Pulled the trigger...
« 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.

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
