoked brisket beer so we can kill two birds with one stone. baked bean beer, chicken beer, corn on the cob beer. not sure about the patato salad beer, but we will see, smoked bread pudding beer
Well, Buzzard... I assign you the task of reminding me of this thread sometime around the end of the year... ya know in a couple of months or so. Who knows, if work lets up and we don't get a sub zero winter, maybe we can do it sometime this winter. I know a few fellas that wouldn't mind coming out, drinking beer and eating Q!
