I got my AQ 7/1 and have been to occupied to introduce myself.I've been reading the forum and taking notes. To date I've smoked 90 wings,6 boston butts,45 chicken thighs,and 6 racks. the Mrs. says I need to take a break (I'm not tired yet though). Our Lab doesn't agree. She loves the AQ. I learn more every time.

They say smoking is bad for you... who are they!

Welcome Willy! Sounds like you've been busy. Imagine, if you will, smoking all that meat the 'old way.' Continuous tending of fires, opening and shutting of vents, loss of sleep, etc.

Just sign the pledge, to never tell your friends how easy Cookshack makes it!!
2 weeks and 6 Boston Butts?

Now, there is a gentleman that knows how to season a CS the correct way.
Cal, speaking of seasoning... I was three hours into the initial "seasoning",when we got talking about dinner. I couldn't take it any more,so I got a can of chicken breast,beat an egg, mixed in bread crumbs added a splash of apple juice formed into patties sprinkled with C/S spicy chicken rub and placed on foil for the last hour.Rolls,fries,Yuengling lager and we called it dinner.

Cal,
Sounds like we have a smokeaholic on our hands, better get the packers out, he needs something to slow him down a little before the wife puts the brakes on. Glad to have you aboard Willie, you will fit in nicely here.
My wife said the same thing, I just mix it up during the week so my smoker and I can bond on the weekend. Wink
Bubba, Thanks for the kind words. I am trying to up to speed on this as fast as I can. My cousin and her husband want me to do ribs and pb for the concert in their vineyard in the middle of August. The pb is easy, the Carolina sauce Smokin' had on another thread is a big hit. My ribs need more work. My wife was complaining until I told her the weekend would pay for 25% of our AQ. I appreciate the info shared here. when I get behind my ears dried I hope to be able to contribute some.
P.S anyone gunna be in centeral Pennsylvina the middle of August? give a shout out to me, bring a camper and of course your CS!
Hey, start a thread in the rib section and we'll help on the next ones!

I find that ya will be your hardest critic, but heck just ask, because so many of us are still learning. I have never had a guest complain or walk away hungry, but it might be the adult beverages!lol

I'm still learning on the ribs and the adult beverages is point well taken, I'll have to stop and get some beer next time, but I hate to taint my taste buds. Cool
