Welcome aboard! It's thin blue smoke, great rubs, outatanding sauces and of course, that great pulled pork (among other things). Keep us posted and by all means, enjoy the final product.

Welcome, what part of Cali are you from. I still love to pull the weber out and cook on it. Does a good job and never gives me a hard time.

Be active on the board, and share in your sucesses and the problems you have. Sometimes you may be having the same problems someone else is having.

Hey, Smokemom!

Nothing like gaining an instant family, eh? Just add smoke and see what happens! May I suggest you go on down to the pork section and browse through. Then post any questions you may not find answered there or in Jeff's Five Day Smoking Course!

Welcome again!
Cheers!
Monty

Try a pork Butt, you almost have to try to get this cut of meat wrong. It is very forgiving, and you will get some great eats when done.

Just my $.01 worth. {holiday season, it is on sale.}

My Goodness! Almost seems like that skinless turkey breast forced irself on you! :)

Smokemom, get thee to the poultry section and post there. I really do not have much experience with turkey smoking. I raise them, butcher then and roast them, but have not yet gotten around to experimenting with smoking them.

There, an honest man!
Cheers!

smokemom, Where in Cali are you from? Think of the turkey breast like a chicken breast. I have only done turkey breast once, so I can not give that much help to you. I can advise you to go with the brine.

Welcome to SMF smokemom- you can't go wrong with a turkey breast. Find you some cheap bacon-the kind that has a lot of fat and very little lean- lay the bacon strips over the breast and 'pin' it in place with toothpicks. That fat in the bacon will baste the turkey breast as it melts.
