    Newbee from Warner Robins, GA!

    Hello everyone. I've been perusing the site for several weeks and have learned a lot about the art of smoking and BBQ. I figured knowledge is worth something, so I joined today! I'm new at smoking and just recently bought an electric smoker. I've come to realize that it was probably a mistake and will be looking for a pellet smoker in the near future. In the mean time, the electric does okay and is easy to use, no muss, no fuss. Everything I've smoked so far has come out pretty good but not exceptional. Anyway, enough rambling.

    Welcome jub jub! Glad to have you aboard. GA is about as popular a state here as NC and TX are. Great to hear you're learning from the site, that's what it's all about, that's the mission here. My good friend/bro in law just bought an electric and he shares your sentiments- he makes some good eatin' but wishes he'd have gotten (in his case) a propane smoker, something with a little more oomph. Electrics are by far the easiest to acquire and operate on a budget to skill ratio, but the hardest to turn out amazing end results. They're pretty good at doing fish like salmon.

    When you get a minute, check out the main page by clicking the top-left tab titled "The Pit", and view Pit Boss' welcome letter and the Tips letter. This will help you in filling out your signature, as well as help you in posting pics.

    Again, welcome aboard and we look forward to having you share anything you can!

        Hi David. I retired from the AF while stationed at Robins and decided to stay. I work for a contractor that does business with the base, but our actual office is downtown.

        I guess I need to work on a sig.

        Thanks guys for the welcome!

            Cool. Were you with the C-130 squadron? I flew C-130s in the Nav position.

            How long you need to fill out that sig?

              I was in the 5th mob, short for mobility. Shortly after I got there, we broke into squadrons. I was in the 53rd squadron. I was superintendent of our shop which consisted of refrigeration and power generation. We were always partying and trying different ways to burn/ smoke meat. It hasn't been until late, that I have figured, there must be a better way!

                And that "better way"? It's spelled "stick burner".

              BTW, I'm pretty much a post whore, so when I get this smoking thing figured out, I'll be on TV. Lol

              The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!
