ID:	35535 Danny is my nick name. Daniel McWhirter on Facebook. I use charcoal smokers in Leon Springs, Texas, between San Antonio and Boerne. I like to smoke briskets to "waba waba," make burnt ends meat candy, and smoke most anything edible. I've always wanted to learn how to make long lasting smoked chickens and small turkeys, with that almost translucent meat look, that can be shipped un-refrigerated, like we used to get by mail fifty years ago from La Grange or Schulenberg smoke houses.

    Welcome and thanks for the support!!!

    I'm in east Texas. Briskets and Pork butts out here. I've yet to mess with cooking a lot of ribs for other peeples.

        Cool looking smoker! Is it manufactured, modified or home-built? A friend of my uncles' made a similar looking rig from and old capsule shaped propane tank. Welcome!

          Manufactured. I think a Brinkman? It was recommended summer of 13 here on Amazing. I ordered it from Amazon. It has a fair wall thickness of about an eighth inch. It is nevertheless difficult to keep up over 200F. I end up wrapping my briskets and finishing in the oven.

          Had to look up Waba waba I do vaguely remember the translucent meat you speak of, though I only seem to see fish like that today.

            Waba waba is a term I saw here on Amazing. When you can punch one end of the brisket with your finger and the whole thing dances "waba waba."
