Initial results with my new smoker


New member
Got my new smoker Wed. night and decided to do some ribs Fri. to try it out. For a first run I think they came out pretty good. Everybody loved them.


Here's the smoke ring.


Decided to do a Brisket and a few sausages for dinner Sunday. I still have a lot to learn but I'm loving this thing.


I can't wait to try my hand at making some bacon. Just got to find a place to get some pork belly.


Welcome, Mitch! Congrats on the new smoker!. I saw pork belly at Costco. I bought some at our local butcher a couple of weeks ago, but I'm going to try Costco next time.

Thanks for the heads up on Costco. Unfortunately I'm not a member and BJ's where I am a member was a bust. I am looking for a butcher where I might find some but there aren't many options around here. I'll keep looking though. I'm sure I can find some somewhere.


You are sure putting that new pellet grill to good use. That's some good looking grub!

The steps for brining bacon are the same as ham.

Thanks Tent and Scooter. I am real happy with my results so far. I have been reading the Cider Mill Bacon thread and other stuff in Searching for the Cure and will be trying that out for sure.
