Howdy from Atlanta

  1. Greetings from Georgia! I'm new to this forum, but have done a fair bit of smoking over the years. Until a few weeks ago, I did most of my smoke cooking using my trusty old Weber kettle grill (cooking indirect, of course), but recently, at my wife's urging (believe it or not!) I got a beautiful Chargriller offset smoker, which I have nicknamed "the new hotness."

    I've done mostly grilling in the Chargriller until this point, although I just finished a beautiful batch of smoked pork chops a little while ago. Tomorrow, though, I'll get to really put it through its paces, when I'll smoke up a couple of racks of pork ribs. I'm also going to do a couple of fatties, which is an idea that had never occurred to me before I found this forum a few days ago.

    Anyway, I'm glad I found this place - I've learned a lot just reading for the last few days, and I'll hopefully get to learn a lot more... and maybe even teach a thing or 2.

    Welcome aboard DM. This site is great, I had never smoked before and while I am still an amatuer I am doing great with all the help supplied by the other members.

    Welcome Dead!
    We like pictures so don't hesitate. Let's see those ribs.
    You will get used to your wife and family asking why you have to take pictures of everything you smoke before they can eat.
    Smoke on!

    Welcome to SMF deadmessengers!!! It always helps to have the wife on board. Enjoy the forums.
  7. Welcome to the forum DM. If you haven't already, search the forums for "Chargriller" and you will fine tons of great info on modifiying it to turn it into a much better smoker. I've had one since Christmas and have done a few mods and she cooks great. It's not bad out of the box, but can be improved.

  16. Welcome to SMF.
  17. So, I'm putting my chargriller through it's paces. I have a chimney going, and the ribs are rubbed and ready to go. I'm also doing what I call a "poor man's pastrami" today, a corned beef brisket flat rubbed with lots of black pepper and garlic salt and smoked.

    Food porn, you ask? But of course...


    More later...
