Title: Pulled the trigger...
Post by: Murph on March 29, 2009, 02:14:08 pm
OK...after a couple of months of talking to fellow smokers at work and hovering around the Bradley forum....I've committed...or will be committed.  ;D   Purchased a 4 rack DBS today online...hoping to have it by the weekend to give it an initial run with some ribs!   Hmmmm....I am hungry and can't wait!!

W E L C O M E  to the Forum Murph!

Season your smoker, check out our recipe site and FAQ, and make sure you don't close the vent on the smoker all the way.

Murph,

Welcome aboard.  If you can be committed for buying a smoker there are a lot of us around that should be committed then.  Some of us many times over!  We'd all be in good company!  How did the ribs turn out - BTW?

Thanks for all of the welcomes and tips.  I'll be spending alot of time in the forums this week figuring out how to season the smoker and what to do for my first smoke of ribs.   I'm in the "Is it here yet?" mode right now....hasn't even shipped and I'll be checking the porch a couple of times today for it anyway.   ;D

Have a great week,

Murph

Murph,

Welcome to the forum.  Be forwarned, this can be an addictive place.  Best of luck with your rib endeavour.  Make sure that you season the smoker first.  Remember to come back here often.  These folks are the greatest, they never criticize (unless you really ask for it  ;D) and are always willing to lend advice.

Welcome Murph!  Great bunch of people on this forum!

Thanks Folks!

Lumpy:  I used that exact line on my wife...that's how I got my DBS!  I think it was like this "All I'll ever need is a DBS smoker, a cpl of boxes of smoke pucks and an electronic temp guage....and I'll never bother you again".  I have to "stay the course" at least for a couple of months or I may not live long enough to enjoy the fine eats that will come with my smoker.   :D

BTW...checked the porch several times and no smoker box showed up.  Guess I shouldn't have been expecting next day service when I don't think it has even left the docks yet...that will give me more time to prepare.   

Adios,

Murph

I believe that there could be lots of dittos to that line.  However, I will leave you with one thought!  Be honest with yourself - do you really think you got one over on her?  My experience is that, sorta like a tea bag, paybacks sneak up on you unawares!  ;D ;D ;D oh ouch!   ;D ;D

You know the old saying!  "A watched porch never produces eagerly anticipated boxes when you want them"!  Just forget it, take your mind away from the expectancy.  Preoccupy your mind on something else.  Look away!  and guess what!  It will suddenly appear!  It works every time!  Those UPS men are shy!  Something about the shorts I think!

I took Caneyscud's advice and stop watching the porch....and guess what....Christmas does come in March!!!   She's seasoning on the deck....I think I'm going to name her Betty.   ;D

At first, I thought that a Bradley and some pucks were all I needed. Then it happened.....the "after shock" of a Bradley set in! First comes the Auber PID, then some Bubba Pucks and jerky screens from Yard and Pool. But wait....these guys are doing Sausage! Here comes the grinder and a 5 pound stainless stuffer as well as a closet full of spice mixes, cure and casings. But wait.....these guys are doing Jerky! Here comes the Jerky gun from Cabella's with some stackable racks for the oven. But wait.....I need a Cabella's 80l Dehydrator to do this proper...my next purchase.

Also the ET-73 to monitor cook and cabinet temps, not to mention the high priced Thermapen. And then Hab's keeps posting pics of these beautiful cooks on his Treager Grill...It is an endless road I think. ???
But I love it!  ::) ;D :D

Us Boys and our Toys (Yes theres a few ladies as well) That's what I keep telling Momma. "I'm a Boy I need new Toys" Hardly ever works though unless I use the Sex or New Toy card!!!! Got me a Thermapen with that one!!!! ;D ;D ;D

The difference between a man and a boy is the PRICE of the toys!!!

And the Store...

OMG Smokin Soon,

I'm you..., just a couple of "toyools" behind.  You hit every one except for the thermapen and Traeger.  Guess it's time to do a little more research, followed by a bit more shopping  ;D ;D

Yes, a boy and his toys, but these toys pay dividends to the ladies. Once they taste what is produced from the Bradley they have a hard time saying no to any add ons. At least that has been my experience.

Anyway...welcome to the forum, I am sure you will be tasting sweet success in no time.
