Hey everyone! Just doing the initial post thing here. Been smoking for a while relative to my age. Learned the difference between grilling and BBQ somewhere between college and the age of 25. I do hot smoke, cold smoke, low and slow, grill and am big on experimenting with different methods/materials/procedures to find that perfect taste and texture. Also grow and make my rubs from scratch having the great growing climate where I'm at. Regularly do chicken, pork butt, brisket, all types of ribs, salmon (cold and hot), bacon (cold and hot), and much more. Have frequented this site in the past for this or that and would like to thank everyone for contributing their ideas. Looking into building my own smoker and thought it was time to participate so here I am. Some pics of recent smokes/cooks... Pork Butts Brisket Couple more pics to come after they upload from my phone onto the computer! Cheers!
