I got to thinking about how long I've been around here (March 3, 2005 for those who are curious) and wondering what my first post with pictures might have been...I guess lately I have too much time and not enough work to do at work. I think this might be it:


It was for my mom's birthday back in 2006. I had hosted the pics on imageshack....I don't even know what my username or password for that site is anymore. Might have to look into that. ... ght=#68440

When was your first post with pics? I thought it would be fun to share a pic from that first post. Or I could be wrong.....

Good question! I can't say for sure but this post from 11-22-05 might be my first:

I was using Imageshack back then but switched to Photobucket in June, 2007.

Great topic Griffin! Looking back at the archives, it appears I joined April 9, 2005. I didn't get around to posting anything until April 23, 2005.

Here's that first picture post I made on matambre;

As you'll see, while the food was great my photography skills were poorly developed at the time. Or at least in terms of using flash. I had not discovered the wonders of bounce flash yet. The matambre was so good I was asked to make it again the next weekend. Once again Griffin real cool topic idea!

Apparently mine was September 07... texas clod ... highlight=

I agree with the others... this is a great topic. When I looked back and saw that clod, I thought about how much my processes and cookers have changed since then. I had a New Braunfels Silver Smoker back then. My how things change. :D

And mine from 2007:

I want to thank everyone here for their advice for smoking my first-time pork shoulder butt roast this past Friday night/Saturday morning. The results were just great!

I did have some trouble with the keeping the temperature up Saturday morning. It was the case of too little of airflow and the ashes. I do need to do the strap mod thing and get a charcoal basket. I ended up having to clean out the ash tray and starting with new charcoals ... once I did that, I had no further temperature issues. Everything turned out so tender ... the pork butt literally fell apart when I took it off the grills.

I started of my pork butt with a generous slathering of yellow mustard and my favorite rub and let it sit in the frig for the day ... and my brisket with worcherstershire sauce and the same rub.


Then got my CG Pro up and going. I didn't notice it at the time, but you can see that I also put the initial round of charcoal too near the vent openings ... which caused me problems later on.


And the meat is on. My CG is about five year old and well used .. as you can tell!


And me from the neck down (for the sake of privacy) in my Emeril apron
