Greetings fellow smokers! I have been smoking meats for only 3 years now and am in LOVE. Over the years I have read these forums for tips and advice and would like to thank you guys for getting me started. I figured it's time I sign up and start making some smoking friends.

I am working with the Brinkmann Gourmet Charcoal Smoker and it fits my needs perfectly for now. Being in Chicago I have limited space in the back yard, so anything bigger won't work for now. So far I have smoked Boston Butts(Pulled Pork, this is my favorite to smoke and eat! )  Bison, Shrimp, Baby back Ribs, Beef Short Ribs,Spicy Maple Pork belly, Jerked chicken, Burgers, and more Shrimp! 

My next attempt is to smoke Brisket but I'm not sure if I am ready :/

Anyone in the northside of Chicago that wants to get together and smoke some meats????

Here's some of my meats.

Smoked Jerk Chicken

Smoked BBQ Shrimp

Texas Style Beef Short Ribs and Spicy Maple Pork Belly

Boston Butt

Bison (Guinness garlic onion brine the day before)

Hey Panda. Welcome to SMF from the NW burbs of Cicago. Those are some great looking smokes. A get together sounds like a great idea.
