newbie - checkin' in

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by rather be in the keys, Oct 1, 2007.

  1. I just got my smoker. Tried out a few things - fattys, chicken, ABT's,

    A guy can't live on that alone, so I'm looking for help at every turn.

    I can't wait to dig in and learn.

    Welcome to the best smokin' site on the net! Don't be afraid to ask what you don't know and share what you do... we're a friendly bunch here!

    So, you want to try something different... try a meatloaf, or smoke a pork shoulder or a Boston butt for pulled pork. All are very forgiving and will produce a "Wow" factor among your family and friends.

    Have fun!

    Welcome to SMF !!!
  6. I bought a Masterbuilt Electric smoker. I've got a remote thermometer, couple of bags of woods, working on favorite rub (gotta keep away from garlic though).

    Got the smoker and found this forum on recommendation from a friend - KWesmoker here.

    Looking to do a pork loin next.

    Thanks for the greetings.

    Welcome to SMF keys! Glad ya found us. Try smoking mixed veggies during your next smoke. Just a suggenstion:

    zuccinni, yellow squash, onion, and bell pepper mixed with garlic, s & p, and EVOO. spread out on foil and go for it, turning every so often.

    Good luck on the future smokes.
