New guy from North Georgia


Joined Aug 13, 2022
New guy checking in from the North Georgia Mountains. Found this forum from a link someone posted on another forum. Been lurking for a while and finally decided to join.

I enjoy grilling, smoking, sous vide and cast iron cooking. I currently have a Camp Chef XXL vertical smoker, Char Griller Classic charcoal grill, MHP WNK 4 gas grill, ANOVA AN500 sous vide circulator and too many cast iron pans, griddles, etc to name off.

Fairly new to pellet smoking but I'm enjoying it so far. I used to have an Oklahoma Joe Longhorn offset smoker but we had a tree fall in a storm and it crushed it. I'll eventually get another one, but with four kids and working 70+ hours per week I found myself using the offset smoker less often than I've been using the pellet smoker. It's nice to just "set it and forget it" so to speak.

Anyways, I look forward to learning some new things and interacting with y'all. Seems to be a great group of folks here from what I can tell.

Thanks y'all.

Just threw 2 pork butts in the smoker. Rubbed them in Meat Church Gospel rub and rested in the fridge for an hour before I threw them in. Gonna do an overnight smoke at 225°. Not gonna wrap them or spritz them at all. I left the fat cap on and am smoking them fat side down. Gonna feed the fam tomorrow and the guys at work on Monday. I made one the same way a few weeks ago and planned on bringing some to work but the family wouldn't let me take the rest in, lol.
