Default Ok gents, so I pulled the trigger... (Pictures added!)

And bought my first smoker yesterday. Bass Pro Shops ran a special on their Smoke 'n Grill, $24.95! Looks like a Brinkman Smoke 'n Grill (perhaps rebadged?).

Anyhow, I seasoned her yesterday, and today will be firing her up w/ some ribs and a small turkey. I've got to run up to the store and get a meat thermometer, and I'm ready to go.

I may throw on a few fatties, as well. Maybe some garlic cheddar and garlic cream cheese.

I'm excited to try cooking on the smoker, I've mastered doing them on a gasser on very low heat, but am ready for the real thing.

I may throw some apple wood on (I bought apple and hickory yesterday).

Wish me luck! I may be back w/ pics, if all goes well!

Happy Memorial Day, Farkers!

Just wait. By this time next year you will have at least one egg in your backyard if we truly got you hooked on this BBQ crack!

You know, it is the first purchase that sends you over the edge. No you experience a need to purchase larger smokers. This problem you now have is finding space for all your future purchases.

Not a bad little smoker to get started on. You will learn about fire management and all kinds of other things with it. First recommended mod is a good thermo on the front.

Default Thanks fellas

Funny thing is, I'm building some shelves, and they've got sooty fingerprints on 'em now... Guess I've gotta paint 'em! :-)

Chips go fast! Gotta get me some chunks.

About 1.5hrs before done, I'll fire up the camera and get some pics. Hmm, gimme a few and I'll put some on.

Ribs, Turkey, and 3 fatties on the way. First fatties on the smoker, I've done 'em for years on the gasser. It helps being buddies w/ the founder.

SmokeyPig, where are ya, man - grilling up a feast for M-day? Or at the ball field?? :-)



Da smoker...



Da temp... (gotta get a more precise temp gauge!)



Da goods... (wrapped - 2 sets of baby backs, 1 ruptured fatty, down below, 2 more fatties
and a boneless rubbed Turkey breast)

Congrats on the new smoker. ECB's are fun and can turn out some good Q. My old ECB would crank out a better beer can chicken than any smoker I ever owned.

Have fun with it, and keep us up to date on how it cooks!
