New From Mississippi


Joined Nov 20, 2013
I'm from south Mississippi and began seriously smoking about two years ago with the purchase of an Oklahoma Joe.  Prior to that, I spent a couple of years with an 18" Webber Smokey Mountain without much sucess.  It would do pork butts well but I couldn't cook a rib to save my life.  The WSM is now in the weeds and the OK Joe is the star of the show after a few mods I'll share on a new thread.  I smoke every weekend during the summer and recently had the pleasure of turning a pork butt into a ham.  Looking forward to learning more and sharing the little bit I have learned over the last couple of years.
