    Greetings everyone, just joined the Club!

    Hello Fellow Smokers! I just joined the Pitmaster Club; I'm looking forward to reading the forums here! (Because honestly, what else do I have to do right now?) Anyhow, I stumbled across Amazing Ribs awhile back, when I smoked my first brisket. I followed Meathead's recipe to a "T", and it came out PERFECT. I had invited some friends over for this inaugural brisket, and I honestly told them, "I don't know how this will turn out, we may be ordering pizza!" But it was great, and from then on, I was hooked.

    My two favorite things to smoke are briskets and pork butt. I'm still working out some kinks on ribs, probably because I don't smoke them that often. Oh, and I also smoke artichokes! I know, it's not as mouth watering as beef or pork, but trust me, they're tasty!

    I don't have a fancy electric smoker, just an old school "barrel" type offset smoker. Honestly, it works great, you just have to keep an eye on it. And because I live in Arizona, I have a steady supply of mesquite wood from the trees on my property, so I smoke with that, plus pecan or sometimes hickory. I prefer to smoke low and slow, especially since my barrel smoker can be hard to "dial in" at higher temps. I usually have it somewhere between 180-220. I did invest in a quality thermometer system, which cost almost as much as the smoker itself. Worth it!

    I hope everyone here is staying well, and (mostly) sane. I'll be smoking brisket and ribs this weekend, probably while sipping some bourbon. Happy Smoking, everyone!

    P.S. I'm a woman. Yes, my husband is a lucky, lucky man.

              Interesting that you use a “barrel smoker” as you call it. Ther’s a many members would give a lot to have unlimited mesquite to cook with and only even. Whew! You are very savy at fire control, which is a must with what yer cookin on. Cool! Welcome, eat good & have fun!
              We would be interested in yer pics of yer cooker & maybe even some of the wood.

                          I admit it was a challenge at first, but I've got it dialed in now, so thanks! And yeah, I do feel really lucky to have mesquite here. I'll upload some pics this weekend!
