Hey folks! Just sayin HI to my brother smokers! I do have a little burnt mesquite under my belt, but I ain't no professional. Been using those "Texas Hibachi" 55 gallon drum pit for most of my life. For the price, you really can't beat them, but I really want to get something with thicker metal and a seperate firebox. Right now, my "hibachi" is fitted with a thermometer on one end of the barrel. That is usually where I set the meat at. The fire is always at the opposite end, close to the vent door. Anyway, look forward to learning something new and swappin out ideas and recipes.
TexasNightTrain, glad you made a stop here at the SMF. Plenty of great reading here, enough to keep you entertained for weeks on end.
Gee y'all!
Thanks for that welcome! Sounds like a really tight knit group here. Too bad that it is Sunday. Reason I say that is because if it was Saturday, I would fire up the pit, get the camera, and post some play by play pics of a slab of pork ribs. Unfortunately, I don't know how to fire up the pit without beer and music getting involved
. And by the time I pull the ribs off, the effects of the Shiner Bock is going strong!! Gotta be at work tomorrow!! So, maybe next weekend.........

Thanks again for the welcomes!
Damn, There's that beer again!!! Only things I hated about leaving west Texas for Colorado was Shiner Bock and Blue Bell ice cream. Well, that and Cowboys football, Stars hockey, and a bunch of good ol boys that I call friends. Oh and mesquite wood once I learned that it doesn't grow on trees here like back home :)

Welcome aboard Texas Night Train. That handle makes it seem like you might run the Sante Fe railroad lines a little?

You should try some Corn Pops mixed in with that Shiner and Blue Bell!!
The Night Train is something that I am eyeing pretty hard right now.....Lets see if I can get a pic up.....

Ahh, of course. I've not seen one yet. I sold my '97 Springer back in 2001 and until I get my new house, I'm not even gonna temp myself to look at bikes. :)
Hi TexasNightTrain!...Welcome to the SMF!...
...We're glad to have you aboard!!...

Sorry it took so long to welcome you, but I've been offline due to ISP/computer problems since 2 July...

Until later...
