I was really glad to find this group. Been cooking, smoking , grilling for 30+ years..... I'm 52. Bought my 'dera 6 years ago, gas burner, wheel and temp mods. This thing has the "Conehead Seal of Approval...... MASS QUANTITIES (a Saturday Night Live thing from years ago). I have loaded it out many times and enjoyed sharing the bounty. There are a lot of great tips and recipies here that I will have to try.

Q preference is spicy and sweet.

Use pecan with a splash of mesquite. Plenty of wood down here now.....
Ivan recently dropped MANY MANY trees.....for Q'n - Oak, Pecan mostly. Want to try apple and other fruit woods for a change.

8) Scoville up...... !
Like peppers too..... grew 160 plants a couple of years ago. 7 varieties...Did up about 30 gal of salsa, made pepper jelly, pepper relish, dried all I could and gave away the rest.

Look forward to some mssg posts and pics.

Qd,
Welcome to our part of the que world!!!!!!

Krazy here at times, but lots of good Que info, a joke or two, and a great time overall.
Place is addictive--for sure!

Where-abouts in LA? I lived in Ozark for 17 years and am across the "insignifigant" State Line in Marianna.

BTW.....how do I get rid of the word "Quote" before the selected text is highlighted? I need a tutorial on the features of this Mssg Board !!!!

Hey Tim,

I live in central Baldwin county.... between Mobile and Pensacola....rual area near Fairhope. Any Brethren in the general area besides yourself? I'll have to look at the map to pin down Marianna.

Yea, think I'll enjoy all of this...............

Worked all weekend on a home addition project and finished off with Survivor @ 7:00 before crashing. Hate I missed it.

I'll look in the guide to see if it's on again. Maybe I'll feed TIVO the search word BBQ and see what hits I get.

Thanks for the welcome.

No, but I want to try smoking a number of different kinds and do the grinding into power for use in a rub thing.

Had used a dehydrator before but smokin'em got to be better.

You?

Welcome to the gang, Qd!

Hey, that's a nice part of the country you live in. How'd Mobile come through the hurricanes this year? I like to think those big ol' oaks are still standing....

Welcome Qd, one of my favorite BBQ joints is Dick Russells in Mobile. When we go to FLA we stop for dinner and spend the night so we can have breakfast.Not to many BBQ places that serve breakfast.They have the best bacon i ever ate.
