    Howdy from Fort Worth, TX!

    Found you while googling info about various trailered smokers. I'm nuts about doing research, especially before a big purchase.

    Currently, I'm looking at Klose, Lang, Peoria and Stump smokers. But I'm open to other suggestions.

    Jambos look sharp, but expensive, especially given the price to capacity ratio.

    But I could talk about, listen about, and drool over pictures of, smokers all day.

    Maybe I'll get to meet some of you at local bbq comps in the DFW area.

    BTW, my folks live in Kansas, 15 miles west of Missouri. I'm thinking about visiting them during the American Royal, and looking around at the smokers that show up.

    BTW, just for grins I tried what I'd read in one of Paul Kirk's books:

    I put a thermometer in the lid of my Weber kettle grill, near the vent, and tried smoking some chicken last weekend. Indirect: coals, wood and water pan on one side, meat on the other side, above on the grill.

    Came out well. But I did learn that, as heat rises, the temperature reading at that point is about 50 degrees higher than where the meat is.

    So for that contraption, I need to cook at where the thermometer reads 300 degrees to achieve a nice smoke at an actual 250 degrees.

    It was fun messing around with it. And it's nice for days when I don't feel like uncovering the big smoker. Like on rainy days.

    Thanks for the links, mballi. I'll check 'em out.

    Just got back from Kroger and Walmart.

    K had babyback ribs for $2.97 / lb. Walmart had spare ribs for $1.58 / lb.

    Freezer has new occupants now! Can hardly wait to use 'em!

    Thanks, Meateater. Gotta ask: What are the "green" links in your post for? And I assume a "Qview" is a pic of a smoker in action or the resulting product?

    : )

    Yep, Qview is posts of pictures. Easiest way is to use a photo share site like photobucket. Post lots of Qview of your smokers and smokes 'cuz we all like to drool! Check out my links below in my signature, there's quite a few Qviews in each, lol! (I'm Qview craziee!)
    Welcome, btw, to our SMF family, I'm also in FW, was a meat man for 30+ years. Don't hesitate to ask questions, we're all here to help! The green link just shows and explanation of the word or letters, just pause your mouse over it. Enjoy!
