Native Texan in Los Angeles checking in...

Postby Paul_in_PVE » Tue Feb 28, 2017 1:19 am

Greetings,

Los Angeles resident here - an honor to join the forum! As a quick narrative, I am a native South Texan from San Antonio (6th generation), military vet of 11 years, and while I might be a permanent Angeleno now, there is a strain of appreciation for Live Oak-smoked brisket in my DNA that needs to be fulfilled. Was lucky to grow up around 2 grandfathers who were competition-level BBQ hands and had all the wood they needed on their property, but for some reason, the talent completely skipped my father, and I kind of have to learn on my own. I consider it a duty....

I can make good BBQ - but I need some years of practice and wisdom to make it as great as my ancestors. I have a pretty simple offset smoker at the moment that I endlessly tinker with and customize to get right, but I think that's part of the learning curve. Additionally, out in California, I gotta say it is a very different world of meat cuts, woods and other ingredients, so I might be the weirdo out here who occasionally talks about his Tri-Tip smoked over wine-barrel staves (not as good as it sounds). Definitely going to delve into some Pacific seafood BBQ, as I live about 20 minutes from a massive seafood market.

Again, really excited to learn here, and to share my mistakes with anyone else reading!

Welcome Paul - - - I'm sure that you'll fit right in with the rest of us "smoke smelling inmates" so just make yourself at home, post and post often. BTW, we are addicted to pics, especially of eatable meats and sides :tup: The ONLY PROBLEM that we might have concerning the Wine-Barrel Staves would be "what did you do with the Wine?" ;) :D AND as far as anything that swims in Saltwater "Bring It On". :salut: :texas:
