  1. Hello all,

    I have been an avid smoker of meats for a few years now. Here in Northern Virginia, its not too difficult to find good BBQ, but there is just something I love about cooking my own.

    I started with the Brinkman, a bullet type electrical smoker. It was a great starter and free as a gift from my job for the years of service.

    I then bought a SMVS (Smokey Mountain Vertical Smoker - propane) from a friend at work for only $40 and really got into smoking quantity as well and perfecting my quality of smoked meats.

    I enjoyed all kinds of smoked meats, but I have to say that a good rack of smoked ribs has to be my favorite. I also have a great hot wings recipe that I found on the web and tweaked it to my temperature level. 

    Another vertical smoker (Masterbuilt -dual door vertical smoker-propane )was than purchased as the SMVS seemed to lose quite a bit of smoke no matter what I did to it. It was old so that was a reason to invest in a newer vertical smoker.

    I have now dialed in my rib rub, which is my favorite off of the smoker, and again have invested in the Akorn Kamado style Kooker. Just have to say though, the wife will not let me get rid of the vertical until I can smoke some wings on the Kamado like I have done on the Masterbuilt

    I have read and heard some rav reviews and cannot wait to get it up and running. It should be delivered 1/27 - 1/29. Hopefully before this years Super Bowl.

    Anyways, hello to all my fellow and female smokers....Looking forward to expanding my knowledge.

    Welcome to the board! I need to look up some Kamado how-to videos. I'm running an offset.

    You're right about wanting to hog the fun of smoking the meat yourself. That's really true for grinding, where you decide what goes in. Have fun exploring this place!
