The wedding gift

I just got married on Aug. 5th and as a wedding gift, my bride got me a Bar-B-Chef offset horizontal smoker - my first. (If you ask me, its a fair trade for the diamond mine on her left hand) After getting back from the honeymoon, I seasoned it up and for my first session (the grill, not her hand) and smoked 12# turkey to near perfection while marinating my own liver with a few beers and keeping the guitar blues flowing all day. And so the addiction begins...
Labor day weekend will be my first all night brisket and I hope to be able to share the progress and get some feedback on my rookie efforts!

Marinating your own liver. Now that's funny. :lol: Welcome to SMF. It's a great place to hang out and learn and it sounds like your well on your way.

Welcome,

We love pics. If you can post some from your labor day liver pickling, they would be appreciated. Don't forget to check out Jeff's 5-Day E-course on the basics of smoking. Check out all the forums and don't be afraid to ask questions. These folks know smoke.

Regards,

Meowey

Hmm No idea if that's best way to get a smoker <getting married> But hey, you got one just the same. Welcome to SMF hope you enjoy your stay. Would you have to get married again to get a good digital camera or do you have one of those already? <kidding> We do like pics ..

Welcome, welcome! Glad you found us! This is the place to share the joy of your new addiction with a great bunch of people. Glad to hear the first smoke went so well. I kinda refer to the brisket as "the crown jewel", so do some home work on the technique. If you nail it, there's nothin' better!

There is a thread in the Beef forum titled Basic Brisket Cook. The opening will give you great advice on how to cook a brisket. Everything I every read, heard about, tried, experimented, dreamed of all boils down to the simple instructions in that post.

here is the link
