Hello from Chicago, Il.

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by smokerican, Jul 24, 2009.

  1. Good evening,

    I've been lurking for a few months now and decided to drop in and say hello. I've been smoking every weekend for about 2 months now and I'm hooked. I even got my old man hooked. I've learned a whole bunch from reading your guys posts here daily. Trust me if I'm not smoking, I'm either thinking about it or reading about it. Hope to soon pitch in and help others out here as well.

    I'm glad you have come out of the shadows and joined in. Now that you say your hooked where are the pics you know the Qview. it is a requirment if your hooked you have this uncontrolled feeling to take pictures of your food. So garab up the camera and get to snapping. happy to have you and your dad in the smokin family.
  20. Jibaritos eh? I love those too, but thats a whole different forum. LOL! Next time I make them I'll write down the entire process with pics. I do them on the fly so I might miss something just typing it up here.
