    Just joined, thanks for all of the great info

    Jeff here in San Jose, CA. Used to have a used offset smoker and two things bugged me about it. 1) My kids were just the right height (and age) to get burned by it and 2) it was just too hard to control the temperature so I was typically disappointed after a half day of work.

    Just bought a small propane smoker to get back into the game (I checked the reviews here so I knew what I was getting into ). My goal is to get good at the staples of ribs, pork butt and brisket and maybe one day offer some good advice to someone else.

    Thanks all,

    Welcome aboard Jeff


      Welcome Jeff! Thanks for your support here. Stickburners are not friendly to small kids anymore than a wood stove is, that's for sure. Hopefully we can be of assistance to you as you master that new smoker and rekindle your hobby. Following Meatheads recipes to a T is the first step to success. If you need smoker help or other advice just holler!

      Since this is your first post, please check out our homework assignment post for new members, it contains a few how-tos and please-dos!

      Hope to hear & see more from you.
