I live in California and have just made my first smoker out of an old weber! I smoked salmon today and it was delicious! cant wait to try other things!

Howdy Smokemom,
Glad to have on board. Sounds like the smoker is working well for you so far, keep us posted on your future smoking adventures.
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.
thanks for the warm welcome!!!

i want to try pork next... any suggestions on the cut of meat to try? a special rub?

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!
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.}
You crack me up!
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Got anything else on sale?
thanks Monty!

I just came home from the store with a turkey breast i am going to soak in brine and smoke!

I'll let you know how it turns out!
UUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHH, Okay! Thought you were headed for pork. Once again, there is a wealth of knowledge here! And if you need a hand don't be afraid to holler!
i was going to get pork but saw the turkey and it ended up in my cart!!!!!!

it has no skin on it.... will it still stay moist? i know i need to put it in brine...anything else that would help it along?

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!
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.
