    Hi everyone

    I just wanted to drop by and say HI. I'm new to smoking (I don't even have a smoker yet [​IMG] ). Trying to learn as much I can so I can get started !!!! Looks like I've come to the right place !!!!

    The forums are great and the people here seem very friendly. I hope I won't bother you all with a bunch of silly questions, I try to read as much as I can before making a post.

    My name is Lager because one of my other hobbies is to brew beer from grain (not kits or extracts). I have been a homebrewer for about 19 years now and I think I would really enjoy running a smoker. I'm finding that smoking and brewing have alot in common.
    Temperature and attention to detail are critical.

    Guess what my favorite type of beer is, LOL !!!!

    Cheers, Lager

    Welcome aboard!

    We love questions so ask away. I'm relatively new to smoking also and this place has taught me numerous things. I can honestly say I am a Pit Master now. (Only in my own mind and backyard though! [​IMG] )

    Where are you at? You may have some smoking neighbors that'll invite you to their place to use their smoker.

    I'm a redneck.. Can you guess MY favorite beer? (Anything FREE!!!)

    Enjoy the site..

    Welcome Lager -

    There are no silly questions. In fact we do get a bit silly sometimes that's good for you! I too brew my own beer. If you get an All-In-One smoker it can double as a brew stove.

    welcome to SMF. any question is a valid question. it might sound silly to you, but it might be something no one has thought to ask before, but never thought to ask.

    Just my 2 cents...

    If you're gonna buy a smoker, try to buy one from a store so you can actually go there and see it. (This is not so easy to do here in Atlanta).

    I bought via the internet from 2 different companies and recieved 1 defective smoker and 4 damaged smokers. The manufacturers don't pack 'em real well! (On my end there was a lot of packin & unpacking and shipping back-n-forth...months went by...NOT FUN.)

    I finally went to Wal-Mart and bought #6. It wasn't my 1st or 2nd choice of brand or model, BUT I was able to tear that box open and get a good look at that sucker! Now I'm smokin'!

    I hope you have a better experience.

    Welcome & Good Luck!
