    Greetings from Albuquerque

    Hey folks,

    I've decided I've done enough lurking and need to start being active on this site. I'm new to the world of smoking, but by using this site as a guide I've had success with everything I've tried so far. I'm a poor graduate student who gets a major kick out of smoking chunks of meat for impromptu get togethers.

    I smoke on a Weber Performer Platinum with a Smokenator and a CyberQ Wifi controller. A Humphphrey's is on my dream list... seriously considering putting my tax return towards one!

    Thanks for the awesome community, I've learned so much already.

    Welcome T&P! We're glad you're here... and not lurking... lurking is cool but it's much more fun when you interact.


      Welcome my friend!

              Welcome TP! I love using the Performer with Smokenator. Glad to see that you do as well.

                I've been very pleased with the combination so far. I lust for a cabinet smoker, but as a poor grad student it's just not in the cards currently.

              Welcome T&P and thanks for the support.


                Belated welcome TriedAndProven! Thanks for the support!

                The kettle grill when set up properly will give you grade A results. I've used a few different types of cookers and my favorite is burning logs in my offset, but I can do very fine stuff on the kettle. A good quality cabinet will increase your payload and need much less tending. A good one to look at is the Backwoods Chubby (small) Chubby G2 (small/medium) or Party (large) models. But there are many as I'm sure you've discovered.

                Glad you've been "lurking" for a while, that means you surely have read the articles and tried them yourself to know what you're doing.

                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!

                  I keep getting an error when I try and add a signature. Think it's iPad related, or is there a glitch in the matrix?

                  TriedAndProven yes it's iPad-related. vBulletin and Apple products get into arguments occasionally.

                  You can either post here what you want in your sig, or PM me, and I can do it for you if you'd like. If you want any fancy formatting let me know that too.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

              Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

              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.
