Long time lurker, first time caller

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by rooriders, Nov 17, 2009.

  1. Hi, my name is Dave, and my wife bought me an electric ECB for our anniversary in August. I found this site right away and have been lurking reading about mods for my smoker.

    In October, I made my first attempt at smoking. Started with a brisket (brave, huh?) and it turned out okay, but it cooked too fast so it never got very tender.

    BTW< I get a lot of question about my username--Rooriders. Nothing naughty, but we have a hybrid camper, called a Rockwood Roo. Thus, our family became "Rooriders." (Great story, Dave. You should tell it at parties.)

    Welcome to the site Dave.
    Thought for a moment you were referring to a German Roor, but that is something different [​IMG]

    No worries about having a few smokes not work quite the way you wanted, read up, ask questions and in no time you will be pumping out excellent BBQ.
