I'm finally dipping my toes into the world of smoke and just expanding my outdoor cooking skills. Up to now I've been a basic burger, dog and steak guy on a gas grill. Always wanted to do more and am now making that commitment. After 6-9 months of research and countless hours watching video, Google searching and talking to experienced smokers, I bought a new Yoder YS640s and looking forward to getting that in a few weeks.

In the meantime, I'm watching more cooking videos and wanted to take advantage all the experience on this board. Been lurking for awhile but thought it was time to join.

Look forward to the ideas, feedback and discussions

Welcome from central Texas. What part of the state do you call home?

Not sure exactly which message you're referring to but a lot of the good folks are just welcoming you to the family from all over the US and Canada.

Hi Robert! Thank you and everyone for such a warm welcome. I'm from the DFW area.

I was initially replying to zain3737 above with that question. I didn't really understand his post and wasn't sure if it was directed to me. He wrote:

"However, when a food is listed as 'Texas Style' it usually means that it has been prepared in line with Central Style BBQ. Central Texas Style is large cuts of meat, like brisket, seasoned with just salt and black pepper, and then cooked low and slow over indirect heat. Hickory and post oak are popular smoking woods,"
