Hello to all you happy SMOKERS!!!

First Time doing this Forum / Chat thing a ma jig, so a little patience (more so on my part) here will go a long way. Well here goes nothing!

My name is Dan and I live in central Wisconsin. I am a happily married man with 4 children and two Grand children who all love to eat grilled and BBQed foods. I have been grilling food of all kind for 26 years now. I think Iâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]m close to mastering the grilling thing, and getting a little disinterested it, so last year I bought a Brinkman Smoke King and it made me a changed man!! I just love this Smoking thing!! Maybe in 26 more years Iâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]ll now something about smoking! (The pictures are from the Brinkman Web Site)












Iâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]ve made some smaller meals with the Smoke king now and for the most part they turned out pretty good indeed, but Iâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]m still learning and understanding the smoker. I recon patience here will help as well!

The end of May my youngest Daughter will be graduating from high school and I will be graduating to a larger Smoked Meal. I plan on 60lbs of Boston Butt and 40lbs of Brisket. We think that there will be about 100 -125 to serve so I think I have the right amount of meat. If anyone has insight with the amount please chime in. Everything will be done as a Bunn / Sandwich with the brisket being sliced and the Pork being pulled.

If anyone has any advice at all, please jump right in there, I will read all advice given!!

I do have a couple of questions that I will post separately, as this posting is getting quite long now.

I will end this with a quote of my sonâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s favorite Food Network Personality……


GOOD EATS

Welcome Dan -

I've got family in Nekosa, Stevens Point, Wisconsin Rapids and Appleton where you from? Got a good recipe for Brats when your up to makng sausages too.

The best advise I can give you on the grand smoke-out is do it at least one day before so your not up all night missing the graduation!

Welcome aboard Dano,

Hey I have the same smoker. I just made a few modifications to it and used it for the first time last saturday. Made a brisket and some sliced beef for sammiches.

Worked out great

Welcome to forum. Good peeps around here. That amount of meat, plus sides sounds about right. Just a couple of things
1. Give yourself PLENTY of time to cook it
2. Dont count on any leftovers!!

Good luck
